This post is part of the #ReadMoreLatam2021 Challenge. Click here for more info.
The challenge for this month is to read a book from a country you’ve visited (or want to visit).
It’s a common refrain that books have the power to transport you to new and interesting locales and while I believe that can be the case, it’s not always true. Even so, this month, the challenge is to read a book from a Latin American country that you’ve already visited. One you want to revisit by way of literature, shall we say.
Alternatively, given that travel isn’t accessible to all, you can pick a book from a country that’s on your post-pandemic (although still not convinced that’s a thing) travel wish list.
Personally, I’ve gone for both a country I have visited and would love to revisit—Colombia—although I’m pretty sure the plot of Holiday Heart actually takes place in the US. (Oops.)
Anyway, in the spirit of travel-as-theme, all the books I’m suggesting for November’s challenge have a strong sense of place. As usual, my normal caveat—these are all either books I’ve read or simply books I want to read and review.
