25 Books Every Latina Should Read

In response to Esquire's list of 75 Books Every Person Should Read (which we found ludicrously tilted in favor of old, dead white dudes), we decided to compile a list of the best literature every Latina should check out. Although we focused on Latin American literature, there are also a few universal masterpieces that we were compelled to include.

We realize there is no way every single Latina is going to agree with this list, so let us know what you think we forgot, or if you think we're just plain old loca!

Without further ado, here is our definitive list of the 25 Books Every Latina Should Read!

About this author

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
