  • Release Date: February 18th 2015

  • Blurb:

Winner of the 2016 Royal Dragonfly Book Award, Moon Full of Moons is a collection of poetry about resilience, renewal, and creating a deep happiness in the midst of sadness and ongoing loss.
The book is divided into nine chapters, each named after a phase of the moon. Moon Full of Moons is a journey of survival, empowerment, and a determination to discover a light that has known darkness. This moving collection of over 100 poems explores innocence, love, mental illness, family, grief, forgiveness, healing, acceptance, and joy. Raw and honest with lush, evocative imagery, Moon Full of Moons is “self help in a whole new way”.
Everything is made from the remnants of what was. So – yes – you can build from it again.
“Kat Lehmann writes in an honest, magical way, opening up fresh possibilities the mind and heart. Every word and phrase in the book reeks of so much soul, giving one hope and joy as one traverses through this journey.” – Barnes & Noble reader
“A gentle refocus from the wise and gifted Kat Lehmann.” – Amazon reader
“A delightful and deep book of words and wonder for the phases of life, love, loss, and renewal.” – Amazon reader
“I will read and reread it as nourishment for my soul.” – Amazon reader

This has been on my TBR for a while, and I finally got to it! The author has an instantly likeable writing style, and the subjects are just what poetry was made for: reflection, nature, relationships etc.

  • TitleHush your Gums. Sheldon Sinnamon
  • Publisher: Lulu.com
  • Release Date: October 18th 2017
  • Average Rating: N/A
  • Amazon
  • Blurb:

Sheldon Sinnamon’s third poetry book, ‘Hush Your Gums’ is his least dark collection so far. Sinnamon gets loads off his chest whilst mixing between story telling and poetry. It is a perfect continuation to witness his development, maturity, variety and sarcasm. It is also a perfect introduction to Sinnamon’s work, being an easier read without it being too deep. This book includes the already published poem ‘Snakes And Ladders’ from a political poetry anthology released in early 2017. “This book was a challenge to me, I tried my best to keep it at a level of not too much darkness but yet still pour out a few journeys I’m going through” – Sheldon Sinnamon.


I have read Sheldon’s other two books of poetry, and I’m excited I didn’t have to wait long for book three!

There will be days when you

completely fall a p a r t

and that’s okay.

There will be days where

your ribs feel like blades.

Let them cut you.

There is beauty in the bleeding.

There is hope in the healing.

Christina Hart, bestselling author of Empty Hotel Rooms Meant for Us and Letting Go Is an Acquired Taste, releases her first full-length poetry collection.
Warning: This book contains sensitive content depicting sex, violence, abuse, drugs, and addiction.

This is the first book by Christina I have read and I’m a fan!

  • Title: Rotten Pleasantness. Veronica McDonald.
  • Release Date: May 5th 2017
  • Average Rating: 4.6/5 🌟
  • Amazon 
  • Available on KU
  • Blurb:

Veronica McDonald’s first chapbook is full of things dark and strange. In these 24 poems and flash pieces, the reader is invited on a journey through childhood nostalgia, teenage awkwardness, and unhealthy romances twisted by the powers of magical realism. Monsters will appear, the inanimate will come to life, and all will get lost in the murkiness between real and imaginary.

The poetry in this chapbook is certainly a little creepy! A great debut from McDonald.
