❁Soft Magic

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,
