Since its been months after I posted my first book review here, I realized that I should continue posting more book reviews since I’m a book worm myself. 🙂
For me, this book isn’t like any other ordinary books I’ve read because this one really caught my attention when Ate Marla first posted this on her Instagram.
Its been a year since I’ve bought this book but anyway, here I am going to introduce it!
In Case You Come Back
This book of poetry contains musings on:
adventure, anniversaries, the beach, breakfast, childhood, clouds, constellations, courage, delayed gratification, dragonflies, eating alone, falling in love, first dates, frenemies, goodbyes, growing up, half – truths, heartbreak, holding hands, homecomings, insecurities that follow you around, the internet, jealousy, kisses, marshmallows, memory, mornings, mortality, newsletters, opposites, paper cuts, pixie dust, plane crashes, popularity, queues, rain, report cards, room service, science, a sea of coffee, shipwrecks, sick days, souvenirs, space, tattoos, tense lunches with mom, trains, travel, waiting, weekends, white dresses, yoga
I really love this book because….
First, I love reading books!! Most especially when books are about love, youth, life and about poetry. Reading books is one of my hobbies whenever I’m not doing any school works. I love putting myself inside the book so that I will be able to put myself into the character’s shoe. Imagining while reading also adds up to the idea of the book while I’m reading.
Second, the book’s cover really caught my attention. For me, it looks like a bit of white aesthetic and it’s also instagrammable! It’s also very handy and can bring it anywhere you like; i.e: bring it while on a road trip if you want to have some peace and imagination in your mind through this poetry book; it would be lovely if you would bring this book with you in a coffee shop. After getting your coffee or frappucino, I think you’ll have a good read at it!
Lastly, I love making poems that’s why I really have to buy this one! I can’t resist on just looking at it at a book store and leave it all hanging in the book shelves, that’s why I asked my Dad to buy if for me because he really knows that I collect lots of books and I love reading! (Note: When I’m bored, I’m in my mood or when I’ve nothing to do, I usually gives attention to my writing skills that’s why I always write lots of poems, haikus, confessions and short stories.
