Current Feels: For those who feel too much - Portia Mabaso

I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.

 

I really loved this poetry collection!

 

The poems are written in an Instagram poet style very similar to Rupi Kaur and Amanda Lovelace, which some people really love and some people really hate. If you’re not a fan of that style, then maybe this book isn’t for you. Personally, I really enjoy that style, so I had no issue with it.

 

To me this collection felt like a mixture of Rupi Kaur and Amanda Lovelace, with a splash of Lang Leav and Michael Faudet. But Portia’s own voice and unique point of view rang loudly throughout all the poems. They didn’t feel like a copycat of anyone else’s poems; they felt uniquely hers. 

 

My favorite poems were in the Summer and Spring sections of the book. I really liked the romantic poems in Summer because I am a sucker for those. I love reading poems about falling in love. The poems about her African background and heritage in the Spring portion were standouts that really shined. It’s so important that experiences and voices like hers are heard. 

 

Overall, I was very impressed with this collection and I look forward to seeing what else Portia publishes in the future!

Lost Soul: A.J.'s Burden
Lost Soul: A.J.'s Burden - Nicky James

Another amazing book by Nicky James.  While heavy in drug use this was just so beautiful and eye opening into the world of addition and recovery.  I was pleased actually that the we didn't have to relive the sex trafficing aspects of AJ's life that we knew existed from Book 3. 

 

But this was equally as difficult. Trystain was just a beautiful soul and their journey through recovery together, while difficult, was equally uplifting.

 

The book trailer images are simply perfect.

The Escape: Soren's Saga - Nicky James

My favorite in this series thus far.  Gaaahhhh...the feels.  I absolutely love Remy and all his quirks.  The interactions and relationship development with our dear Soren is just perfection.  Cannot wait to read this one again and again.  <3

No Regrets
No Regrets - Nicky James

“I’m not going to watch you die. I’m going to help you live. You’ve made a list and I plan to use every day you are capable to help you fulfill all those things on it. We will tick off as many as we can. I want to love you, and hold your hand, and kiss you, and make love to you. When we can’t do those things anymore, then I just want to hold you in my arms until you have to say goodbye. Every minute you have left on this Earth, I will love you. Let me love you.”

 

Absolutely beautiful book about love and having no regrets.  Every moment is precious and worth it.
