    It was good, nothing too much but neither the worse. I enjoyed the majority of them but I couldn’t get the “story” or love it. But anyway, lately I love to pick this type of books because it help me to calm down and feel productive because I end them pretty fast.

    Truthfully, I read poetry to get inspired whether it be through poetic devices such as imagery, rhyme, etc... And I picked up this poetry book hoping that it would change my mind about dubbing modern poetry as "Instagram poetry." The results? Modern poetry has nothing! Certain phrases, the poet, decided to use have been overused and are common in most of the "poetry collections" coming out in today's society. Should I lower my expectations because I want something "new" that feels "fresh" (do pe Truthfully, I read poetry to get inspired whether it be through poetic devices such as imagery, rhyme, etc...

    This is so beautiful. I cried and cried reading it, both from heartbreak and from happiness. This book is magic. I'm definitely going to be buying a paperback so I can read it over and over again This is part a book about heartbreak and part about healing and hope. It's...well, much the same as every poetry book in terms of themes xD But this one stood out to me as so much more ❤️ It just really touched me. The author has such a beautiful way with words Would definitely recommend this one, 10/10 This is so beautiful. I cried and cried reading it, both from heartbreak and from happiness.

    love the using of flowers as metaphors. but apart from that, pretty basic, i feel like I’ve already read this.

    I absolutely adore the flower imagery and everything related to nature. I’m imagining reading her love poems on a flower bed with different beautiful colour 💓

    ''we are all flowers underneath the same sun we bloom in an array of colours. shapes. sizes. -this is what makes the garden so beautiful '' This is the most beautiful poetry book I ever read. I always dog-ear pages that really affect me, which was pretty much every page of this book. I love how all poems are in the same style, really form an ensemble and all made so much sense. And there we so many beautiful metaphors, especially about flowers.

    this was both beautiful and heartbreaking. it lacked depth imo but sometimes simplicity speaks volumes. none of it will particularly stick with me but i still enjoyed it none the less🤍 “chapters of your life will end, but you have multitudes of pages left in your book. and so many books after that.”

    There are some beautiful poems in this book, and I've noted and marked quite a few to revisit. One of the poems I loved was i believe in miracles, and i hope that you do too. because if you don't believe that they exist, then you don't believe in you.

    2/5 and I’m being generous. Most of the poems were meh, some quite repetitive. The ones about “God loves you” and “you’re my Jesus” cringed the hell out of me. Regardless, there were some good/decent ones. I wouldn’t recommend this book.

    It’s giving Instagram/Tik Tok poetry. Best part was the constant theme of flowers and nature throughout.

    It has a lot of deep lines and a very emotional feels. I think I would like to reread it anytime! It's very short but very worth reading, enjoyable, and powerful.

    Like every other poetry book I find that modern poetry has literally no personality. They all share the same tone, same structure, and same layout. This book reads like it's written by a highschooler and directed towards people who want a throw away Instagram caption.

    in every room i look for you even though we may be on opposite universes i'm somewhere between not knowing where you are and wanting to be there This was just okay to me. I saw one poem and I really liked it [not the one above] but other than that, the others were just not standing out.

You see, so many times it’s could have reached out and twisted my heart, and yet it barely indulged to even look at me like I mattered. It cared more about me looking at it, to try and make it more complex than it actually was. Sometimes I was in pain, wondering if it just wanted to use me for it’s kindle unlimited royalties. Because each poem was short with ocean depths never explored. Ringing like an alarm again and again. Probably hoping if they shoved the same meaning fifty times down my throat maybe it can weigh me down like manipulation until I finally say “wow, this broke me.” And than you think I am talking about something tragically beautiful. Well guess what. I’m fine. And I’m going to tell you something outright constantly just like this book does. Because this collection was tragically beautiful. It’s a tragic waste of potential. And now that I’ve finished. I realise I’ve spent more time writing this review, and contemplating my words, more than the collection ever challenged it’s audience to think or feel. ➖ Honestly, 100pages could have been cut out and it would've made the collection a lot better. Not only better, but the poems left could have been expanded and focused on more. There were so many poems that could have been weaved into one with a better impact, imagery and flow. Instead it read like everytime the author got inspiration for poetry they just jotted it down on their notepad, and kept it as it's own poem without further thought. I got to the 50pg mark and I felt like I was reading the same thing again and again. And it was sad, because there were poems that read good on their own. Basically, everything got very repetitive and extremely obvious. There was a line that just blandly said that: he yelled for so long she apologised because she just wanted quiet. And that was it! I thought you’re meant to take a base like that and build on top of it, layer it. But unfortunately a lot of poems were like that. And then there were multiple poems showcasing the same meaning (again and again). It actually got really annoying, I was forcing myself not to skim. So many poems could have easily been written into one, but they got all separated into repetitive four liners. There was even a short poem: “it would be easier if I could just unlove you” (pg 64). And I was reading it like: ‘yea, I got that message loud and clear 50pages ago. Did this really need a whole page for that?’ There was a short poem that said something like: ‘to aim for the moon instead of starts, the moon is brighter.’ But than another poem would say: “my dreams are bigger than the galaxies and I will achieve them one star at a time.” And I’m just so confused, because it reads the same, they’re like 10pages apart. Find a way to combine them or get rid of one of them. It’s not inspiration when it’s the same lacking thing. Build on it! The more I read, the more potential was ruined. For example, I liked: “You picked me up like a dandelion and ripped off my wishes.” But then so many other poems said a similar meaning. So either you cut them out or you manipulate them onto this one. Each page doesn’t have a Twitter word count, it doesn’t limit you to 289 characters. Page 152-155 read like one whole poem, not 4 seperate poems. And those poems average word counts were 6-12words each. This poetry collection really loses it’s emotional impact. You’re reading the same impact again and again. It read like strands of unedited thoughts. And nothing felt explored with depth. It was just all very beginners surface level. It’s kind of sad. Because it’s modern poetry like this where people read it and than claim “all modern poetry is bad.” And I hate to be that person. But this book collection does read like tweets. Like someone tweeted all of this and than just threw it into a book. With my final statement. I do want to say that though I originally said 100pgs should’ve been cut down. In my personal opinion, this collection should have been 50pages. And that’s not a bad thing. Just because you wrote 200 poems doesn’t mean you use all of them. You write a lot to find the gold and than see how to even improve on that. Fun fact: In self-publishing the longer your page count the less income you might make with your physical copies. Because if you want to have your paperbacks seen as affordable to your readers, you want your prices cheap. But the people that print the physical copies take a certain amount of that money, and the expected money they take in return is more depending on the page count and size, etc. So if you feel like your book needs a hundred pages gone, be nice to yourself and do it.

    chapters of your life will end but you have multitude of pages left in your book and so many books after that I liked this poetry collection a lot. I agree with the poet on her view of flowers that I have summarized what she encloses in her poetry book. "Flowers, for me, have always been a message of positivity. What appears to be such a fragile little thing has the strength to withstand so much: through wind, rain, and storms, they are still able to grow and thrive as something beautiful."

What appears to be such a fragile little thing has the strength to withstand so much: through wind, rain, and storms, they are still able to grow and thrive as something beautiful." Her poetry collection has three sections; A time to wither, a time to grow, and a time to blossom. Each section is done very well and her message is sincere. A great time for me to read this collection. I love the cover art, it just pulled at me. you cannot tell me that you can only love someone after a certain amount of time has passed love has no time limits or time frames - God loved me before i even existed
