I am excited to be taking part in the blog tour for Every Love by Jann Doe. It is a poetry collection and I am going to be sharing my thoughts on it for y’all today. I will also be leaving links to other blogs who have participated this week so you can check out all of their reviews as well.

My Rating: 5 stars
Love can be wholesome,
Healthy and pure.
It can also be deadly,
Of this I am sure.
I’ve experienced many,
I’ve opened my door.
Of all the love that I’ve held
There’s one thing I know,
Ain’t no one has loved
Quite like me… Jann Doe.
EVERY LOVE is a collection of poetry covering my own experiences in love. From abuse, to affair, to healthy commitment, I’ve experienced the dynamics of love… even suicide has played a part. The name ‘Jann Doe’ is to protect myself and my family from my own mistakes and history, given the parts of me that love has touched.
I’ve been reading poetry off and on for the past year or 2 and I still feel like I am new to poetry and I’m not very good at writing reviews for poetry collections but I will try my best.
Poetry tends to be hit or miss for me and I am so glad this one was a hit. I am about to prove to y’all how dumb I am when it comes to poetry but I have found that when poems rhyme I tend to enjoy them more and I tend to understand what the author is saying more. I’m sure there is a term that I should use but like I said I’m dumb lol.
Anyways I enjoyed reading this poetry collection and most of the poems resonated with me. There were a few poems that I didn’t connect with but there’s always bound to be some. I literally highlighted most of the poems when I was reading this and that hasn’t happened in a long time. While the poems are simple they have a huge impact with such few words.
As I said I really enjoyed reading this. I would definitely recommend it to mature audiences because there are some heavy topics discussed.
Jann Doe is a poet who recognizes and accepts her authenticity as a woman, and encourages other women to do the same. Everyone has their burdens to cary, their flaws to accept, and their strengths to pride themselves on. Jann’s goal as a poet is to speak out on behalf of other women across the globe to love themselves for who they truly are. No one is perfect, nor should we be. It’s imperative that we as women accept ourselves, and live for tomorrow… not by ignoring our past but by learning from it, and growing because of it.
