    Jan 01, 2019

    I've already read all the works of Lang Leav, from her poetry books to her very first novel. In her last published book, Sea of Strangers, I mentioned that it is the best anthology she has written but with this new release, I think it might have surpassed the aforementioned because...

    And if ever you find my name slipping from your memory, I can promise you, by the time this year is through, you will never forget it again. Lang Leav was my first contemporary poetry love, and no matter how many collections she releases, I genuinely don't believe I'll ever stop ado...

    I?m such a huge fan of Lang Leav so when I saw this book, I just had to buy it! I always love how organized Lang?s collections are. She knows how to come up with with an overarching theme and how to follow it. She never tries too hard to make her poems fit into the theme. That ...

    This came to me at an important time in my life. Everything is a mess, and my mind is so loud that it's hard to breath. Lang's collection matched all my thoughts and emotions. Love and longing, loss and emptiness. A Long Time Ago Everything feels sentimental these days, every s...

    The writing seems lazy, repetitive and somewhat monotonous. I loved her previous books much more than this one. I know it feels inappropriate to compare but as this book is written on similar lines I felt the need to compare. Well, the lines are not gripping or not that interesting...

    Mini review: DNF Trigger warning: None up till the point I read. I received this E-ARC via the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I?ve heard about Leav?s poetry collections. Most people rave about them. Having come across a review with some quotes...

    ARC kindly provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review It's a decent poetry collection about all kinds of love. It's slightly better than the author's other collection but it lacked an emotional impact. However, there are a few standouts like: Vultures, What You Wish ...

    Love Looks Pretty on You came to me as a surprise, this is better than her earlier works. I tried her poetry books it?s a tricky relationship but with her novel, phew, that blew my socks off. What I noticed as a whole is that it felt a bit detached, it lacks the emotion mostly pre...

    "I have buried myself so deep in my words that sometimes I don't know if I am the person writing or hiding between the lines" I really enjoyed this collection! I had my eyes on Lang Leav collections for a while, but never picked them up because modern poetry are hit or miss for me. ...

    Read the full review at Elgee Writes I am sure Lang Leav is no stranger to any of us. And in her sixth book she has brought her magic back. I kept underlining her and highlighting so many of her lines, especially the ones about abuse in relationships and being a strong woman. Wh...

    Good lord, Lang Leav has a way with words. I first fell in love with her work when I read came across some poems on Pinterest that were from her Memories collection. UH-MAZING. Her poetry is relatable, passionate, stimulating and thought-provoking. It just doesn't disappoint. ...

    thank you netgalley for providing me with this arc in exchange for an, ahem, honest review i don't know why i thought leav would've changed. why would she change when the old garbage has worked out so well for her? still, i found myself downloading this book from netgalley just to s...

    This is cute! "Why do you take it so personally when she contradicts the version of herself that exists only in your head?" Things I like: Leav doesn't stick to one style of poetry. Some feel so modern and some rhyme and feel more antiquated and some are more like prose and so ...

    It was a lovely read, it's the first book I read from this author but I'll probably read more. "I don't know why I am like this. People ask me why I can't do anything without jumping through a thousand thoughts, like hoops. But sometimes I wonder if my inability to funct...

    The ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 3.5 stars This was not my first Lang Leav's book, I think I read all her previous poetry collections before this. Every time it's a nice surprise to find some of myself in her wor...

    "In the wrong hands, your past is a weapon." --- To be honest, I haven't read much poetry before, but I've heard a lot about Lang Leav, so I wanted to give this work a try. The prose itself was beautiful and her prose and poetry on misogyny was well done, but overall I thought it was...

    Full review (available from 26th Jan, 2019): http://swiftcoffee.blog/2019/01/26/lo... This collection of poems was exactly what I expected it to be: a quick, easy read that filled my soul and calmed my brain. What to call this book? Poetry, guide, reminiscence? Some poems were pa...

    3.5 stars I really liked this poetry collection, it was tender and very touching. I adored the themes in this one, how falling in love was represented here. It's probably my favorite book from Lang Leav after Love & Misadventures, it restored my faith in the author and her writ...

    Original review This book was provided by the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Andrews McMeel Publishing and Netgalley! Don?t stay where you are needed. Go where you are loved. Love Looks Pretty on You is a poetry collection about lo...

    This book is a gift so I'm glad I waited until I was in the right mood to receive it. I found a kindred spirit in the words and was left with a feeling of hope and validation. The title, Love Looks Pretty on You, captures the essence of the book. It was distinctly feminine without any ...

    My first Lang Leav, and I must say I'm disappointed. This reads more like diary entries or a collection of personal thoughts. The problem is, they don't evoke any feeling nor rich in imagery. They are not deep, nor they trigger me into some deep contemplation. Most of them are flat and...

    My first (and definitely not my last) of Lang Leav?s poetry- this was a breath of fresh air and just what I needed today! Light yet emotionally deep, I loved this collection and cannot wait to order my next Leav poetry collection. Thank you so much to Netgalley, Andrew McMeel ...

    this collection is quite different than most of her other books because most of the poems focused on self-love and self-growth. at this point, i don't think her writings are my cups of tea at all but i totally get it why a lot of readers might enjoy them (to each of their own eh?) ...

    "What is the part of you that you can't stand? How do you hide it and who are you most afraid will find out?" Love Looks Pretty On You is the 7th book by Lang Leav. It is a mix collection of poetry and prose. Some are one liner, some are written in one paragraph and most are contemp...

    This poetry collection made me feel good. About myself, about love and life. After I finished, I just felt calm and happy. There were some really strong pieces which made my heart either skip a beat or beating with so much love. I found myself in some of them. It felt more as a cla...

    Lang Leav is definitely not for me. I read all of her poetry books and this is the worst book. I tried to feel the emotions but I couldn?t do it. Some pages are filled with only two sentences. You?re wasting those precious papers!! Nevertheless, there?re some of the poems...

    Not as good as Sea of Strangers imo. I found this collection to be somewhat lacking - most come across as incomplete thoughts and rough drafts of poems and lack a punch. Leav does have a good way with words as there were several lines I highlighted but as poems they don?t work as wel...

    DNF. GIVE ME BACK THE 10 MINUTES I WASTED READING THIS ATROCITY. Imagine wasting all those precious papers (224 PAGES!!!) just to write 50 words max on each side, compile them all together, and call it poetry. When writing something like this; don't call it POETRY. Call it writi...

    I think this is the universe's way of telling me that Lang Leav and I need to part ways, it's been great but her work has gone from profound to generic Hallmark card statements. There's better poetry to be read, the end. ...

    Love Looks Pretty on You came to me as a surprise, this is better than her earlier works. I tried her poetry books it?s a tricky relationship but with her novel, phew, that blew my socks off. What I noticed as a whole is that it felt a bit detached, it lacks the emotion mostly pre...

    My first Lang Leav, and I must say I'm disappointed. This reads more like diary entries or a collection of personal thoughts. The problem is, they don't evoke any feeling nor rich in imagery. They are not deep, nor they trigger me into some deep contemplation. Most of them are flat and...

    My first (and definitely not my last) of Lang Leav?s poetry- this was a breath of fresh air and just what I needed today! Light yet emotionally deep, I loved this collection and cannot wait to order my next Leav poetry collection. Thank you so much to Netgalley, Andrew McMeel ...

    this collection is quite different than most of her other books because most of the poems focused on self-love and self-growth. at this point, i don't think her writings are my cups of tea at all but i totally get it why a lot of readers might enjoy them (to each of their own eh?) ...

    "What is the part of you that you can't stand? How do you hide it and who are you most afraid will find out?" Love Looks Pretty On You is the 7th book by Lang Leav. It is a mix collection of poetry and prose. Some are one liner, some are written in one paragraph and most are contemp...

    This poetry collection made me feel good. About myself, about love and life. After I finished, I just felt calm and happy. There were some really strong pieces which made my heart either skip a beat or beating with so much love. I found myself in some of them. It felt more as a cla...

    Lang Leav is definitely not for me. I read all of her poetry books and this is the worst book. I tried to feel the emotions but I couldn?t do it. Some pages are filled with only two sentences. You?re wasting those precious papers!! Nevertheless, there?re some of the poems...

    Not as good as Sea of Strangers imo. I found this collection to be somewhat lacking - most come across as incomplete thoughts and rough drafts of poems and lack a punch. Leav does have a good way with words as there were several lines I highlighted but as poems they don?t work as wel...

    DNF. GIVE ME BACK THE 10 MINUTES I WASTED READING THIS ATROCITY. Imagine wasting all those precious papers (224 PAGES!!!) just to write 50 words max on each side, compile them all together, and call it poetry. When writing something like this; don't call it POETRY. Call it writi...

    And if ever you find my name slipping from your memory, I can promise you, by the time this year is through, you will never forget it again. Lang Leav was my first contemporary poetry love, and no matter how many collections she releases, I genuinely don't believe I'll ever stop ado...

    I?m such a huge fan of Lang Leav so when I saw this book, I just had to buy it! I always love how organized Lang?s collections are. She knows how to come up with with an overarching theme and how to follow it. She never tries too hard to make her poems fit into the theme. That ...

    This came to me at an important time in my life. Everything is a mess, and my mind is so loud that it's hard to breath. Lang's collection matched all my thoughts and emotions. Love and longing, loss and emptiness. A Long Time Ago Everything feels sentimental these days, every s...

    The writing seems lazy, repetitive and somewhat monotonous. I loved her previous books much more than this one. I know it feels inappropriate to compare but as this book is written on similar lines I felt the need to compare. Well, the lines are not gripping or not that interesting...

    Mini review: DNF Trigger warning: None up till the point I read. I received this E-ARC via the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I?ve heard about Leav?s poetry collections. Most people rave about them. Having come across a review with some quotes...

    ARC kindly provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review It's a decent poetry collection about all kinds of love. It's slightly better than the author's other collection but it lacked an emotional impact. However, there are a few standouts like: Vultures, What You Wish ...

    Love Looks Pretty on You came to me as a surprise, this is better than her earlier works. I tried her poetry books it?s a tricky relationship but with her novel, phew, that blew my socks off. What I noticed as a whole is that it felt a bit detached, it lacks the emotion mostly pre...

    "I have buried myself so deep in my words that sometimes I don't know if I am the person writing or hiding between the lines" I really enjoyed this collection! I had my eyes on Lang Leav collections for a while, but never picked them up because modern poetry are hit or miss for me. ...

    Read the full review at Elgee Writes I am sure Lang Leav is no stranger to any of us. And in her sixth book she has brought her magic back. I kept underlining her and highlighting so many of her lines, especially the ones about abuse in relationships and being a strong woman. Wh...

    Good lord, Lang Leav has a way with words. I first fell in love with her work when I read came across some poems on Pinterest that were from her Memories collection. UH-MAZING. Her poetry is relatable, passionate, stimulating and thought-provoking. It just doesn't disappoint. ...

    thank you netgalley for providing me with this arc in exchange for an, ahem, honest review i don't know why i thought leav would've changed. why would she change when the old garbage has worked out so well for her? still, i found myself downloading this book from netgalley just to s...

    This is cute! "Why do you take it so personally when she contradicts the version of herself that exists only in your head?" Things I like: Leav doesn't stick to one style of poetry. Some feel so modern and some rhyme and feel more antiquated and some are more like prose and so ...

    It was a lovely read, it's the first book I read from this author but I'll probably read more. "I don't know why I am like this. People ask me why I can't do anything without jumping through a thousand thoughts, like hoops. But sometimes I wonder if my inability to funct...

    Love Looks Pretty on You by Lang Leav 4.75 stars ?She felt a surge of joy that warmed her so unexpectedly, so completely?it was as though it had been waiting for her all this time. Waiting among the flowers.? Lang Leav is a famous name that is synonymous with modern poe...

    The ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 3.5 stars This was not my first Lang Leav's book, I think I read all her previous poetry collections before this. Every time it's a nice surprise to find some of myself in her wor...

    My first Lang Leav, and I must say I'm disappointed. This reads more like diary entries or a collection of personal thoughts. The problem is, they don't evoke any feeling nor rich in imagery. They are not deep, nor they trigger me into some deep contemplation. Most of them are flat and...

    My first (and definitely not my last) of Lang Leav?s poetry- this was a breath of fresh air and just what I needed today! Light yet emotionally deep, I loved this collection and cannot wait to order my next Leav poetry collection. Thank you so much to Netgalley, Andrew McMeel ...

    this collection is quite different than most of her other books because most of the poems focused on self-love and self-growth. at this point, i don't think her writings are my cups of tea at all but i totally get it why a lot of readers might enjoy them (to each of their own eh?) ...

    "What is the part of you that you can't stand? How do you hide it and who are you most afraid will find out?" Love Looks Pretty On You is the 7th book by Lang Leav. It is a mix collection of poetry and prose. Some are one liner, some are written in one paragraph and most are contemp...

    This poetry collection made me feel good. About myself, about love and life. After I finished, I just felt calm and happy. There were some really strong pieces which made my heart either skip a beat or beating with so much love. I found myself in some of them. It felt more as a cla...

    Lang Leav is definitely not for me. I read all of her poetry books and this is the worst book. I tried to feel the emotions but I couldn?t do it. Some pages are filled with only two sentences. You?re wasting those precious papers!! Nevertheless, there?re some of the poems...

    And if ever you find my name slipping from your memory, I can promise you, by the time this year is through, you will never forget it again. Lang Leav was my first contemporary poetry love, and no matter how many collections she releases, I genuinely don't believe I'll ever stop ado...

    I?m such a huge fan of Lang Leav so when I saw this book, I just had to buy it! I always love how organized Lang?s collections are. She knows how to come up with with an overarching theme and how to follow it. She never tries too hard to make her poems fit into the theme. That ...

    This came to me at an important time in my life. Everything is a mess, and my mind is so loud that it's hard to breath. Lang's collection matched all my thoughts and emotions. Love and longing, loss and emptiness. A Long Time Ago Everything feels sentimental these days, every s...

    The writing seems lazy, repetitive and somewhat monotonous. I loved her previous books much more than this one. I know it feels inappropriate to compare but as this book is written on similar lines I felt the need to compare. Well, the lines are not gripping or not that interesting...

    Love Looks Pretty on You came to me as a surprise, this is better than her earlier works. I tried her poetry books it?s a tricky relationship but with her novel, phew, that blew my socks off. What I noticed as a whole is that it felt a bit detached, it lacks the emotion mostly pre...

    "I have buried myself so deep in my words that sometimes I don't know if I am the person writing or hiding between the lines" I really enjoyed this collection! I had my eyes on Lang Leav collections for a while, but never picked them up because modern poetry are hit or miss for me. ...

    Read the full review at Elgee Writes I am sure Lang Leav is no stranger to any of us. And in her sixth book she has brought her magic back. I kept underlining her and highlighting so many of her lines, especially the ones about abuse in relationships and being a strong woman. Wh...

    Good lord, Lang Leav has a way with words. I first fell in love with her work when I read came across some poems on Pinterest that were from her Memories collection. UH-MAZING. Her poetry is relatable, passionate, stimulating and thought-provoking. It just doesn't disappoint. ...

    This is cute! "Why do you take it so personally when she contradicts the version of herself that exists only in your head?" Things I like: Leav doesn't stick to one style of poetry. Some feel so modern and some rhyme and feel more antiquated and some are more like prose and so ...

    It was a lovely read, it's the first book I read from this author but I'll probably read more. "I don't know why I am like this. People ask me why I can't do anything without jumping through a thousand thoughts, like hoops. But sometimes I wonder if my inability to funct...

    My first Lang Leav, and I must say I'm disappointed. This reads more like diary entries or a collection of personal thoughts. The problem is, they don't evoke any feeling nor rich in imagery. They are not deep, nor they trigger me into some deep contemplation. Most of them are flat and...

    My first (and definitely not my last) of Lang Leav?s poetry- this was a breath of fresh air and just what I needed today! Light yet emotionally deep, I loved this collection and cannot wait to order my next Leav poetry collection. Thank you so much to Netgalley, Andrew McMeel ...

    this collection is quite different than most of her other books because most of the poems focused on self-love and self-growth. at this point, i don't think her writings are my cups of tea at all but i totally get it why a lot of readers might enjoy them (to each of their own eh?) ...

    Not as good as Sea of Strangers imo. I found this collection to be somewhat lacking - most come across as incomplete thoughts and rough drafts of poems and lack a punch. Leav does have a good way with words as there were several lines I highlighted but as poems they don?t work as wel...

    Good lord, Lang Leav has a way with words. I first fell in love with her work when I read came across some poems on Pinterest that were from her Memories collection. UH-MAZING. Her poetry is relatable, passionate, stimulating and thought-provoking. It just doesn't disappoint. ...

    thank you netgalley for providing me with this arc in exchange for an, ahem, honest review i don't know why i thought leav would've changed. why would she change when the old garbage has worked out so well for her? still, i found myself downloading this book from netgalley just to s...

    This is cute! "Why do you take it so personally when she contradicts the version of herself that exists only in your head?" Things I like: Leav doesn't stick to one style of poetry. Some feel so modern and some rhyme and feel more antiquated and some are more like prose and so ...

    It was a lovely read, it's the first book I read from this author but I'll probably read more. "I don't know why I am like this. People ask me why I can't do anything without jumping through a thousand thoughts, like hoops. But sometimes I wonder if my inability to funct...

    Love Looks Pretty on You by Lang Leav 4.75 stars ?She felt a surge of joy that warmed her so unexpectedly, so completely?it was as though it had been waiting for her all this time. Waiting among the flowers.? Lang Leav is a famous name that is synonymous with modern poe...

    The ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 3.5 stars This was not my first Lang Leav's book, I think I read all her previous poetry collections before this. Every time it's a nice surprise to find some of myself in her wor...

    "In the wrong hands, your past is a weapon." --- To be honest, I haven't read much poetry before, but I've heard a lot about Lang Leav, so I wanted to give this work a try. The prose itself was beautiful and her prose and poetry on misogyny was well done, but overall I thought it was...

    Full review (available from 26th Jan, 2019): http://swiftcoffee.blog/2019/01/26/lo... This collection of poems was exactly what I expected it to be: a quick, easy read that filled my soul and calmed my brain. What to call this book? Poetry, guide, reminiscence? Some poems were pa...

    3.5 stars I really liked this poetry collection, it was tender and very touching. I adored the themes in this one, how falling in love was represented here. It's probably my favorite book from Lang Leav after Love & Misadventures, it restored my faith in the author and her writ...

    Original review This book was provided by the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Andrews McMeel Publishing and Netgalley! Don?t stay where you are needed. Go where you are loved. Love Looks Pretty on You is a poetry collection about lo...

    This book is a gift so I'm glad I waited until I was in the right mood to receive it. I found a kindred spirit in the words and was left with a feeling of hope and validation. The title, Love Looks Pretty on You, captures the essence of the book. It was distinctly feminine without any ...

    My first Lang Leav, and I must say I'm disappointed. This reads more like diary entries or a collection of personal thoughts. The problem is, they don't evoke any feeling nor rich in imagery. They are not deep, nor they trigger me into some deep contemplation. Most of them are flat and...
