Book Review

Stab Love with Flower Stalks is indeed a collection of love notes, drenched in the distinct art of subterfuge. Amethyst Saw collection is filled with odes to lovers of all kind who embrace the sensual feeling of intimacy and passion.

These notes are ethereal works of art that richly opens up the mind and soul as they sneak up on you like the endless flowing of waterfalls, with no essence of passing time, forever embedded.

This collection is a nudge to women and queerness, with a plethora mix of subtle tones exploring love and sexual liberation. The message I got loud and clear from these notes is to be free, love loudly⁠—whoever we want to, our bodies and embrace our sexualities.

This collection won’t take up to thirty minutes to read, it didn’t take me up to twenty minutes lol, but it took me a couple of rereads to understand and see the beauty, that is Stab Love with Flower Stalks, with its poetic writing style and like I said this book is drenched in subterfuge, so you really have to dissect each word one after the other to for you to connect with the stories in your own special way.
