Sea of Strangers Reviews
[Nov 2018 edit]
As it turns out, the end of the year found me sad enough for Sea of Strangers. Sad for all the reasons, not just the right ones. And I enjoyed every masochistic moment of Leav's poetry.
Sea of Strangers is currently not working for me. Maybe I'm not sad enough, or maybe I'm too sad for all the wrong reasons. I cannot take the lose I feel from Leav's poetry right now.

-I really enjoyed this one and its one of my fav collections by her
-I thought it was a solid collection with lovely poems
-I really liked how this had a theme of the sea, the ocean and water
I have always loved Lang's poetry, ever since I can remember knowing it existed. I used to read her work over and over as a teen, getting lost in how emotive and haunting it was. When I saw that she was releasing a new collection, I couldn't wait to read it, and was so grateful to get my hands on it. She's been sitting on some of this work for a decade, but man, was it worth the wait.

Love as though you have never been hurt or betrayed.
Let go of the ones who
Some of these were pretty good poems, and I even wrote down as some to reference at future dates. Overall though, again, not overly impressed with the modern style of poetry so WHY DO I KEEP DOING THIS TO MYSELF.
Spread your wings—now is the time,
to dare, to dream, to reach for the sky.
This is the moment you will soar;
if you want it now—you can have it all.
Others will look upon your grace,
and their bitter hearts will cry in spite;
the best parts of you—they’ll try to take,
to dim the brilliance of your light.
And as your tender courage wanes,
something whispers to you—wait!
Look them in the eye and say—not today,
I will not let you guide my fate.
This is not the day when you’ll conced ...more

Thank you Andrews McMeel Publishing for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Finished my first book for 2018. In Lang Leav's new poetry collection, Sea of Strangers is about love, breakups and healing. These topics are common from her previous collections and delivers each prose with emotions. Gladly she explores inspirational and empowering poems. It's refreshing and I like it. Overall, this is good but cliché (Especially about breakups. Majority of them are monotonous)
I've been reading through this for about 2 weeks and just now finishing it. This is my second book read by this author and she's just not for me
