I’m sorry I started this review that bad but man I felt kinda frustrated for not liking it as much as I thought I would. I mean, I’ve seen it everywhere and I love the cover and I was really excited to read it and love it and quote it everywhere, you know what I’m saying? I declared it in my heart my favorite contemporary poetry book before I opened it and man, I should’ve held my horses I guess.
That wasn’t even poetry. Those were phrases written in separate lines with no rhyme or that feeling you get when you read poetry and you know that’s a poem and you read it with a special tone (Thanks Lang Leav for showing me what contemporary poetry is). I loved 2 writings maybe? but that’s all I can say about it.
Sorry, Rupi Kaur. Maybe the next one will be for me.
A book that disappointed you
With a great regret I inform you that my disappointment is caused by Rupi Kaur’s Milk and Honey. I had other expectations and I thought I would love it so much but
unfortunately I felt a little bit frustrated cause it wasn’t what I thought it would be.
I think it’s time to focus on some poetry this time. Contemporary poetry. I chose Love and Misadventures by Leav Lang because the cover is absolutely adorable, I mean look at this:
I love poetry but contemporary poetry is my favorite and I always devour the poems. This book sent Lang Leav to a special place in my heart and I can’t wait to read some more but I have to take it slow cause I don’t wanna read all of them in a single day lol.
I’ve read many bad reviews about this one and I sincerely don’t get it. I know it’s not your typical shakespearian and sophisticated play of words but it really does its job, it makes you feel things. It sends you on a rollercoaster and it’s full of emotions. It’s so crazy relatable to a lot of us, it was an amazing read.
No it doesn’t have complex poems but I don’t think you need complexity when you know how to write and what to say and the author nailed it. The words are real and raw from the heart. No time to pretend.
