Although officially, Hispanic Heritage Month is winding down, the celebration of Latinx culture doesn’t have to come to an end. Especially when it comes to supporting and reading books written by Latinx romance authors. We use the term Latinx to be more inclusive and to reflect the diverse backgrounds and identities of our growing community of authors, readers and bloggers.
While our backgrounds and cultures may be different, our stories all share common threads of family, tradition, perseverance, hope and, of course, love.
What you might not know is that these books also share similar threads with some of the most popular shows on television today. I’ve curated a list to match addictive T.V. shows with a book series written by a LatinxRom author. If you’re a fan of the show, you should definitely try the books. Happy reading!
