This post is part of the #ReadMoreLatam2021 Challenge. Click here for more info.
The challenge for this month is to read a book published in 2021.
To round out the inaugural #ReadMoreLatam2021 challenge, December’s book should be one published in 2021, either in its original language or in translation. There are plenty to choose from, whether you want to read queer memoirs, flights of fictional fantasy, or introspective essays. Many of them are books I’ve been recommending throughout the year, some of which I’ve read and some of which I still haven’t got around to reading.
I’ll be reading The Rooftop by Uruguayan author Fernanda Trías (trans. Annie McDermott). What about you?
(As usual, my recommendations for this month include books I’ve read or simply books I want to read and review. Most are works in translation but a few are in the original Spanish.)
