I read this beautiful collection while on my way home from work. This poetry book can be read in less than an hour. I loved all of this and it resonated with me. Even the illustrations gave this book an added touch to the amazing writing.

Hummingbird is about a relationship that fell apart and how Sophia found herself anew. She talks about her feelings and thought process through and after the relationship. Some of the poems mentions experiences that she went through and didn’t think of till she met this person. And it was so relatable because as humans, we sometimes don’t completely grasp something till we’ve been through it ourselves.

I felt like I was going through the motions with her. I found myself longing and being positive in the end.

This one is added to my favorites list for 2017.

Here are some of my faves:


When I was fifteen, I got
sick. No cure, only
treatment. When I was
sixten I was assaulted. I
used to joke that at least
I got the bad stuff out of
the way early, as if there
was a cap on how much pain
a person could endure over
the course of their life.

– Obviously, I had never
been in love

  1. You are just adding so many poetry books onto my to-read list Gretchen, I really need to start making my way through them. This one sounds amazing, I love the cover and the pictures you posted of the poem and the illustration that, I’m assuming, went alongside are beautiful. Also the fact it can be read so quickly is definitely a plus. I could get through this on my way to work one day! 😀
    Great review. 🙂

  2. Those are some powerful poems! That must have made for a gut-wrenching commute home. It seems like the most powerful poetry comes from strong emotion. I just wish that powerful happy emotions could create such powerful verses as well. Here’s hoping for the future!
    …That said, I’m totally adding this to my TBR. It sounds beautiful.
