Pretty as rainbows,

I do adore pretty girls,

Cute as anything,


I think she’s pretty

Cute smiles and shy glances,

But she loves me not


Meteors pound when

she’s around in the form of

heartbeats and sorrow.

My thoughts

The Moon Resides In Her Heart reads like a short story. Isabel Scheck’s haikus read like love-notes and thoughts written on a post-it, or to reflect today posted on Twitter. Impactful. At times so romantic and others are painful to read. The ebb and flow of a flow relationship and we stand by as a witness. 

I am not a huge fan of the illustrations in the book that go along with the poetry. But if the intent is to read like you are peeping into someone’s diary, then this works. I’m a doodle person too. I just ignored the artwork after a couple of pages and just focused on the words because Scheck makes you feel it. 

The Moon Resides in Her Heart may be small in pages, but it is huge in heart.

I received a free copy of this book and I am writing a review without prejudice and voluntarily.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

About the Author

My name is Isabel and I am 24 years old. I come from England, but I’ve lived in Switzerland my whole life. I love writing and drawing and have been doing that since I was 13 years old. My first ever self-published book on sale was published in March, 2018. It is called “When Daisies and Thunderstorms Collide”. I hope you enjoy my books as much as I enjoyed writing/drawing them! 🙂
