Recencione del Libro – Nova by Joanne Van Leerdam

Nova by Joanne Van Leerdam


I read a book called Nova

While sitting on my sofa

Drinking a mimosa

And never wanting it to be over

And that, my friends, is the extent of my poetic prowess.

Nova by Joanne Van Leerdam made me feel shit. I don’t like feeling shit. I fought it but I lost. It brings out the emotions of the emotionless.

Look out – she’s pissed. Her anger leaps from the page screaming in my face. My fists are clenched. I’m ready to join the fight and kick some ass.

Token smile

Weasel words;

What you said was

Not what I heard


Next stop – verge of tears. It’s the stop I never get off at. The personal sadness evident in Mothers Day and July 19, 2011 stopped at verge of tears and left me and my heavy heart on the platform.

Hot, hot, hot – is it hot in here or is it Nocturne? Lusty, passionate, seductive.

The emotional roller coaster that is Nova continues with every turn of the page. It’s a beautiful ride through a beautiful mind. This book stabs you in the heart. It cuts deep. A raw release of Joanne Van Leerdam’s – Bleeding Words:

Some wear their hearts on their sleeves

Others, as scars on their skin

Mine is exposed on written pages

That reveal the truths within

She made me feel shit and for that I am pissed. She made me feel shit and for that I have lived. They say that books change lives and I have a few life changers on my shelf. On the Road by Jack Kerouac. Howl by Allen Ginsberg. And now Nova by Joanne Van Leerdam.

Yeah right. An Indie on the shelf of legends. You must be joking. No joke people. Joanne Van Leerdam is the real deal and you might want to remember…
