Review of Visions of a Quantum Woman, Margaret Duns by Kristiana Reed

  Originally published on Reedsy Discovery.  Duns' Visions of a Quantum Woman is unlike anything I have ever read. I am not normally one to choose a book which is autobiographical, let alone one which explores Quantum Physics. However, I am incredibly glad I did. Duns' sensitive and honest documentation of her visions and what they have … Continue reading Review of Visions of a Quantum Woman, Margaret Duns by Kristiana Reed

Review of The River in the Trees, Jacqueline O’Mahony by Kristiana Reed

ARC review for Amazon Vine The River in the Trees by Jacqueline O’Mahony really is a special read; think Cecelia Ahern but grittier and subtle in how it weaves Ellen and Hannah’s stories together. O’Mahony’s use of dual narrative is a triumph as it showcases the parallels which exist between lives even one hundred years … Continue reading Review of The River in the Trees, Jacqueline O’Mahony by Kristiana Reed

Review of Death of a Good Girl, Michelle Marie Jacquot by Kristiana Reed

Originally published on Reedsy Discovery.  Jacquot’s Death of a Good Girl is unlike any poetry collection I have read.

Review of somewhere between shadow and light, Mariesa Faer by Kristiana Reed

Originally published on Reedsy Discovery.  somewhere between shadow and light harnesses the power of short sentiments and detailed illuminations of the soul. Love, lust and sensuality float alongside loss, grief and fury in this collection; showcasing the kaleidoscopic nature of human experience. The theme I felt permeated the entire collection, however, was liberation. There are pieces … Continue reading Review of somewhere between shadow and light, Mariesa Faer by Kristiana Reed

It’s clever, it’s honest, it’s spiritual, it’s cathartic, it’s a modern-day masterpiece. “The … Continue reading Melody Lee Reviews Conversations with My Higher Self by Rachel Finch

Kindra M. Austin Reviews Kristiana Reed’s Between the Trees

"My reflection in the train window settles between the trees beyond the glass lining the field of gold." In itself, the opening of the title poem speaks of forlorn reluctance, wishes, and wonders. It must be because there’s something so powerful and intimate about one’s reflection; we study ourselves and pick up every nuance, whether … Continue reading Kindra M.
