Hispanic Heritage Month: A Celebration 2020

Starting on September 15, 2020 and concluding on October 15, 2020, Mr. Alex’s Bookshelf will be holding a month long celebration featuring titles by Hispanic Authors. We’ve culled through hundreds of books; read dozens of titles, and have settled on 21 that we know merit your attention.

Each weekday we will debut a brand new review. Below, is our list of Books that Merit Distinction. Out of the hundreds of books we sampled, the list below represents the BEST of the BEST. The date next to each book is the date the review goes live on Mr. Alex’s Bookshelf. Links will be active on the date the review goes live. To know immediately, sign up for Email notifications.
