Déjame Contarte lo que dice el Corazón by Paloma Alcantar (Spanish book) - un paseo a través de los diferentes matices del amor. Cada frase escrita aquí es una nota mental para la autora, y para cualquier corazón dispuesto a aceptarlas. En ellas descubrirás la fragilidad de la vida, y el que a veces es imprescindible romperse toda para ver la claridad desde otro enfoque. Deseo que de la mano de la poesía, te reconcilies con el corazón y le abras la puerta a esta energía en todas sus formas.
If Love Had A Name by Davina Ferreira - an outstanding collection of poems centered around real womanhood. It is a lyrical whirlwind of self-love, independence, and the courage a woman needs to explore the world without a partner holding her hand and leading her through it. Ferreira has gathered up every ounce of womanly pride necessary to stand on her two strong feet and placed it here between these pages.

Mujer de Color (es) by Alejandra Jimenez - Concocted into a short collection of poems, lyrical essays, prayers, and portraits, Mujer de Color(es): A Poetic Experience is—an ode to imperfections, an ode to the divinity within the mundane, an ode to our metamorphic culturas, an ode to the reverberant voices of brown women and femmes. It is the act of looking at your fears straight in the face and honoring them for trying to protect you but surrendering them to achieve growth. It is a reclamation of our feminine strengths: nurturing, resilience, sexuality, creativity, spirituality, and so many more. It is one path, of a billion, towards healing one person and, through it, the collective feminine consciousness; Y, esto es solo el principio.
