    ... ... ... What the hell did I just read, and who picked this rotten piece of tripe up and put it on the best seller wall? How in the hell did this dude get a book contract? I mean, other than the slow downward spiral of modern book publishing always looking for a viral hit...

Love Her Wild, is "Instagram poetry" which means it is short and insipid (the short part being the only good thing about this book). Admittedly, Instagram poetry doesn't have to be bad. I should be less caustic about the idea as a whole, but Atticus' verbiage is just a bunch of crappy Facebook memes wrapped up in an a beautiful package. That just makes the book's existence more offensive as better books deserve the production treatment that this one got. There is nothing new in this volume. It's all about love and life and being free, things people have written about since time immemorial with much more beautiful language and much deeper insights. This is poetry that makes you feel good because it says nothing. It's pablum. It's the Doritos of the poetry world. It's the stuff your relatives used to send in email forwards with midi files attached. It's barely fucking poetry. Buy a Hallmark card and you can get the same placid, meaningless nonsense. Poetry has developed a bad reputation for being indecipherable, but Love Her Wild swings in the opposite direction. Some of the shorter pieces have probably starred on fortune cookie papers. If you are interested in poetry, go into your local bookstore, close your eyes, pick literally ANYTHING off the shelf, and you'll be rewarded with something better. Find poetry that ignites something deeper than a sense of YOLO.

He's young, drives the ladies/fellas crazy, wears a mask (oh, so mysterious), and to top it all off, he was praised by a Victoria Secret model. I'd say he has collectively created a unique brand for himself. That being said, to give this anything more than 2.5 stars would be misleading because the above-mentioned has nothing to do with the actual quality of his poems. The vocabulary used throughout this collection is simple. Nothing wrong with that. But if you're going to go the simple route and use short stanzas, then you better make sure those two-liners are somewhat impressionable. Unfortunately, these poems did nothing to stimulate my brain, in fact, majority of them made me gag. However, I will admit that the cover and corresponding imagery in this book is very aesthetically pleasing. But WHY are these poems so overhyped? I once wrote a poem about sausages and potatoes at the tender age of 13 that was more emotionally provoking than some of these poems. (sorry if that made you salivate) All in all, I understand that poetry is subjective, so take my review as a grain of salt if you will; but I am quite surprised by the amount of 5-star reviews on here because none of these poems are revolutionary by any means. Here is an example of a poem that I liked: “I hope to arrive to my death, late, in love, and a little drunk.” Not bad, right? Sadly, I only liked two other poems. Here is an example of a poem that made me gag: "She was just another broken doll dreaming of a boy with glue.” *barfs* Grab a bucket because this book is gunna make you cringe like you've never cringed before. If you enjoy Atticus' style of poetry, that's great, but I think I will stick with my Edgar Allan Poe, William Ernest Henley etc. P.S. If you agree with my review, then please, say a silent prayer to the Poet Lord asking him to prevent possible collaborations between Atticus and Rupi Kaur. JESUS, that would send me over the edge!

    this book isn’t horrible. it was quick and fun, light and easy. but every poem was just sooo short and seemed overly simplified. there were a handful of clever ones, but the majority of these just read like sentences in a greeting card or really dated, cheesy sayings. i really only enjoyed the last section that was about going out and living your best life, because the previous sections about romance were just so cliché and corny. however, the pictures in this were GORGEOUS and went really well a this book isn’t horrible. it was quick and fun, light and easy. but every poem was just sooo short and seemed overly simplified. there were a handful of clever ones, but the majority of these just read like sentences in a greeting card or really dated, cheesy sayings. i really only enjoyed the last section that was about going out and living your best life, because the previous sections about romance were just so cliché and corny. however, the pictures in this were GORGEOUS and went really well alongside the poem. i added a star just for them.

    With all of the creepers and perverts being featured on the news these days, it was breathtaking and awe-inspiring to find this new collection of poetry by a man named Atticus, published just this year.

I don't know who or what Atticus is, or if his mother was Hera, Athena or Aphrodite or what, but, clearly she was a goddess who did an incredible job of raising a righteous and creative young man. Atticus's poetry is a celebration of the feminine EVERYTHING, a nod to the captivating allure of women and the PRIVILEGE it can be to find yourself in the presence of such beauty. And, it was wonderful for me, a woman, to be reminded that the world is also full of beautiful men who love and cherish women for the playful, complicated and stunning creatures they are. Men who would never harm a woman or take anything from her by force. Men who help women put on their coats, brush the errant hairs from their eyes, and are attentive to their protection and well-being, even in their sleep. This is gorgeous, lush, quotable poetry, and, in case my review hasn't communicated it yet. . . incredibly and ridiculously romantic, too. Wow. What a collection. She was the most beautiful complicated thing I'd ever seen-- a tangled mess of silky string-- and all I wanted of life was to sit down cross-legged and untie her knots.

    I would not recommend this book, but be careful if you agree with me. I published a negative review on Amazon under my real name, and the author or one of his fans searched for my name in order to harass me on my personal account (ironically calling me a troll for having a negative opinion while using my real name, while they created fake Facebook accounts). Luckily they caused no lasting damage, but be aware that negative reviews of this book may be retaliated against.

Luckily they caused no lasting damage, but be aware that negative reviews of this book may be retaliated against. As for the book, I was surprised that I didn't enjoy it. I am an avid poetry fan, both of more classical poetry and of modern poets who tweak the genre. The reviews on this book were so overwhelmingly positive, I felt confident purchasing it. Perhaps I should have done more research and found the author's Instagram before purchasing, and you would do well to do so, it is very illustrative of the type of writing you will find in this compilation. Personally, I will say that I don't think the author's ideas are new and I don't think he is exploring them with language that is particularly revolutionary. To me, a poet must do one of these two, and preferably the latter. Poetry is about language. You can't just add line breaks to any thought that pops out of your head and call it a poem. I didn't feel that anything about his language was purposeful or complex, and therefore his poetry fell quite flat. Here are a couple examples of the words in this book. These were some of the first I flipped randomly to-- I didn't scour to find the worst of the worst, rather these are representative of the writing you will find in the whole: "I LIVE/MY LIFE/SO/HAPPILY/IN/CRAZY/WITH/HER." "I feel/like girls/who drink/whiskey/tell/good/stories." Etc. Ad nauseum. Further, even the quotes contained within the positive reviews make me cringe. I agree with another reviewer, that while sometimes poetry is criticized for being too obscure, this book swings entirely to the other end of the pendulum. However, if there is something that speaks to you about these pithy aphorisms, by all means purchase and enjoy this book. Or, instead, buy any anthology of short poems which contains a multiple authors. I promise, they will contain many more complex ideas and wonderfully complicated language than this book. I normally do not leave harsh reviews, however the reviews on this book being so overwhelmingly positive was part of the reason I purchased this book, and I wanted to provide a different perspective. I am concerned that part of the reason the reviews are as overwhelmingly positive as they are is because the author or his fans retaliate against negative reviews. I am hoping this is not the case, and I am the first and last person this has happened to, but it does bear wondering.

    The poems in this collection are generic and unoriginal. It definitely lacks the substance. I enjoy reading modern poetry as long as it gives me the feels. Unfortunately, this one was a let down except for the photographs which I find stunning.

    Well, combining some cheesy phrases with some form of art (photography, in this case) seems to be the latest trend in poetry.

Or is it that no one actually writes quality poems anymore? Not that I’m a poetry expert, but still, I believe I have the literal sense to distinguish good from the bad ones. Following the trend of Rupi Kaur’s infamous poetry style, this book has poems that barely lasts 4 lines, or comprise short paragraphs at times, with no repeated pattern whatsoever. The topic is pretty much the same old Love. “Love could be labeled poison and we’d drink it anyways.” ~This girl who is the most beautiful one. ~This girl who has no idea she’s the best thing ever. “The world is made up of too many girls wondering if they are pretty and too many boys too shy to tell them” ~This girl who breaks hearts. ~This girl who has no idea she breaks hearts. “It’s not the fear of losing them that scares us, It’s that we have given them many of our pieces That we fear fear losing ourselves when they are gone." ~This girl who dreams unattainable things. ~This girl who is the centre of the universe. "She was too busy wishing on the shooting stars to see the dreams come true around her" Blah. Blah. Blah. I’m not sure if the pieces were original at all. All of the lines felt too familiar to be original. And the accompanying pictures didn’t seem to play any significant role. What the author meant to convey through this book is still alien to me. Despite everything, it was quick, short read. Yeah it wasn’t mind blowing, and I didn’t expect it to be. Yeah there were some lines I found to be good. But no, if you are a poetry lover, you may want to avoid reading this book. If you are a newbie, well then, no one’s stopping you. 2.5/5 stars

    This book is lovely! I went in with moderate expectations and was pleasantly surprised. The pictures in between and accompanying the poetry added a little extra magic to it. I'm already looking forward to rereading it on another quiet day.

    "She was afraid of heights, but she was much more afraid of never flying." I fucking loved this. I've been in the mood to read some poetry lately and I've heard nothing but good things about this poetry collection, so I decided to give it a go, and I am so impressed and stunned by how much I loved this. Sure, some of these poems are forgettable and pretentious and not that great, but there are so many amazing and gorgeous poems. I love that this collection is divided into three sections: Love, "She was afraid of heights, but she was much more afraid of never flying." I fucking loved this.

Sure, some of these poems are forgettable and pretentious and not that great, but there are so many amazing and gorgeous poems. I love that this collection is divided into three sections: Love, Her, and Wild. The first section has poems all centered around love, the second section is all poems about a girl and all include the word 'her' or 'she', and then the last section 'wild' includes poems about life and youth and everything else. This collection features some truly stunning black and white photography that fits the mood of the poems so well. "Love could be labeled poison and we'd drink it anyways." I listened to Taylor Swift's new album reputation while I read this and it really made it the perfect experience for me and probably contributed to how much I loved this book, not gonna lie. I know a lot of people probably don't like these poems because some of them are so simple and basic, but I really enjoyed almost all of them. In the goodreads description this book is said to have the most "tattoo-able" quotes which is something I definitely agree with. I definitely feel the urge to tattoo half of these poems. There are so many gorgeous quotes about love and life and youth, you really just have to read it for yourself to know, but here are some of my favorites: "Depression is being color blind and constantly being told how colorful the world is." "We let our lives mix with our dreams like two colored paints until we don't know which was what and we didn't care." "Love is diving headfirst into someone else's confusion and finding that it all makes sense." "She was cool - the whole world seemed to spin around her in smooth jazz." "A sky full of stars and he was staring at her." "I woke up from the daydream of my twenties in a cold sweat, anxious for all the lives I hadn't lived." If any of these quotes sound beautiful or interesting to you then I strongly suggest picking up this book, I was really inspired and blown away by how much I enjoyed this. Definitely my favorite collection of poetry I've read so far; these poems really made me feel.

    I follow Atticus Poetry in Instagram, because it's nice to come across a positive, loving thought in a nice font. Taken as a large group like this is, and listening to them, is just not the way they are meant to be consumed. In this format they don't feel like poems, but idealistic thoughts.

Here's an example of a longer one: "Love is throwing yourself into a stormy sea, hoping there are arms to catch you, knowing that without the leap there is only the safe and lonely shore." There are a lot of poems about "watching her sleep" and "not being afraid" of love but because the sentiments are so short there is not a lot of space for depth - or more accurately the depth opportunity is not taken advantage of. It might be that I'm just too damn old. But I've liked the book versions of other social media poets, so I'm not sure that's it exactly. Maybe I'm too deep. ;) Thanks to the publisher who provided a review copy in exchange for an honest review. This title is now available.

    Poetry to me is stumbling in the dark searching for the right words to describe the feeling I get when she smiles while she sleeps. *Right in the feels* Love is diving headfirst into someone else’s confusion and finding that it all makes sense.

    *whispers* so bad that milk and honey read like a masterpiece. heteronormative through and through also some of the 'poems' were offensive. like the one saying brushing a girl's hair behind her ear is better than any drugs. hmmm say what. then when he said depression is like being color blinded and everyone keeps telling how colorful is the world around you. are you sure boy to sum it up this is like john green for poetry and if you swing that way then yes this one is absolutely for you.

    “LOVE COULD BE LABELED POISON AND WE’D DRINK IT ANYWAYS.” I really enjoyed this! I loved MOST of the poems and I also loved the photography! I tabbed so many quotes and thought that it was a wonderful collection that I would for sure recommend to others. You guys know that I read a lot of mental health novels and poetry. So if I see something I have to call it out, even though it seemed small this quote bothered me: “Brushing a girl’s hair behind her ear once a day will solve more problems tha “LOVE COULD BE LABELED POISON AND WE’D DRINK IT ANYWAYS.” I really enjoyed this!

You guys know that I read a lot of mental health novels and poetry. So if I see something I have to call it out, even though it seemed small this quote bothered me: “Brushing a girl’s hair behind her ear once a day will solve more problems than all those therapists and drugs.” It's probably not meant to be taken to seriously but I just could not ignore it... It is important for everyone to know that if you are struggling from a mental illness, that a significant other will NOT solve ALL your problems. It just irked me how this short poem turns down therapy and drugs which is an important part in recover for people who suffer. You can't just stop going to treatment because you have a significant other, like no! That one poem is why I can't give this collection a full five stars which may seem silly but I would not be who I am if I didn't mention something like that. For the record though,the collection than says things like: “Don't ask her to be a rock for you to lean upon instead, build her wings and point her to the sky and she will teach you both to fly.” and “She walked through her life heavy from the mighty wings upon her back.” and “There is nothing prettier in the whole wide world than a girl in love with every breath she takes.” Which all completely contradict the poem that I had an issue with. For the majority this book is filled with beautiful poems and art. It does show female empowerment as times which I always love to see. My little rant makes me sound like I hated this but I really didn't. Aside from my issue with that one poem, this could have been a five star read for me. Nonetheless, I would still highly recommend this as a beautiful poetry collection.

    okay, as a whole, i would NEVER recommend this. listen to me. there are some good poems here, but there is just so much trash too. and the good parts aren't worth the trash. the parts that made me feel something were the handwritten ones - not only were some of the best, they felt meaningful and so i felt affected by them. and then. you see something like this: Sometimes I want a quiet life other times I want to go a little bit fucking Gatsby. i mean...this is poetry? i wonder how much time it took him okay, as a whole, i would NEVER recommend this. listen to me. there are some good poems here, but there is just so much trash too. and the good parts aren't worth the trash. the parts that made me feel something were the handwritten ones - not only were some of the best, they felt meaningful and so i felt affected by them. and then. you see something like this: Sometimes I want a quiet life other times I want to go a little bit fucking Gatsby. i mean...this is poetry? i wonder how much time it took him to come up with that. if it was over a minute thats just embarrassing im sorry but what the heck I fought my eyes to stay awake no dream was prettier than the way she slept. this is lowkey real creepy. it's like borderline edward cullen stalking creepy, except worse bc u can actually sleep but ur choosing to like not so u can stare at her. umm. no thank you. i will not feel the feels from this creepy vibes here's the poem that annoyed me the fucking most: Brushing a girl’s hair behind her ear once a day will solve more problems than all those therapists and drugs. HOLY SHIT! I CAN'T BELIEVE HE'S CURED ALL MENTAL ILLNESSES! ALL WE EVER NEEDED TO DO WAS TUCK A GIRL'S HAIR BEHIND HER EAR!! wow! how did NO one figure that out? shit, all the people who need medication for the chemical imbalance in their brains should just throw it away. bc like fuck having a way to live your life despite ur illness and having people help u through it right? and it's really fuckin annoying bc later he says: Youth came over me like a mad storm. I was helpless to the chemicals roaring in my brain. so...he gets that our brains are sometimes our worst enemies and YET he still publishes a poem being shitty about therapists and medication for ~the indie aesthetic~ okay as for the thing that made me give it 2 stars! the handwritten ones. look how good this is : We are astrologers of bodies and mind searching for truths in each other's stars. like, that's not bad. i will pay him $5 to keep writing handwritten things

    Poetry's magic is that it is found when it's needed. Love Her Wild is full of short but nice poems that are complemented by pictures. Though not my favourite poetry book, it was still very enjoyable.

    This book is a collection of what I'm going to call "Modern Poetry". Think Milk and Honey, and others of that ilk.

    Honestly don't know why I keep doing this to myself. I know I don't like modern poetry, but damn does the aesthetic of these collections get me every time. Every time I pick up one of these collections, it's like reading tumblr posts that have been regurgitated over and over again. None of it seems all that original or was all that inspiring. Plus, this collection had photography, but I don't wanna know how much they spent on StockPhoto because they all seemed like things I've seen before?

There were a few poems that sparked my interest or I felt I could get behind. The rest were just so-so and I hate saying that about poetry, but I know it's MY taste that makes me dislike this, not because it might not be good.

    Myslím, že básníci minulých století se musí obracet v hrobech. Přátelé, Love Her Wild je blbost bez hloubky (jen věty rozdělené na několik řádků), děsí mě, co tato doba považuje za hezkou poezii. Edit: Ale vyjde to česky, tak je možné, ze tomu fakt nerozumím. :D

    The poetry was very meh, but I am 100% down with his aesthetic.

    I finished this in 20 minutes lol but i actually really liked it. I think i dog eared about 18 pages because i really liked those pieces, but overall i thought it was quite a nice collection. I loved the ones about love, they made me smile. I haven't read many poetry books written by a male writer, and to read this one, with so much appreciation and awe for the girl he loves, was just wonderful. None of the poems were sad or depressing, even if some were meant to be about heartbreak. It's defini I finished this in 20 minutes lol but i actually really liked it.

None of the poems were sad or depressing, even if some were meant to be about heartbreak. It's definitely a light read about love and life, so it might not be everyone's cup of tea because a lot of the poems feel cliche like you've probably read them somewhere. But if you don't intend to get in too deep or anything then this is wonderful. Some favourites; -I think it's beautiful the way you sparkle when you talk about the things you love. -The beautiful thing about young love is the truth in our hearts that it will last forever. -Poetry to me is scrambling in the dark searching for the right words to describe the feeling i get when she smiles when she sleeps. - My sweet darling, all these tears, this hurt, the pain in your heart, do not fight it anymore, it is a gift, you see, to feel this much and even though it's hard it means you're alive with each of these tearful breaths gasped your soul awakens, more alive in the pain than you were in the numb, you are coming back to me now, my love, lucid in this darkness– so cry aloud, yell, and fall, and i will be here waiting to catch you when the waking up is done. -Watch carefully the magic that occurs when you give a person enough comfort to just be themselves. -The words never meant much that's not how I loved, it was when she stroked my hair when she thought i was asleep that I knew she really did -Obsession is not love, infatuation is not love, when someone ignores you or treats you poorly, carelessly, or with indifference that's not love– that's a lack of love, for yourself, for trying to fill your missing pieces with theirs but when someone is whole and you are whole and you act in kindness and benevolence, vulnerability through strength, love becomes and exchange with another person– and that is its truest form.

    "Words will scratch more hearts than swords" This book turned up at my door, and I devoured it within an hour. This is a poetry collection that talks about love and loss and so often I related to what was read or something resonated with me and I ended up tabbing so many beautiful quotes. Besides the beautiful writing, there are black & white images to accompany the poems and this collection just feels really polished & well put together PRO's -so pretty -quotable -relatable -a nice quick r "Words will scratch more hearts than swords" This book turned up at my door, and I devoured it within an hour.

    “There’s too much risk in loving,” the young boy said. “No,” said the old man, “there’s too much risk in not.” A nice collection of modern poetry accompanied by stunning photographs. I liked around half of the poems - mostly the ones about falling and being love. These were light, tender and made me feel something. The rest of them were mostly generic and unoriginal. I'd recommend it if you like modern poetry.

    This was so beautiful ! Some poems were very relatable and others just gripping and beautiful ! Definitely the best poetry book I've read so far ! “We let our lives mix with our dreams like two colored paints until we didn’t know which was what and we didn’t care."

    Short, adolescent Tumblr poems that are closer to platitudes. I listened to the audiobook, which was a brief 40 minutes, and it was an odd experience. The poems were cliché and should have stayed on the internet.
