I met Bianca Sparacino on ThoughtCatalog.
com and through her book, The Strength In Our Scars This book and the aforementioned, are two of my favorite books, of thousands, ever I can honestly say, two Authors, Naguib Mahfouz, Nobel Laureate for Literature, and Bianca Sparacino, make me feel like the proverbial fly on the wall, looking at my life, with such honesty, hope and joy.
I liked this poetry collection but I might not have been in the appropriate mood for it when I read it I was quite angsty and in a wallowing headspace so it ended up being too peppy for me That is to say, I think I would have appreciated thisif I needed a pick me up It was definitely encouraging and affirmative, especially if you re in a bout of depression or demotivation Unfortunately, I was kind of relishing feeling like a victim the time I read it so we didn t click hangs head in shame Aside from the lack of connection with it, the latter parts were very repetitive that I found myself just going through them without feeling them because YOU JUST SAID THAT OVER AND OVER AGAIN WE VE BEEN HERE BEFORE It felt like one of those speech videos meant to inspire or encourage you because I could predict what s going to be in the poem after a quite few kept on repeat
I became familiar with the author on Thought Catalog I think she has a beautiful perspective to share on love and humanity If you are in need of some affirmation that the love you long for truly exists, you will enjoy this collection of essays.
However, you ll have to be in the right mind frame to digest it, because it s quite sticky sweet and metaphorical, comically so at times Like you get the sense that the author probably makes herself cry with her own beautiful sentiments If you read it all in one sitting, which is easy to do, you ll find yourself rolling your eyes at her affinity for the words bones and cells and ribcages Yet it somehow works, her voice is distinctive and if you re seeking out this book, you probably are in the mind frame to receive it, find it inspirational and comforting and be b Î Seeds Planted in Concrete (English Edition) ¼ I was looking for a specific book One that could help inspire me in a time that I was feeling down that wasn t all about break ups since that didn t relate to me This book is amazing I bookmarked so many pages to refer back to and have shared it with others who needed it Easy read, helps your mind relax as well as body and appreciate life.
