Divided into 4 sections (The Last Page of My Book, Modern Love, Not Meant for Each Other, and Love in Abundance), this poetry collection makes for a perfect short read over a weekend or at the end of a tiring workday.

An easy-breezy one-time read.

What I liked about the book:
-> Reading the poems under “The Last Page of My Book” was so nostalgic. It makes us recall our love life during our educational time period. Like about our crushes during school, how we used to write our unsaid feelings and thoughts on the last pages of our books.
-> The author has expressed unsaid feelings in a deep and relatable manner.
-> Each section in the book depicts different shades of love. The poems are emotionally sound and even though they appear simple, the reader will find themselves immersed in their depth pretty fast.

What I did not like about the book:
-> As someone who likes more classic poetry, this one didn’t match my taste much.
-> It doesn’t leave behind much and I’m someone who likes thought-provoking reads, so I guess it’s just okay for a one-time read.

Quotable quotes:
->Some call it traveling as I tire myself,
Some call it wandering as I find myself.
->This is how we live now.
This is how we end.
Same field. Same cage.
One room. Different beds.
->Kiss me goodbye and set me free.
->Of everything love could be
It shouldn’t be hard work.
->He would admire the sky
I would touch the sand
->Life isn’t about falling in love
As much as it is about learning
To get over hatred.
->You looked like almost everybody I have ever loved.
