My Thoughts: Another delightful book of poetry from Lang Leav!
Having read Love & Misadventure from her earlier this year, I was eager to read her latest book & I was not disappointed!
While themes remain the same from her previous work, she effortlessly weaves together such gorgeous celestial imagery.
I’ve always adored quotes involving stars + the universe and reading these poems reminded me how they can be used to paint such a moving picture of love and loss with each and every word.
I tabbed many of the poems b/c they were just written so beautifully! I can definitely see myself re-reading these poems again & again in the future!
My only issue was that some poems don’t have a celestial/space theme which is what I expecting for all of them.
Regardless, they were all written beautifully, really capture such emotions and tell a story with each and every line.
Lovely and captivating imagery of the stars and universe help to tell tales of love and loss in Leav’s latest novel.
Highly recommend! Its a rather quick and overall enjoyable read. ❤
