Do you ever daydream about how much and how you want to be loved when you're alone? Do you think you like someone but are hesitant to let them know? Are you concerned that you won't find love? Would you like to see a lovely illustration of true love? Violet by Sabrina Simon is the book for you. It's a beautifully crafted collection of poems that will provide you with a new yet compelling insight into the true nature of your feelings. Simon wrote every word with charming, tender honesty, and each poem is the result of emotions that are all personal to her and from her very soul.
"Are You in Love?" was the poem I liked the most in the collection. In this poem, Sabrina Simon paints a stunning, vivid picture of how most of our bodies unconsciously respond when we are in the presence of someone we genuinely admire and like. This poem made me remember some of the most beautiful moments I've personally experienced when in love. My favorite aspect of Violet was how Simon never ceased adding humor which always made me smile. Simon tells the reader to stop wondering if they are really in love, especially when they wonder what to say next in a text because that is the first sign that they are really in love. She even goes further to tell readers that if they detect this sign, they should check with a "local doctor" because they already have the Falling in Love disease. I laughed out loud in this instance. I found Violet a rare read, and feel honored to have met an excellent author whose work I look forward to reading in the future.
