This is How I Die Review

    A trend seems to be emerging...and that's collected poems. Which are, by definition, poems that have appeared in other works, now collected into another, larger work. Especially as a self-pub'd author, it's very hard to sell your work the first time around, let alone again in a different, higher priced form. HOWEVER - Kat Savage understands her readers - because she loves them. In this collected work, Savage made sure to give her readers who may already own the previous work, a new experience.

HOWEVER - Kat Savage understands her readers - because she loves them. In this collected work, Savage made sure to give her readers who may already own the previous work, a new experience. In this collection, she includes sketches and artwork and shows the work in an entirely new light. I would recommend this to both anyone who has never read Savage and those, like me, who have read her for many years.

    I always feel bad because Poetry takes me so long to get through but it's because I think you need to take your time and savor each piece for what it is. This is How I Die is Kat Savage's work put into one book that flows and takes you on an adventure through her heart. I always appreciate her work because it makes me feel and always pulls me in. I will always buy Kat Savage's work :)

    Kat has such a way with words. I know that's ridiculous to say. You'd expect anyone who has the stones to publish a book to have that. But, maaaan, her talent is just... I have no words. Every piece in this book is so visceral, so well thought out, so right down in your soul. I found myself stopping and just staring at the pages so many times, looking for my name in them, because they were clearly written for me. I'm sure you will too. To have that kind of universality to your work is so rare. T Kat has such a way with words. I know that's ridiculous to say. You'd expect anyone who has the stones to publish a book to have that.

    I never considered myself a poetry kind of person. Heck, I was never much of a reader. To me, Poetry was always a rhyming, "roses are red" kind of thing. I was so so wrong. I have since re-discovered poetry and much of that credit goes to Kat Savage. Her words reached through the pages, and touched my very protected heart. I saw myself and my life in so many of her poems. I don't know her personally, but it is obvious that her writing is from deep down in her soul.

She didn't just give us a glimpse into her heart, she opened it wide open for us all to read. I felt like I was reading her journal and what she was enduring at different points in her life. After each one, I would sit and think about it before I could move on. I love when I find a writer who speaks to my soul and that is exactly what she did with her powerful words. Everyone needs to have this in their library.

    I read this collection of poems slowly because I wanted to absorb all the emotion they emitted. Kat Savage is simply a wizard with words. I was mesmerized by her talent and the way the words seemed to flow effortlessly on the page. My heart felt almost every emotion it can handle while reading. I can't gush enough. This was a beautifully executed and I'm so glad I was able to read it. I'll will carry so many of her words with me, most likely on my skin.

    I love her work. She is incredibly talented. Her poems are so easy to relate to and so eloquently speak the words and feelings I could never articulate.

I have only in the last year gotten into enjoying poetry and to find someone who can make me feel that way and draw me in for the full experience is amazing!This is a fabulous collection and I highly recommend it!I was given an eBook copy from the author to review.

    As always, I enjoyed reading Kat Savage's collection of poems. I received this book in exchange for an honest review, and I can honestly say that her words are raw and real.It feels as though Kat has cut open her heart and bled all over the pages. And once we get through all the chaos, we get a glimpse of the beauty left behind. I loved the way the poems seemed to progress, from a broken poet to one who has finally found happiness. I can't wait to read more!
