    "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 went into this one with high hopes because taking from all I've seen by Noor on social media, this should have been a visual and textual delight. Disappointing, underwhelming, kind of like a Tumblr feed in book form. ...

    I am growing flowers in the darkest part of my heart for if the light ever enters it would know where to start. I think I'll be revisiting this book again, it's so beautifully written. I least expected this but each & every line was soul-touching. I'd recommend this to an...

    What happened to good old poetry that is more art and less like a tumblr feed? I got the book as a present but still was expecting something substantial in the book but failed to find anything worthy. This is just similar to what Rupi Kaur or any other modern poet writes (barely any se...

    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...

    It's been quite the minute since I last read a poetry collection, so when my eyes landed on this beauty of a book I was beyond keen on diving in. yesterday i was the moon is a collection of poetry by noor unnahar - it explores courage, self-love, culture and the struggles of ma...

    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...

    Este es otro poemario que encontré por ahí. Miren cuántas lecturas variadas que estoy probando este año xD. Realmente disfruté este libro. Fueron poemas muy hermosos, inspiradores y fuidos. ¡Me encantaron! No me parece que sea una obra maestra ni se los voy a estar recomendando...

    Since I write *cough* poetry *cough* I'm reading more and more recently. And I really liked 'Yesterday I was the moon'. It had this resilient feel to it. Like the author is making an armor using her words. Also It RHYMES. These days a lot of modern poetry doesn't actually rhyme. Which ...

    This collection was amazing. After the one I just read that I wasn't enjoying much, this was a nice change. I also really loved the illustrations that accompanied some of the poems. This was such a beautiful book (inside and out), and I will definitely be re-reading it occasionally for...

    this was so lovely to read. i wish some of them were more hard-hitting - she definitely hints at emotion rather than using devastating words that show her emotion (which are my favorite, by the way). i would've given this 4 stars usually, but in this day and age, god it felt SO good to...

    I picked up this book today and finished read it at one sitting. There were some poems that I highlighted as I like it and there were some poems that I couldn?t relate to. The poems are simple and ilustrations are nice. I glad because this poetry book is not all about love & ...

    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. ...

    Lleno de fuerza? Algunos poemas me han marcado profundamente, me han hecho reflexionar o me han tocado la fibra sensible.? En cambio otros, se me han hecho tediosos y no me hacían sentir practicamente nada. La temática me ha gustado bastante, pues habla de uno mismo, los...

    I just opened Yesterday I Was the Moon to see if they were as bad as I remember. I landed on "be kind/for this is something/a lot of people/can never be". That's a poem. Now, if that appeals, then Yesterday I Was the Moon probably will too. Personally I can't remember reading anything ...

    Personal interpretation: I totally valuate this kind of writings; the act of recording of events written by a person having an intimate knowledge of them and based on personal observation. This kind of "intimate" memoir is the best for me. I find truthfulness and trueh...

    Torn between two and three stars. This is written with emotion, honesty and poignancy, but there's really nothing new or original to see here - it reminds me of almost every poetry collection by a woman of color I've read recently (Rupi Kaur, Warsan Shire, Nayyirah Waheed...). S...

    One of the best reads of 2018. The lines are perfect and very relatable. Emotions described well. Genuine and mesmerizing. However I had some issues with a few lines of a particular poem regarding some words hinting to acceptance of women being kept confined or restricted to rules of...
