As you know, I have been trying this new thing for me where I tell you about a book I loved and share a free ebook link to that book if possible.
I saw this book on a post from a blog I follow; sadly, I can’t remember whose blog it was. Luckily I still remembered the cover and the title, so I looked up.
Honeybee is an honest take on walking away and still feeling like you were walked away from. It’s about cutting love loose like a kite string and praying the wind has the decency to carry it away from you. It’s an ode to the back and forth, the process of letting something go but not knowing where to put it down. Honeybee is putting it down. It’s small town girls and plane tickets, a taste of tenderness and honey, the bandage on the bee sting. It’s a reminder that you are not defined by the people you walk away from or the people who walk away from you.

Perfect for fans of Caroline Kaufman, Atticus, Clementine von Radics, Nina LaCour, Adam Silvera, and Becky Albertalli; or anyone interested in bisexuality, heartbreak, running away from your problems, and coming out.
Look for Trista Mateer’s other book of poetry, Aphrodite Made Me Do It and her contribution to [Dis]Connected Volume 1: Poems & Stories of Connection and Otherwise.
This one is a short book so go read it, and we can discuss it in the comments. I don’t want to voice my thoughts for now because I don’t want to bias your views on it. Since I find that poetry is personal and different for everyone.
