Hi everyone! I’m really excited to share with you all that … the Latinx Book Bingo is officially coming back in 2021! This is the forth round of the readathon and Paola and I are so happy to be hosting it again this year.
The Latinx book bingo will take place from September 15 to October 15, which is when we celebrate Latinx Heritage Month. The goal of the readathon is to highlight books written by Latinx authors.
The aim of the bingo is to read as many Latinx books as you can, guided by the prompts on the bingo board. You can also try to get a bingo (read all prompts on a single line or row — you can read horizontally, vertically, and diagonally), but it’s not necessary, we just hope you read some Latinx reads during this month.
We always want to promote intersectional stories, so while there’s one square that says intersectional MC – which prompts you to read a book where the main character is Latinx AND is part of the LGBTQIA community or has a mental illness or is neurodivergent or disabled- we hope you try to read as many intersectional stories as you can throughout the readathon.
If you want up to date information or recommendations, follow @LatinxBookBingo on Twitter or @LatinxBookBingo on Instagram. You can use the #LatinxBookBingo hashtag for all your related tweets and posts and we will retweeting and sharing on our platforms.
I will be posting a tbr and a recommendation list in the next couple of weeks in case you need help setting up your tbr. Also, my twitter and Instagram dms are always open if you need recs!
I hope you can join us! If you have any questions, please let them in the comments!
