Can’t-Wait Wednesday | Where Hope Comes From: Poems of Resilience, Healing and Light by Nikita Gill

Posted January 13, 2021 by Stephanie in can't-wait wednesday / 21 Comments

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and talk about the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read.


Where Hope Comes From: Poems of Resilience, Healing and Light by Nikita Gill
Expected publication: February 18th 2021 by Orion Publishing Co

Instagram superstar and poet Nikita Gill returns to her roots with her most personal collection yet, including more than 20 poems exclusive to the US edition.

I took my worries out
and laid them carefully on the kitchen table.
Then began the slow but rewarding task
of fixing everything that needed more love.

Nikita Gill shares a collection of poems crafted as the world went into lockdown, tackles themes such as mental health and loneliness, and the precariousness of hope. This collection includes the phenomenal “Love in the Time of Coronavirus,” which was shared across social media over 20,000 times, as well as Gill’s poems of strength and hope, “How to Be Strong” and “Silver Linings.” Where Hope Comes From is fully illustrated with beautiful line drawings by the author.

All because everything is forbidden now,
I want to go up to the top of the Eiffel Tower
and sing at the top of my lungs.


I had no idea this book was coming out this year and especially not this soon so this was a happy surprise! After reading Great Goddesses: Life Lessons from Myths and Monsters and The Girl and the Goddess: Stories and Poems of Divine Wisdom and absolutely loving those books, Nikita Gill has become an insta-buy author of mine. Her poetry is timely, beautiful and I just love reading it so much. Also look how beautiful that cover is! ?

  1. Um… I NEED this in my life. Thanks for bringing it to my attention! I’ve not read any of Nikita Gill’s work yet but I have Fierce Fairytales and I’ve got my eye on Wild Embers so will definitely bump this new one up on my wishlist. It sound sooooooooo good!

  2. I’ve been getting into more poetry books lately, so thanks for highlighting this one. I’m not familiar with the poet, however. I’ll have to check their work out.

  3. I have one of her older collections on my TBR pile that I hope to get to this year. I will have to add this one to my wish list. It sounds wonderful. One of my goals this year is to read more poetry. I hope you love this collection when you read it!
