Hardest Poetry Book You’ll Ever Read (Probably)

Well, it’s that exciting time again when I can announce the release of a new publication! 😀

I’m super thrilled to be able to share with all of you Anarchy for the Innocents, which I’ve been working on for the past few months, and was in fact one of the reasons for not being too active here on this blog.

It has become an annual tradition of sorts on this blog to post a list of books I have read in the last twelve months. This might perhaps provide some inspirational reading ideas for you, dear readers.

This year I’ve managed to whittle that down to 2.5 months – which is impressive for me. Although I know the source material and seem to breeze through each page, I never somehow manage to complete the book in that 1 or 2-week reading period that some fans claims to be able to do.

Whether you celebrate Christmas or any another religious feast, or simply celebrate none, here’s my best wishes to you all!
