this book and then I received this wonderful copy from Andrews Mcmeel I was hardly attracted at the cover of this book initially idk how many hours I thought why it had such a plain and simple cover but the moment I received this book I was amazed To say this book has the best and the most magnificent cover I have ever seen, it almost made my eyes shine and stands out of my entire book pile.After

magnificent cover I have ever seen, it almost made my eyes shine and stands out of my entire book pile.After getting out of this breathe taking cover when I finally entered in to the interior with perfect font initially I was lazy reading long poems but then a realization of wanting striked me to readandI have no words to describe Amanda s style of writing it s totally different from all other poets All I found in the book was Amanda Torroni , Amanda Torroni and Amanda Torroni Such unique books are oftenpleasure to read The poems unlike usual instagram poetry or contemporary poetry are a combination of both of them The length and style depicts the wonderful fusion of these two styles which comes out really very well Another thing I loved was the creativity that was profound in each poem right from the idea to structural layout of the poems poems seem toappealing when they please eyes as well The book is divided into five sections according to the phases of the moon namely full, gibbous, quarter, crescent and new Most of the poems are wonderful but to a part I felt I was unable to connect to some percent of the book so much that I almost understood nothing about a few poems otherwise the book is a totally different experience from rest of the poetry books.Here s something from the back cover although I liked the inner content muchThings I learnedfrom themoon at times

all ways.Book cover 5 5Content 4 5Overall rating 4 5 This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here 3.5 I really have a Love Hate relationship with this book For one I

of our spark I felt like that sentence was so genius I found myself bookmarking poems and highlighting sentences Which is exactly what I was looking for in this book of poems However I did struggle , I did feel like some of the poems where trying to hard The overuse of big words took away from the beautiful points of the poem It made it hard to read It took me a while to get into this book but when I finally did I really did I found myself remembering old loves and friendships moments in life But again I struggled honestly with the flow of this book Most of the poems did not spark inspiration in me or move me to action But I will definitely continue to follow her and see where this author goes from here I m not that big on modern poetry, but one of my goals this year is to try and readwidely, so what started as me absently looking at the display section in the bookstore ended with me deciding to take a chance on Stargazing at Noon Honestly, a good portion of the poems definitely didn t click with me I get abstract, but some of these were too much so and seemed to make little sense but there were other truly lovely pieces about grief and falling in love, as well as
