    "art doesn't ask to be perfect poetic precise it asks to exist to breathe to be this is what it has always been about" (p. 75) I've been really determined to stay open to the different styles and new ideas appearing in poetry, and have been trying to stay more in the know a...

    I'd seen a couple of Noor's poems on the internet over the past couple years and they've always really grabbed me by the heartstrings. I finally got my hands on a copy of this beautiful collection of words and proceeded to find more wonderful poems that I really connected with. Noor wr...

    I loved everything about this book. The visuals held a simple elegance. The poems were true emotions built with beautiful language. The poet had something to say and made good use of the pages presented. I savored this book over the course of two weeks, mulling over the thoughts betwee...

    absolutely beautiful, raw, and wild poetry ?yesterday ? i was the moon today ? just an eclipse something in me travels; some days it?s to the dark some days it?s to the light? Reading this book of poetry was my Beltane gift to myself. So many of her poems resonate...

    I enjoyed this collection of poems, but I felt like many of them would have benefited from a little more editing and fewer words overall. That being said, it?s worth a read for those moments/poems that go straight to your heart and make it ache a little. ...

    This is just an honest review about how I felt. I'm a massive modern poetry fan. "Insta Poetry" as some like to call it. I like the millennial angst; I am said millennial. I like the socially acceptable dive into sadness; I often need something to tip me over the edge so that...

    When I first read Noor's poems on her Instagram, I immediately fell in love. Although English is not her first language, Noor has the power to create beautiful poetry. For me, her words motivate me to get out of bed every day and do something great with my life. I love how Noor can tak...

    i can't seem to put into words how deeply i felt most of the poems. they're deep and brilliant and you won't get them all by reading quickly. this book is like the moon itself: you have to take the time to observe it, explore it and admire it. noor unnahar, a thousand thanks-you's for...

    The artwork was cute, and the poems were okay. I wouldn't purchase this, but I'd recommend reading it. Maybe take it out from a library? Took me a while to finish only because I kept losing interest. ...

    I don?t read a lot of poetry. In fact, I?m not sure I know how to read it. I sit down and read a book like this in a half hour. But then there are some that I go back to a re-read ten times, or find myself thinking about all the time - that was some of these poems. I picked this up...

    noor unnahar's first publication shows a lot of promise. through reading the book, i found myself bookmarking and underlining about every other page. half of the poems in the book were profound, just as good as and if not better than what i've read on her stunning instagram portraits. ...

    I found many of these poems beautiful and relatable, but unfortunately some I didn?t connect with at all. It?s still a four star read for me tho, because it would be really wrong for me to judge it because I can?t relate to these kinds of things. Plus, I absolutely love the photo...

    I've read some of her work on her Instagram and fell in love with her art pieces. I really liked her book of poems because it's relatable and she's not hiding on her thoughts about herself, religion, and her family. "Be kind for this is something a lot of people can never be." ...

    I spontaneously picked this book up and am very glad I did. It's a pretty solid, quick to read poetry book. I enjoyed about 70% of the poems, LOVED 20%, and felt neutral on 10%. There are poems on all types of issues...from being in big cities to feeling out of place with yourself....
