Hello everyone! This is my short review of Soft Magic by Upile Chisala.
I gave this book 3.5/5 stars. There are so many beautiful passages in this poetry collection, but there were pieces that kept taking me out of her flow. Random one-line sentences and it seemed to be in my eyes a bit of filler, but never the less, most of the book was beautiful.
Two of my favorite lines from this collection were the following:
❁I am dripping melanin and honey.
I am black without apology❁
❁how wild it would be if
we could make each other happy!❁
This book really had some beautiful moments, if you are looking for a short and sweet poetry collection, this would be the one for you!
Until next time,
