"Word Up is not just a bookstore it's a community. I love their dedication to supporting authors of color, in particular Afro-Caribbean authors with roots in Washington Heights. Growing up in Santo Domingo I always wished for a bookstore dedicated to promoting not only reading book, but making space to reflect on them and to celebrate them. I am grateful for Word Up and all they do."
You Had Me At Hola
by Alexis Daria
In one romance Alexis Daria managed to give us a look at the pressures of fame, the challenges of being Latinx in the entertainment industry, the trauma of Hurricane Maria...and a swoon worthy love story. This one is one of my favorite reads of 2020.
The Worst Best Man
by Mia Sosa
If you want an absolutely pitch perfect rom-com, look no further. Mia Sosa gives us laughs for days as well as a nuanced, profound story, brimming with Afro-Brazilian culture...and be prepared, because this one is STEAMY.
by Priscilla Oliveras
Priscilla writes Latinx families with a skill that makes you feel like you are part of them. Her romances are sweet, and complex. They've also been known to jerk a tear or two.
by Zoey Castille
Magic Mike XXL but make it Latinx? Yes, please! But don't be fooled, in addition to a scorching romance, Zoey does a masterful exploration of sex work and turns Latinx stereotypes on their heads. I love this series with my whole heart.
