June Bugs- a poem

June bugs

flutter at my window,

their reminder

that the cold

may seize to exist.


June bugs,

may I ask

where you go in

the winter?

Do you hide?

I guess the winter’s

wrath may

be too much

to handle

with your





I sometimes

feel like you,

June bugs.

My dragonflies

can belittle

me too

until my



and my limbs numb.

That must happen

to you too.


Thank you,

June Bugs.

I’m not



Early in the Morning-a poem

He wakes me

early in the morning

to tell me

that he loves me,

but at night

his eyes go distant,

his coffee grown cold

and his food left untouched.


He whispers

songs in my ear

of utter despair,

but am I the one to blame?


Early in the morning,

he packs his backs

and cuts my heart out.

I should’ve known

by the sadness

in his eyes

and the loss of emotion

in his voice.


But it is not I to blame

because he caused himself

the great shame.



Art in Bloom-a poem

She has

roses in her eyes

and sunflowers

on her thighs.


Grass grows

green in her hair

and her smile

crashes into the

ocean waves.


She helps sprouts


with just one

prick of her



She sings with the birds

and at night

paints the stars

in the sky.


And when the

sun rises the

next morning,

she does it

all over again.



Loves Me Not, Loves Me by Brittany Julian-Review

Hi, everyone!

Today I have the opportunity to review Loves Me Not, Loves Me by Brittany Julian.

The poetry book is split into two sections: Heartbreak and love-just like the title. Each poem follows the lines of Brittany's love life but easily traces the story of the reader's love life.

The poetry was beautiful and honest. At points, very heartbreaking. All of the emotions just flooded out of the pages. It's truly beautiful.

I think this book can help anyone who's gone through a rough time in any relationship. It gives you a sense of knowing that everyone has experienced some sort of heartbreak.

This book is perfect for the fans of The Princess Saves Herself in This One by Amanda Lovelace.

Thank you Brittany Julian herself for contacting me about her book. And thank you to everyone for reading.

Love always,



Within the Heart of Silence by James William Peercy and Jacqueline E. Smith-Review

Hi, everyone! Happy Monday!

I teamed up with Booktasters once again to have the chance to review Within the Heart of Silence by James William Peercy and Jacqueline E. Smith.

Within the Heart of Silence is a collection of contemplative poetry and magnificent photographs. A majority of the poems are inspired by nature and finding oneself.

I quite enjoyed this collection. I love how the photos easily fit the poetry. As if the poems were written about the very images themselves. I'm not positive if that was intentional or just coincidental.

The one thing I didn't really enjoy was the author's constant rhythm. Each poem was written in the alternate rhyme scheme. I kind of wished for a little more variety in the rhyme scheme.

I definitely recommend this book to poetry lovers and nature lovers.

This book really leaves you thinking. Each poem inspires you to do a double take.

Thank you for reading everyone! And thank you to Booktasters and James William Peercy for giving me to opportunity to read this collection.

Love always,


Poetry and Updates

Droplets-a poem

Her songs are

droplets on his rose petals

those sparkling


pour nowadays.

Yet he cries

everyday not knowing

that those songs

she has written are

about him.


Those teardrops

on ashen cheeks.

A smile once

or twice

but not for long.


and water droplets

bring her to


and those cloudy

skies never

seem to escape

the palace

walls of her mind.


Don’t make me laugh.

Don’t make me cry

he seems to whisper

but two worlds

apart they stand.

Never knowing

one day it’ll

be another

world apart

by then.


His Frozen Fingertips by Charlotte Bowyer-Review

Hey, my fellow bookworms!

How is everyone’s summer going so far?

I was given the great opportunity from the team at Bookollective to read and review His Frozen Fingertips by Charlotte Bowyer. Along with a few other bloggers, this review is part of the His Frozen Fingertips Blog Tour. Be sure to check out the other amazing bloggers’ reviews.

Here are the dates for upcoming reviews!


Let’s get to the review!


His Frozen Fingertips follows Asa, a teen diagnosed with a life-threatening heart disease. His days are numbered and he believes that his adventures are over. His parents left him as a child and the only person who he can trust is his friend Averett. He is thrust into a journey across his homeland knowing that at any moment he could grow sicker.

My Thoughts

I quite enjoyed His Frozen Fingertips

This book is very suspenseful. I was on the edge of my seat while reading because I was afraid of the main character dying in the middle of the story. (I guess my favorite authors have made me a little paranoid when it comes to characters dying. *ahem J.K. Rowling*)

I also felt as if it should’ve been extended more. I wanted more background information on Erebus.

The exploration of the LGBTQA+ community in this novel is amazing. I definitely shipped Averett and Asa.

I definitely recommend this for fans of Blood Red Road by Moira Young. You will definitely enjoy this book if you’re a fan of Blood Red Road.

Thanks for reading everyone and have a great weekend!
