Hello Readers !
So I was inspired from one of my favorite authors, Gretchen Gomez who also did a post of book haul (check it out), to write something on the books that I’ve gotten my hands on in this past two months.
I wasn’t always the biggest reader growing up until poetry came into my life and i began writing myself. This past year has been nothing short of productive and reading these amazing books pictured have helped me so much in my journey of self-love and finding myself. Each and every one of these books, helped me see different styles of writing and just the vulnerability that each writer conveyed that touched me. I will break down the title and a synopsis of what each book entails from their Bio on Amazon. It will also feature right in the middle my debut collection of poetry “Table for One.” All of these books you can find on Amazon.com and kindly leave a review for each author and how you enjoyed it ! I am so honored and excited to share this and all be apart of this community. At the end you may comment or ask any questions! Enjoy !!!!
Also follow me on GoodReads where i have pending collections of books that I am interested in reading and purchasing ! Link listed here :
MY BEAUTIFUL COLLECTION!
Her (Author Pierre Jeanty) -“Her” is a collection of poetry and prose about women, their strengths and beauty. Every woman should know the feelings of being loved and radiating those feelings back to her mate. This is a beautiful expression of heartfelt emotion using short, gratifying sentiments. If there is a lover in you, you will not get enough of “Her.”
The Princess saves herself in this One (Author Amanda Lovelace) -From Amanda Lovelace, a poetry collection in four parts: the princess, the damsel, the queen, and you. The first three sections piece together the life of the author while the final section serves as a note to the reader. This moving book explores love, loss, grief, healing, empowerment, and inspiration.
The Nectar of Pain (Author Najwa Nebaian) -The Nectar of Pain is a collection of poetry and prose that the pain of love and loss gave birth to. This collection of poetry that I share from my soul with you follows what most of us go through after experiencing a painful heartbreak. Overall, there may be stages of healing, but cleansing yourself of the pain day by day, hour by hour and second by second is the real struggle. Healing is not as predictable as we would like it to be. We may take ten steps forward one day, and take twenty back the next day. As we walk this journey together, some poems will address you. Some will address the one who caused the pain. And some will address myself. Yourself.
Born to Love, Cursed to Feel (Author Samantha King) –Born to Love, Cursed to Feel is about love—the good, the bad, and the confusing. It touches on morals and how when emotions are involved it’s not as black and white. The poetry is frequently written in a narrative manner that evocatively pulls you in and makes you feel. This book is about falling in love, bad decisions, and ultimately growth. The essence of it all is to show that no matter how far one falls all the mistakes don’t have to be what defines them.
Whiskey, Words and Shovel Volumes 1-3 (Author R.h Sin) -Originally released in 2015, this re-rerelease packs the same punch as the first version, but makes an even greater connection with the soul of the reader. Each piece has been re-seen and revamped to reflect the author’s continuing journey with his partner, Samantha King, without whom this book would not exist. Samantha is the muse, the “she” the writer speaks of; she is every woman who has felt like she wasn’t good enough, and every woman who struggles to find love.
Rest in the Mourning (Author R.h Sin) -The calm before and after the storm. Rest in the Mourning is a steady and profound stream of conscious thoughts and emotion. Documenting unhealthy relationships and why the heart ends up in the hands of those deemed unworthy. It speaks to the heart’s ability to hold on to relationships that no longer deserve our energy as well as what happens when we are ready to let go. Rest in the Mourning is about self-care and self-love.
Pillow Thoughts (Author Courtney Peppernell) -Pillow Thoughts is a collection of poetry and prose about heartbreak, love and raw emotions.
It is divided into sections to read when you feel you need them most.
Make a cup of tea and let yourself feel.
Love & Misadventure (Author Lang Leav) -The journey from love to heartbreak to finding love again is personal yet universal. Lang Leav’s evocative poetry speaks to the soul of anyone who is on this journey. Leav has an unnerving ability to see inside the hearts and minds of her readers. Her talent for translating complex emotions with astonishing simplicity has won her a cult following of devoted fans from all over the world.
Table for One (Laura Ashley Laraque) -This collection of poetry talks about a woman who has experienced what many have, heart break. In the midst of her pain, she takes on a journey to learn to love herself. Also, expressing emotions and looking back on memories that although left scars, have led her to sit at her table alone. Finding yourself is crucial and she explains how she accomplishes this day by day.
Blossoming Heart (Author Fida Islaih) -Blossoming Heart is a compilation of poems about conquering your fear and forgiving yourself. Learn about yourself and love yourself in your journey. Find stillness in your life. Let your brokenness find hope and peace.
I Love my Love (Author Reyna Biddy) -The debut collection from 22-year-old poet Reyna Biddy, I Love My Love tells the story of Reyna’s childhood, her parents’ toxic relationship, and how, against all odds, she learned to love herself.
Walking through the Forest (Author Elizabeth Ann) – love, loss, pain, healing, poetry.

Bare Roots (Molly S Hillery) –bare roots is a collection of poetry written for anyone that has ever buried parts of themselves away from the world. The book is divided into six parts– Pruning the Damage, Battling the Weeds, The Roses [and the Thorns], The Seedling Shall Blossom, Cultivating Wisdom, and Buds of Hope are delicately crafted segments that touch on the subjects of femininity, love and loss, trauma, mental illness, the search for meaning, and ultimately, how to grow from it all.
Some portions of this book contain mature content and may be triggering.
Milk and Honey (Author Rupi Kaur) -The book is divided into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose. Deals with a different pain. Heals a different heartache. Milk and Honey takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.
I am More than a Daydream (Author Jennae Cecelia) -How often do you daydream? For most, it is many times a day. We stare out the window instead of the task in front of us. We fantasize about where we would much rather be, the significant other we long for, our ideal job, the body we hope to see in the mirror, a healthier mindset, pure happiness in our lives and the lives of others, peace in this chaotic world. However, how many of us daydreamers believe these pleasant thoughts will truly turn into our reality? Daydreams are more than just short bursts of happiness that only our minds can see. I know I am more than a daydream; and you are, too.
The Chaos of Longing (Author K.y Robinson) –The Chaos of Longing is a prose and poetry collection draped in raw honesty, ache, and eroticism. The book explores trauma, mental illness, love, heartbreak, and the realizations from it all.
Mad Woman (Author Kat Savage) -Author of Learning to Speak, Kat Savage, returns with Mad Woman which is comprised of 40 pieces that capture her stream on conscious, her confessions, and her strange thoughts.
