Summer literary list

posted in: Uncategorized

The summer solstice has passed, and I’m now seeing back-to-school advertisements. Seriously, a few days ago I was in Hobby Lobby, and I was shocked to see the fall items being stocked, but absolutely blown away to see some Christmas items!!! What this means for me is I need to get going on my summer literary list. Literary list, I call it, because I’m going to include books as well as film. Look for my upcoming reviews on all of these!

  1. Come Together, Fall Apart by Cristina Henríquez – This has been laying around on my shelf for a while. I picked it up, read the first few pages and was Blown. Away. Seriously.
  2. The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henríquez -  Just after picking up book number 1, I saw that Henríquez had published a new book on June 3, 2014. Since I have the attention span of a six-year-old in a candy shop with a gaggle of girls simultanesouly chasing butterflies, I bought it immediately and started reading, setting the other one down. Since Unknown is a novel and Come Together is a collection, I decided to finish the former first.
  3. Seven for the Revolution by Rudy Ruiz – A book that tells the story of seven Latino immigrants. I think I have a theme going on this summer.
  4. Latino Americans series by PBS -I’ve really wanted to set aside time to really watch this six-hour documentary. The website features writers like José Martí and Julia Alvarez.
  5. Cesar Chavez written by Keir Pearson and Timothy J. Sexton and starring Michael Peña, America Ferrera, and Rosario Dawson. This comes out on DVD on July 22.
