    I loved the cover and title of this, and was even really into the first few poems, which used a lot of science and outerspace metaphor to discuss bodies. But then the poems switched over into a trauma, psychology, not-really-poetry mode. At least, not literary poetry. If this is going ...

    5 Words: Being, power, understanding, strength, femininity. 5 More Words: Beauty, art, control, feminism, fairytales. This was absolutely incredible. Breathtaking. Captivating. Haunting. I just can't get my words into an appropriate semblance of sense to actually review it. ...

    Nikita Gill?s Wild Embers is mostly a collection of poetry, with the odd bit of (somewhat poetic) prose thrown in. A few common themes run through the work: recovering from trauma, learning to love yourself, learning to let yourself shine, being strong, being wild, being yourself. Gi...

    I absolutely loved the writing and the subject of this collection. Nikita Gill is one of my favourite modern poets, this is the second book I read from her and I have to say that her writihng improved very much. Her poems also had more substance and the fact that she included a section...

    The most beautiful book I have read in my lifetime. Words do not come to my mind, when I want to describe this book. Nikita Gill has given an all new dimension to the world of poetry with her simple yet complicated, short yet deeply meaningful poems. I have always questioned the fa...

    Someone I loved once told me that there are fragments within us that are the same age as the universe, and because we are matter, we can never be destroyed. That a part of us will live forever and ever, and that in making us the universe was celebrating itself, we are its living...

    We laud abusive men, celebrate their success despite knowing about the accusations against them, say that the women who accuse them are liars, and even if proved right, say that she is trying to destroy him. That she must have provoked him. Wild embers: poems of rebell...

    2.5/5. There are definitely a few gems in this poetry collection, but I feel like Gill needs to break out of her comfortzone. There is quite a lot of repetition in the symbolism and metaphors she uses, and the amount of almost-but-not-quite motivational speeches made me grind my teeth ...

    Somewhat of a controversial opinion, but I preferred her other book better. This was very easy to get through but I didn't really feel a lot, you know? I wanted my heart to feel full or at least something. there are beautiful words here, but they are just not my favorite words. i liked...

    I always find hard to rate poetry books, so before writing down my feelings and how I loved reading this poetry book by Nikita Gill, I wanted to explain why I gave it 5 out of 5 stars. To me, (and in my humble opinion) it is almost impossible to find a poetry book where you love every...

    I received this to read and review from NetGalley. This collection of poems is full of self love, strength and reminders that you are stronger than you think. There are lots of nods to space and how miniscule we all actually are. Reminders that what happens to you shouldn't define ...

    This was about me. Sort of. I felt it was. Space metaphors, the goddesses, fairytale retellings, praising softness, encourage self reinvention. It's like someone took my entire being and wrote it into the most beautiful poetry book. Nikita Gill did that! on tumblr there's this tag a...

    4.5 This woman can write her heart out -- literally, her heart and vulnerability and strength are on every single page of this opus. The cover is beautiful, just wanted to get that one out of the way. I LOVED THIS BOOK. SO, why not five stars? The book would have benefited fro...
