Review: Love Looks Pretty on You by Lang Leav

Lang Leav is not for me.

I read my first Lang Leav book, Love & Misadventure, when I was broken-hearted (ha ha) and I loved every bit of it. But looking back, I’m not even sure if I would still think the same way if I read it again. My standard for poetry has changed and Lang Leav is not enough for me anymore.

I tried to give it a chance. I really did. I tried to feel the emotions that the poems were supposed to convey. But I just couldn’t do it.

Pillow Thoughts Review: A Poem for Every Feeling

I believe poetry is a personal form of art that is subjective. It makes you feel things when it hits close to home. This book is no exception.

I found out about this book when I saw a post from a Twitter account I follow called Poems Porn. I read the last entry in the book entitled Looking for Ice Cream and I knew I needed to read more.

I wanted to like this more than I did. But for me, this is the kind of poetry that you either relate to or you don’t.

Review: I Wrote This For You

This is great to read when you’re feeling melancholic at 3 AM and can’t sleep.

I read this in one sitting. It was hard not to.

This would have been perfect if not for the pictures.

Some were creepy. Or just a blurry mess that you can’t make out. Not to mention the cover that looks something straight out of a horror movie.

Don’t get me wrong, though. There were still some good ones that give off the right vibe.

But the words, the words were something else. It makes you feel things. It makes you think. Which is where I found myself at 4 AM after reading the book, still unable to sleep and thinking about life while listening to indie music.
