I Saw You As A Flower by Ellen Everett {Book Review}

I’ve been a reading a lot of poetry this year. I haven’t read as much since I was in high school and we had to study poetry, and it was a lot more complicated than the modern poetry you find today.

Some poetry books I’ve read have been great, others not so much. This one started off pretty well but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I expected to.

Book Review: I Saw You As a Flower by Ellen Everett #bookreview #poetrycollection #modernpoetry #booktwitter

Originally published: 2018

Pages: 204
Format: E-book


The collection is split into three parts: a time to wither, a time to grow and a time to blossom.

My favourite part was the first one, a time to wither, as it came across very real and there were more relatable pieces to appreciate.

The collection starts heavy and ends on a lighter note. I would’ve envisioned it work the other way around, letting the last collection speak louder than the others.

Some of the pieces are written as saying, not so much as poems. Some were so clichéd, they made me wince.

I did enjoy how nature was entwined in everything and some of the metaphors were stunning, it was like looking into the garden of your soul.

My Rating:

The book has a rating of 3.82 on GoodReads. I gave it a 4.
