Book Review: Battle Scars by Jordan Corley | Poetry | Memoir | Book Blogger | Book Reviewer | RachelPoli.com

I received an eARC from the author.

Summary:

battle scars is a tribute to the pain and suffering that happens beneath the surface of a smile. A smile we so cautiously adorn to mask the truth, but sometimes life just isn’t going the way you want it to, sometimes life is hard. This collection of poetry explores life through Jordan’s eyes, with the hope that someone, somewhere, might be able to relate to the meaning of her words and find solace in the comfort of knowing that they are not alone.

My Review:

Book Cover | RachelPoli.comThe cover is simple enough. It’s dark, rightfully so given the poetry inside. The triangles feel as though they’re out of place, but I like that symbolism.

First Thoughts | RachelPoli.comPoetry isn’t something I read too often, but I do enjoy it. When I author asked if I was interested in giving this a read, I was more than happy to.

Plot | RachelPoli.comAs the summary says, this book is a collection of poetry through the author’s eyes as she goes through some tough times in life. The messages were well done and received. I think there are many people out there who can relate to the author’s words.

Writing Style | RachelPoli.com

This book is as described – a collection of poetry. Each poem is written well with deep thoughts. I didn’t resonate with all of them though there were some words that stuck out in my mind. Some of the poems were bland. One poem repeated “sorry” over and over again which seemed to drag on for me. However, most of the poems are beautifully crafted and worded well.

Overall | RachelPoli.comBeing poetry, this is a quick read and worth the time if you’re interested in memoirs and poetry.

Favorite Quote:

“i do not want to run anymore / i want to stop / and feel the breeze / breathe in the scents of / grass and dirt / and just be / in the moment / for / a / second.” -Jordan Corley, Battle Scars

About Jordan Corley:

Jordan Corley | Author | Poet | Battle Scars | Book Review | RachelPoli.comJordan released her debut poetry collection, battle scars, at age 19 after maintaining a WordPress poetry blog for a year. She currently attends Penn State University where she is attempting a degree in Biomedical and Mechanical engineering and writes for their school newspaper. Her biggest writing accomplishment would undeniably have to be her piece on Jesse McCartney because it has (hopefully) set her one step closer to meeting Justin Bieber.
