Reading Pillow Thoughts by Courtney Peppernell

by Bia Ahmed, June 7, 2020

I didn’t expect to like this as much as I did, first off because I’m not much into poetry, and especially this kind where it feels like you literally just added line breaks between paragraphs and started calling it that, and I don’t know if it’s just me but it felt more like I was reading lyrics from a song, But I’d be lying if I said this didn’t make me feel giddy and curled my toes at so many parts, this was such a sweet and romantic read with lots of self-growth elements involved in it too that I’d love to revisit parts of it randomly.

This is the kind of book that felt like a personal read that I’d be too embarrassed to recommend this to anyone. And I get why people wouldn’t like it as much as I did because I know there are things that people can find to be critical about. It gets corny, it gets emotional and feels like it’s for those who tend to overthink a lot even about the smallest things, sounds like a blend made for me because I don’t mind the corniness one bit!

I don’t care about the way it’s written, or that some of the lines are choppy or lack depth. This book is not perfect and maybe that’s why this made it more real for me. Maybe mine is not a fair review based on the fact that I don’t have much knowledge about proses and poetries but this still made me feel so good and I’m glad I picked this up on a whim.

I wanted to share the highlights and my favourite lines from this but there are just too many to share them all, it’s a shame, really.

This is a relatively quick read too! I finished it within an hour and read it twice after that. Will start on with the second book as well very soon.
