I received this book for free through a complimentary Pressed Poet box. Pressed Poet is a poetry subscription box.
I liked this collection of poetry as a whole, but I didn’t like it as much as her other collection, Uncaged Wallflower. I related to that collection a whole lot more than this one. Uncaged Wallflower really spoke to me on a personal level. There weren’t as many poems in this collection that made me feel that way.
This book felt a lot like a Rupi Kaur or an Amanda Lovelace book. Many of the poems were in the same realm as theirs, so this collection didn’t feel as fresh and new as Uncaged Wallflower did. But if you like that kind of poetry (like I do), then you’ll probably like this book.
The overall themes of this book were great. They were super positive and feminist and I really liked that. The little illustrations were a nice touch too.
All in all, if you’re looking for a less known poetry collection similar to Amanda Lovelace or Rupi Kaur, then pick this book up!
