I love to spread the word about under the radar books and poetry collections so when the author of this book offered me a PDF in exchange for a review I was super excited. Originally my review was only posted on my Goodreads page but I’m making a blog post for it because I really loved the book and hope for some of you fellow poetry lovers to check it out!
MY RATING: 5/5 stars
If you are a lover of poetry, add this collection to your TBR. It was one of the best collections I have ever read. “Pastel Dreams and Glittered Hearts” is a very personal and emotion-invoking book. It includes many beautiful poems as well as passages of prose and shorter quotes. Usually I am not too big on prose passages or quotes being included in poetry books but I felt with this book there was a nice balance between all aspects of the book and I really enjoyed reading both the poems AND all the others passages.
I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for a review and I would just like to thank the author for giving me that chance. (My review is 100% honest and unbiased, for anyone who is wondering.) The minute I began the book I really felt a kinship with the words in it. I think I enjoyed the first half of the book more but they were both beautiful and definitely deserve to be read. Samira Vivette has a way with words most popular poets never will. Don’t go and read “Milk and Honey” or “The Dark Between Stars,” pick up this underrated and marvelous book instead!
