Reviewed by Diana Lopez for Readers' Favorite

Lashonda's Book of Poems and Songs is wonderful for addressing emotional situations such as love, nostalgia, the beautiful things in life, and finding courage in oneself through poetry. Lashonda Beauregard splendidly uses harmonious poetic elements to orchestrate short poems, the representation of her own experiences. She shares all of herself with us, what is in her heart, her dreams and truths, as can only be transmitted through good poetry and dedication. The poems are very enjoyable and inspirational, concrete and full of meaning. Lashonda's Book of Poems and Songs helps us see everything differently and tells us that life will give us all kinds of experiences, good or bad, but by accepting love and appreciating the details around us, everything can be better.

It's wonderful to come across books like this. Lashonda's Book of Poems and Songs has a magnificent composition in the poems. The words reflect what Lashonda Beauregard has lived and experienced in a very relatable way. What I like about this book is the strength that she manifests, the motivation that she gives to become as strong as a diamond. It is very nice to have a reminder that it is good to look back on our lives, to accept nostalgia, and continue on our way with all the experiences that come with it, as well as not letting go of our dreams. We all have stories to tell, but it is the way they are told that makes them shine, and this book is the perfect representation.
