by Dania Ayah Alkhouli
My Thoughts: This book says what I didn’t know needed to be said. Dania Ayah Alkhouli captures everything it means to be a woman with striking and powerful punches. She speaks on family, love, and loss, each poem with passion. Her words embody fierce honesty with poise and grace. It’s genuineness wearing high heels. Reading this book is time well spent!

by Heather D. Pease
My Thoughts: This book felt like discovering a person, while at the same time feeling like I’ve always known her. Heather fills her pages with the full scope of life by being vulnerable with her trauma and pain, while also enjoying the love and beauty of the world. She explores her sensuality, and also shares her journey of finding her inner strength. She writes so purely from her heart that it restores my faith in humanity. From start to finish, each page is filled with greatness, and I couldn’t recommend it more!
A Quote I Loved From the Book: “Sit beside me, let’s hold hands, turn off the world around us, and yarn words into a blanket we call our favorite.” (from the Poem, Talk to Me)
