New Addition To The Poetry Shelf.. “Love Her Wild”, by Atticus Poetry.

Why Hello There!

As you guys know, over the past six months or so.. I’ve been steadily building up my “Poetry Collection”. I have a separate shelf just for Poetry, and it’s growing week by week.

Being part of the whole “Bookstagram” community, I’m constantly being shown photos/reviews/ and excerpts from so many new poets.. mainly the very trendy “Instagram Poets” as they are now called by the mass media. For example, just look at the mega success of Rupi Kaur’s book of poetry “Milk and Honey” lately.. The Internet literally took that book by storm, and it’s actually EVERYWHERE I look. I’m so happy because Rupi is incredible, and her poetry deserves to be seen worldwide by the masses.. but something about the whole “Instagram Poet” title feels a bit cheap to me. These amazing Poets are far more then just “Instagram” worthy. Everyone should read these books of poems, and while I’m glad they are getting so much press online, I also hope people realize how they are far more than just the “hype”, if you catch my drift. Okay.. Rant over haha.

Anyways, so I’ve been hearing a ton of buzz about this Poet “Atticus Poetry”, and I was very intrigued. Not only are the snippets of poetry that I’ve come across AMAZING, but he also presents the poems in his book alongside some spectacular Photography as well. By combining the two art forms, it really gives it an edge, and makes it so stand out to me.

The Photography inside this book is absolutely inspiring, and so gorgeous. I found myself stopping every few pages and just thinking “HOW did he get this incredible shot?!”. The poems are gorgeous as well, and they are pretty much everything I’ve been loving about modern poetry these days… and with the addition of the stunning photographic work.. It’s just an all around 10/10 for me.

Atticus the poet is actually doing a “Meet and Greet” tomorrow evening at Metrotown here in Vancouver, and he will be masked for the event.. which I am intrigued by to say the least. I hope I can make it, and get my book signed. I’ll keep you all posted in my upcoming “July Wrap Up” about what happens with this whole “Meet and Greet” thing.

Love you guys,

xoxo

Carly.
