Taken from 'Belle':
'She sacrifices her freedom, her most treasured possession, for her father. She stands out from the crowd and reads in a time where education for women was unheard of. Her kindness and willingness to give to others is where her true beauty lies.
And yet, in the fairytales we tell our children, we first introduce her as beautiful rather than fierce, kind, independent, intelligent, giving, full of light and powerful. Even her name is a testament to outward beauty.'

I went into this not knowing what to expect from the author, especially after a bit disconnected with the ...more
5 More Words: Beauty, art, control, feminism, fairytales.
This was absolutely incredible. Breathtaking. Captivating. Haunting. I just can't get my words into an appropriate semblance of sense to actually review it.
“And if they berate you and push you down, and break you and tell you over and over again how you are not enough, remember how Pluto had once dissolved to being nothingness and is fighting its way back into being a planet again.”
There was so much feels while reading this poetry book. And I can’t coherent the words how to describe this beautiful art. This poetry tells all the heartaches, self-love and being strong no matter how hard the challenges are.
This was my first poetry book written by Niki ...more

"You cannot burn away what has always been aflame"
Nikita Gill can certainly write. Her poems are unique, personal and I can say that a good number of them I could relate to. I had to reread a few of them to understand them fully, as a couple are told like they are going round in a circle. The theme ...more

It is no surprise that Nikita Gill, Instagram poetry sensation, has released a collection of poetry focused on female empowerment. Gill is recognized for her short, powerful poetry that liken women to wolves, storms, and protective anger against the forces that seek to harm and destroy us. Wilder Embers has poetry for the mind and body, giving readers powerful verses about self-love and breaking the chains we've been locked into. Th ...more
that are the same age as the universe, and because we are matter,
we can never be destroyed. That a part of us will live forever and ever,
and that in making us the universe was celebrating itself,
we are its living, breathing joy.
After reading this collection of poetry, I was left feeling strong like a warrior, worthy, inspired and empowered. Why this poet hasn't received as much recognition as 🍯"She Who Must Not Be Named" 🐝 ...more
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Wild Ember is a collection of poetry and prose written by Nikita Gill. This was my first experience reading anything from this author and I highly enjoyed it. I will be picking up more of her writing in the future.
My favorite section was that of the rewritten fairy tale heroines, these poem were magical and everything I never knew I needed. This poetry collection was filled with poems about su ...more
"How comforting to think that there are so many universes.
Perhaps one where the Titanic did not sink,
one where humanity is kind to the earth, not a curse.
Possibly one where magic is real
To me, (and in my humble opinion) it is almost impossible to find a poetry book where you love every single poem written in it. I mean you always have some favorites, ones you love more than others, and some you didn't really connect with.
While reading 'Wild Embers' I had a lot of favorites but also some (and a ver ...more
This woman can write her heart out -- literally, her heart and vulnerability and strength are on every single page of this opus.
The cover is beautiful, just wanted to get that one out of the way.
I LOVED THIS BOOK. SO, why not five stars? The book would have benefited from small amounts of copy editing - in the first 25 pages of the book, the wording or structure of a few poems confused me, leading me to re-read it until I realized the rhythm of the poem. One poem (p. 8) spoke in a circle, and ...more
Nikita Gill has given an all new dimension to the world of poetry with her simple yet complicated, short yet deeply meaningful poems.
I have always questioned the fairy tales that we have been told since my childhood, and Nikita Gill has beautifully reshaped them and told the world that how they should have been.
If correct ideas are sown into the minds when they are young, I feel ...more
This collection of poems is full of self love, strength and reminders that you are stronger than you think. There are lots of nods to space and how miniscule we all actually are. Reminders that what happens to you shouldn't define you.
It's a very nice collection for people on the path of learning how to love themselves.
Because, you will say quietly,
he had convinced me
I was no longer human."
There are definitely some really strong ones here and every word is very beautiful and right... but for me it's just not powerful . It didn't make me shiver from emotions, it didn't make me feel anything more. I was missing some really strong emotions.

To be honest with you when I started reading the poems I was like “what… no… I don’t like it , my rating will be awful”, but then everything started to get better and I honestly really enjoyed this book.
The poems talk a little about magic which is awesome because I do believe in magic, I do believe in witches, I ...more
