“i should’ve stopped”
those 4 words were repetition to my ears and those 4 words stuck with me the whole time. i might not know this heartbreak but i understand it. there is so many things we should have stopped but did not so we kept welcoming destruction and sorrow in our life. my heart hurt reading gretchen’s words but they were so open and raw. i was falling with each page i turned waiting for her happiness. it was as if i was rushing her but i had to read her journey to learn a great deal. r ...more
If you liked poetry books like Milk and Honey and The Princess Saves Herself in This One, THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU. I used to really not enjoy poetry. I thought of it as a piece of work that I had to analyze during English class. I also thought of scenes in movies/shows when a group of people sit in a cafe and a hipster guy stands at a front and proclaims an exaggerated poem while everyone snaps. So needless to say, I used to snicker at the idea of poetry. And I know I’m not alone in feeling this wa ...more
This beautiful soul of a poetess also known as my twin in the book blogging community, has released a book of poetry. I am now on my 3rd re-read & continue to find meaning and comfort within her words. For all those who have experienced that one toxic relationship, you know? the one you simply cannot let go...this one is for you. Love, and you will haunt you with each turn of a page & ultimately will leave you with hope for healing.

Gretchen does not hold back. Every emotion pours through with clarity and an exceptional rawness through this collection. She is an open book in her poetry; I felt each pang of heartache, each stepping stone of strength, and each and every triumph she expressed as if they were my own. It takes a special kind of writer to translate such intense emotion into clear poetry. Her honesty is humbling and beautiful. I adore this collection, and absolutely cannot wait to read more from Gretchen.
I'm trying to read more poetry but I think I'm going to see/hear more contemporary poetry rather than read it bc I feel like it's better suited for spoken medias.

I normally don't tend to review the poetry I read, but I just HAD to make an exception for Love, & You, a poetry bundle written by fellow book blogger Gretchen Gomez (chicnerdreads). I'm sure most have already heard about her blog and wonderful poetry posts, but make sure to visit her if you have ...more
I am at a loss of words.
Its so real and raw.
Each word that is written here comes from such a real place that the second I turned to page 5 I started crying and couldn't stop. I couldn't stop crying because Ive been there, Ive felt those things. We may have not be in the same situation but the emotions that were described are exactly the same. I guess I was crying for past Ilse and remembering how I got through it. I believe this book is important for anyone that is going through a hard time, re ...more
I loved this collection of poems. I cried, I smiled, I felt every bit. Gretchen has a gift for making the reader relate & empathize. I am SO GLAD I bought this collection & I keep going back to read again & again.
