The Hungry Ghost Festival talks of Jen’s childhood and young adult life growing up in the North of England, the poetry is personal and reminiscent of a fairy tale. Each poem takes you on a journey, a short story almost with a seemingly clear beginning, middle and end.

I haven’t read a lot of poetry it is something that I’m slowly trying to read more of especially as I enjoying writing it reading more and more seems like a natural progression. Taking into account that my reading of poetry is somewhat limited, I found these poems more like mini stories, by the end of the book which is really short a totally of thirty-two pages but really enjoyed this collection and hope to read more from this author soon.

A Paint and Butterflies rating of 3/5 stars!

go with happiness
