Poetry time!    

As of lately, I have really gotten into poetry and I have found inspiration from within these amazing authors words.

salt by navyirah waxed

-so…powerful, so encouraging to women to love themselves, especially black women, i ate up her words with a frenzy…found peace within her words, i wish i could have had this book years ago. the new generation is so lucky to have such books like this to learn how to love themselves

 

chaos of longing by K.Y Robinson

-so…brutally honest about lust and searching for love not only within yourself but outside of your body, a journey of accepting your flaws, your mistakes, and embracing them. i appreciated it as a woman who searched for love in the wrong places and gave love to people who were not ready to be wholly loved ❤

dirty pretty things by Micheal Faudet

-a recent purchase, i have yet to read it but from what i have heard, it is a great read.

Bestseller

Into the Water by Paula Hawkins

-Currently picking up and down. I have heard mixed reviews about the book. The author has a…visceral writing style and i can imagine it is hard for people to read as she goes in depth into people’s true natures.

 

Bargain Finds

Don’t you hate/love when you find such awesome books for sale?

-Like c’mon, I found Romeo and Juliet for 0.50 cents! Ahhhhh Shakespeare would be doing backflips in his grave. Respect the classics!

-W.B Yeats is my ultimate favorite poet…well before he became a modernist and crazy and bitter and you know… just an awful person lol So I was truly ecstatic when I found a collection of his early work. ❤

-I am obsessed with ancient Greek anything! The Illiad is not a pleasant read though so reading the plays are bearable for me. I still cringe whenever I read Oedipus but nothing can the greek tragedies, in my opinion.
