Random Fact of the Day: Wyoming was the first state to allow women to vote.

Hello sunshines & Happy Friday! Today has been pretty eventful — I got some very delicious gelato earlier so my day has been made! Anyways, Friday Finds is a meme hosted by @adailyrhythm. It is a chance for you to showcase the books you’ve ‘found’ and added to your TBR list! They do not have to be books you purchased and they could’ve been found anywhere — bookstores, online, library, etc. Here are my most recent finds:

Arsinoe, a naturalist, is said to have the ability to bloom the reddest rose and control the fiercest of lions…

Having been previously described as an “aggressively personal poet”, Trista Mateer takes this to heart and then to paper in her first collection. Presented more or less in the order it was written, the poetry in Honeybee is in turns bitter, tender, and messy. Following the course of a little more than a year, the poems showcased in Honeybee chronicle the on-again off-again process of letting go…

Titled after the poem that burned up on Tumblr and has inspired wedding vows, paintings, songs, YouTube videos, and even tattoos among its fans, Mouthful of Forevers brings the first substantial collection of this gifted young poet’s work to the public. Clementine von Radics writes of love, loss, and the uncertainties and beauties of life with a ravishing poetic voice and piercing bravura that speak directly not only to the sensibility of her generation, but to anyone who has ever been young.

Have you read any of the novels I listed? What do you think about the ARCs listed? Chat with me in the comments! 🙂

Thanks for reading & I’ll see you next time…
