About this deal

Its theme is not specific but mainly focuses on love, letting-go-of-past, be-your-self, self-healing etc.

Each of them feels personal, almost as if reading another's diary, and they often deal with difficult content in beautiful ways which make you leave feeling empowered and strong. Trista Mateer is the award-winning and bestselling author of multiple poetry collections, including the feminist greek mythology retelling, Aphrodite Made Me Do It. Aphrodite Made Me Do It is a collection of prose-poetry, framed as a conversation between the author and Aphrodite, goddess of love, sex and beauty. My pain has always deserved a voice and I will not deny it that, but I won’t devote my life to it either.Known for her eponymous blog, she is now the author of multiple poetry collections, including When The Stars Wrote Back (2020), Aphrodite Made Me Do It (2019), Honeybee (2018), and The Dogs I Have Kissed (2015) which won a Goodreads Choice Award the year of its release. The bestselling LGBTQ+ graphic novel about life, love, and everything that happens in between: this is the fifth volume of the Heartstopper series. Also, some if not all the pictures and drawing - beautiful - have nothing to do with the poems they are associated with, it's disturbing and it makes the poetry book seem really cluttered, which is highly unpleasant. The million copy bestseller, A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara, is an immensely powerful and heartbreaking novel of brotherly love and.

She says there’s some dispute over the reason for our creation but that it definitely wasn’t to be gilded objects. As a tarot nerd, I appreciate the cards used within this book and how they add to the story being told, like with The Fool reversed in the beginning.Aphrodite Made Me Do It is an atypical sort of collection; it felt like a needed step away from poetry which makes a bouquet of the trauma and pain of its maker. I was a little horrified at an earlier review that said it came across as generic feminist poetry as I actually found this to be quite the opposite. In honor of that, I'm reviewing a poetry book I recently stumbled upon in my library's catalog on Hoopla and instantly fell in LOVE with. The poems here combine to make a feminist manifesto that inspires strength, courage, pride, and a negation of all society deems a woman's body to be and all the multitudes it actually contains. Mateer’s poetry touches on feminism, mental health, assault, and the unfairness of having our stories rewritten for us.
