I enjoy reading poetry or I wouldn t have requested to read an ARC of this book Poetry is a very personal medium, and it either resonates with the reader or it doesn t Unfortunately, I found myself in the latter category with this collection.Every now and then a phrase would light me up with a Yes Wonderfully said but for the most part, I found the writing to be uneven and it did not draw me in as I had hoped My personal opinion, nothing.Many thanks to NetGalley and Andrew McMeel Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book in exchange for an unbiased review All opinions expressed are my own.

The first moment I read a poem from the book online on Google I knew I had to read this book and then I received this wonderful copy from Andrews Mcmeel I was hardly attracted at the cover of this book initially idk how many hours I thought why it had such a plain and simple cover but the moment I received this book I was amazed To say this book has the best and the most magnificent cover I have ever seen, it almost made my eyes shine and stands out of my entire book pile.After getting out of this breathe taking cover when I finally entered in to the interior with perfect font initially I was lazy reading long poems but then a realization of wanting striked me to read and I have no words to describe Amanda s style of writing it s totally different from all other poets All I found in the book was Amanda Torroni , Amanda Torroni and Amanda Torroni Such unique books are often pleasure to read The poems unlike usual instagram poetry or contemporary poetry are a combination of both of them The length and style depicts the wonderful fusion of these two styles which comes out really very well Another thing I loved was the creativity that was profound in each poem right from the idea to structural layout of the poems poems seem to appealing when they please eyes as well The book is divided into five sections according to the phases of the moon namely full, gibbous, quarter, crescent and new Most of the poems are wonderful but to a part I felt I was unable to connect to some percent of the book so much that I almost understood nothing about a few poems otherwise the book is a totally different experience from rest of the poetry books.Here s something from the back cover although I liked the inner content much Things I learnedfrom themoon at times youmay feel likea sliver ofyourself.There isbeautyin thistoo Also to critise a little I disliked the upper case titles, I wished they were lower cased so that the book would have been a perfection in all ways.Book cover 5 5Content 4 5Overall rating 4 5 I was expecting quality poetry based off of what I read on Torroni s Instagram page prior to purchasing She transcends the cellphone screen with captivating diction, historical references, and magnificent storytelling with metaphors and allusions worth their weight in gold Also, I was impressed with the size and design of the book White book with a gloss cover lifetime of chaste wonder Poet at heart, sticking to thematic chapbook length poetrysomeone I can fully support in their creative endeavors. 3.5 I really have a Love Hate relationship with this book For one I always like to thank the author for sharing your words with me everyone I really loved some of these poems What can I say about your love on my darkest nights it brings out the stars in me WOW what a quote like this made the whole book for me Because that is the very epitome of love What would Tesla think of our spark I felt like that sentence was so genius I found myself bookmarking poems and highlighting sentences Which is exactly what I was looking for in this book of poems However I did struggle , I did feel like some of the poems where trying to hard The overuse of big words took away from the beautiful points of the poem It made it hard to read It took me a while to get into this book but when I finally did I really did I found myself remembering old loves and friendships moments in life But again I struggled honestly with the flow of this book Most of the poems did not spark inspiration in me or move me to action But I will definitely continue to follow her and see where this author goes from here. I m not that big on modern poetry, but one of my goals this year is to try and read widely, so what started as me absently looking at the display section in the bookstore ended with me deciding to take a chance on Stargazing at Noon Honestly, a good portion of the poems definitely didn t click with me I get abstract, but some of these were too much so and seemed to make little sense but there were other truly lovely pieces about grief and falling in love, as well as ones about encouragement Some of my favorites were Pop Rocks Soda Pop, The Brightest Thing, Long Days, Meaningless Nights, Love You Better, There is Nothing to See Here, Singularities, Dear Mom, Philippians 2 14 15, and HiraethBut maybe if we re compassionate,if we praise and complain less,maybe if we re generous,if we give and take less,maybe if we re altruists, virtuous,if we practice kindness, evolve,master our own faults, our own flawsmaybe then,we can be forgiven.Maybe then,we can shine brighter than the rest 5I was provided with the ARC by netgalley All thoughts and opinions are my own Things I learned from the moon at times you may feel like a sliver of yourself There is beauty in this too.This is a beautiful book of poetry with most poems being analogy of space, stars, the moon or the tides The poems are of love, loss, death and grief and are so well written Most of the poetry is quiet long but it is a wonderful read. Amanda Torroni made me listen to classical music while reading this book And it was an uplifting experience for me.Stargazing at Noon was such a lyrical book for me It had managed to blend the atmospheric and theme the universe, kismet, fate, science, astrology, art, history, to the closest take of a slice of life From these tales of life and blending it all together with love, loss, grief, and joy It s eloquence shows, nothing forced.It was wonderfully articulate which makes it like it is easy to relate with even of an inexperienced area as a reader That state of feeling of understanding what the piece is conveying and through wonderful subject matters To sum it simply the metaphors used was on point.I highlighted a lot from Stargazing at Noon here is oneGENTLE WAKES, VIOLENT WAVESI m going to come inhabitthe space against your chest listen to your heartbeatwith stethoscope ears hum what I hearunder my breath going under, going under.never coming up Gentle wakes violent waves,I will love you either way.Hold you while the fever breaksHold you the whole way through mayday mayday mayday I said that I will hold you.And works to note of LOVE LUNACYTHE EINSTEIN ROSEN BRIDGEFINE IN THE FIFTIES SENSECOURAGE A COMPASSMore Stargazing at Noon Instagram Twitter Ko Fi
