I found a poem by Leav on the day of the breakup that brought me so much clarity... I've been compulsively consuming the rest of her poetry (at least what I can get my hands on) since. I'm a bit more on the "misadventure" side of things, but her writing truly strikes a chord in my broken heart.

That Day

I remember our highs in hues,
like the color of eyes
as the sun was setting;
the pale of his hands in mine,
and the blue of his smile.

I remember our sorrows in shades,
like the gray of the shadows,
which loomed that day,
and the white in his lie
when he promised to stay.

~Lang Leav

This is my third of hers, but I think it‘s actually her first book.. I adored this collection of poetry. She‘s got such a gentle, but powerful voice. Quiet and contemplative, I really enjoyed the structure too. The rhyme schemes were just slightly off kilter. Made them wonderful to read silently, but hard to read out loud. I kept thinking there be one more or one less syllable or the rhyme would just just a bit sooner each time. So beautiful 💗💗

My first experience with her poetry.
Written in three parts Misadventure, The Circus Of Sorrows and Love.
I enjoyed the middle section the most. The other two didn't really grab me.
This is her first collection. I will definitely try her others because I did enjoy parts of this one. But overall I was expecting more.
Have you read her work?

Another disappointment following Milk and Honey. If modern poetry was supposed to be like this, I‘m happy to skip all.

TheCanuckReader I feel the same about Milk and Honey, despite all off the hype! 2y
BookAlongBlog I havent read any Lang Leav yet. I agree some of the over hyped modern poetry is 👎 2y

Clwojick @BookBabe I liked a few of the poems quite a bit, but wasn't in love with the book as a whole. I will most likely look into her other books though. I took a few pics of my favourites, and I will be passing the book along to a friend of mine. 💞 2y

#TBRtemptation post 7! The Churchill Fellowship-winner is a poet and internationally exhibiting artist. This is a roller-coaster ride through an ill-fated love affair, from the first butterflies to the soaring heights to the plunging crash. She conveys complex emotions through simple verse. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎

I didn't really like this collection. Its whimsicalness and sugar-sweetness didn't resonate with me at all. The poems seemed superficial, and it was only the longer prose poems that made me feel something.

Leav's own illustrations throughout were pretty great though.

charissharpe Beautiful cover though! 2y

A collection of poems that strike a chord! It was a short quick read and I went back and read the whole thing all over again once I was done.

I've read some of Lang Leav's poetry on Facebook, and I liked it, so I grabbed this at the library. It...well, it isn't great. There were a handful of poems that had some brilliant lines, but overall, it felt pretty amateurish. Since I did think there were a few really good ones, and I've liked some of her stuff on Facebook, I will give another of her collections a try, and hope that this was just not the one for me. (I included one I liked.)

hyacinth I am with you. Some lines are great but then as a collection I don't have a comment. Her books are usually a hit in the GR awards though! 3y

Very short and fun read. Poems of love and sorrow. Although some poems I enjoyed and understood, others I didn't get and thought colorless and uninteresting.

Wonderful and fluid way with words. The author makes it so easy to read, not because it is simple language but because it is often like she stole your own words and coloured them in, and I think that reading poetry should feel that way.

Tarlia You hit the nail on the head about why she's ragingly popular. 4y
Shortstack Why just so so? This review sounds all positive? 4y
