170 Book Recommendations for the Latinx Book Bingo | Latinx Heritage Month 2020

Latinx book bingo

Hi everyone! Today I bring you a post that I have put a lot of work into and that I hope you find useful. I’m excited to share recommendations for the Latinx Book Bingo 2020, which I’m co-hosting again this year and it’s taking place from September 15th to October 15th!

Before getting into the recs, here are some things you should know:

  • All the books included on this list are written by Latinx authors
  • I haven’t read every book on this list, but I tried to read #ownvoices reviews to make sure the Latinx rep was good. Nonetheless, if you know the rep in one of the books is not good, please let me know!
  • Besides the title and author, I added information like the genre of the books and the kind of rep they have, so you could know if it works for more than one prompt in the bingo board.
  • Click on the title and it will take you to the Goodreads page for the book.
  • The amazon links in this post are affiliate links, so if you use it I may get a small commission, that doesn’t affect the price of your book but it helps me out and it compensates the work I put into this list! 
  • If you are not buying a book, but would like to support me or compensate the work I put into this list (it’s not necessary or expected, but if you want to), you could buy me a Ko-fi
  • If you can’t find a book that interests you and fits one of the categories on this list and need more options, here are the lists I made for the bingo the past two years: 90 Book Recommendations for the Latinx Book Bingo + 100 Book Recommendations for the Latinx Book Bingo. Maybe you’ll find what you’re looking for there!

With that out of the way, here are the recommendations:
