This book of poems is about thoughts, feelings, and emotions we all experience, struggle with, and that have been brought to the forefront by this current pandemic. Losing loved ones, our freedom, and everythingtaken for granted in our daily lives; while facing sadness, anger, grief, and loneliness, has taught us the importance of our love for nature, gratitude, happiness, cherished memories, and relationships. No feeling or emotion is too small or negligible. Acknowledging and expressing them is my voice from the inside.

I received an advance reader copy of this book to read in exchange for an honest review via netgalley and the publishers.

From the inside is a beautiful collection of poems about the inner soul of a young poet at different times and types of emotions in life. Each poem is easily relatable to and written in easy to understand and read wording.
These poems were beautifully written by a ten year old poet with great feeling and attention to life around us and relating to us as adults reading this book.
To accompany the poems there are lovely illustrations too which was an added beautiful touch.
Definitely worth a read!

I recently read a collection of poetry offered for review via NetGalley. I was drawn to the description of From the Inside: The Inner Soul of a Young Poet and decided to take a chance on it. I hadn't realized when I accepted the book for review that the author, Thanvi Voruganti, is ten years old, the same age as my daughter. It would not have made a difference in my saying yes or no to the collection, but it did influence my reading, I imagine.

It is clear Thanvi has a passion for writing poetry--and she is very talented. She has a way with words and a gift for putting to paper her thoughts and feelings. Her words are those of a child but speak to all ages. It is easy to forget she is so young.

I found her poems very relatable. They are mostly centered around the pandemic. They are uplifting and heartfelt. She touches on such emotions as grief and loss as well as hope. She writes about taking pleasure in nature and finding joy in the little things, as well as about the isolation and sadness.

This is a collection of beautiful poems. Each poem is based on different perspectives of life. The themes include different emotions and several other topics which we as an adult have to deal with. Each poem is beautiful and impactful. The simple words from an young poet are easily relatable to your state of mind. The poems captured variety of emotions. There are pretty illustrations in the book with add beauty to the book. I loved the narration of each poem. Each poem is beautiful in its own way. It's a tiny book, I finished it in one sitting only.
The language used is pretty simple and easy making it a comfortable read.
I love the fact that a ten year old kid has beautifully pen down her thoughts. Best wishes for her upcoming works.

It is incredible to believe that such poetry and the insights embedded in it came from the mind and heart of a ten-year-old. This volume of poetry would be an achievement for an adult to write and is even more remarkable as the product of a child's creativity and imagination.

This collection of poetry reads like a celebration of that creativity and imagination in ourselves and in nature. It pays tribute to the small things and little moments that may get overlooked but ultimately make life so worthwhile, and in fact there is a poem entitled "Little Things" that is devoted to extolling those moments. This poem was a favorite of mine. Other favorites of mine included: "Meant to Be," "A Photograph," Standing on the Edge," "Caught in the Middle," "If Only I Was A Bird," "Looking for a Reflection," and "People Asked Me Why."

As in many poetry collections, there were some poems that hit for me, and some that didn't quite land or connect with me. For those most part, I found the poems that were most effective for me to be the ones that had a wistful and reflective quality to them.

I appreciated the illustrations and the haikus throughout the book. The haikus contained some of the most evocative imagery in this collection such as the comparison of the sunset to "pumpkin."

I think this poetry collection could connect to readers of all ages, but it might be most impactful with young adult and middle grade readers because it might be very inspiring to them that the author was a ten-year-old and they could likely relate very much to the emotions and experiences the poet draws upon to write this volume.

(In the interest of full disclosure, I received a free promotional copy from the publisher in exchange for this honest review.)

🌻What is the world to you?
A fairytale castle where you are the queen? Or dancing by the streetlight
While pretending you cannot be seen.
From the Inside: The Inner Soul of a Young Poet is a collection of poems and proses. The book is very neatly organised and I just loved the little doodles in between chapters.
The book is divided into parts-
~The first part is about nature and talks about the sky, stars and how these celestial bodies influence humans life and provide both peace and chaos to their soul.
~The second part is titled LOSS AND PAIN. There is a poem called "One Tear Left" in this section and I just loved it.
~Then there is a section called MEMORIES.
This section is my favourite of the whole book. All the poems from this section are so heart-warming and emotional and well written.
~ There are a few more sections Happiness, comedy, dilemma and bravery. These are also nicely written, words laced with emotions and feelings.
Overall, it is really impressive and the poems are thought-provoking and intriguing. The cover of the book is pretty and catchy.
I didn't know till the very end that the book is written by a very young girl and was surely more impressed with such beautiful writing and command over language and rhythm.

|| BOOK REVIEW || - 🍁 The Book, From The Inside By Thanvi Voruganti, is a Collection Of Poems.
🍂 🍂 🍂 🍂 🍂

🍁 The Book is Divided in to Nine Parts. Each Part has some Poems. All the Poems are Lengthy to be Read And are Different From each other.
🍂 🍂 🍂 🍂 🍂

🍁 The Book has Drawings almost for every Poem. That is making the Book a Bit More Intriguing and Refreshing to be Read.
🍂 🍂 🍂 🍂 🍂

🍁 The Author has written Poems about Nature, Loss and Pain, Memories, Happiness, Comedy, Dilemma, Bravery and such Relatable Emotions in the Book.
🍂 🍂 🍂 🍂 🍂

🍁 The Language of the Book is Lucid. The Writing Style of the Book could have been Better. The Cover of the Book is Captivating. The Title of the Book could have been Better.
🍂 🍂 🍂 🍂 🍂

|| PERSONAL INSIGHT || - 🌸 Although, I Enjoyed Reading the Book, The Poems could have been Written with a Bit Better Poetic Sense. Poems have the Power to Create a Connection with An Emotion with very Few Words. That Aspect could have been Better. Overall, The Book is a Good Read.

Straight from the heart!

Book Review:

From The Inside:The Inner Soul of a Young Poet is a collection of poems straight from the heart. This young author, Thanvi Voruganti, has poured her heart out in the form of beautiful words. The poems are categorized under the heads of Nature, Loss and Pain, Memories, Happiness, Comedy, Dilemma, Bravery and Story In A Poem and each poem does justice to its genre-of-sorts. The poems have come in the face of the pandemic and have rightly depicted what we all commonly felt- the fear, the panic, the hopelessness, the anger, the despair, the loss of loved ones, our freedoms being literally taken away, the epiphanies and the myriad of various other emotions.

This little girl is a bundle of talent and she's surely to fly real high. Give this book a read. It's short and crisp with emotions that you can connect with. Happy reading!

First and foremost, thanks to NetGalley for giving me a copy of this collection in return for a review.

I was really impressed by this collection of poems, and the fact that it was written by someone so young is even more impressive. With many poetry books, I feel like there is a lot of filler and short thoughts thrown on paper without further exploration. However, with this collection, I felt like all the ideas were well thought out. Many followed a generic rhyme scheme, and for some of the poems, I believe there could have been some alterations to improve effectiveness, but as a whole, I am really impressed.
All in all, I felt like this is a well-developed collection that explores a wide variety of themes.

💫First and foremost, I adore the book's cover. And the title accurately describes the book's material. This book includes a selection of short, lovely poems. It's a breath of fresh air to read them. It was a good read for me as I went through the pages.

A cute poetry collection written by a 10 years old writer.

The poems covers the inner feelings of the author. How she feels being a ten year old and how she used to listen to everyone. Home is what we all crave for. Here in a poem the author describes the importance of our house and how we feel terrible if we need to stay away from our beloved home. Every poem composes a sweet fragrance. The poems are simple and short in nature.

I loved that this book was easy to follow and I could easily visualize every thing that was happening. The way that the author has written the poems in a way that everyone can imagine, or can relate to just made me feel like I was really there. I felt the emotions that the author felt as they went through the book.
Excited to see what comes next.

Let me tell u one thing, this work must be appreciated more and more. I fell for this work. So much sweet.
This contains the soulful writings of the author herself. And it has something that gives light to my life. She put forward the idea that no human feelings are negligible. So she captured hers and gave it to us.
