Please Dont Go Before I Get Better By Madisen Kuhn

When I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway, I was really excited. It sounded so good but upon reading it, I was disappointed. There was nothing truly memorable about this book. It read like a journal of a teenager and it was not relate-able, at least to me. 9781501196812 I promise you, that you will find something you can relate to here.


i am overwhelmingly in love and it is the most peaceful yet exhilarating feeling in the entire world. i feel like rain, a tornado, and the sun peeking out from behind the clouds after a violent storm, all at the same time. i am a mess of contentment and wonder. he is all i've ever wanted.
9781501196812 “it's easy to look back and romanticize the bits of time when you were first getting to know someone. both of you were looking at each other the same way you have to look at the sun when it's in the middle of the sky; squinting because it's so bright.”

Beautiful collection by Madisen Kuhn. It took me a minute to get into it and fully appreciate the style, but it usually does when it comes to me reading poetry, and once I did it was a great experience all around. The poems after the 50% mark were my favourite, so definitely suggest you stick it out if you start reading this and don't fully connect with the first few poems.

Will be looking for more work by Madisen in the future! 9781501196812 Borrowed this from the library, read it in one sitting, and definitely going to buy it for my all time favorites shelf. I cried several times throughout this reading experience. I have never felt more seen by a poetry collection, and it's hard for me to any of my thoughts into words. the author of this poetry collection, thank you 🥲🖤 9781501196812 *I received a Netgalley arc of this book*

I thought the collection was well written(even if the poems were more like journal entries). However, I feel like Please Don't Go Before I Get Better definitely has a target audience that I am not apart of. I could easily see how it would be easy for lots of people to love. The style is very aesthetic-y and tumblr-y. I gave it a 3/5 stars because although it wasn't my cup of tea, I was able to appreciate it. 9781501196812

Please Dont Go Before I Get Better

pense que iba a ser mi favorito, porque el titulo es justamente lo que estoy sintiendo ahora pero fue terrible 9781501196812 the possibility of it all
of connection
of becoming
of leaving a speck
in the eye of a world
that didn't see me,
not yet

i could be anything.

how lovely it is,
to fall asleep
knowing that you lived today

'you are home,
you are home,
you are home.'
these bones, this heart; i am my own home.
i could sail across the ocean, or get stuck in the middle of it, but i'll never be lost.

i am home.

this was beautiful. i cried a bunch of times because words make me weak. madisen truly has a talent for writing, and the audiobook with her reading made the experience that much more special. the way she writes about love is so personal, and yet it is easy to connect with her poems. after following her through social media for several years, her openness on the internet allows for such a deeper level of understanding when reading her books. absolutely loved this. 9781501196812 by far one of my favorite collections of poetry to date. 9781501196812 **I received a free copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.**

The expected publication date for Please Don't Go Before I Get Better by Madisen Kuhn is May 1, 2018

2.5 stars

I was really looking forward to reading this, and I was really excited when I got accepted on Netgalley to read this [even though it was only a day before the release date I saw I had gotten accepted, but that's beside the point]. Now, I wouldn't say I was let down, however, I was disappointed in this, nonetheless, and it did not meet the expectations I had set for it or that it had blatantly set for itself.

I didn't get much Amanda Lovelace or Rupi Kaur out of this, as the synopsis says this was perfect for fans of. I got a lot more Instagram poet-esque. Not to mention, about 3/4 of the poems read more like journal entries than actual poems.

This didn't really speak to me as I really was hoping it would and really wanted it to. [How many times can I use the word 'really' in a single sentence - A GAME!] There were a few that stood out to me, but there weren't any that spoke to me.

Even though I enjoy poetry a lot, this really wasn't for me. There is definitely an audience for this, but I was, unfortunately, not apart of that audience. Honestly, I thought [and hoped] that I would be apart of the audience that rated this five-stars and added it to their 'favorites' shelf, but, nope.

I thought the formatting of this was nice, and I liked the little illustrations on some of the pages that coordinate with a poem. They were simple, and, as much as I hate this word, very Tumblr aesthetic-y [ew]

Kuhn being so young, I can tell that she has an immense amount of potential to be up there with poets like Amanda Lovelace and Rupi Kaur, but, for right now, she is not up there with me.

I would like to, at some point, get Kuhn's first poetry collection titled eighteen years as, from the poems I have read from it, seems a lot more up my alley than Please Don't Go Before I Get Better ended up being. 9781501196812 So we calling THIS poetry now, huh? Yikes.

Fake deep, if I've ever seen it. 9781501196812
