Book Review:
Lullabies by Lang Leav

Title: Lullabies
Author: Lang Leav

Language: English
Pages: 248
Rating: 3/5


Summary:
Set to a musical theme, this is a collection of poetry about love and the loss of it.


Review:
I quite enjoyed this collection of poetry. I like how it goes from love to loss throughout the book.

I enjoyed the short poetry the most. I like poetry to have a more classical and rhythmic style and I like it when it rhymes. About half of the poetry in this collection is like that, and the other half has a more modern twist. I found it hard to find the rhythm in those poems. I also thought perhaps it could have been a bit shorter, and some bits cut out.

One of my favorites from this collection was Always With Me:

Your love I once surrendered,
has never left my mind.

Mu heart is just as tender,
as the day I called you mine.

I did not take you with me,
but you were never left behind.
page 111

Overall, I thought this was a good collection, and if you want to read some poetry about love with a mixture of styles, this is a good place to start.

  1. Have you read Lang Leav's first poetry collection? I did like this one, but the first one is still my favorite! I agree that short poems in general are usually the ones that catch my attention, and the quote you shared is beautiful :D

    1. I haven't read her first collection, but it's been on my radar! I actually wanted it, but it was out of stock when I went looking for it :D But I will read it at some point! :)
