My Favorite… Book Blogger Experience

My favorite is a weekly meme hosted by Maureen’s Books. Each week there is a topic and we do a post about it. That’s pretty simple, right? This week the topic is Book Blogger Experience. I think one of my favorite book blogger experiences is seeing my name in the acknowledgements. I’ve had this happen a few times and it is always so surreal, I still sometimes go back and check to make sure my name is still there. One of the first times I saw my name in a […]

ARC Review | La Frontera by Alfredo Alva

La Frontera is a bilingual children’s book. The story follows Alfredo during the 1980s where he and his father cross illegally into the US. The story is told through Alfredo’s eyes that bring an innocence and naivetés to the story that I personally really appreciated. I appreciated how the story began with why Alfredo and his dad decided to immigrate to the US and it explained the process. The process was anything but easy, they gave money to coyotes and they traveled a rough road along the Rio Grande. It […]
