    ‘you say im the girl who reads too much into everything - that i never see things as they are, only what they could be. so, can you blame me when i look at you and all i see is love.’ this is my first experience with LL, but definitely not my last. i appreciate how accessible the poetry style is. it feels very minimalist - modern and simple, yet artistically pleasing. i will admit i preferred the prose sections more than the verse, but only because it felt like they told a deeper story. overal ‘you say im the girl who reads too much into everything - that i never see things as they are, only what they could be. so, can you blame me when i look at you and all i see is love.’ this is my first experience with LL, but definitely not my last. i appreciate how accessible the poetry style is. it feels very minimalist - modern and simple, yet artistically pleasing. i will admit i preferred the prose sections more than the verse, but only because it felt like they told a deeper story. overall, this a lovely selection of reflections on love, life, and everything in between. thanks so much andrews mcmeel publishing for the ARC! ↠ 3.5 stars

    I have been reading Lang Leav's poetry collections for the past two years and yes, I will keep reading whatever she writes. So far, I feel this is one of her best collections. So far my second favourite collection. And so apt for the September 2020 even though the book is coming out in November 2020 and was compiled in 2019 which started with a poem with the same name of the book title published in one of her popular poetry collection two years ago.

And so apt for the September 2020 even though the book is coming out in November 2020 and was compiled in 2019 which started with a poem with the same name of the book title published in one of her popular poetry collection two years ago. The author focuses on relationships, writing; her past and the present; all the ridiculousness of the blame games directed to her because of her writing, her poems; and being an artist; seasons, love, loss, time and healing; being a woman and how life gets chaotic and how beliefs matter. I specifically liked reading 'After Thirty'. She talks about how she changed after being this particular age. And the most interesting poem for me is 'Ten Things'. It talks about only ten worldly possessions. That gave me lots to reflect on. But the best part is after reading all the musings, the lines, the poetry and the one liners, it gives me hope like it does for the author. I like the genuineness in the writing. It's heartfelt and personal. Learning to express one's own feelings and emotions through poetry and musings is one of my most favourites to read. However, I feel some parts get a bit too repetitive. Otherwise I totally love the collection. Thanks NetGalley for the ARC.

I have been dipping more into the genre lately just because it’s quick, and it’s easy, and it makes you feel something (hopefully). I was so surprised when I found this beautiful little treasure! The forward by Lili Reinhart was a nice touch, but the real prize here is (shocker) THE POETRY. I loved everything about this collection of poems. It was raw, honest, and so freaking empowering. And while there is still a glimmer of hope behind those sad, tired eyes, know he hasn’t worn you down. And while there is an ounce of fight left in you, know he hasn’t won just yet. And while there is a chance in hell you get out of this, you come out swinging. I love a good inspirational quote. And luckily, this book is full of them. Also, Give You when I read it for the first time gave me such a visceral image, as well. It officially made it onto the list of my Favorite Poems ever. Yeah, there’s a list 😂 I would have included it in this review, but it’s a chunker. It’s just such a beautiful book overall. Read this if you want All the Feels! Big thank you to Netgalley + Andrew McMeel Publishing for sending me a review copy of this book! *Note: Any quotes referenced in this review, may or may not be subject to change in the finished copy of the book.

    The ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Lang Leav's poetry collection can be a hit or miss for me and this one here didn't unfortunately meet my taste. I was expecting a lot more from these poems, but I really could not connect with most of them. Also, I believe that the same themes were used over and over again which is something I didn't particularly enjoy.

    I have read 3 of her poetry books before. I do agreed with "nobody writes like her. she could form poems flawlessly". But the thing is, in my honest opinion, its too self-centred and it feels like she's criticising her readers 😅 There's no sequences to these poems & prose. On the bright side, despite all those, some of the pieces are beautifully created. I have read 3 of her poetry books before.

It's like you open the box on the kitchen top, thanking your brother internally to be generous enough to leave you a piece of apple pie and it turns out to be a whole chocolate truffle cake! Coming to this bittersweet treat—I can already say I’m going to read this again sometime. I finished the book and went back to the first poem immediately because it was a masterpiece. I tried to list my favorite pieces but soon realized it’ll be better if I just add the whole book to favorites. If you’ve read Leav before, expect the usual flow and style here. She addresses several themes like love, heartache and grief, womanhood, self-empowerment, self-love which she has always voiced through her poems. What was new (and my favorite parts) was the way she wrote so beautifully and poignantly about being an artist, her inspirations, and the burden of acceptance or criticism her work carries. There were so many pieces that had me just stop and take a breath- not because she says something no one has ever said or felt, but because she plucks the most mundane, alluvial thoughts and gives them a home on a paper. Also, shoutout to Lili Reinhart for that amazing foreword! Thanks to NetGalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing for this eARC in exchange for an honest review!

    I received an advance reader copy of this book to read in exchange for an honest review via netgalley and the publishers. September love is a beautiful collection of poetry that really resonated and connected with me and I loved every page. There were a few poems especially that felt that I could have been the person they were written about they were so in tune with a time in my past. This is the first poetry collection I have read by Lang Leav but it won't be the last!

    I've been hearing about Lang Leav for so long. In fact, I can't even scroll through my bookstagram feed without seeing a book from her. I am both happy and sad with that fact. Of course, I am all for success when it comes to authors/poets, they deserve it as long as they're working for it legally and without being problematic. However, I am sad that this is what most of people thinks as "extraordinary" poetry. I understand, poetry CAN BE subjective.

However, I am sad that this is what most of people thinks as "extraordinary" poetry. I understand, poetry CAN BE subjective. So let me stop you right there and inform you now— I am reviewing this poetry book from both aspects which is what I always do when it comes to poems: subjective preference and objective quality. Of course I am not diminishing any personal experience and feelings of Lang Leav, she has the right to express them. But what I'm saying is, there are certain craft elements to consider that I sadly didn't see here in this book. This whole collection isn't entirely bad, however, there's more "bad" than "good". The theme of the whole collection? Nothing. It's like a bunch of poems saved via bookmark, dumped in one pile and someone decided to make it a "poetry book". What stood out for me is the foreword of Lili Reinhart and probably 2-3 one liners. I gave this a try because I remember reading her first poetry book and didn't like it. So I was hoping for this collection to change my mind. However, this book gave me a different effect, I just decided to stay away from Lang Leav any works at all. For my recommendations, try Warsan Shire, Sarah Kay and Dawn Lanuza!

    Perfectly adequate conversational poems centered around relationships starting and ending, poems being written and forgotten. Don't think I'll look for more of Leav's work, but there wasn't much that was off-putting either. Probably my lukewarm favorite of the bunch was 'A Poem Comes': This was a poem that came to me the way anything good comes Like a comet that swings back around or a recipe you reconstruct from a childhood memory The lens with which you peer through all blurred and sentimental It cam Perfectly adequate conversational poems centered around relationships starting and ending, poems being written and forgotten.

Lang is quite easily my favorite modern poet — in fact, I'd only rank her second to Poe as my favorite poet of all time — and historically speaking, her words have always cut right to the core of me. While this wasn't my favorite collection of hers, it still held true to that record: something about her words always exposes something in me that leaves me feeling incredibly understood, and it's a beautiful yet sobering feeling. Whether you come to Lang's work looking for feminist commentary, expressions of love and yearning, or the quiet, endless ache of someone who's been truly heartbroken, she never disappoints. ♥ Thank you so much to the publisher for providing me with this review copy in exchange for an honest review!

    Meep. I am sad. For the most part, I enjoy Lang Leav's poetry. But after reading this collection, it just left me feeling meh. The poems felt like they were sucking life out of me, giving some back, then sucking it out again. I was left feeling drained and irritated. Like that feeling after you've just done 5 loads of laundry and the machine ruined your favourite shirt in the last load. Look, LL is such a talented poet, but this collection felt very average compared to her other work. This colle Meep. I am sad. For the most part, I enjoy Lang Leav's poetry.

I was left feeling drained and irritated. Like that feeling after you've just done 5 loads of laundry and the machine ruined your favourite shirt in the last load. Look, LL is such a talented poet, but this collection felt very average compared to her other work. This collection was a combination of stimulating poems and unnecessary Facebook-like drama: Exhibit A (Facebook dramalama): To the Guy Who Claims My Poetry Was the Cause of His Break-Up "It is astonishing to think that my words have the power to make someone fall out of love with you. That I have somehow been conspiring against you, even though up until this moment, I was blissfully unaware of our existence. Maybe you should ask yourself why she has found her self-worth in the words of others and not yours. Could it be, perhaps, that I'm not some grand puppet master like you believe, that my words are not a cold hard slap, but merely, a soft tap on the shoulder and the truth is--you're just a shitty boyfriend" (Tbh, this^ "poem" or whatever the heck that was, was weird. Who cares what some random DUDE claims you caused. I mean, is he some random? As an outsider, I have no context, no idea if you know him or if he's a stranger. So, he's shitty for blaming you and you're just as bad - if you don't know him - to say overall he's a shitty BF, especially if you don't know what happened in their relationship. Also, if "he" were a "she", would you have published that they're a shitty girlfriend? I felt an ulterior motive with this poem, and I just didn't care for it. ) Exhibit B (probably my fav from this collection): A Woman "The day you become a woman, they hand you a grenade. And you must choose between hurling or holding. Between want and expectations. Excise your desire, while you are hungry for everything. Give up your life for a version of you that isn't you at all. Do not think twice about the imposition when they tell you, there is nothing worse than a fallen woman. Nothing worse than a woman who doesn't know her place. You will learn otherwise when you trade your truth for an ideal that no amount of good you do will ever be enough anyway. So, make up your own rules. Don't be afraid to hurl, to fall, to get dirt on your face. Sweetheart, let this be your one glorious mess because in the end the only person you should answer to is yourself. After all, you are a woman, And long before they punish you for what you've done, they will punish you for what you are. Thanks a million to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC. Quotes are subject to change upon publication. September Love comes out in Canada on 3 November 2020.

    It remains true, once again, that poetry collection by Lang Leav can be a hit or miss. And this one did it for me. Poignant, powerful, but vulnerable and deeply honest at the same time. I really enjoyed it, and I'm glad to see improvement in Leav's work. This one focused on the topics of lost love, and I loved those. However, some of my favourite poems explored being a writer from a different angle.

I simply loved reading about it. Leav's poetry is truly beautiful and, after reading everything except Sea of Strangers, I'm really excited to see where she stands when it comes to novel writing. And I'll patiently wait for her next release. Thanks to Netgalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing for providing me with eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I’m not sure if I could have enjoyed this collection any more than I did. Lang Leav is brilliant - the atmosphere in entries like “Being an Artist” the comparisons used like in “The Path of a Writer”, the importance of the words like in “A Woman”, the shifting between heartbreak and hope...was just all so utterly beautiful. I’m so glad I received this ARC, and I look forward to purchasing it for my collection.

I especially related to her pieces about writing and being a writer, because I used to write poetry as well and I felt exactly the same way she did: you can't hide when you're writing poetry, everyone will see you and pick apart your words and will have a say and not everyone will like you. I think that's a very important statement to keep in mind, especially in the social media age. I also loved when she talked about this generation always under scrutiny and how we can't escape our mistakes, because they're written or recorded somewhere forever. I highly recommend this to anyone who's looking for strong pieces about feminism, self-empowerement and love. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for allowing me to read this early and thanks to Lang Leav for writing a stunning collection.

    Finished reading: 3.8/5 ⭐ "We talk so much about our lives, we forget to live it." 26 Nov 2020 Basically, I'll read whatever Lang Leav write. And this year I'm definitely lacking in my poetry quota. So before this year is over I decided to pick up September Love to read. Simply because I'm sure L.L. wouldn't write anything anyone considers as a letdown.

I do think that there are people who will like this collection, namely people who adore Rupi Kaur-esque-poetry, but it’s just not for me. There are moments in this where I think it had the potential to lead somewhere incredible, however, the end result was always just semi disappointing Take this line for example: "I give you up, fingernails dig in dirt, spitting up blood, I give you up." ***** “I would imagine this isn’t love, but some other beast altogether." ***** "You’ll get what you want if you’re willing to wait if not when you want it then when it’s too late." ***** Moments like that! It’s almost reminiscent of Sylvia Plath. It’s got potential, but I just found myself bored with it. Like I’ve read the exact same thing before. I’ll give props to the author though. Putting out a poetry collection for the world to take in as it pleases; especially when writing about topics that are personal to you is, I imagine, potentially nerve wracking. So I’ll add a star just for the bravery. I also find her personal story fascinating as well and it’s easy to pick out some of the parts correlating to her life story.

    I like it! September Love is a beautiful rendered collection of prose and poetry that center on the theme of love and self-empowerment. I can't say that I like all the poems in this book; I find some of them are very empowering, some flow perfectly to provoke emotions and some are just ok. Although I’m not a huge fan of the author's works, I'm quite familiar with the style poetry she writes. And for me, in September Love, Leav has skillfully weaved her words and managed to capture the intensity I like it!

There are a lot of poems that are really lovely and enjoyable, but I am taking a liking to ones that focus on self-growth. I love how Leav just pours out encouragement for us to never let pains to break us as we are the one who have the power to our own happiness. The only thing that holds me back that I feel can be improved however, is mainly the flow structure of the poems. I would prefer them to be grouped accordingly into respective themes so that we can really see the journey that these poems go on and take us along with it because they are quite scattered, like collections of Tumblr posts without clear narration.

    I like many poems of this collection, I connected with them, the poems were very short and easy to read but there were some poems that i didn't really like and that felt very empty. The poems follow themes like love, writing, feminist, self-love and more. The Leuv’s style is beatiful and very inspiring, I will definitely read more by the author. Something extra that I love is that the poems were different formats.

    I am always happy to read a new Lang Leav poetry collection. And,as always, this newest one,September Love,did not disappoint. There is just something about her writing that hits me like no one else can. Even the small poems that are just a few lines have an impact on me. I feel like there wasn't a poem here that I didn't enjoy, but I especially liked the ones on writing. Huge thank you to Netgalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    *I received a copy of this book from the Publisher through Netgalley. As soon as I saw that Lang Leav had a new collection on NetGalley I knew I wanted to pick it up, I have enjoyed her poetry in the past and was eager to check out this collection. I have to say that this is probably my favorite of what I've read from her. There was a lot of self exploration and I could feel the rawness in her words. It's a quick read, as most poetry collections can be, but it is full of impact and emotion. *I received a copy of this book from the Publisher through Netgalley.

    Lang Leav's poetry book September Love had a lyrical sort of writing about moments from everyday life. It felt like this book was, in a way, the author's love letter to life in that it covered the good but also the bad. Her poetry covered various subjects like romantic love, self-love, but also expanded to include topics on being a creator and writing poetry. I feel like with some poetry books, it's easy to go through, read it in one sitting, and have it adorn your bookshelves after.

Leav's book did not feel that way — it was something that stayed with me as I read and moved from poem to poem. They all felt interconnected in some intangible way, which added to the dreamy way this book was written. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC!

    3 just because I loved some poems stars I almost always don't know what to say when it comes to Leav's poetry, because there are some that I genuinely love, and some that are so overdone and overwrought, it leaves a distasteful memory on my tongue, and acts more to ruin the feelings that the ones before it had invoked. "More love is found in grief than in love itself" There are some poems in this book that I found myself going back for, but rest of the pages filling this book was filled with filler 3 just because I loved some poems stars I almost always don't know what to say when it comes to Leav's poetry, because there are some that I genuinely love, and some that are so overdone and overwrought, it leaves a distasteful memory on my tongue, and acts more to ruin the feelings that the ones before it had invoked.

What else is left to say?

    Arc provided by Author through netgalley✨. Lang leav never seems to disappoint me with how good of a grasp she has on words. However, it was always hard to me to admire her other poetry collection, untill this one gracefully came. It was captivating, relatable, kind, and it was true. It felt like home. When poetry is too personal or too vague, you feel unwelcomed, but I felt fully welcomed. I felt like lang opened the book and asked me to read, till I cannot stop.

I always find it hard to love a one sentence poem, but hers showed me that somethings need only a sentence. I believe this was written about me as every reader will believe. Every poetry reader will feel Nostalgic, warm, and not alone. Notes: •What a beautiful start. •This happened to me. •Can lang stop writing good books?I suppose not. I• want to talk about these poems out loud and tell the world yes this is how I feel. •I can't stop reading but I'm tired. •I simply love this. Thank you, Lang leav for always giving me magic✨.

    Poetry books are hard to review. As a fan of classic poetry, modern poetry touches my heart in rare occasions. But I found that Lang Leav writes beautifully what I am feeling inside. How is she privy to such a secret? How is she able to pen them down the way it is? Honest. Poignant. Aching. September Love is more than love poems. It's almost a survival guide. I loved most of the poems, if not all. My favourites among them are: ●Ingredients of a poem ●Being an artist ●Self-control ●After thirty ●A wom Poetry books are hard to review.

    I'm not an expert in writing a review for poetry collection, so this review comes from an amateur side. I love her poems for its simplicity, although sometimes, I can't grasp the hidden messages she's trying to convey. I found myself smiling, laughing, and frowning in between my reading. I marked 13 pages as my favorite. Some of Lang Leav's writings here somehow could provide me with answers I've been asking myself.

She not only talks about love but also about life, women, writers, even your existence. Sometimes she describes something through her poem so vividly that the scene is playing in my head. Definitely would recommend this to my friends who love poetry collection, and I'd come back to this book whenever I need a reminder about why I exist. Thank you, NetGalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing for providing me the e-ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I have always enjoyed reading Lang Leav’s poetry and this one is just as beautiful as the other books. My favorite poem from this was “Grief”, I found it absolutely touching. The other poems were really great and if you love any of their previous works you’ll definitely enjoy this!

    (3 stars = liked it) Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for making this book available as "read now". I have been hearing about Lang Leav for a long time, and am still to check her other works out (which I still want to do after reading this, so that should be a good sign!). I have also heard that her books can be a hit-or-miss and, somehow, for me this was both! For the first third of it, I thought stuff was pretty basic but specially around the middle I found many that I really liked and (3 stars = liked it) Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for making this book available as "read now". I have been hearing about Lang Leav for a long time, and am still to check her other works out (which I still want to do after reading this, so that should be a good sign!). I have also heard that her books can be a hit-or-miss and, somehow, for me this was both! For the first third of it, I thought stuff was pretty basic but specially around the middle I found many that I really liked and bookmarked. In September Love, Leav covers heartbreak, grief, abuse, feminism/patriarchy, knowing yourself and being known, self-reflections upon her own writing, other people's reflections upon her writing, and (you guessed it) love. She switches back and forth between those, and there may be one or two other topics that were featured, but these were the main ones. She also switches between verse and prose (I hope I'm getting these terms right), which I thought was interesting. Even more interesting was how you could be reading about love and tenderness and on the next page you would be reading about heartbreak and abandonment. A true rollercoaster. As I said, this was both a hit, where the words were beautiful and I felt what she put on the page, and a miss, where the poems seemed too simple and didn't elicit any special emotions and I couldn't connect with them. I was considering the possibility that the texts I liked the most were only the ones I was able to relate to, but I've debunked the theory. I found the bits where she talks about her writing to be really interesting, as you get a view of what she has been through as a person and as a writer (but, remember: you still don't know her). I look forward to reading more from her in the future!
