Didn‘t love all of it, but haunting and emotional by a fellow Piscean Jhené Aiko. Recommend if you like poems on love, loss, and life

Forgive Me My Salt | Brenna Twohy
post image

Usually I'm so so on poetry books, but Brenna Twohy was consistent. I enjoyed most of her poetry.

My favorite is The Problems with First Dates, or How to Really Really Really Not Get Laid. Please go check it out 📚

"I believe ability can get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there. It takes character to keep working as hard or even harder once you're there.... why waste time proving over and over how great you are, when you could be getting better?"

Dirty and fun and my kind of book of poetry.
My favorite:

Chocolates

She was the kind of girl
Who loved to stretch out
Under the sheets,
Eating chocolates
Reading books
And fucking on
Rainy afternoons

I don't even like chocolates. 📚👍🏽 #dirtyprettythings #michaelfaudet #books #bookish #bibliophile #litsy #poetry #goodreads #bookworm #booknerd #bookgeek #booklover #bookshelf #shelfie

"We hold ourselves back in ways both big and small, by lacking self-confidence, by not raising our hands, and by pulling back when we should be leaning in... The shift to a more equal world will happen person by person. We move closer to the larger goal of true equality with each women who leans in."

Inspiring read. Although Sheryl Sandberg points out you can have both a job and raise a family, this was towards rich women than for all women.

Landline | Rainbow Rowell
post image
Mehso-so

"Nobody's lives just fit together... Fitting together is something you work at. It's something you make happen- because you love each other."

Had a lot of mixed feelings because I really enjoyed reading Georgie McCool juggling work/family life, but also irritated with the story going back and forth with the hallucination and facing reality. Middle of the book seemed to be a lot of rambling and no build up until the end. ? #landline #bookish

RealLifeReading Felt the same way! Was kinda disappointed by this one 3y

"Do you love me?" I ask.
In your hesitation I found my answer.

Very short and fun read. Poems of love and sorrow. Although some poems I enjoyed and understood, others I didn't get and thought colorless and uninteresting.

Loved it! Raw and emotional and glad Diane Guerrero was able to open up on her parents deportation and show how it leaves children behind in the U.S. Lost and orphaned. Makes my beliefs on immigration stronger as we're all one big melting pot. Diane Guerrero is sassy and brave.
