I'm not really a poetry kind of person. I'm going to have to pass on this one. It's just not something I'm interested in.

"The collection contains an urge from the poet to the reader to step into the unknown and go after their dreams fiercely without restraint or regret."
This sounds like a self improvement book but in poetry form. I loved your review. I've never read poetry but I think I want to give this a try!

I agree with the author that we should live our lives on our own terms rather than getting blinded by the dazzling portrayals of other's lives on social media. Thanks for the review!

I love the themes of this collection and some of the issues presented. I think a lot of readers would easily relate to the points the author is making with her poetry. I am just not a fan of poetry at all. It seems like no matter how well written, no poet has been able to change my mind on that. Wonderful review though.

I look forward to real poetry expressing her deepest yearnings in relationship to how others want to define her. I think everyone deals with this situation and has to be true to themselves.

A good collection of poems with great themes. A book the young adults will like to read. Good review.

Your review is as enlightening as the sample I just read, EmunahAn. The themes touched in the poems are definitely impelling, nudging you to look within your soul, at the same time to expand your perspective in the outside world.

An impressive review obviously motivated by a seemingly impressive read. This also looks like a serious novel dealing with serious themes that affect daily living. This book also hints at optism which I hope it delivers on. Congrats to the author on #BOTD

It appears like this book is a collection of poems pertaining to poet Faulder's life, in which the poet is a victim of separatism. Moreover this book also warns the readers about unhealthy relations with the social media in poetic form. It seems this is a well written book with humorous images inside it, which gives a lot of fun while reading it.

life is only knowing the unknown, we can do this by reading books easily- I believe this is my own quote. If someone quoted this before I am glad to know.

Totally not my genre, never liked poetry in any shape and form. Congratulations on the BOTD and sorry I won't read it.
