I want to thank Anna-Marie McLemore, for her beautiful words, activism, kindness, & for the representation in her novels. I’m so grateful for her stories, for they’re the first I truly saw myself represented in, as a Latina. Reading two of her novels, last year, and seeing my own Latinx culture represented–I have no words to describe how much I wish for this for every reader. For them to see all of their identities, on the page (and all media).
In Anna-Marie McLemore’s magical realism novels there is intersectional feminism and discussions of racism, the life of immigrants, and they also feature protagonists who are Latinx and Pakistani. There is also bisexual, queer, transgender, and genderqueer rep. I love her novels so much. 💗
Thank you so much, @FierceReads, for this lovely ARC of “Blanca & Roja”. Muchos abrazos. 🌷🌸

Happy March, friends! 🌷
Today, I’m featuring one of my recent reads (also a @thebookboundsociety March BOTM), that I absolutely adored:
“American Panda” by Gloria Chao / @gloriacchao 🌸
Synopsis:
At seventeen, Mei should be in high school, but skipping fourth grade was part of her parents’ master plan. Now a freshman at MIT, she is on track to fulfill the rest of this predetermined future: become a doctor, marry a preapproved Taiwanese Ivy Leaguer, produce a litter of babies.
With everything her parents have sacrificed to make her cushy life a reality, Mei can’t bring herself to tell them the truth—that she (1) hates germs, (2) falls asleep in biology lectures, and (3) has a crush on her classmate Darren Takahashi, who is decidedly not Taiwanese.
But when Mei reconnects with her brother, Xing, who is estranged from the family for dating the wrong woman, Mei starts to wonder if all the secrets are truly worth it. Can she find a way to be herself, whoever that is, before her web of lies unravels?
From debut author Gloria Chao comes a hilarious, heartfelt tale of how unlike the panda, life isn’t always so black and white.
—————————————————————
I’m so excited that it’s one of The Book Bound Society’s BOTMS, for March! We’re looking forward to reading and discussing “American Panda”, along with everyone who’s joining! 💗

Back in May, @thebookboundsociety featured “When the Moon Was Ours”, a story about a queer Latina and a Pakistani trans boy. It’s an #OwnVoices novel for queer and Latinx rep, and I absolutely fell in love with Anna-Marie McLemore’s writing. 💛
In “Wild Beauty”, which @thebookboundsociety will be reading during November, there is a bisexual protagonist, and it has genderqueer rep. It’s also #OwnVoices for Latina protagonist, Latinx family, and queer themes.
I hope you enjoy these wonderful magical realism novels, as well as Anna-Marie McLemore’s previous and upcoming works. I’m so excited to read more of her lovely words. 💕

Hello, friends! 🌻
Today, I wanted to share one of my most-anticipated reads of 2017! It’s “Wild Beauty” by Anna-Marie McLemore. It’s #OwnVoices, since the protagonist is Latina and there are queer themes. It also has Latinx, bisexual, and genderqueer rep. 💛
I read Anna-Marie McLemore’s “When the Moon Was Ours”, recently, and I fell in love with it! It made me so happy to read a book where I could see so much of my culture, within the pages.
Just like “Wild Beauty”, there is magical realism. It features a queer protagonist, Latinx culture, and Pakistani and transgender representation.
It’s a book I highly recommend! ⭐️
