Thousands of Mornings (Musings of a Bibliophile Book 1)
Thousands of Mornings is a varied collection of poetry and photography. “Thousands of Mornings” is the first poem in the collection, written when Amanda Leigh was 20. The poems range from things she wrote at the age of 12 to the age of 20. Horses, family, friends, love. And then when she started experimenting a bit more with her poetry she wrote a couple of poems in dual point of view; “Broken Boys” and “Long Distance Call”. The photography ranges from age 17 to age 20. If you asked Amanda to pick one theme for this collection she doesn’t think that she could put her finger on it. It is a collection about love, faith, friends, family, hope, nature and dreams. It is about our Thousands of Mornings and how we should cherish them.
Beautiful Broken (Musings of a Bibliophile Book 2)
“It was truly a privilege to read this poetry collection. Each poem was a stand-alone treasure.” ~ Jessica VanderWerff, author of Like A Child: A Collection of Original Poetry
Life is a beautifully broken piece of art. Fractured pieces coming together to form our selves, our hearts, our souls, our world. A beautiful, fractured mosaic. One we build and shape day by day. In her poetry collection Amanda Leigh explores what she sees and has seen in humanity and in her life and self. Showing pieces of herself while at the same time taking on current and controversial issues. She bares pieces of her soul in every poem. Reveals pieces of herself and comments on current issues in her new collection, Beautiful Broken.
Holiday Hospital stay
This poetry collection includes poems Amanda Leigh wrote after her hospital stay in December 2012. They are not pretty, fluffy pieces. They are sometimes graphic, sometimes silly, but they are real. These are some of the things Amanda was feeling then. She felt that it was important to get these real and raw thoughts out there. She wanted to keep the “loopy” quality of the poems; as they came from her head straight after she got home. She felt that they showed the state of her mind at the time better that way. While it is a different experience for everyone, it rarely discussed what staying in a hospital can actually be like. This is her experience.
