I was kindly approached by the author of To the man I loved too much to review her book. I was very happy to receive a copy of this book and in this blog post you’ll read what my thoughts are on Gabrielle G.’s debut poetry book.
What is To the man I loved too much about?
In her first collection of poems, Gabrielle G. depicts different love stories from the initial spark to the last heartbreak and writes in verses the heartache we’ve all been through. A poetry book to make your heart smile and weep at the same time.
What did I think of To the man I loved too much?
I really enjoyed reading this debut poetry book. Gabrielle G. really managed to express a lot of emotions into her poems, such as heartbreak, love, anger,… The book consist of 14 ‘chapters’, all with a different but meaningful meaning. The artwork that each ‘chapter’ starts with is really pretty as well, as you can see on this picture:
Gabrielle G.’s poems are really raw and thoughtful. You can really feel the emotions through them, and I think that’s important in poetry.
Here’s my favorite poem from the short collection:
I asked the moon to guide me, In the path of our love, As I was blind to see. Stellar tips. The moon stayed silent, But the stars screamed That our love was distant. Lunar eclipse. The sun came to my rescue And burnt all my doubts But then payment was due. Solar explosion. So, I gave my sky away, Blackened by madness; And left you in dismay. Heartless decision.
At the end of the book, there was also a list of other books Gabrielle G. has written. I’m really excited to look these up and dive into them!
Thank you to the author Gabrielle G. for sending me a copy of this book. This in no way affected my opinion.
