My absolute favorite thing to do is read books. My ideal Sunday afternoon would be to just curl in my bed and read a good book, maybe with a face mask on and some coffee. My favorite kinds of books are either a love story, a poetry book, or a mystery. I love being able to lose myself in the books that I read and possibly sit there for hours. So recently I have purchased a couple different books from amazon in the last couple months (and by a little I mean about 15 LOL). Today I’m gonna be reviewing my top 5. I’m gonna tell you guys a little bit about the books and why it was such a great read for me. I am leaving all of the book links down below along with a picture of them if you guys are interested in purchasing.
#1 Adultolescence By Gabbie Hanna
$12.49 Book Link
This book is absolutely amazing! This is a poetry book in a very modern style. Gabbie describes the perfect mix of adult and child. Basically all of your thoughts that happen in your teen years which can make you feel alone, happy, hopeful, in love, etc. were condensed into one book. I personally relate so well to almost every poem in here, it’s crazy. (shhh BTW it’s currently on sale from $16.99, sopick it up!)
#2 This Princess Saves Herself By Amanda Lovelace
$11.99 Book Link
Of course I’m sure everyone has heard of this book by now, but when it first came out it didn’t really attract me until more recently. One of my friends actually put me on to this book and said I just HAD to read it. It changes the more typical “romance” poetry book, into the realization that maybe there isn’t a happy for everyone and that’s okay. It’s a very empowering book for women, which is what I personally like about it. (This ones on sale too! It was $14.99 and now its
#3 I Love My Love By Reyna Biddy $10.17 Book Link
I am so obsessed with this book. I first heard about Reyna on Twitter and I actually started following her before she even released this book. Let me take it back for a minute, about a year and a half ago I went through a really heavy breakup and Reyna actually released a soundtrack to this book. To this day, I swear that is what helped me get through this particular breakup. It is full of heart wrenching poems that make you cry, make you feel hopeful, and make you fall in love. It is definitely one of kind. The soundtrack is basically her reading a few of the poems in this book. After she released that, months later she released the whole book. I didn’t get the chance to pick it up until about a month ago, and trust me it is so worth it.
#4 Her Favorite Color Was Yellow By Edgar Holmes
$13.49 Book Link
This book is beautiful and very one of a kind. He talks about how it feels to fall in love, the aching hurt when his love leaves, and how it feels to get her back. It truly is a must read, again its a poetry book which seems to be my favorite lately. I 100% recommend this, I made 2 of my friends read it and they also fell in love.
#5 I Wrote This For You By Iain Thomas $19.67
This book is just so unique, I feel like it’s a must read for everyone. Everyone takes what they need from this book. Whatever is currently going on in your life, I feel it says exactly what you need to hear. It focuses on basically aspect of life from beginning to end. Every word is said beautifully and really gets you in your feelings. If you’re not big o that, I would definitely skip this one lol.
