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! 😍
