My review of Wild Girl:

I absolutely adore this story; It’s heartwarming and beautifully written. The way it tackles the grief of both Sebastian and Rose losing a significant other and finding each other is sensitive and beautiful. The characters themselves are lovely.

The characters, Rose and Sebastian, each have their own secrets and problems, which allow them to relate to each other in a way that other people, in real life or otherwise, can’t.

Another thing I love about this story is that, although the characters are going through difficult periods of  their lives they still go on and try to laugh or make a few jokes, just like real people, which is one of the reasons why they’re so relatable.

I highly, highly recommend this story to anyone and everyone. 💚

My review of (You Make Me) Spill My Ink:

Mona Soorma’s way of formatting these poems into dairy entries, that allow her to talk to her muse, is wonderful. She gives you a feeling of peace when reading her poetry and since it’s set in the months of the year you really get a feeling of the seasons rolling into another and when her muse strikes the most.

I’ve never read about someone personifying their muse in such a unique way as Mona has done:

“It’s my pen, but I write in your ink…”

“I flow out of you and you flow into me in scrawls of flowing ink…”

These examples are just the beginning of her well-written poems. This book really is a poetry collection as all the poems just work so well together. Also the word choice (“…pull me into your luminous oceans of creativity?”) gives the book a sense of magic. ❤️

Overall, I believe that the writing is beautiful and dreamy.

I highly recommend this poetry collection. 💚
