And so the fantastic Amo Jones is finally here! Day #11 of Pick-pocketing Poems♥


So literally minutes after posting Jennifer’s post yesterday, Amo sent me her stuff, and so I was like let’s do it today and get on track! I’ll apologize in advance if this post reads lack-lustre from the usual, that’s because I’m dead tired on my feet. But more on that later on..

Let us get on with Amo Jones.

I haven’t read a lot of books by Amo, but majority of the ones that I’ve read I have thoroughly enjoyed. Amo masters in writing suspense and thriller with a pinch of dark romance. Her writing just grabs you and I was so fucking excited when she said yes!

So without much fanfare, let us begin..


It was possible to lose love. To replace it with so much hate you couldn’t see straight. I knew that kind of hate. I didn’t wish it on anyone. Especially someone who had been the glue that held the five families together. There was something worse than the numbness. Something worse the monster inside me. It was the one inside him. Eating away at his soul, while he watched, while he fed it. There would be no peace.
—Rachel Van Dyken

Amo Jones—

The line between love & hate can at times, be used as bait…

The numbness that seeps through your bones, is only used as a shield, to stop your unforgiven fate… because the monster that’s hungry, bathes beneath the surface, while singing to himself, to wait…wait…wait

The soul is thirsty for love, but the monster is hungry for hate, so when he finally takes the bait, the line between love and hate, disintegrates…

—Amo Jones

About Amo—

Amo Jones is a small country girl totally winging this author thing (she’s probably doing it all wrong). She likes cake, loves wine, and her religion is magic. She’s a profound work-a-holic, but when she’s not writing, you can find her chilling with her kids & partner at the nearest beach, with a cocktail in her hand.

New Zealand is not a state of Australia and rugby is the best sport ever played.
