Just a little pre-bedtime reading. Lang Leav has been an incredible source of strength for me these days.
There were some poignant pieces throughout the book and Leav‘s drawings are beautiful. I did feel that a lot of the poems were too rushed and too similar. I also think that the impact of her words are far more powerful when she isn‘t trying to rhyme.

It‘s hard to believe that less than two years ago, this poem by Lang Leav accurately described my relationship. Hours upon hours on the phone and so many miles between us. And now we‘re less than 2 weeks away from one year of marriage!
I learned about this in Silent Book Club on Facebook! Book spine poetry! I have no idea what this means but I am sure it‘s deep. 😂
You should have known
A separate peace
Each new day
The invasion of heaven
Far, far away
If you decide to do one of your own, please tag me! I really want to see. This is so much fun!
I enjoyed this collection more than her first collection. Divided into three parts Duet, Interlude, and Finale. I enjoyed Finale the most. I copies several passages from it. The other two sections we ok. I did not connect with them as much as the last. I will definitely read more of her work. Im glad I gave this one a try since I didn't just love her first collection of poetry. Maybe her writing gets better the more she does?
This P book by Lang Leav was great after The Crossover by Kwame Alexander. I wouldn't recommend this book to younger readers as much as middle grade and high schoolers because if the interwoven themes of heartbreak, loss, and death.
Here is a link to some very fun and creative activities to incorporate poetry into the classroom.
"I know you've lost someone and it hurts. You may have lost them suddenly, unexpectedly. Or perhaps you began losing pieces of them until one day, there was nothing left. You may have known them all your life or you may have barely known them at all. Either way, it is irrelevant—you cannot control the depth of a wound another inflicts upon you.

This was the first Lang Leav book I ever read and I loved it. I've been wanting to read her poetry for a while since I am such a fan of her boyfriend's (Michael Faudet) poetry.
This collection is absolutely beautiful. I loved how it was broken up into three parts and the story it told.
Overall, I just adored this collection and will definitely be reading more from her.
Read this beauty at the lake today.
I absolutely adored this book of poetry by #LangLeav, I really felt that I could connect with each poem that I read. I'm not usually a massive fan of poetry but I have ready all of her poetry books and I have to admit I'm a massive poetry fan now. I'm sorry I've been MIA recently guys, I've been suffering with sunstroke & I've barely just been able to get to work! #bookworm #booklover #booknerd #bookaholic #bookish #bookishgirl #booklove
Sometimes it is just nice to see yourself reflected back on the pages in front of you. That's what these poems feel like. Heartbreak can be an isolating experience, but Leav finds a way to capture the hurt, the questions, and the nostalgia and wrap them all up in a lyrical bow.
