Short poetry Very nicely written and an enjoyable read I loved the pictures too WHAT A BEAUTIFUL NIGHTMARE I became a big fan of Kris s poetry after following her on Instagram for her clever and steamy writing This book was easily my most anticipated fall read.This Beautiful Curse is the collaborative brainchild of the author and her fellow artist friends Together, they ve woven a gothic fairytale in which skillful writing and beautiful illustrations partner to put the readers in a haunting trance that speaks of both love and betrayal The book has so much soul in it The emotions are so expertly veiled by layers and layers of a dark playfulness It was so vividly written that I could almost hear the calliope And like a fine wine, it was a different experience when I revisited it I began to feel the agony of the story, which in turn reminded me of my personal struggles I believe it took enduring a great amount of pain to conjure up a work like this This Beautiful Curse is definitely worth reading and revisiting It s brilliant, creative and fun I sincerely enjoyed it.

Dark and wittyI expected a short storywhat a fantastic surprise Dark, silly, gothic verse that flowed while keeping me until the last line I ll say it, again, this author is going places. Wow if you are tired of the same old plots, stories and gimmicks in the books you are reading this is a must read breath of fresh art Clever I loved the verse I read it out loud and alone thusly creeping myself out just in time for Halloween. In terms of a poetry book, this one was by far one of the most fun I ve ever read And I encourage everyone to take a look It s reminiscent of the old Poe tales, you know the ones those full of dread Despite being a quick read, it was well worth the time So give this tiny tale a chance, I plead.The included illustrations only added to the allure, and that rhyme Of the overall tale, I found from the beginning, not only was it an enjoyable regale,I was drawn to keep reading.I look forward to reading by this very talented poetess. This Beautiful Curse was a touching gothic tell of Love and Despair This was a hauntingly good read short poems that made you open your mind into the darkside of Love and Life Author Kris Johnston nail it makes me think of one of my favorite movie Coraline a must read
