I would tell people that you should step outside your comfort zone with books because it is good to add more authors and genres to your reading portfolio even if you do not read books like this.
I normally read books of this genre but l also stepped outside my comfort zone. I am so glad l did because l have read so many great books and come across some great authors.
I highly recommend this book.

Synopsis: This is a book about love and it is implications for life. It speaks of love in many styles and voices. Poems are depicted through dreams, wisdom, desire, gratitude, hope, faith, goals, loyalty, triumph, imagination, happiness, magic, achievement, imagery, wonder, remorse, denial, opposition, religion, sorrow, betrayal, illness, despair, youth, old age, and many other facets of life. It is designed to promote a certain inquiry toward love and how it is perceived. It is hoped that the reader will speak of love, if only vicariously. Several poems have been revised from their previously publication form.
Review: I found this book really easy to get in to and harder to put down once l started reading it. I love this book and l was hooked after reading the first poem. It did not take me long to finish this book. I was sad to finish this book. I would happily read it again. If l had not won this book l would have bought it because l love poetry. This book has some amazing poems in it. I really enjoyed reading this book I just wish it did not finish because it was that good. This book will leave you wanting to read more poems. I can not put in to words how great this book is l can not put in to words how amazing the poems are I would tell people to read it for themselves to know how great it really is. When I was reading this book I would put some essential oils and put the lights on my humidifier and chill on my bed and listen to magic or something on TV or netflix. I also put on my christmas lights on that are on my christmas tree. I sometimes light a candle when I was reading this book. I reviewed this book on amazon UK and US, goodreads and on my blog.
