Corazon by Yesika Salgado Review

CorazónCorazón by Yesika Salgado
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Corazon means heart in Spanish. I feel like this is a fitting title for this book. Not just because a majority of its content is about romance, but because of the heart this book has. What I mean by that is that it feels like this book is a living thing. I finished reading this in the early morning hours. It is the afternoon and I can’t get this book off my mind. It’s become apart of me I feel like.

I feel the author’s pain. I share it. I grieve with her. I feel protective of her like she’s my best friend. I feel angry at the way she’s been treated. I once said to someone or perhaps to myself: why I am allowing him to treat me like this? If someone had treated you [my best friend] like that I would be livid. It reminds me of a clip I saw of Laverne Cox saying something similar to Mindy Kaling. We are so hard on ourselves but will fight for others especially our friends.

I feel like I am ready to fight again. Fight for myself. Fight for love. Fight for truth and justice. Fight for family. It’s a good feeling.
