I’m such a huge fan of Lang Leav so when I saw this book, I just had to buy it! 

I always love how organized Lang’s collections are. She knows how to come up with with an overarching theme and how to follow it. She never tries too hard to make her poems fit into the theme. That is very true with this collection. It was effortless the way the poems came together to convey her message. 

However, for some reason, there was something missing from this collection. I can’t quite place it, but it was lacking something. It could be because some of the pieces didn’t have titles so it felt slightly incomplete. 

That being said, I still enjoyed it and had a ton of favorites. Some of them were:

  • Someone else (pg. 17)
  • Vultures (pg. 29) 
  • Regrets (pg. 35)
  • Idols (pg. 45) 
  • Your Right to Love (pg. 47)
  • Too Young (pg. 61)
  • I Had You (pg. 71)
  • The Friendship Bond (pg. 75)
  • Flowers (pg. 93)
  • Saltwater (pg. 107)
  • Shut Out (pg. 113)
  • Anxiety (pg. 153)
  • Obsession (pg. 155)
  • Sunday Afternoon (pg. 177)
  • Something Else (pg. 181)
  • Write for Yourself (pg. 193)
  • Springtime (pg. 205)

Overall, this was a wonderful collection of poetry!
