    3.5 stars. I like her writing style. Some poems were better than others but I enjoyed it and will be reading more of her work. ...

    "you make leaving me sound so beautiful, not like an apology, not like a goodbye, you make leaving me sound like forgiveness" This collection of poems hurts. It hits you right in the heart and holds you in its visceral fist. It's gritty, raw, heartbreaking and real, oh so ...

    So I devoured this book like no other! I literally read it in under an hour. Savage has a way of writing the ugliest and hardest subjects so beautifully. It's like she can see into souls. There is at least one poem for everyone in this collection. I'm in major book hangover. Fat Girls,...

    Wow, just wow. This collection made me feel right down into my very soul. I can say with all honesty that the way Kat Savage writes makes me feel as if she is in my very head. I'm sure I am not the only one that her writing touches either. It is raw, vulnerable, strong, and so powerful...

    Savage. Her name perfectly describes her words. Blunt. A punch that will catch you offguard somewhere between your abdomen and the memory of the boy in 5th grade that snapped your bra strap so hard you cried. In today's society women feel alone or at odds with one another, but I thi...

    How do I explain the emotions? Each poem, each line, pulls you in. I did not have to experience any of them to be exactly in that raw moment. I wanted to yell and cry and hug. Kat?s words strip away everything, they let you know you are not alone. They let you know even if you feel w...

    This was a great collection of poems, emotional and real. I hope this makes you uncomfortable... And at moments it really does. Great reads should make you uncomfortable.. make you feel something. ...

    Wow. That was the first word that popped in my head when I read the very first poem. So much of this collection felt open, raw and emotional. The goal of the book was leave you feeling exposed and empowered. Kat wrote so beautifully and unapologetically about what it is like to be a wo...

    Another good collection of poetry from this author. My favorite quote: "It is this, it will always be this Back and forth, my state of mind a pendulum, a broken clock Rewind, fast forward Stop Please stop." ...

    Perfection. It was a cathartic experience. Some poems I felt deep in my marrow. Some unrelated to people I love so much and want them to read them too so they can feel they?re not alone, ever. Kat Savage writes unabashedly raw, real, beautiful words. I?m enraptured by them. I can...

    I Hope This Makes You Uncomfortable...yes - yes, it will. Kat Savage speaks such hard truths, shining the spotlight on things usually kept in the dark. I love honesty and I love truth, but today while reading, I just felt sad. I felt an intense sadness for Kat's struggles and a deep de...

    Wow, this collection of poetry left me nearly speechless. Once I read the dedication, I knew it was going to be powerful. I wasn't wrong. Her poetry is written in a way that makes you feel all of her pain and emotion through the pages right down to your core. It's real, it's raw and it...

    DEVOURED!!! So yeah, some really gritty visceral pieces in here broken up with the all to relatable broken heart. Loved the ones about insecurities. Because, fuck, that?s so relatable for me. A beautiful collection the author spilled the dark parts of her broken heart into. ...

    I really enjoyed this collection! It was a quick read but a deep one. Each poem evoked emotion and I could personally relate to so much in this book. It does speak a lot of abuse and the authors trauma but it?s in a way that makes you feel like you?re not alone in what you went thr...

    Great poetry This book of poetry is aptly named because if it doesn't make you feel uncomfortable, then I don't know what will. There were a few poems that stood out and made me feel very emotional for the writer. This is a book young people should read to understand the consequence...

    This book hurts. I mean to be blunt because that's exactly what Kat is. She doesn't sugar coat or dilute for comfort. She tells her truth exactly how it feels in her heart and it's apparent with every word. I'm no stranger to Kat's writing so I went into this knowing that she was g...

    Are these beautiful poetry people trying to kill me or something? Drown me in feels? Make me feel things I don't typically feel? I think they are. And when I say 'they', I mean Kat Savage and J.R. Rogue. I Hope This Makes You Uncomfortable definitely made me feel uncomfortable. I s...

    From the first poem it was obvious how the title was a perfect fit. Everything that is written down are things women have gone through and kat wrote it down so honest and raw but at the same time so beautiful. You are so open with everything you've gone through and I thank you for givi...

    This collection brought me back. Back to the beginning, to the reason I am friends with this author? her writing. I still remember finding her on Instagram and shouting her out, letting everyone know how refreshing I thought she was. This collection hurts. It really hammered home...

    First of all, this cover art is AMAZING. This collection of poems is amazing. I have enjoyed all of Kat's collections, but I felt a real connection with this one. I saw myself and my past in several of the poems and, yes, it made me uncomfortable. Kat digs out the emotions we try to ...

    Beautiful, thought provoking, emotional. Some poetry I?ve read have just been fancy words put together to give the reader a glimpse in the authors life and maybe get something out of it, but this book does so much more. It makes you reach into your own self and find that these words...

    Kat was right: this collection made me uncomfortable but in a good way. She has a way of writing that is full of teeth, brutally honest, and unafraid. The way she weaves words leaves me in awe at times. ...

    Transcendent. Also kind of angry. Intense too. Soulful. At this point, I'm spouting very accurate adjectives. This made me feel things. Understood, mostly. A quick read with a strong message. My message from it is that I wasn't alone. That I am not alone, and that's overwhelming and th...

    "you make leaving me sound so beautiful, not like an apology, not like a goodbye, you make leaving me sound like forgiveness" Everything in this collection is so beautifully done. The title should serve as a Content Warning, my friends. Savage aims to discomfort the reader with...

    I have seen a lot of reviews on here raving about loving this collection of poems but for me that wasn't the case as much. I definitely didn't hate it or anything but when reading poems I want to feel that gut punch or pulls at my heartstrings and I didn't feel much reading this person...

    Kat, I swear your soul aligns with mine in so many ways. Your poetry always makes me drown in blood from the inside out. With this, you put your hand inside my chest & gripped my heart. Squeezing tighter as I read each line. I have never been so moved by poetry the way I am yours. ...

    Pain Never Read so beautifully I?ve read 3 books of Kat and each time, I am left in awe how she can find new ways to share her pain, joy, happiness and sadness. As a poet, I understand the importance of connecting your words with your readers, and I will say this is a skill Kat ha...
