I’m a runner with my feet firmly planted.
I’ve trekked miles but no surface.
I love without the skin of new lands to touch.
I’m hiking across a squeezed-up flesh earth;
grass, mountain and river,
overshadowed by lyric and verse.
I’m uprooted, moving daily from place to place
in the secluded parts of myself
covered in skin and skull bone.
I’m home, in the ink and the browning paper
I’m home, in the windowsill’s potted plants green
I’m home. All I need is to see.
Title: I Am More Than A Daydream
Author: Jennae Cecelia
Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Jennae Cecelia’s newest poetry collection, I Am More Than A Daydream, is so beautifully uplifting. I flew through the book, feeling so positive and motivated as soon as I had finished. I’ve picked it back up and flipped through my favourites a few times already, and I’m certain it’s a collection I’ll come back to for pick-me-ups in the future! The illustrations are also such a nice addition, and I loved how they complimented the mixture of both shorter and longer poems. Another beautiful collection from a wonderful poet.

Last night, I finished a Brazilian Netflix show called 3%. It hasn’t been advertised much at all, and I haven’t heard a single person talking about it. I found it after scrolling aimlessly through the sci-fi section a few times. It didn’t look like anything amazing, but I read the word ‘dystopian’ and something inside of me cheered a little. Dystopian – I hadn’t read or watched anything from that genre for a while. And it got me wondering…where did YA dystopian fiction go? Continue reading “Where Did The Dystopian Fiction Go?”

“She smiled, despite the clouds and snow spreading before her through the windows. They could make their own sunshine.”
Her guardian angel was pushed.
Keiron was never meant to be anything other than a hero. Born high above in a place of war and deception, he is Heartborn, a being of purity and goodness in a place where violence and deceit are just around every corner.
His disappearance will spark a war he cannot see, for Keiron has pierced the light of days to save a girl he has never met, for reasons he cannot understand. Livvy Foster is seventeen, brave, and broken. With half a heart, she bears the scars of a lifetime of pain and little hope of survival.
Until Keiron arrives.
In the middle of a brewing war and Livvy’s failing heart, Keiron will risk everything for Livvy, because a Heartborn’s life can only end in one way: Sacrifice.
Fall with Livvy and Keiron as they seek the truth about her heart, and his power, and what it means to love someone who will give their very life to save you.

Well, I can safely say that I read more than last month…that is, more than zero books!
I know, what an achievement, right!?
I mean, not a whole lot of books were read, and I’m now quite far behind on my reading challenge, but I still have hope that I will catch up in the last three months of the year (only three months left of 2016!!!???).
So in the month of September, I read…
