Herstory Memoir Monday Recommendations

Memoirs for Hispanic Heritage Month

Sadly, I have not read a single memoir by a Hispanic author this year. I have been trying to hit all the heritage months for once and it’s been fun. As mentioned last year, I have only read two Hispanic memoirs, Something Fierce and My Invented Country. This year, I looked around and found some good lists of recommendations for Latina memoirs and added some to my TBR. We’ll see how it goes. I have a way of adding books, starting them, and then realizing they weren’t exactly for me. Here are the 5 contenders:

The Distance Between Us by Reyna Grande

The Distance Between Us: A Memoir - Reyna Grande

Bird of Paradise by Raquel Cepeda

Bird of Paradise: How I Became Latina

Rita Moreno: A Memoir

Rita Moreno: Memorias (Spanish Edition) - Rita Moreno

My Beloved World by Sonia Sotomayor

My Beloved World - Sonia Sotomayor

My Voice: A Memoir by Angie Martinez

My Voice: A Memoir - Angie Martinez,J. Cole

Hopefully, I’ll end up reading all of them! Has anyone read one of these? What did you think?
