I’ve decided to compact my reviews on the poetry books into one post mini review posts because they tend to be shorter reviews than the ones I do for novels, so it works easier to jot down a few lines for multiple poetry books and save some time and space.

Fierce Fairytales and Other Poems || Mini Reviews #minireviews #poetry #modernpoetry #poetryreviewTweet
Fierce Fairytales by Nikita Gill
Originally published: 2018
The collection is based on taking fairytales we all know and giving them a darker spin. Some of the pieces stood out but not enough to overshadow the repetitive ones. The last part of the collection was just bashful with no “fairytale” link to them and that resulted in my rating lowering for the book.
The book has a rating of 4.05 on GoodReads. I gave it a 3.

What We Buried by Caitlyn Siehl
Originally published: 2014
The first part of collection, the love and relationship pieces, was okay, I didn’t get an emotional movement from them. The second part focused more on feminism and was written tastefully without coming across as hateful, but instead enlightening. Some poems were good, and some were repetitive.
The book has a rating of 3.98 on GoodReads. I gave it a 3.
September Love by Lang Leav
Originally published: 2020
This is a sweet and simple guide to self-empowerment, heartbreak and love. It’s honest and raw, and sets a perfect atmosphere, shifting between hope and heartbreak. There wasn’t one piece I didn’t enjoy or didn’t find inspiring. A great read with plenty of impact.
The book has a rating of 3.71 on GoodReads. I gave it a 5.

Love Looks Pretty on You by Lang Leav
Born to Love, Cursed to Feel by Samantha King
Originally published: 2016
The title caught my attention. It make me think of R.H. Sin’s work with its own unique voice. There were so many relatable pieces, if not all, and it hit me with the emotional rawness and truth the author was going for. Simple and beautiful writing, with multiple themes that are relatable to a diverse crowd.
The book has a rating of 3.83 on GoodReads. I gave it a 5.
