Book Cover Comments

I think its a really beautiful B&W photo. The light shining onto the outline of the lady in the center of the cover really brings out the “Love”, “Her” and “Wild”.

The Actual Review

Having read this poetry literally five months ago, I barely have any recollection of this book. But what I do know is that this poetry book can be devoured in simply a couple of days, or even one day, unless you feel like taking multiple breaks like me in between.

The poem separates into three sections: Love, Her and Wild. The Love and Her sections are of course really similar since they are literally about the same topic, but they are set off by the difference between the pure descriptions of love and the concept of it, while “her” is about a very specific person. The fun thing with “Her” is that I always imagine myself being the “her”, and I get really sucked into it. The romantic and sweet language of both the “Love” and the “Her” just gives me a lot of feels and emotions, but what is followed on by it is completely different. The “Wild” goes on about the freedom and the adventures of life, different poems about growing up and the World surrounding you. I initially thought the book was going to be “Love Her Wild” instead of “Love”, “Her”, “Wild”, but any young person would definitely enjoy the feeling and the thoughts of setting your wings to fly with this poetry.

The other best part about this book, if you haven’t noticed its Instagram poetry, is the photos that come with it. These black and white photos within the book allow you to not only enjoy the word aspect, the layout, but also the message behind each and every photo that simply amplifies your emotion.

Definitely a good and simple read for any healing required, or when you need a fresh break from reading too many books, or if you simply want to read to slow down from your rushed everyday lives :)
