5.0 out of 5 stars An Indulgence for Lovers of the Poetry Hybrid Genre: A Fun & Inspiring Page-turner
By Alex on March 4, 2019
About "A Book of Chrissyisms"
"Chrissyisms" is an indulgence for lovers of the poetry-hybrid genre--133 pages of poems, essays, short stories, and quotes. It's particularly great for readers who enjoy contemporary pop-poetry, though "Chrissyisms" is (generally speaking) more mature in its content. Also, Strigas amassed many of her most popular lines/quotes from social media to elaborate upon their meanings; what inspired them, what she learned, and so forth. It's great for readers interested in getting to know Strigas as an author, and the book isn't an egotistical read.

It's for writers and it focuses on the creative process and life as a writer, though not everything is about writing. The book is certainly relatable for all. What I enjoyed is that it's humorous and vulnerable and easy to digest without being a childish. There's (in my opinion) a ton of bland, soulless dribble in the pop gene--"Chrissyms" is unique and thoughtful.

Girls and women of all ages, and from different backgrounds will enjoy this--it's zany, inspiring, and interesting. It's been marketed as light-hearted; a keepsake, beach read, or even a coffee-table book. If you enjoy what you've been reading online, then this certainly won't disappoint; older readers might find "Chrissyisms" refreshing, perhaps even 'redemptive' of the contemporary, pop-poetry movement. Go ahead and give it a read!

Book Design:
It's a beautiful design reminiscent of a diary (appropriate being that her journals inspired this book). There are no doodles/scribbles. There are no large, empty, white pages.

*Fans of Christina's Lit Mag Publications & Poetry Books:
"Chrissyisms" is nothing like her other books or individual publications which are dark, mature, and intense (many reviewers have coined her style as 'Bukowski meets Sexton').
