Title: Your Soul is a River
Author: Nikita Gill
About the book: Your Soul is a River is a poetry book about the journey of healing from trauma and becoming whole again.
The book is divided into 8 parts: The cosmos, Fire, The storm, Ache, The sea, Wild, The earth and Heal.
My thoughts on the book:
I´m not completely sure about how to review this book, it was such a special and beautiful poetry collection and i already now that some of the poems will stay with me for a long time. I loved the way Nikita Gill used words in her poems, and the way she used them to describe emotions.
This book is filled with beautiful metaphors and although they got a little bit repetitive after a while, I really loved some of them. And as often is the case with poetry, there were both poems that I really loved and poems that I didn´t felt a very big connection with.
But I think that what I loved the most about Your Soul is a River is that you feel like the book understands, it understands you and your emotions. I loved that.
Here are some of my favorite poems from the book:
And did I mention that the cover is beautiful too? It´s really gorgeous.
So yeah, although I don´t think this is a book for everyone, I personally really loved it and would really recommend it.
