Pillow Thoughts IV: Stitching the Soul” by Courtney Peppernell

I finished reading this and I wanted to share. I think this was a wonderful end to the Pillow Thoughts series. Again, there are different sections in this book depending on what you are dealing with in your life. It’s a nice read, even if you aren’t dealing with any specific situation. My favorite from this one would have to be the one on page 51. If you love poetry, you should pick up the Pillow Thoughts series.

The final installment in this bestselling series completes the journey that Courtney Peppernell began with Pillow Thoughts. With 600,000 copies sold across the series, Pillow Thoughts continues to inspire all who dip into Courtney’s encouraging words.

Self-healing is the theme of the entire Pillow Thoughts series. While books II and III focus on healing the heart and mind, respectively, Pillow Thoughts IV offers a balm for healing the soul. Have a cup of tea and let yourself feel.

“Pillow Thoughts III: Mending the Mind” by Courtney Peppernell

I finished reading this one and I enjoyed it just as much as the first two. This one is split into different sections, same as the others, but it’s geared toward your mind instead of your heart. My favorite had to be the one on page 50 (I’ll let you read it for yourself). You need to read this, especially if you enjoy reading poetry in the first place. But you really should read this if you are dealing with any kind of hurt or rough situation.

In a voice that is inclusive and open to all, Courtney Peppernell presents a tribute to her readers in the third installment of her bestselling Pillow Thoughts series.

A beautifully raw and poignant collection of poetry and prose, Pillow Thoughts III continues the series from poet Courtney Peppernell. Fix yourself a warm drink and settle into Peppernell’s words as she pens a tribute to her readers who are bravely continuing their journey from hurt to healing.

“Pillow Thoughts II: Healing the Heart” by Courtney Peppernell

I’ve finished reading this one and I have to say, it didn’t disappoint either. Like the first book, there are different sections in this book depending on what situation you’re currently in in your life. However, this book is geared specifically towards your heart. My favorite from this book would have to be the one on page 135 (I’ll let you read it on your own).

Following the smash success of her best-selling book, Pillow Thoughts, Courtney Peppernell now returns with the follow-up sequel Pillow Thoughts II: Healing the Heart

Peppernell understands that healing is a process, and Pillow Thoughts II eloquently captures the time and experience that one goes through on their journey to peace through restoration. 

A collection of inspirational and comforting poems for anyone who is mending from a broken heart.

“Pillow Thoughts” by Courtney Peppernell

I finished reading this and thought I’d share. This book is split into different sections. Each section is meant to be read at different stages in life, I think. You should really pick up this book No matter what you’re going through in your life, there’s probably a section in here for you to read (especially if you need a little encouragement). Even if you are dealing with any specific emotion or issue, it’s still a nice read.

Make a cup of tea and let yourself feel.

Pillow Thoughts is a collection of poetry and prose about heartbreak, love, and raw emotions. It is divided into sections to read when you feel you need them most.

“Home Body” by Rupi Kaur

I finished reading this one over the weekend. Like with the first two, I was not disappointed with this one either. I think my favorite from this one was on page 39 (I’ll let you read it for yourself). I would recommend this for someone who is interested in reading poetry, however, I want to mention that this is probably more appropriate for adults.

Synopsis: rupi kaur constantly embraces growth, and in home body, she walks readers through a reflective and intimate journey visiting the past, the present, and the potential of the self. home body is a collection of raw, honest conversations with oneself – reminding readers to fill up on love, acceptance, community, family, and embrace change. illustrated by the author, themes of nature and nurture, light and dark, rest here.

i dive into the well of my body
and end up in another world
everything i need
already exists in me
there’s no need
to look anywhere else

Latest online order!

I got a couple of gift cards for Christmas so I decided I was going to spend them at my local book store. I ended up ordering off the website instead of going to the actual book store. I was able to purchase six books (seen at the bottom of this article) and a Hogwarts bookmark with the four houses on it (also seen below). Five of the six books, along with the bookmark, arrived on my front door step on the 30th of December and the final book just now showed up in the mail today. I don’t know why they showed up separately since I bought them all at the same time. None of the books had a later release date. Maybe that one book was shipped from a different facility than the rest of my stuff… Anyway, I’m just happy that I got all my stuff in finally.

“The Sun and Her Flowers” by Rupi Kaur

I finished reading this book this evening. Just like with the first book, I was not disappointed with this one either. I couldn’t pick a favorite from this book though….there were too many to choose from. I’d recommend this to anyone interested in reading poetry or anyone who could use something encouraging to read (the poetry in this book may be for adults only).

Divided into five chapters and illustrated by kaur, the sun and her flowers is a journey of wilting, falling, rooting, rising, and blooming. A celebration of love in all its forms.

“Milk and Honey” by Rupi Kaur

I read this over the weekend and this is my first time reading poetry (this is also my first book for this year). I would like to say that I was not disappointed with this book. You can tell that the author wrote about some life experiences in this book so there will be a lot of thinking and feeling that comes from reading this. I think my favorite poem in this whole book is on page 53 (I’ll let it be a surprise to you until you’ve read this for yourself). I would recommend this to someone who enjoys poetry (the poetry in this book may be for adults only).

The book is divided into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose. Deals with a different pain. Heals a different heartache. milk and honey takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.
