Latinxs + Caribbeans representation in 2017

by - 5:02 PM

Hello you all! Silvana here. 2017 has been great in terms on diversity to be honest. There has been some racist debut/books out there but there has been some amazing ones and ones that will be released soon! You might notice the culture being represented below the book title. You might also notice that some don't have it and that's because I have not read the book and don't know the rep inside it. For some I did manage to find in articles and sites, but other books are unknown to me but I do know they have the rep I am looking for, just not the specific culture. I hope you enjoy the list and add them all in your TBR!
