Goodreads Synopsis:

In his second collection of poetry, The Dark Between Stars, he turns his attention to the dualities of our lived experiences—the inescapable connections between our highest highs and lowest lows. He captures the infectious energy of starting a relationship, the tumultuous realities of commitment, and the agonizing nostalgia of being alone again. While grappling with the question of how to live with purpose and find meaning in the journey, these poems offer both honest explorations of loneliness and our search for connection, as well as light-hearted, humorous observations. As Atticus writes poignantly about dancing, Paris, jazz clubs, sunsets, sharing a bottle of wine on the river, rainy days, creating, and destroying, he illustrates that we need moments of both beauty and pain—the darkness and the stars—to fully appreciate all that life and love have to offer.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. There was a lot of poetry that I connected with. Some of the poetry did feel a little repetitive but I really enjoyed how they were kind of affirmations sometimes how but how you should look after yourself first despite the love you have for someone else. I definitely felt some of the poems deeply. This poetry collection is the perfect gift for friends or anyone. The images that accompany some of the poems are gorgeous and vivid. They definitely amazed me and I can't wait to see more from Atticus Poetry.  Thank you so much to Jonathan Ball Publishers for providing me with a copy of this book.

Yours in Reading,
