  • Maggie Gordon
    .........What the hell did I just read, and who picked this rotten piece of tripe up and put it on the best seller wall? How in the hell did this dude get a book contract? I mean, other than the slow downward spiral of modern book publishing always looking for a viral hit...Love Her Wild, is "Instagram poetry" which means it is short and insipid (the short part being the only good thing about this book). Admittedly, Instagram poetry doesn't have ...

    2 what-in-the-Hoobastank-did-I-just-read stars.I understand the commotion surrounding Atticus, I really do. He's young, drives the ladies/fellas crazy, wears a mask (oh, so mysterious), and to top it all off, he was praised by a Victoria Secret model. I'd say he has collectively created a unique brand for himself. That being said, to give this anything more than 2.5 stars would be misleading because the above-mentioned has nothing to do with the ...

    this book isn’t horrible. it was quick and fun, light and easy. but every poem was just sooo short and seemed overly simplified. there were a handful of clever ones, but the majority of these just read like sentences in a greeting card or really dated, cheesy sayings. i really only enjoyed the last section that was about going out and living your best life, because the previous sections about romance were just so cliché and corny.however, the ...

    With all of the creepers and perverts being featured on the news these days, it was breathtaking and awe-inspiring to find this new collection of poetry by a man named Atticus, published just this year. I don't know who or what Atticus is, or if his mother was Hera, Athena or Aphrodite or what, but, clearly she was a goddess who did an incredible job of raising a righteous and creative young man. Atticus's poetry is a celebration of the feminine ...

    The poems in this collection are generic and unoriginal. It definitely lacks the substance. I enjoy reading modern poetry as long as it gives me the feels. Unfortunately, this one was a let down except for the photographs which I find stunning.
  • Erin
    I would not recommend this book, but be careful if you agree with me. I published a negative review on Amazon under my real name, and the author or one of his fans searched for my name in order to harass me on my personal account (ironically calling me a troll for having a negative opinion while using my real name, while they created fake Facebook accounts). Luckily they caused no lasting damage, but be aware that negative reviews of this book ma...

    Well, combining some cheesy phrases with some form of art (photography, in this case) seems to be the latest trend in poetry. Love Her Wild, is a compilation of short poems, divided into three parts -Love. Her. Wild. “Love is diving headfirst into someone else’s confusion and finding that it all makes sense.” And to think this crappy piece was nominated for Goodreads Choice Awards pretty much extinguishes my faith in the so-called people...

    This book is lovely! I went in with moderate expectations and was pleasantly surprised. The pictures in between and accompanying the poetry added a little extra magic to it. I'm already looking forward to rereading it on another quiet day.

    "She was afraid of heights, but she was much more afraid of never flying." I fucking loved this. I've been in the mood to read some poetry lately and I've heard nothing but good things about this poetry collection, so I decided to give it a go, and I am so impressed and stunned by how much I loved this. Sure, some of these poems are forgettable and pretentious and not that great, but there are so many amazing and gorgeous poems. I love that this ...
  • Jenny (Reading Envy)
    I follow Atticus Poetry in Instagram, because it's nice to come across a positive, loving thought in a nice font. Taken as a large group like this is, and listening to them, is just not the way they are meant to be consumed. In this format they don't feel like poems, but idealistic thoughts. I would classify them as greeting card poetry. And delivered in a bit of a Jack Handy voice, it lacks the sweetness of the graphical representation. Here's a...

    🌟 ”Chase your stars fool, life is short.” 🌟Sublime. What a stunning collection of poems. This book made feel like I was sitting on a beach, soft sand underfoot and a delightful sea breeze caressing my face. It’s such a sensual work. Combined with the photography, this is visually beautiful.Yes, the poems are short. But isn’t that the beauty of something like this, that a message can be conveyed so eloquently and yet so simply.This i...

    #sorryjako ale tohle je jedna z těch knih, která chcípne, když opustí Instagram. Zatímco ve feedu je to krátké zastavení nad nějakou mikroemocí a člověka to sem tam celkem baví, na stránkách je to soubor sloganů na něčí svatbu a občas jakž takž dobrý refrén do slaďáku. Navíc v češtině (popř. v tomto překladu) to zní strááášně trapně aneb „snažím se složit holce ve vedlejší lavici na kus papíru vytrh...

    *whispers* so bad that milk and honey read like a masterpiece.heteronormative through and through also some of the 'poems' were the one saying brushing a girl's hair behind her ear is better than any drugs. hmmm say what.then when he said depression is like being color blinded and everyone keeps telling how colorful is the world around you. are you sure boyto sum it up this is like john green for poetry and if you swing that way th...

    “LOVE COULD BE LABELEDPOISON AND WE’DDRINK IT ANYWAYS.” I really enjoyed this! I loved MOST of the poems and I also loved the photography! I tabbed so many quotes and thought that it was a wonderful collection that I would for sure recommend to others. You guys know that I read a lot of mental health novels and poetry. So if I see something I have to call it out, even though it seemed small this quote bothered me: “Brushing a girl’s h...

    okay, as a whole, i would NEVER recommend this. listen to me. there are some good poems here, but there is just so much trash too. and the good parts aren't worth the trash. the parts that made me feel something were the handwritten ones - not only were some of the best, they felt meaningful and so i felt affected by them. and then. you see something like this:SometimesI want a quiet lifeother timesI want to goa little bitfucking Gatsby.i mean......

    Poetry's magic is that it is found when it's needed.Love Her Wild is full of short but nice poems that are complemented by pictures. Though not my favourite poetry book, it was still very enjoyable.
  • Glitterbomb
    This book is a collection of what I'm going to call "Modern Poetry". Think Milk and Honey, and others of that ilk. I feel this is more of a collection of meaningful phrases and sentiments rather than traditional poetry. In saying that, I did really enjoy this for what it is. The poems are beautiful, evocative and full of soul. The book itself is delightfully presented, being interspersed with gorgeous, moody, photography among the sentiments, whi...
  • Alison
    Honestly don't know why I keep doing this to myself. I know I don't like modern poetry, but damn does the aesthetic of these collections get me every time. Every time I pick up one of these collections, it's like reading tumblr posts that have been regurgitated over and over again. None of it seems all that original or was all that inspiring. Plus, this collection had photography, but I don't wanna know how much they spent on StockPhoto because t...

    Myslím, že básníci minulých století se musí obracet v hrobech.Přátelé, Love Her Wild je blbost bez hloubky (jen věty rozdělené na několik řádků), děsí mě, co tato doba považuje za hezkou poezii.Edit: Ale vyjde to česky, tak je možné, ze tomu fakt nerozumím. :D

    The poetry was very meh, but I am 100% down with his aesthetic.

    I finished this in 20 minutes lol but i actually really liked it. I think i dog eared about 18 pages because i really liked those pieces, but overall i thought it was quite a nice collection. I loved the ones about love, they made me smile. I haven't read many poetry books written by a male writer, and to read this one, with so much appreciation and awe for the girl he loves, was just wonderful. None of the poems were sad or depressing, even if s...

    "Words will scratch more hearts than swords"This book turned up at my door, and I devoured it within an hour. This is a poetry collection that talks about love and loss and so often I related to what was read or something resonated with me and I ended up tabbing so many beautiful quotes. Besides the beautiful writing, there are black & white images to accompany the poems and this collection just feels really polished & well put togetherPRO's-so p...

    “There’s too much risk in loving,”the young boy said.“No,”said the old man,“there’s too much risk in not.” A nice collection of modern poetry accompanied by stunning photographs. I liked around half of the poems - mostly the ones about falling and being love. These were light, tender and made me feel something.The rest of them were mostly generic and unoriginal.I'd recommend it if you like modern poetry.

    This was so beautiful ! Some poems were very relatable and others just gripping and beautiful ! Definitely the best poetry book I've read so far ! “We let our livesmix with our dreamslike two colored paintsuntil we didn’t knowwhich was whatand we didn’t care."
  • Robin Bonne
    Short, adolescent Tumblr poems that are closer to platitudes. I listened to the audiobook, which was a brief 40 minutes, and it was an odd experience. The poems were cliché and should have stayed on the internet.
