I was expecting a constant rush of feelings when reading but that didn‘t occur always. Your Soul is a River is such a compelling title. I was instantly drawn in. My main criticism is that the poems became repetitive in some sections as if I was reading an alternative version of a poem in this collection. However, at the same time, I rather loved the repetition of some of the motifs, but I'm conflicted so it's 3 stars for me.
My very first read this year. I enjoyed this poetry collection. It was divides into eight parts and I thought the astronomical theme was brilliant. My only problem was some words and messages were used repetitively and it somehow loses the poem's meaning as well as the connection to the reader. Overall, Nikita Gill's writing is beautiful and her poems are heartfelt and inspiring.
My Rating : 3.5 out of 5 stars
This was a good poetry book. I‘m new to poetry but I liked the layout and the subjects she talked about. I don‘t think I read poetry right, I just read them all at once and finish the book but I get the jist and enjoyed it quite a lot. If you have any other poetry recs for me that would be great!
- not the right book but Litsy doesn't have this one listed. I don't know if right now is NOT the moment for me to read a book like this, but holy cow... I don't think I can handle poetry/prose right now where almost every line is "but I'm messed up." I feel very little sympathy to where she sounds whiny.
