Bleed Like Me: Poems for the Broken by Azzurra Nox – Book Review

I received this arc over NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Bleed Like Me: Poems for the Broken by Azzurra Nox is a collection of poems. It touches various topics, such as love, lust, depression and self-harm. 43370097

Keep in mind that I love poetry but this book didn’t do it for me at all. I know poetry is extremely subjective and that is why I don’t feel like I’m in the position to say it is a bad book just because it isn’t of my liking.

The writing is quite good and I feel like it could have been a great book. Sadly, overall it felt too melodramatic and sometimes it felt quite depressing and morbid just for the sake of it. Don’t get me wrong, I know it is important to talk openly about depression but in this book, I felt like it was being romanticized, which is never a good thing. Besides that, the book didn’t seem to grasp the reality of those feelings, which prevented me from enjoying most part of the poems.

With that being said, if I was still in my teen years, in my emo phase, I would probably have different feelings towards this book. Just because of what it made me feel.

Sadly, I gave this book 1 out of 5 stars.

Bye, keep on reading.
