Yesterday was #WorldPoetryDay and as much as I would love that this post be a poem I’m inclined to write a not so poetic post. But I won’t let that go without a one liner(paragraph) to open up today’s post, so buckle up and let’s get poetic right this moment.
See, yesterday was gone and all I could think about is how hard.
How hard a writer thinks and rethinks to give a reader something.
Something they sometimes miss due to sheer negligence or is it spite?
Spite for the capabilities of what the writer can produce or has used.
Used to create a living story that will last long of course, in the end.
In the end, for sure we will never know what goes in both their minds.
In that manner I open today’s post. There’s this book that I have completely failed to let go of. I have it in my bag and it screams to me on the daily, “Read me Dee! Read me!” Of course I am exaggerating on that but what if books could talk? Therefore, I’ll spare you the gory details of what my brain/mind can conjure up sometimes.
So yeah, I had a hard time putting this book down. The fact that I am yet to even name the book as you read this is just enough to prove how fascinated I am about it. Hint: selfish move.
Well, not to keep you wondering the book I have had a hard time putting down is no other than Melissa Bank’s the girls’ guide to hunting and fishing. I know if you haven’t read it you might probably think that’s a title that’s catchy and suspicious. Well, that’s the same thing that happened to me immediately when I spotted it.
I’ll have you know, I have a pile of books waiting to be read but the moment I saw the book I wanted nothing to do with those other books. Mainly because the title intrigued me, I am no hunter or fisher-person for that matter so taking the title literally was out of the picture.
That said, I got to read the book every second I had free time. One thing that lingers and reigns supreme on my mind is the fact that every time you flip to another chapter, a beautiful nugget that’s akin to a stanza of a poem opens the way to the following chapter—I must say, that really sold it for me.
Don’t be fooled by this article’s title, I am yet to finish the book. It was so good I had to review it before I finished it. Or maybe it’s because it’s Thursday and it flew by so fast before I could finish on this day where I have faithfully blogged lately. Either way, it’s all good because, I won’t spoil it for those of you who are yet to read it or have read it and don’t want a premature reveiw.
Having said that, here are some pictures of me «enjoying» the book. Take a look:
Thank you for reading and as always, ✨Peace. Love. Light.✨
