Beautiful. I listened to the audiobook and cried for the entire 40 minutes. Hearing her read it is an amazing experience. My favorite poems were LA who am i to love you, Bare feet on linoleum, Salamander, Sport cruiser, and Violet bent backwards over the grass. No one does melancholy like Lana.

Somewhere between Woodstock and Twin Peaks
Lives a lonely angel, who was once named Lizzy

She is overfull of love and longing
A nostalgic ache of unbelonging

Sometimes she writes a line that's kind of cringe
But one masterpiece takes a thousand mistakes
And she's the master of every piece she makes

Her words are incantations of feminine fire
She writes of hope and pain, revenge and magic
A mysterious and ageless witch, beautifully tragic

She is overfull of love and longing
A nostalgic ache of unbelonging

Somewhere between Woodstock and Twin Peaks
Lives a lonely angel, who was once named Lizzy

First I just have to preface this review by saying that I am a huge fan of Lana Del Rey. She is one of my all time favorite singers and I’ve been in love with her music for years. I’ve always resonated well with her songs so that made me super eager to read her poetry.

This poetry collection is very atmospheric. Reading the poems is like being transported to a sunny and dreamy day in LA. It’s very on brand for Lana Del Rey.

I liked how a lot of the poems had substance. A lot of poetry collections nowadays have very short poems so I was glad to see that this one had long ones. I really liked how a lot of the longer poems told a story.

Additionally, I liked how there were some haikus (my favorite type of poem) and that they were separated in their own section.

The book itself is also incredibly gorgeous. Throughout the book are photos taken by Lana Del Rey herself. The photos are really beautiful and add to the overall vibe of the collection. The poems themselves are presented exactly as Lana had typed them out making the book feel really personal.

Lastly, I loved the Notes For A Poet section, which was a lined section where the reader could write their own thoughts/notes/poems. I thought that was just a brilliant touch.

Overall, I loved the poems in this collection just as much as I loved the overall presentation of the book!
