Goodreads Summary: Lang Leav is a poet and internationally exhibiting artist. Awarded a coveted Churchill Fellowship, her work expresses the intricacies of love and loss. Beautifully illustrated and thoughtfully conceived, Love and Misadventure will take you on a rollercoaster ride through an ill-fated love affair- from the initial butterflies to the soaring heights- through to the devastating plunge. Lang 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 fans from all over the world.
Thoughts: I’m a huge fan of poetry so naturally I had to get my own copy of this book. It certainly didn’t take me long to finish this collection, but I know I’ll be re-reading it. I’ve said this before, but I’ll say it again.. I want to think that everybody wants love in some form, aren’t we here on earth to create relationships with others? (Friendships, Significant others, family)
What I loved most about Leav’s writing was that it was simplistic. Sometimes that’s all you need. I’ll leave a list of a few of my favorite poems below. Poetry isn’t for everyone and that’s okay. If you haven’t read much to begin with, start with this.
- A Stranger
- Soul Mates
- A Betrayal
- All or Nothing
- A Time Capsule
- Sad Songs
- Sea of Strangers
- A Question
