BOOK REVIEW: September Love By Lang Leav
I just finished reading September Love by Lang Leav last week. So today, I'm going to share my review of the book with you guys. Now let's begin with the author's bio...

ABOUT SEPTEMBER LOVE
September Love (SL) is not a novel. It is a book of poetry. SL is Leav's latest poetry book. Leav wrote this book in 2020, during the early pandemic season. All poetries in this book are related to our life experiences and were inspired by Leav's online conversation with her fans.
In SL, Leav shared with us poetries that are inspiring, heartwarming, comforting, enlightening, and empowering. SL is a book that will positively change the way we think about life, love, relationships, heartbreaks, and self-empowerment. This book also includes a foreword by Hollywood actress, Lili Reinhart.
MY REVIEW OF SEPTEMBER LOVE
To me, SL is a very beautiful poetry book. Leav's writing is as awesome as always. Reading SL gives me a very heartwarming and comforting feeling. Reading this book also puts a smile on my face ^_^
I believe SL is an eye-opener for all of us. It tells us that love, relationships, and heartbreaks are normal experiences that we all have, will, and must face in life.
Love and relationships can be sweet. But sometimes, love and relationships can also be painful and leads to heartbreaks. I know that some of us are scared of love, relationships, and heartbreaks. In fact, I was also scared of these three things when I was in my teenage years and early 20s. However, these three things are good life experiences. They give us important life lessons and mature us as a person.
In SL, Leav also tells us that a bad past should not influence our present and future. We all must always be positive and move on. We must also be able to see good things in bad situations. After all, things happened for a reason. Plus, we learned something and grow from our experiences. Experiences are our best teachers.
Besides good writing, this book also has a lovely cover. The illustration of a girl looking outside of the window has a deep meaning of what is inside the book. The illustration also tells us that there's always a light and hope in every darkness. I can also relate the illustration and the whole content of this book with the pandemic season. During this pandemic, we all are praying, searching, and hoping for a light in this darkness. Insya'Allah, this pandemic will end soon. This pandemic has also taught us a lot of important life lessons.
Overall, I rate September Love 10/10. I highly recommend this book to my bookworm friends who love poetry and looking for something light, heartwarming and comforting to read.
Ok, that's all for now. But before I end this post, I would like to ask you guys for some suggestions on poetry books. After reading September Love, I became interested to read more poetry books. So can you guys please suggest to me a good poetry book? I'm looking for both- English and Bahasa Malaysia poetry books.
Thank you for reading. Hope to see you guys again soon.
