During the weekend I stumbled upon an article and ended up doing something I have NEVER done in my entire life: I paid for an app. I saw an article on The Love Book – a book AND also an app that has famous love poems, quotes and other excerpts related to love. Many of the poems are narrated for the app by such talented people as Emma Watson (my idol), Tom Hiddleston (my fangirl crush) and Helena Bonham Carter (one of my favorite actresses). I can’t tell you how many poems I’ve already listened to while drinking coffee and looking at rain beating down the windows. Especially Helena Bonham Carter’s voice is perfect for the audio, she has a way of making the poetry just float straight into the listener’s soul.
The Love Book is an actual book as well if you prefer to be able to turn the leaves. I wanted the app because of the audio option, which can actually be very relaxing; I think I’m going to make a habit out of listening to the poems before going to sleep. At only 3.27$ the app is inexpensive while at the same time offering so much. For example, the selection of poetry ranges from William Blake to John Lennon. You can also favorite excerpts or even make a poem of your own.
You can get more information and download the app HERE!
