So I‘ll stand here for you
In the wind and the rain
And I‘ll be the lighthouse you need.
Take my hand and breathe again
And I will guide you home.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sometimes I am a rainstorm
Sometimes I am a drought
There is no in between
And I‘m begging you to notice
I‘m begging you to care
Because if I have to keep on hiding
Then life becomes unfair

1) Characters are the most important thing, but the description is starting to matter more to me.
2) Magnets.
3) The only cookbook I own is The Good-to-go cookbook by Kathleen Hanna & I love it.
4) It might be Courtney Peppernell, honestly. Both her books that I‘ve read have made me cry.
5) Tagging some new followers! @SarahHarts_books @emilyrose_x @vivastory @kalytle1012

Disclaimer: I think I would‘ve enjoyed this if I were at a much different point in my life. Poetry is also not typically a genre I enjoy.

Out of all the poems, there were only 4 that really resounded with me. I would say this was overall just meh. 🤷🏻‍♀️

However, I would totally recommend this for people in a rough spot, as there are quite a few sections in here relating to that.

3 ⭐️

Poetry isn‘t my typical go-to genre, but this title and cover caught my attention 🖤

Side note: Pillow Thoughts on a moose Pillow Pet was too good of a photo op to pass up. 🧸

This didn‘t thrill me. It was ok but a lot of the poems came across juvenile. She would randomly throw in a “big” word that didn‘t make sense at all in the poem. The majority of the poems were just “meh”. There were some decent advice type poems and that is about the only thing that makes this a so-so instead of a pan.

mcctrish The cover had me all 😱 sad the poems are meh 10mo
OrangeMooseReads @mcctrish the jellyfish drawings are fantastic. I just didn‘t see where the poems were all that great others rave about them though 🤷🏼‍♀️ 10mo

Started this last night. Not too bad so far. Also not my favorite. I don‘t find myself thinking “oh that‘s a good one” or “I love how she phrased that”

A charming collection of poems - some so deeply personal that I read and reread them multiple times. I also really enjoyed the jellyfish illustrations that marked each section... A surprising and adorable little gem.

It makes me sad, truly, that you were made to feel as though you were annoying or stupid or that you aren't beautiful when you talk about the things you love or that you aren't interesting at 7 p.m. or 5 a.m. Your existence is important. You are important.

quote
ChristySevern
Pillow Thoughts | Courtney Peppernell

The earth has a heart and you exist somewhere inside, so if you need a reason to stay, take a moment, a deep breath; don't go breaking the earth's heart now.

quote
ChristySevern
Pillow Thoughts | Courtney Peppernell

I do not see weakness in placing your heart on your sleeve; I see bravery in a world that can be cruel. I see something raw and beautiful in being as honest as you can be.

quote
ChristySevern
Pillow Thoughts | Courtney Peppernell

"You're still here, you know;
under all the messy things,
under the stress, the anxiety, the sadness,
you're still you.
Come up for some air;
there are bright skies up here.
You have to pull yourself up;
I know you feel like you can't,
but you can.
I believe in you,
more than you know."

quote
ChristySevern
Pillow Thoughts | Courtney Peppernell

"Anxiety is a devastating thing. No matter how many times you are told to 'breathe,' it feels as though the air has all but thinned, and despite every logical reason to remain calm, you feel like a ship without its sails in the middle of a raging storm."

quote
ChristySevern
Pillow Thoughts | Courtney Peppernell

"There are little pieces of happiness and they are scattered throughout your day. So take a basket with you as you step outside, full it up with all the little pieces, and bring it back inside. Take a moment, just by yourself, take out all of the pieces, and place them on your shelf. "

quote
ChristySevern
Pillow Thoughts | Courtney Peppernell

"When the stars ask you what it is you want,
why do you speak of a love that tears you apart?
Why do you crave a love that will break your heart?
Your soul is never being repair, so stay
humble and be kind
and eventually a love will come along
and remind you of why you are alive. "

quote
ChristySevern
Pillow Thoughts | Courtney Peppernell

"You spend your whole life convincing yourself you are a chapter worth following, and then someone comes along and doesn't want to read the ending, and suddenly the whole story falls apart."

quote
ChristySevern
Pillow Thoughts | Courtney Peppernell

"I hope you find someone who never makes you question your own self-worth. I hope you find someone who chases your happiness as well as their own. I hope you find someone who supports you in the things you are passionate about. I hope you find someone whom you can laugh with and sit in silence with and share your deepest secrets with. I hope you find someone who is your lover, your partner, and your friend." (continued in comments...)

ChristySevern (Continued) "...I hope you find someone who treats you as their equal, who learns and grown with you and beside you. I hope you find someone who appreciates all the tiny details that make up who you are. I hope you find someone who respects your heart, your family, and your values. I hope you find someone who reminds you that you deserve the love you give." 11mo

"It's the last day of the year
and I still lose myself
in good books
and warm tea,
those quiet nights
and writing your name
on my windshield. "

Pillow Thoughts | Courtney Peppernell

"Of all the maps in the world, the only one I will follow is the map to your heart."

quote
ChristySevern
Pillow Thoughts | Courtney Peppernell

"They say don't fall in love with writers
because their poems
are messy
and their letters
are empty words
dressed up to look pretty.
But I say
fall in love with me
because underneath the mess
and in between the lines
is a heart too full of love
that would follow you to any city."

quote
ChristySevern
Pillow Thoughts | Courtney Peppernell

"Love is not always roses, honey, and tea. Sometimes it is difficult being you, and sometimes it is difficult being me. And in the night if we are restless and our love struggles to make sense, know that I will fight for us. Because I love you, and I know that you love me."

Hi guys!! This isn't related to books, really.. but a bit of info about me:

I am a caregiver to my mom, who (likely) has dementia. (I say likely because there is a bit of hesitancy to call it around her past medical history...)

Anywho... I have been reading a lot but not updating here as much as I would like to.

(currently reading: Pillow Thoughts - Courtney Peppernell & The Woman in Cabin 10 - Ruth Ware)

Spending sometime with this poetry collection today. I feel sort of down and a bit sick at the same time, so I figured I would pick something quick while I spend time with my family today.

This is one of the best poetry books I've ever read, and I am a voracious reader of poetry. It's also one of the few books of modern poetry that I like! The messages are simple and beautiful and emotional. It's a really good read, even if you're not a poetry person.

The messages within these poems truly conveyed love and I could feel the emotion written within them. However, I read this on my phone through overdrive and I think that truly prevented me from getting the bet experience out of this collection.

Picked this book of poetry up on a whim, and I‘m glad I did. It‘s broken up into sections, and each one gave me all the feels. I really enjoyed the book, and it‘s one I‘ll return to over & over again.
