Amazon Synopsis: The journey from love to heartbreak to finding love again is personal yet universal. Lang Leav's evocative love poetry speaks to the soul of anyone who is on this journey.  Leav has an unnerving ability to see inside the hearts and minds of her readers. Her talent for translating complex emotions with astonishing simplicity has won her a cult following of devoted modern poetry fans from all over the world. Forget the dainty, delicate love poems of yore; these little poems pack a mighty punch.

Lang Leav is someone that I have constantly seen at Barnes and Noble and on Amazon as an author that I need to read. Lang Leav wrote a series of poetry called Anthology of Love which includes the titles Love & MisadventureLullabies, and The Universe of Us. I decided to read Long & Misadventure to see what this author had to offer.

My favorite poem: Art & Books

“Without a doubt,

I must read,

all the books

I’ve read about.

See the artworks

hung on hooks,

that I have only,

seen in books.”

My thoughts:

Love & Misadventure By Lang Leav is a collection of poetry about love, heartbreak and the inner thoughts of being smitten with someone. Leav spoke about her experiences of being in love and what that feels like at the beginning and ending of a relationship. The poetry is short and has a rhyming and young adult tone. The poetry is something that I compare to a teenager writing about their first experience of love and presented it to the world.

I personally did not enjoy this type of poetry because of the language, length of the poetry and the writing style. The poetry spoke in a juvenile manner and gave me that “first time being in love” idea of love which is not something that I connected to. I think that this poetry book could be relatable to young adults and teenagers because of the writing style of the poetry.

The poetry did stay in the theme of the book by speaking about love and heartbreak in most of the book but had a few poems that were on other subjects. There was a handful of poetry that I did enjoy where she was able to grab my attention and give me clever stanzas. But, overall, this poetry book did not connect to me as a reader.
