#BookReview: When the World Didn't End by Caroline Kaufman


Synopsis: Teen Instagram sensation and author of Light Filters In @poeticpoison returns with a second collection of short, powerful poems about love, forgiveness, self-discovery, and what it’s like living after a hard-fought battle with depression, in the vein of poetry collections like Milk and Honey and the princess saves herself in this one. 

In her second book of poetry, Instagram sensation Caroline Kaufman—known as @poeticpoison—explores the shock, wonder, and beauty of an uncertain future.

When the World Didn’t End is a vivid account of trying to find a path forward while reckoning with the pain of the past, embracing imperfection, and unlearning the language of self-criticism.

It’s an ode to the awkward silence between goodbye and hanging up, to hearts that continue to beat after they’re broken, to the empty spaces that depression leaves behind. With vulnerability and insight, this powerful collection of short poems holds up a mirror to the doubt and longing inside us all.

This collection features completely new material plus some fan favorites from Caroline’s account. Filled with haunting, spare pieces of original art, When the World Didn’t End will thrill existing fans and newcomers alike.

so, 

what now?

how will you make the most of it?

how will you live the life you never thought you’d get the chance to see?

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟
My Review: I don't generally read books with poetry but the title of this one sounded really interesting. So I dived in and was glad that I did.  Each poem held its own in a new way as it took you on a journey you won't soon forget! I will have to check out more of her titles soon.
