There isn’t currently a bestseller list for Latinx (Latino/Latina) authors who reside in the United States, so I decided to create one. I feel this will be encouraging for new and up-and-coming Latinx writers to be able to see their books and names on a prestigious list

I came up with this first list by seeing which book by a Latinx author was on the New York Times Bestsellers List. Making that list is the most prestigious of all, and seeing a Latinx author’s name there automatically gets them on my list. That is why I ranked Silvia Moreno-Garcia in the number one position. Then I searched the Hispanic Best Sellers on Amazon, and finally, I looked at the USA Today Best-Selling Books list.

I am open to suggestions and recommendations and welcome anyone who wants to help me to maintain this list going.
