#BookReview: Under Forgotten Skies by Anneliese Dahl and illustrated by J D Pernoste @intheminuses @bookroar_tweets
Hi everyone! Today, I have a book review for a beautiful book of poetry by an author new to me, Anneliese Dahl >>>
For those who enjoy heartfelt poetry, Anneliese Dahl shares, in this book of short poems, vignettes of humor, loss, passion and magic. Organized in 6 chapters with beautiful illustrations by Pernoste, this book brings you the sensitive heart of a young woman finding her way through life.
A Beautiful Book of Poetry
This collection of poetry cannot fail to move the reader. Wonderful illustrations accompany many of the poems. The book is broken into chapters and the work covers things such as loss, anger, whimsy & fantasy, love, passion, and so much more.
Usually, I highlight lines that stand out for me as I read; however, this book is in comic book format on the Kindle app, so I couldn’t notate. This also meant I couldn’t change the text size or book orientation, which made the logistics of the reading more difficult than they would have been with a straightforward eBook.
I ended up taking screenshots of some of the poems and illustrations that moved me …
I hope these snapshots show adequately just how lovely Under Forgotten Skies is. I’ll be taking a look at the poet’s other books for certain, and this read gets a solid five stars from me.
NOTE ON RATINGS: I consider a 3-star rating a positive review. Picky about which books I give 5 stars to, I reserve this highest rating for the stories I find stunning and which moved me.
5 STARS: IT WAS AMAZING! I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! — Highly Recommended.
4 STARS: I WOULD PULL AN ALL-NIGHTER — Go read this book.
3 STARS: IT WAS GOOD! — An okay read. Didn’t love it. Didn’t hate it.
2 STARS: I MAY HAVE LIKED A FEW THINGS —Lacking in some areas: writing, characterisation, and/or problematic plot lines.
1 STAR: NOT MY CUP OF TEA —Lots of issues with this book.
I’d love to hear what you think of this review. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
