Swimming Lessons: Poetry That Never Stopped Swimming | Book Review

My Review (With Spoilers)

I really loved these poems. I wanted to rate this book five stars, but to be realistic, these poems are basic. Five star poems are poems that make me feel, and make me second guess all of my interpretations to the poems. Five star poems are the type of poems that make me wanna write quotes to them all over my room.

This collection was good, but  not that good. Each poem felt like it was telling a larger story, and I loved it. This was one of those books poetry that make it feel like an exhilarating ride and I loved it.

What I liked about the book:

I liked how the poems told an overall story. Each poem told a different story, but overall told the story of Lili as a person. Lili revealed that she wrote this book as a way to cope and I felt that. As basic as they were, I truly felt like I was reading about Lili’s life in such a vulnerable way.

What I didn’t like about the book:

Not to be fake or anything, but there wasn’t anything I didn’t like about the book. I really enjoyed it. 

Maybe she could of expanded on some poems, but overall, it was worth it the read.

Will I read more books by this

Yes! I really hope this isn’t her last collection of poetry.
