‘Crack of Dawn’ will eventually tell a story about the girl and her love life


The author of this book gave me an e-book version in exchange for an honest review. I was a literary writer and editor back in college, so I was truly excited to delve into this book.

Crack of Dawn is a poetry book about a girl and her journey to falling in love. Reading it was a refreshing change of scene, since the books I read are either really long and emotional (and overwhelming!). It was nice to read something light and short, plus the illustrations were really fun and added more impact and feel into the different pieces.

There were poems that I really liked, pieces that really managed to kick me in the heart. However, there were also pieces that were a little too vague for me, and so, it gave off a feeling of disconnection. Also, there were some poems that didn’t quite get to me as much as I wanted because it contained ornate words that were actually distracting. So, instead of feeling and understanding the message that the poem was trying to convey, I was busy trying to make sense of that one word instead.

Other than that, the book was entertaining enough and reading through the protagonist’s perspective was fun. The poems really focused on the girl’s newfound feelings and experiences about love. I’m sure those who are into romance and love will adore this poetry book. This book was released last July 2018, so you can already get your own copy!
