A Strangely Wrapped Gift by Emily Juniper

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Recommendation: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“Sometimes gifts look questionable until unwrapped. Sometimes bad things happen and good things spring from them. Sometimes gifts are as strange as they are beautiful.”

Disclaimer – I received a free digital download of this book by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

As an avid reader of poetry I really enjoyed A Strangely Wrapped Gift. I found many of the poems to be very uplifting and encouraging, something very much needed in a world rife with negativity, particularly against the feminine form.

That’s not to say that the book didn’t have its dark and heartbreaking moments, a lot of which I wish I couldn’t relate to but unfortunately I can. I really enjoyed the authors style of writing and ability to capture emotions in her poems.

“I trace the stretch marks on the soft parts of me, like fissures in the ground dug by plate tectonics when the earth was new, or mighty canyons carved by glaciers during the last ice age. All things that shaped the world right here, on the quiet parts of my body.”
