First of all…
Disclaimer: I received an eARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! In no way does this affect my rating and review.
So, without further adieu, let’s dive on into my review.
This collection of poetry was beautifully written; the prose caught me by surprise and I found myself thoroughly enjoying the writing style. I however, wasn’t able to relate to many of the poems, and it gave me a hard time connecting with the compilations.
You can tell that this debut poetry collection is written from the heart, from experience and passion felt within the author. The wording of each poem, the emotion you can feel in the writing definitely lead me to believe Adiela has been through pain, and through loss. This was her coping mechanism, and it flows with beautiful pain.
I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for poetry. I’m a sucker for Poe, Shakespeare and so many others. I’ve read every Shel Silverstein, and I can quote the Raven from start to finish. There was something about this collection of poems that continued my fingers flipping from page to page to experience the depths of Adeila’s feelings expressed through her writing.
If you’re a poetry fan, support this debut poetess, and be sure to be a part of watching her grow. She has such talent, I am so thrilled at the opportunity to watch her hone in her craft and continue to produce beautiful works of literary art.
As always, may your coffee be strong, and your books transport you somewhere magical.
And remember, stay wild moon child, and creep it real, witches!
