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.

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.

I found this one via a #bookstagram recommendation. I read the blurb but still had no idea what to expect. As an audiobook it was beautiful. It took a moment to find the rhythm of the book and it was hard to parse out poem from memory sometimes, but I enjoyed this read. The poems were beautiful. I never thought about how the voices and lives of women from the past can often only be found within the words of men.

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.
