How I got this book:
Took advantage of a free Amazon download promotion

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

a collection of inspirational poems about love, hope, pain, grief, self-discovery and empowerment ... 

you grew on me

the way wild flowers grow on rock

turning all those rough edges

into something beautiful


one day

you will finally

meet yourself

and it will be love

at first sight


I've had A Jarful Of Moonlight on my TBR list since I saw In Tori Lex's review of the book way back in August 2017 and now I am absolutely kicking myself for having procrastinated so long before getting around to reading it. I adored this poetry collection! Mirsadeghi composes her poetry in mostly brief stanzas such as the two quoted in the synopsis above. Each snapshot has amazing clarity, a vivid insight into the poet's mind at that moment. I loved feeling her mood changes from the ache of intense romance to the poignant sadness of exile. I am now sorely tempted to buy myself a print copy of A Jarful Of Moonlight as well because I think it deserves to be a tangible item, frequently thumbed and quoted from, and perhaps even gifted to a lover.

  1. Those quotes are beautiful! I'm definitely going to look into getting a print copy of this (I absolutely agree with you that sometimes reading a book in print instead of digitally just makes the experience so much better). I've recently been on the hunt for new poetry collections to add to my shelves and this sounds like the perfect fit. Lovely review, Stephanie!
