From the poems to the prose, Lang Leav is an incredible poet and I'll be reading anything she writes. If you haven't read anything by the author, I'd recommend to start with this book because, in my opinion, is her best work so far. Even if it's a collection with some new poems, Leav gave the best she could and she succeeded.
The poems here are so heartwarming and gets to the bottom of aching souls. It dawns on you slowly, like a warm winter sunrise -where the promise of summer shines out from within. View 2 comments. Aug 29, Maui Rochell rated it it was amazing Shelves: poetry , my-favorite-books , borrowed. I was about to leave the bookstore when I saw a copy of Memories. Being a fan of Lang Leav, of course I really wanted to read her latest work but the book is kinda expensive.
I read the book for about 30 minutes and left the bookstore filled with words and thoughts. Lang's words never fail to strike me. Feels like someone wrote a poetry for me of what I feel. Like when they ask me how do I feel? I would give them a copy of this book and tell them, read this and find out.
It is the source of great beauty in our lives, yet the cause of such heartache. It remains the bridge between our past and present — it gives weight and dimension to our very existence. Her prose was a bit closer to the lyrical poetry I prefer while still being modern poetry. So, naturally, I came to memories with this idea in mind. It wasn't exactly what I got. It still had some lyrical pieces, with their rhythm and simple beauty that move me by simply existing, but they were a clear minority.
Which was a disappointment, because, as I have already stated, I came looking for it precisely. It reminded, starkly, that poetry is all about emotionally connecting to the words written by the author.
To find some meaning in them and feel them deep inside you. It did that. It gave me something I was looking for. Not every poem was what I needed or what I was looking for, but there were a few that hit the mark square on.
Maybe not everything she writes, not every poem, but it does. I can't say that I have branched out and read a lot of modern poetry or anything but I have read some and though the writing styles differ I've found that they talk of vastly the same topics.
And I'm not saying that's bad just a little tiring maybe. Leav branches out more. Sure, she does speak of this "hot" topics but I've also found other themes. You carry their smile with you like a talisman — for whatever reason, their presence in your life will always bring the promise of better days. I don't regret it or anything. I'm just wondering what truly is Leav's style.
The first one I read or this one? Which I don't see as a terrible thing to do. The girl who served their drink, the person they pushed past on a crowded street, the one who broke their heart.
I have happened in so many places, to so many people — the essence of me lives on in the nuances, these moments. It did help me out when I most needed it, so, there is that.
So, when my tbr jar suggested me to read this one I jumped to the occasion. Furthermore, I think this is the first book from Lang Leav that I ever encountered on GR and that makes me really excited! I really liked her style from the previous of her [Leav's] books I read and, therefore, I have great expectations regarding this one. All that said, let's hope I can enjoy this. Starting off the book, I was really enjoying it. I found it emotionally touching and the writing to be not too complex, but not simple enough to assume Lang just scattered a bunch of words on it and called it "poetry", either.
Continuing the book however, I felt torn. All the poems started to blur together with the same message, of this tragic love, and the effect that I got on the first poems were just lost. Soon I grew a little bored, and only 3. Soon I grew a little bored, and only the few unique ones would stick out to me.
I wish I could have enjoyed this book more than I did, but I definitely didn't despise it. If you're a hopeless romantic, enjoy simple poetry, or a Milk and Honey fan, you'll definitely enjoy this book.
Jun 05, Mia Bakhthiar rated it it was amazing Shelves: read-withinhrs , pretty-covers , favourites , anticipated-releases , poetry. Heart-wrenchingly beautiful. Lang Leav has pretty much articulated what every girl has gone though into strings of stunning prose. Aug 23, Hizatul Akmah rated it it was ok Shelves: poetry.

For she is his poet and he is her poetry. Lang Leav still manages to linger in places I've forgotten or didn't know existed in parts of my life where they do, sort of like an old song I've never heard but with a familiar melancholic tune to it. Aug 15, Mohamed Ghazi rated it really liked it. I was disappointed when I read that this book has only few new poems and the content is a mix from her first and second book since I read both of them multiple times.
I only knew that after buying this book. But that doesn't belittle this book and the words inside it! Lang Leav has a way of writing that gives me collection of feelings that I hardly overcome. With every page I feel a new thing and remember a new story. I loved the prose more than the poems. A great collection. Of course , it did. Of course, it does. It was just an ending, they tell me, not the end. Hate to say this, but I'm disappointed I have read both of those other poetry collections so there wasn't much new content in here but I still really enjoyed all the poems a lot and decided to give this 4 stars for the overall enjoyment of the poems.
I personally am glad that I didn't buy all three of these collections but got them from the library because I didn't know beforehand that there would be repeat poems in this one.
I'd recommend going for this collections if you're looking to purchase just one of them! Your life spent sailing to my shores. The arms that yearn to someday hold me, will ache beneath the heavy oars.
Please take your time and take it slowly; as all you do will run its course. And nothing else can take what only - was always meant as solely yours. Dec 30, Yoda rated it it was amazing Shelves: on-the-shelf , read I will never dislike anything written by Lang Leav. This is a collection of her favorite poems from her other works. Jul 23, Michelle rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites , poetry. Another favourite poetry book of mine added to my bookshelves! I love Lang Leav's poetry so much and how she writes and the connection I feel with certain poems.
I only slightly wish there was more new poems in this, I had originally thought the whole book was new poems instead of some new poems and then former poems from her previous poetry books. But a lot of them were my favourite ones from those so I didn't mind! Blues Classical Country. Electronic Folk International. Jazz Latin New Age. Aggressive Bittersweet Druggy.
