Searching for a profound way to propose to his love, F.S. Yousaf reread the letters she had written him. In them he found his proposal, as well as inspiration to write his own prose and poetry. From this inspiration, Sincerely was born. It carries messages of positivity, hope, and most of all, true love.


This book was provided by the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Central Avenue Publishing and Netgalley!

Sincerely, is a poetry collection that was previously self-published and is now published by Central Avenue Publishing. This poetry collection is a collection full of love letters and love poems.

I really liked the idea of this collection and I was really curious to see if this poetry collection was something for me or not. I really wanted to like this collection because it’s the first poetry collection that I read this year, but unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy it as much as I hoped to.

For some reason I couldn’t connect to the poems, I couldn’t ‘feel’ them. I’m not sure how to describe this feeling but usually, when I read poems I get this feeling, and now I did not. I guess this poetry collection wasn’t something for me or maybe at another time, I can enjoy it a bit more?

I do think that the meaning behind this collection is beautiful and some of the poems were really beautiful. I also really liked the illustrations in this collection, illustrations always give the book something extra! I just wish that I could’ve enjoyed this collection a bit more.
