Hello my darling little readers. Coffee drinkers. Tea sippers. Sandwich eaters. Sunny day lovers. Music fanatics. How are you today? Are you getting that internship/job/perfect apartment? Hopefully you answered yes to all the questions that applied to you.

I'm currently at this coffee house and juice bar that me and my friend Cait wandered over to the other day. This cute as can be place is called Bebidas. Hence the name of this post. I've gotten iced tea both times I've came, the first was a peach black tea and the second was English Breakfast. The latter is a personal favorite of mine. You just can't go wrong with a nice, steeped for a hella long time English Breakfast.

wow look delicious tea yummy 

I've been chilling at my friends apartment for the last few days while I get life sorted out (the internship and the apartments that I mentioned previously!). Hopefully that'll all be good in the next couple days. But we shall see!!

Anyways, while I was enjoying this freaking gorgeous weather (it's not too humid?? and i'm in houston?? am i in the right city??) I thought to myself: "Jackie, you should write a post about this." So here I am. And here you are. Here we are!

Wow, such a crazy coincidence.

Anyways 'bebidas' means drinks in Spanish and so while you're here, get yourself some good drinks and good reads. I'm here to help you with the latter. Today, we are going to showcase Latinx authors in young adult fiction. Woop! Yay! Wow! So pull up a seat and prepare to click aaaaallllll the Goodreads links.

BECAUSE OF THE SUN by Jenny Torres Sanchez

"Dani Falls learned to tolerate her existence in suburban Florida with her brash and seemingly unloving mother by embracing the philosophy Why care? It will only hurt.

SWEET BLACK WAVES by Kristina Perez

When she unknowingly saves the life of her enemy, he awakens her ancient healing magic and opens her heart. Branwen begins to dream of peace, but the princess she serves is not so easily convinced. Fighting for what's right, even as her powers grow beyond her control, will set Branwen against both her best friend and the only man she's ever loved."

THE RESOLUTIONS by Maria Garcia 

"From hiking trips, to four-person birthday parties, to never-ending group texts, Jess, Lee, Ryan, and Nora have always been inseparable—and unstoppable. But now, with senior year on the horizon, they’ve been splintering off and growing apart. And so, as always, Jess makes a plan."
