Review of “Pieces of Mel” by Melina Turner

In the debut poetry collection of Melina Turner we are exposed to a plethora of different styles and topics of some pretty awesome poetry.

I admire anyone that can put poetry out there for the world to see. Unlike some of the fictional novels that we all know and love, poetry can be super personal. It’s literally like putting your diary out there for everyone to look at.

“Pieces of Mel” captures poetry written at different stages of the poet’s life. Som

Pieces Of Mel was a very interesting book on a variety of poems written by author Melina Turner throughout the years. Many of the poems reflected events that Melina had lived through, and a vast majority brought tears to my eyes. Some even made me cry. Melina has her way of writing the poems that make the meanings different for each poem even if they were similar in writing. The poems were very heartfelt and I can tell that the author really put her heart into them. They were extremely well wri ...more

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

This is a collection of poetry written from the heart of the author.

I find reading poetry to be a very difficult and subjective experience, which is why I very rarely pick up poetry books. This is one genre I struggle to read and relate to. However, I decided to give this book a try.

I started to read the poems and found myself quickly becoming depressed by how they made me feel. I understand that poetry i

Pieces of Mel is a collection of poems spanning various themes. I admire anyone that can put up their poems for the world to see. Unlike most novels, poems tend to be far more personal and show the writer's vulnerable side.

Through this collection of poems you can see the writer's journey through different phases of her life. It allows you a look at snippets of her life as she sees it - The questions burning in her mind, the moments that have shaped who she is, the things she has seen, the person

Pieces of Mel Poetry Collection One is an amazing book of poetry. As I read through each poem I felt as if I was getting a little piece of the author. These poems are not just words on paper; they are like their own little stories. I really enjoyed reading them and had about 40 favorites. I finally had to stop marking because they were quickly all becoming favorites, but I did finally choose six that really spoke to me. They are She Doesn’t Know He’s Gone, The Little Princess, Surrendering To Th ...more

AMAZING

I could really relate to some of this author's poems. The grabbed my heart, stomped on it, then proceeded to place it back. These poems are extremely addicting and I had no choice but read them, because I just had to know what the next poem would be about. This author has a magnificent writing style that kept me wanting more. I love the way the poems flowed. I highly recommend this amazing book of poems to all. There will for sure be one that you can relate too and stay in your heart fore

This poetry collection has a wide range of interesting themes. There were some poems I could relate to more than others, for example:"Hummingbird (2014)," "Little Pieces Of Mel," and "I'm... (2011). Remember when you read poetry these are pieces of someone's soul. There were a few poems I had a difficult time understanding. It was frustrating. I couldn't decide if I agreed with the artist's viewpoint, or not. I struggle, with, religion, due to my own, love of diversity and liberalism.

I loved this poetry collection. I love how they're all different. Some of them I felt like I could relate, even if it was just one little part of a poem. I can't believe I almost didn't buy this book, honestly. I might have to start reading everything by this author. I'm looking forward to reading the next collection.
