Beautiful. Emotional. Masterfully written. “Unbroken” took me through ups and down but I loved it all! I could tell that some pieces were raw and emotional and I can’t imagine the strength it took to write it. As a poet myself, I hope to someday write art such as this that will have a lasting impression on my readers. Very well done!!!

The collection of poetry in this book spoke to me on levels that I wasn’t expecting. To have a strangers words connect with you to make you feel like you wrote them? It’s such a deep experience that I have gone through this book and I have highlighted my favourites. It has a variety of different themes and moods for you to sit and resonate with.
This book by Mills is definitely worth the read. You can open the book to LITERALLY any page and it just seems to be the page you are supposed to read.

Unbroken by Tanya Mills is a very special book. It contains 125 original, hard hitting poems about love, loss, nature and more, each rich in meaning and emotion. I found them highly therapeutic to read.

The author and poet skillfully succeeds at putting into words those deep emotions and life experiences everyone encounters at some point, yet sometimes find hard to adequately express. What makes this collection of poems refreshingly different is that the quality of writing remains consistent thr

So Heartouching poems.

This is my 2nd poetry reading of the year & I m so glad that I got a chance to read this book. Some poems are so beautifully written that while reading them you'll feel yourself in that situation.

I liked that how gracefully Tanya described every phase in the life.. whether it's love, family, seasons, survival & heartbreak. I have bookmarked some poems for myself coz somehow they suits me so well.

Great book.

This is a beautifully written collection of poems that talk about love, loss, struggle, nature, family and self. There will be words in this book that speak to each and every one of you! I found it so lovely being able to dip in and out of this book and read a poem depending on the situation. Thank you Tanya Mills for your wonderful words. You have captured life perfectly in these poems.

This book really resonated with me. When I read it, I can feel the emotions of the author jumping off the pages. The poems are beautifully constructed and unique in their own way. Would definitely recommend! Great read!

I greatly enjoyed this debut poetry collection. There's a broad variety of themes and tones contained within, and all of her poems have the feeling of being drawn from her lived experiences. I highly recommend it and look forward to anything she publishes in the future. ...more

overall- 3.7/5
In today's trend of short poetry, this is one more book to the club. It basically deals with struggle theme through 6 sections of- love, loss, struggle, nature, family, and self.

While some poems were quite good like-Rain, Sunrise, Monalisa; most were ok and poorly organised. Section-wise I liked nature and struggle(4.5/5) most. The section of love and loss was not that admirable.

Indeed this can be called a handbook of poetry for every scenario in life. Truly enjoyed it and still re-reading this. Just wondering why Tanya Mills would entitle this book as "Unbroken". ...more

The book gives a summary of a normal life journey through poems divided into sections, full of expressions and feelings. The book has a problem where the poems are not in the best order(out of rhythm sometimes)and the titles are very basic/not attractive. The sections I liked are love, loss and my favorite section is 'self' as I can relate to most of the poems in these sections. The other sections are pretty good but I couldn't relate to them, except nature's section that didn't add anything to ...more

An amazing compilation of short poems by Tanya Mills.
The title 'Unbroken' very well depicts the chain of poems one after the other, each one of them touching mind and soul. Every poem written is unique in itself, that just set onto your nerves. Each and every word describing life and circumstances.
