In an effort to convince you of how perfect this book is, here’s a quote from the book’s acknowledgements section: “I would also like to acknowledge all the immigrants who have risked their lives to come to this country, and their children. You are what makes America great.” The rest of my thoughts are on my blog, link in bio. •

I’m reading “I am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter” by Erika L. Sánchez and the scene with Julia’s quinceañera made me think of mine. So here my #tbt 😂

Erika L. Sánchez’s I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter and two carne asadas tacos, one al pastor taco, and a horchata. Even though it was a sad little meal that Julia had to scrape together because her parents was still mourning the death of her sister and neglecting her, I couldn’t help but want the same thing. I have to admit that the twist of her sister’s death was a little too much for me. I would have enjoyed reading only of Julia’s coming of age minus the melodrama of her sister’s death. What I loved most about this book was that it was a coming-of-age told through the lens of a Mexican girls. It was nice being able to see things that are familiar to me culturally like getting cleansed by an egg (I have always wanted someone’s abuelita to do this for me). Also, Julia was someone that I could see myself being friends with a rocker and an avid book lover!!! I was super jelly of her meet cute with Connor! I wanted to have a meet someone like that at a bookstore. All in all, a great read that I highly recommend! #iamnotyourperfectmexicandaughter #erikalsanchez #booksandsnacks #bookworm #booklover #readdiversebooks #bookstagram #instabookclub #igreads #books #read #tacos #horchata

just finished this a few days ago. i highly recommend it, as an immigrant & daughter of an immigrant this book felt like an open letter to all of us who struggled w/ fear of letting our parents down or guilt of fulfilling our own dreams that don't seem fit to our parents.

i must give a TW since the book touches subjects of sexual assault, rape, machismo, depression and suicide. i know i had to take a quick moment to myself for everything to sink in.

thank you so much, sanura. cannot wait to check out the bookchat. 🤓💕📖
