2014 Reading Challenge: January

We are one month into our Latin@s in Kid Lit Reading Challenge, and our participants have completed an awesome array of books! Below are the covers, which link to any reviews written. Some people have chosen to read and not review (which is fine). In these cases, when you click on the cover, you will go to the book’s general Goodreads page. Have fun browsing the books below. Maybe you’ll even add a few to your own TBR list!

A note to participants: As you complete books, please send us the information, so we can share what you’re reading each month.

The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns, #1)   Maximilian & the Mystery of the Guardian Angel: A Bilingual Lucha Libre Thriller  Death, Dickinson, and the Demented Life of Frenchie Garcia  The Knife and the Butterfly  The Wild Book  The Vicious Deep (The Vicious Deep #1)  Fat Angie   Marcelo in the Real World  The Girl Who Could Silence the Wind   Colibri   Yes!
