Know You By Heart | Tif Marcelo

The premise is the classic romance trope, marriage of convenience. However, it takes places when the marriage of convenience is nearing its end, which is a cool twist to the trope. I found that twist very refreshing and it offered a unique perspective to the trope. I enjoyed seeing the main characters discover their true feelings for each other.

I had this on my TBR for quite a long time. Finally completed this classic.
This book is all about common people and their nature, friendships, families, love, religion extremism and the madness that comes along with it, virtues, life and death.

Inheritance | Elizabeth Acevedo

The poem was short yet so impactful. It beautifully highlighted the struggles of natural hair as well as the complexities of being Afro-Latinidad. It‘s personal, real, and authentic, which are all qualities I look for when reading poetry.

Sari, Not Sari | Sonya Singh

This was such a simple and sweet story!

I loved the premise of the story. I enjoyed learning more about Indian culture, especially their wedding customs. I also liked that the book explored being “white-washed” and how it can make people feel disconnected towards their culture.

This book is pure genius!

This book is all 4 Avengers movies written as Shakespearen plays. It includes stage directions, a list of characters, and even full color illustrations (loved seeing the Avengers dressed Shakespearean style). All the iconic lines and scenes are translated perfectly.

Far From The Shallow | Linda Musleh

The thing I love most about poetry is how personal it can be. This collection was the epitome of that. I could tell that every poem came from the heart.

I really liked the water theme that was woven throughout the poems. It made the collection very cohesive.
