Some books tend to stay with you in the most beautiful way and when you flip that last page, your heart is content, you are content and that sigh that has been resting on your lips finally escapes.
It took me longer than usual to get my hands on this book and three whole days to finish its 155 pages. Not because I’m a slow reader or that I didn’t have time on my hands. I wanted to imprint every word into my mind.
Poetry continues to remain a favourite of mine and Lang Leav doesn’t fail to deliver carefully worded, bittersweet and soulful poems in her book. Love & Misadventure is divided into three parts and I read a part per day.
Part 1: Misadventure
The poems range from putting yourself out there, entering the dating world, opening up your heart to someone and giving it your all.
Part 2: The Circus of Sorrows
The falling out of love, moving on, heartbreak and all the intricacies that play out at the end of a relationship fill this section.
Part 3: Love
The last part simply leaves the reader with hope and that is exactly how the book ends.
Like love, Lang Leav has artfully placed the poems to depict a roller coaster that one expects to go on. From all its ups and downs there is something left to be expected from the poems. Every word makes a place in the heart of the reader which Leav has the ability to see into.
This book has officially become my go-to travel companion.
