Saludos Y Bienvenidas!

My name is Mariana, I am the author of this blog, bienvenidos! I am a millennial Mexican immigrant living in New England and I love to read! You can find me most of the time with a book in one hand and a café con leche in the other. As a kid, I would stay up late with a flashlight under the covers in the company of Nancy Drew and the Babysitters Club which ignited my hopeless addiction to books.

Many years later I noticed that not a lot of heroines on the page looked like me and thus began my journey to discover new books and new authors and to celebrate the incredible and distinct voices of Latinx writers and readers. I am excited to share my passion for promoting diversity in the the publishing space with you on this blog. Thank you for joining me and happy reading!
