Reminder By Irene Willis


Hello Everyone,

I am so sorry for the massive gap between posts, this is the third week back at school, so the homework has really begun to increase unfortunately!

Anyway, today I will be reviewing a book that was posted to me in early January while I was overseas! This book is called:

Reminder By Irene Willis


On a trip with her daughter to untangle the mysteries of her family's past, a woman finds herself revising with increasing understanding and humour, the emotional landscape of her life - which was impacted by her father's alcoholism, but ultimately warmed by her successful second marriage - her awareness of the varied forms love can take and what survives.
(Collections of poems)


Please note that even though I was sent this book in exchange for a review, what you are about to read is 100% truthful and unbiased. I pride myself in writing reviews that I truly believe in.

Reminder by Irene Willis begins in the Depression and takes you on a journey through the decades that come after, and the honest poems featured in this book really paint a picture when you read them. 

These poems were so passionately written, and I could definitely tell how Irene poured her heart and soul into each line. Love really inhabits this book, which means that as I read it, my love for her style of writing grew immensely. The words on the page have a voice thanks to Irene, and really remind us of who we were, and who we are as people today.

With clarity, Irene Willis created a story where satisfaction for any bookworm can be found on every page. Even I, who hasn't read much poetry, couldn't help but fall for the syrupy words I was reading, that were expertly woven into a tale to remember. The intensity of this story was unbelievable, and I am so grateful to have read this book, and I look forward to reading more of her work.

Rating: 3.5/5
