    “In many ways, a book is, in itself, a tiny universe. Each page is like a newly formed galaxy, fashioned from a single, pulsing thought.A book travels for days, for years, sometimes for centuries to meet you at an exact point in time.”The above quote perfect describes my feelings about this book.This was my first Lang Leav poetry book, and I was truly not expecting to like this collection so much - mainly because I don’t consider myself to ...

    I received an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I find this better than Lullabies. Lang Leav's love poems are fascinating and beautifully written. Most of it are emotionally stirring and heartfelt. I must admit some of them are repetitive and a little boring. It's still a great go-to read.

    The Universe of Us is by far my favorite of Lang Leav's books. Maybe because I related to so many of the poems, but it's also so beautiful. I could see an overarching story amidst the smaller stories in each poem. So many emotions were expressed. One of the things I love about poetry is that it portrays so many feelings, and they're not necessarily examples of how to. I love seeing and relating to other people's raw emotions. This books felt the ...

    Review can also be found here.Rating: 0.5I love poetry. I love it, I admire it, and I adore the challenges it presents because writing good poetry is not easy. Once, I’ve been told that “poetry is a novel condensed into a page” and yes, I’m aware that there are poems spanning more than a singular page, but it doesn’t mean that the meaning this saying is trying to convey isn’t something you shouldn’t take into account either. In fact...

    “I believe we think more deeply about the universe when we're falling in love. I think the mysterious pull that draws you to another person is identical to the one that moves our eyes upward to the stars.” “In many ways, a book is, in itself, a tiny universe. Each page is like a newly formed galaxy, fashioned from a single, pulsing thought. A book travels for days, for years, sometimes for centuries to meet you at an exact point in time.”...

    The Universe of Us by Lang Lev is the poet's fourth collection of poetry. Lang is a recipient of The Qantas Spirit of Youth Award and was later granted a coveted Churchill Fellowship. Her fashion label Akina has achieved critical and commercial success, stocked in key boutiques around Australia and later in cutting edge Harajuku, Japan.I would have passed this collection by, but her mention in her partner's, Michael Faudet, book Pretty Dirty Thin...

    I have come to love reading poetry lately. In a matter of a few short sentences, poets can often evoke such vibrant feelings that paragraphs and essay cannot imitate in the least. Sometimes, we just need less words and more feeling. The Universe of Us, is a poetically breathtaking piece of work. It’s deep and thoughtful and strikingly passionate. In a series of different poetic forms, the author is able to take the reader on the endless j...
