My View - I love to read and write and with my budding efforts to write I have a strong inclination for poetry. But what drew me to this book was actually the author - Romila, is one of the strong females I have encountered online and admire. So when she posted on Twitter if anyone was interested in reviewing her book I jumped at the chance. Cheery on the cake, the book happened to be a collection of 26 Haiku's.
For the people unaware of the term, a Haiku is a three line poem with limited number of words.
It is very difficult to write a Haiku and even more difficult to get the perception that the writer wants to be perceived, to get through the audience. Midnight Musings is a light and relatable read.
Yes, Haiku is something that the-ever-busy generation who is pressing against time will love to read in a jiffy. But I'll say these Haiku's are to be read and lived through once because these deal with the little things we go through every day. Hence are an automatic connect.
I'll rate it a 3 out of 5 for being crisp and connecting read.
