    Thank you Andrews McMeel Publishing for providing an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Worlds of You is a poetry collection about all kinds of love. It varies from relationship, heartbreaks, friendship and life-altering moments. The poems are easy to follow and inspirational. I like it but it wasn't as impactful as I've thought. Some of them are ordinary and fell flat.

I loved the format. I basically loved the whole thing. if you haven’t get that I perhaps need to mention once more I love it If you don’t enjoy poetry prose then don’t pick this up. I am not a huge fan of this style but this book for certain is my favorite. It was like reading all the quotes I highlight in my favorite romances, basically is my favorite thing of my favorite books. The writing is exquisite and thoughtful, I can sense it comes directly from the depths of the author. You can also tell the influences of songwriting in his poems and I am not complaining. I actually went to his Tumblr account and read this book while listening to the playlist he has there, it was lovely. I would read everything he puts out honestly, even a dictionary for that matter. Although the books are a bit pricey, so I guess when I am rich or at least work I will buy this books and wake up every morning to read one of this. The message came like an arrow to my heart. It talks about how we need to live our lives in a meaningful way, how we need to stop being afraid of loving, how we don’t need to change ourselves for someone to love us. It honestly hit home in so many ways. I again want to put all the quotes in my review but that’s not the point. I a, just grateful this came to save me in my endless 1-3 start readings lately. I will leave now to handwrite the quotes and poems that I love the most. An easy, fast, deep, exquisite read about loving and loving ourselves. Highly recommend if you enjoy moving writing and prose poetry.

    The Girl Murdered by Her TBR

    ARC generously provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Arc #4 2 stars! I honestly found this one pretty dull. I liked some of the poems and prose because I can feel the emotions of the author, but the rest of the content of this book were just simple words for me. I found the rest of the poems and prose similar to other books and/or tumblr post I read online. There wasn’t also a single thing in this book that hooked my attention.

    Worlds of You, at its very core, is romantic. “My heart does not have a fallback, no plan B or fail-safe, it’s you or no one else.” It’s a love letter written with rose petal-coloured ink, drenched in sugar and honey, and addressed to a soulmate destined from the beginning of time to set your heart on fire, gazing into your eyes while you lie under the dark, glittering sky together, your hands softly intertwined. The positive: — Worlds of You expresses good sentiments and addresses themes such as sel Worlds of You, at its very core, is romantic. “My heart does not have a fallback, no plan B or fail-safe, it’s you or no one else.” It’s a love letter written with rose petal-coloured ink, drenched in sugar and honey, and addressed to a soulmate destined from the beginning of time to set your heart on fire, gazing into your eyes while you lie under the dark, glittering sky together, your hands softly intertwined. The positive: — Worlds of You expresses good sentiments and addresses themes such as self-love, the significance of friendship, and the realization that romantic relationships can come to an end, and you’ll be just fine. The less positive: — The expression of those sentiments, and oftentimes the sentiments themselves, seem juvenile and quite cliché. Chances are, you’ll feel (as I did) as if you’ve experienced those words of wisdom already, albeit wrapped up in slightly different words. — Many poems read more like vignettes that miss that certain unquantifiable atmosphere. I oftentimes felt as if I was reading the diary of a teenage girl who’s putting down her thoughts on experiencing love/heartbreak for the first time in her life. — The book lacks an overall golden thread. I sometimes had the impression I was scrolling through Tumblr posts tagged #poems, because the poems felt … disjointed. My final thoughts: Maybe I’ve been reading too much poetry lately, and maybe I’ve simply grown tired of this particular format. However, no matter the reason, I believe that for the right reader Worlds of You could be a wonderful read—but I am not that reader. Glimpses of lyricism: “I plant roots so deeply in the people I love that I always lose a piece of myself when they go.” * “Painfully, we all learn very early on that a human being can break you in a few short, simple words.” * “The hours between 12am and 6am have a funny way of making you feel like you’re either on top of the world or under it.” A special thank you to Andrews McMeel Publishing for providing an advance copy of this book. It in no way influenced my rating or opinion of it. Blog | Bloglovin’ | Instagram | Tumblr | Twitter

    I was sent this by Andrew's McMeel Publishing in exchange for an honest review! I thoroughly enjoyed this collection. I found myself being able to connect with it and self reflect because of it as well. Really nice writing style and manages to discuss many topics well.

    Rise and shine. I've always felt such fondness for that sweet old phrase. As though we are all little suns. As though we are all someone's day. I loved this. I was immediately invested right from the start because of that introduction. The first poem and the explanation really got to me, and I was hooked the whole way through. I really enjoyed the writing style, the themes of love and acceptance, and I thought that a lot of the poems throughout the book stood out. The photographs were beautiful, and I Rise and shine.

Some of Taplin's poems really reminded me of Madisen Kuhn's writing style, which I also love. Overall a really lovely book! Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for allowing me to read this!

    Some of the poems were good. This poetry book is about heartbreak and love. I kinda like tired reading about the heartbreaks honestly but I don’t know what was wrong with me I read it anyway. And turned out I liked it. Every word that the author put into was easy to understand. I can relate with some of the poems too. A few poems that I liked are Into My Arms, Stay, The Moment, Life Stories and Real Loss.

    ** 2.5 stars ** There are worlds in you, and I have fallen in love with every one. Well. Honestly I have to say this was bit of a disappointment. I’ve been wanting to read Bloom by Beau Taplin, unfortunately my library does not carry it but when I saw Worlds of You on NetGalley I decided I would start with this and read Bloom at a later date. I’m starting to think that I went into this with too high of expectations, although I’m really not a harsh critic when it comes to poetry. You want to know what ** 2.5 stars ** There are worlds in you, and I have fallen in love with every one. Well. Honestly I have to say this was bit of a disappointment. I’ve been wanting to read Bloom by Beau Taplin, unfortunately my library does not carry it but when I saw Worlds of You on NetGalley I decided I would start with this and read Bloom at a later date. I’m starting to think that I went into this with too high of expectations, although I’m really not a harsh critic when it comes to poetry. You want to know what it was? The moment I knew you were it? It was when I showed you the darkest parts of me, and instead of running away, you rolled out a blanket, lay on your back, and pointed out the stars. Worlds of You started off strong, I was writing down pages of poems I was enjoying but my recording of page numbers quickly came to an end. I was no longer connecting with the poems, and as I flipped through the pages of this on my iPad I couldn’t help but wonder if there was suppose to be a theme to this? If I remember correct this was spilt into two sections: Heart and Spirit. Heart felt like it was never ending, seriously. This section was too long while Spirit was only roughly maybe 35-40 pages. I’m curious to know what the thought process was in terms of the composition of World of You because it felt like this lacking flow. When it comes to relationships, I have only one rule: give me truth, however cold or cruel or hard it is to hear. I would rather have my heart broken, if it means I can then release the hurt and move on, than waste a single moment of my time being fooled by a lie intended to preserve my feelings. Overall, World of You started off strong but quickly became a dull read for me. I’m not sure if I’ll read Bloom but if I do I hope I have better luck with it.

    We don’t mean to hurt each other, but we do. And perhaps no matter how right we are for each other, we’ll always be a little too wrong. Reading some of the poems/prose was like setting fire to my own heart. Nothing extraordinary, quite repetitive, but still enough to sting.

As you can see from the list at the end of this review, I liked and even loved a lot of the poems from this collection. I've read Bloom, my first book I’ve ever read written by Beau Taplin, and I think that Worlds of You is even better! I really liked Bloom, but Worlds of You contains even more poems that I really like and this book is also a lot bigger than Bloom. Worlds of You is definitely one of my favourite poetry collections! Ultimately, the worst kinds of pain do not come from your enemies but the people you trust and love. My favourite poems are: Worlds in You The Awful Truth Don’t Pity Me In Tune Life Stories Truth The Greatest Weight Fallback One Fraction of a Moment The Important Things Act Cool Light & Noise Stay Friends Forgiveness Long Distance The Pressure Awfully Beautiful Ticking Clock A Careful Compromise The Falling Close Enough Once Certainty Hostels & Homes The Long Road Too Wrong Anywhere, Anytime Wildflowers Dear outsiders, even the most beautiful of wildflowers are considered weeds in the wrong gardens. What another thinks of you does not dictate your value. A Fool’s Truth The Slow Dance Priorities Moon Landing Mistrust The Hostage Lovesick The Privilege A Reminder The BAC of Forgetting Goodbye Imperfect Awfully Sentimental Healthy Eating The Temple Unstoppable Overcome Wildflowers Courage A Healthy Heart The Hours The Match I cannot wait to read more poems written by the talented Beau Taplin!

    Can I start by saying this may be my favourite poetry book that I have read so far! It was absolutely beautiful! The words were…. perfect! I can’t think of another word to describe this masterpiece. I picked up this book when I was walking past the poetry section in my local bookstore and just felt drawn to it – so being me, I picked it up read a couple of pages and before I knew it I was at the counter buying this book along with a new set of fresh tabs ready to be put in all of my new favourit Can I start by saying this may be my favourite poetry book that I have read so far!

I’ve heard a few people talk about how they dislike that there is only one poem to a page (for most pages) and I have to say I disagree, I liked this aspect, it gives the poem its own page, so if I want to, I have the opportunity to write my own poem beside it and notes (yes – call me a monster – I felt so moved by this book that I wrote on it – I was feeling inspired, going to apologise to you all right now!). If you are going to pick up any poetry book in your lifetime please make it this one! It’s simply beautiful and has important advice and wisdom throughout it. This poetry really touched me and left me feeling… fulfilled? Content? Joyful? I’m not sure what the right word would be, but it left me whole and happy with life. Happy reading :) ~ Emelia

    A redundant, repetitive, cliché, cheesy, trying too-hard-to-be-inspirational, trying-too-hard-to-sound-wise type of “poetry and prose” collection. It's safe to say this book was not my cup of tea. Not my cup of anything, to be exact.

It's safe to say this book was not my cup of tea. Not my cup of anything, to be exact. The book was so unoriginal that I was seriously surprised the author didn’t have the words “live, laugh, love” written on one of the pages. The thing that bothers me the most about the book was that almost every single poem sounds the same. The same couple of themes come up with the same “lesson learned” because Taplin just loves to tell us what we should be feeling, thinking and doing with our lives and with our hearts. Lessons include: life is short, live it to the fullest (gee thanks, haven’t heard that one before) and love with all of your heart because – wait for it – life is too short and you should live it to the fullest (bet you didn’t see that one coming). Of course, Taplin doesn’t flat out say those exact words since he has this technique where he’ll repeat the same themes and lessons over and over by just changing up a few words in each poem. It’s cringe-worthy by the time you get halfway through the book and want to rip your hair out in frustration. It was outright painful to read at times – and not the “good kind” of pain you experience when you connect so deeply with the words you read in book that it tightens your heart and you feel your throat swelling up with emotions. The pain I experienced reading this book was more like “bloody freaking hell, he’s still talking about how to live life and how powerful the heart is and that we should follow our hearts and that love can hurt sometimes?” Don’t get me wrong. I like reading about these kinds of things but NOT like this. I like to read about experiences and stories and feel all the feelings the author describes. Sure, show me what you’re feeling about things but don’t make the mistake of telling me how I should feel about them. But Taplin’s poems were just cliché after cliché. I hate to say this (because I don’t like when people say this about poetry myself) but in my view, at least 80% of the “poems” in here aren’t poetry . Hate to be that person, but I don’t understand what is poetic about something like this: Healthy Eating: Let loose once in a while. Stay up too late, drink until you drop, order the dirtiest, fattiest, most delicious thing on the menu… Enough said.

    It was a satisfactory read. There were pieces that I highlighted. I find Worlds of You as a collection of hurting; healing, encouraging, inspiring, they were raw and honest pieces that anyone can connect with. There was friendship, relationships, growing up, changing. I appreciate them, I find them encouraging mostly too. Lastly, the cover design and the roses inside were aesthetically placed well. It makes gives the piece somewhat of a more dramatic flair.

Many of the poems provided a snapshot of life, an observation, presented a problem, and then it told me how to feel about it or what I should do or change. It did this directly, sucking any subtlety out of the writer/reader exchange. I don't like that because it kind of goes against how poetry is supposed to work. Poetry is supposed to be subtle, to explore the beauty of language in addition to the themes it explores, so when a poem just tells me what to think or do, it's really falling into the classic trap of telling instead of showing. I wanted Taplin to present an idea or problem or scene and show me what is right or wrong, and then give me the opportunity to feel and react and want to respond accordingly. This is poetry, not a persuasive essay with a thesis statement. There were some gems throughout the collection-- it's not like he fell into this trap on every poem-- but many of the less-problematic poems still were fairly run-of-the-mill, failing to take the chance to explore their themes with beautiful language and organization on the page or the like. The best poems showed me that Taplin certainly has the potential to be a very good poet, he just hasn't gotten there yet. Hopefully being a "social-media sensation" doesn't hold him back from realizing where his writing can improve and taking the steps to get there.

But I really did enjoy the rest of it. There's no denying I find Beau's writing beautiful. Lately when I'm reading modern poetry, I find myself connecting a lot with the work but not necessarily finding the writing to be pretty. But Taplin's I find to be really breathtaking at times. That being said, while I like his writing style I find it a bit inconsistent. I feel like I'm sometimes reading from two different styles within the same book. So that's why this is a three star for me; I liked a lot of the poems but don't know how I feel about the collection overall. I will definitely be reading more from him in the future though!

I also would love to see some longer pieces from Taplin! Some of the 5 line pieces read to me like the start of something bigger, and having been a fan of Beau's poetry for a while now it would be interesting to see if he will keep writing in the same style or if he'll branch out a bit in he future. Perhaps not the most varied or original book of poetry I've ever read, but it is the kind of beautiful collection of words I have come to expect from this poet so I was not let down. ♡

    Let’s be honest, this stuff isn’t real Edgar Allen Poe/ Shakespeare poetry but more like young adult relatable content/ thoughts. That doesn’t really matter though bc I’m too dumb for real poetry anyways.

    4.5* Beau Taplin's poetry speak so much to me, I can't explain it. I want to reread it constantly, I want to copy his poems downs in every notebook and diary I own, I want to write them on my hand with a pen, I want to memorize them, crawl into them, shout them at the top of my voice...
