Hi friends! LatinxBookBingo has ended and I figured I should probably do a wrap-up. I had some pretty big plans for this reading challenge. Unfortunately, I did not get to accomplish all the things I wanted to do. What can I say? Life happened. Let’s get into the wrap-up and we’ll get a bit more into the whys.
First, I failed at keeping you all updated on a weekly basis. My plan was to hopefully complete at least two books a week so I could post a reading update for you here on the blog on Fridays. My thought was to let you know what I read that week and how many challenges were completed. Then let you in on what I was currently working on or what I would pick up next. That went sideways when my reading took longer than expected. I was enjoying the books I was reading but I didn’t have as much time to dedicate to reading as I would have liked. Thus, no weekly update.
That said, I’m going to call it a success since I read more than one Latinx book and for the most part, I really loved the books I read during this challenge.
Here are the challenges I completed:
During the LatinxBookBingo there was a week-long readathon called LatinxAthon. There were five challenges. I completed the Voices and Pride challenges.
Here are the books that I read during these challenges:
American Street by Ibi Zoboi – This completed the Voices challenge for the LatinxAthon. It also completed the Refugee/Immigrant Story, On Cover Representation, and the Afro Latinx MC challenges for LatinxBookBingo. I rated it 4 stars.
The Deepest Roots by Miranda Asebedo – This completed the Magical Realism and SF/F challenges for the LatinxBookBingo. I rated it 4 stars.
Final Draft by Riley Redgate – This completed the Pride challenge for the LatinxAthon. It also completed the Bisexual MC and F/F Relationship challenges for the LatinxBookBingo. I rated it 4 stars.
A People’s History of the Vampire Uprising by Raymond A. Villareal – This completed the Free Space on the LatinxBookBingo card. I rated it 4 stars.
That’s it for the wrap-up! Did you participate in any of the Latinx reading challenges during Hispanic Heritage month? Have you read any of the books featured in this post? Let me know down below in the comments.
As always keep on reading and stay book nerdy my friends!
