When you need to be studying but you’ve just started a really good book...
I’m so conflicted about this book! After reading Mia Alvar’s IN THE COUNTRY a few years ago I’ve been wanting to read more fiction about the Filipino diaspora so was thrilled to hear about AMERICA IS NOT THE HEART. The prologue pulled me in immediately and I ate it up. But I overinvested in Paz who then almost disappeared from the narrative once Hero, our true protagonist, arrived. Hero is an amazing character and the reveals about her life are handled masterfully but I experienced them at a remove. I spent 300 pages pining for Paz only to have a gorgeous queer romance sweep me up in its beauty. I’m so annoyed at myself for not recognising Paz as a gateway to Hero! #americaisnottheheart #elainecastillo
