Review for Imagination Is My Escape by H.E. Hoover #Books #Poetry #Review

727709AF-AE4B-4476-8E49-20760AFA14A2.jpeg
This debut book by H.E. Hoover is a stunning accomplishment. The raw passion of the author’s observations hit home as a millennial. I’m reminded almost of the singer Halsey with her ability to express what many of us have felt growing up this century. Society (The Saddest Poem I’ll Ever Write) captures a disassociation that surely comes with the lack of empathy online culture has generated. In this way, it is an incredibly important and crucial read. I highly recommend buying this book.

Review for Milkshakes & Chilidogs by @bartbarkerpoet #Books #Poetry #Review

0C26DB38-7316-4C91-A998-CF9C283F58C3.jpeg
Overall, a different book from others I have read. It is a short, light read that does not overwhelm you with substance. The focus is largely food and the emotions behind it. Some of the descriptions were strange but that might be my familiarity with cooking in the Midwest. My biggest criticism is it did not go as deep as I would like. *I received this book for free and voluntarily reviewed*

Review for Lift Off! by Vivian Zems #Books #Poetry #Review

Lift Off.PNG
Lift Off! is a short collection of inspirational poetry. It might seem simplistic at first glance, but the imagery and wordplay are more complex. This is a great poetry book for any age group, especially if you are looking to start reading the genre again. I recommend this for beginners or for a quick easy read.

Review for Pillow Thoughts by Courtney Peppernell #Books #Poetry #Review

82126803-A520-459D-ABC6-13A3F044507B.jpeg
Pillow Thoughts by Courtney Peppernell – Incredible, thought provoking book. Peppernell’s words encapsulate what it means to feel love and receive it in return. I appreciate her shorter verses, as as they are rich in detail. Overall an inspirational book full of positive advice that could use a darker edge. I will be reading the next books in her series.

Find this book on Amazon.

Journey

~

Leanne heard them lecture

her on what it meant to be a

strong woman. But she felt

strong handcuffed to the bed….

~

Waiting for jail,

or more interrogations…

~

she saw flashes

of the Firebird she crashed

into the lake

~

because he said he loved it

more than her.

~

Now, it seemed so

juvenile…

~

he was never worth

a moment (or fake

orgasm)

~

she pleased herself

before the lights came on

and it was almost enough

to forget –

her child.

~

he could go to hell for

all she cared

but Journey was

a loss

clawing at her throat

each morning-

~

if Gene had never

drank that night,

or she confronted him…

~

a bottle would not be

smashed against her head and

Journey would be

in Kindergarten

~

it wasn’t her fault.

they all told her he was trash.

and she had left him

years too late.

~

now, he came to see her

with his lawyer

and she agreed to

let him have the ring –

a parting gift

~

laced with every poison

she could find.
