Mexicanos perdidos en México (2016): February-May Links

Considering how I suddenly lost interest in reading for my own reading event about halfway through it (nothing against Mexican lit, but man, reading to a timetable really sucks sometimes), I'm both pleased and a little embarrassed to bring you this wrap-up list of hot link action for Mexicanos perdidos en México (2016) with so few of my own reviews on it.  That being said, thanks to all of you who read along with the gang during the fiesta--I'll try to be less of a blogging deadbeat next time (or maybe during Spanish Lit Month in July), but until then many other non-deadbeats' offerings can be sampled and savored below.  Good stuff!
