There are multiple images throughout which felt a little juvenile – they genuinely looked like images captured from google with clip art attached, or were images with poignant quotes on which you’d often see scrolling along your chosen social media platform. I think maybe I lack the background knowledge of the scenarios which were at the times of classical poets or I also lack the classical vocab too. In response to these representations, the poet presents the reader with a powerful goddess, who knows her own mind and who is very angry.

I do not even know what compelled me to give this collection a chance, but I am thrilled that I did. Each of them feels personal, almost as if reading another's diary, and they often deal with difficult content in beautiful ways which make you leave feeling empowered and strong.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products.

Aphrodite Made Me Do It is a feminist poetry collection about love, loss, insecurity, pain, and empowerment. I think it's great that so many people can turn to writing to express their thoughts, heal from their pasts, and fight for social justices.

Bestselling and Goodreads Choice Award winning poet Trista Mateer pulls out some tarot cards and asks for help in her goddess inspired poetry collection, Aphrodite Made Me Do It .it is also really interesting as it goes between the pov being of the author and being of the goddess aphrodite, but seeing themselves within eachother. In honor of that, I'm reviewing a poetry book I recently stumbled upon in my library's catalog on Hoopla and instantly fell in LOVE with. I am confident that a lot of readers will feel heard by Mateer’s poetry and I found them to be extremely accessible.

I really appreciated that, despite this being Aphrodite inspired, the author didn’t allow love or romance to be the biggest part of her story – she actually says as much in a few of her poems. After a poem introducing the author’s voice and relationship to love, she goes on to explain a dream she had in which Aphrodite visited her and asked, “What do you need?

There was something so unique about this collection and I love that the author included her illustrations and art work. Among all these other things, it’s an incredible view on many infamous women of mythology, and it gives a voice to the sides of their stories that we all too often overlook.

You will find grace between these pages and a little sadness, too - the kind that makes flowers grow in all of the places you need them most.With an enemies-to-lovers romance between a witch and a witch hunter, this YA fantasy series is highly addictive. Mateer’s poetry touches on feminism, mental health, assault, and the unfairness of having our stories rewritten for us.
