    1. I have been following Sarah Kay since my first year in college (2012) when I first watched her in Ted. Immediately, I was captivated and inevitably fell in love with spoken word. When she first announced that she will be publishing a book, I was more than excited. I had pre-ordered three copies immediately (for me and my two soul mates). When it finally reached my hands, it was all I could ask for and more. Reading the book was a confirmation of how much I am obsessed with her work. I knew (and [...]

    2. It will now be my life mission to read all poems Sarah Kay has written. She is a genius times infinity. I have memorized Postcards that's how much I loved it. And remind me please to ask her to buy me new set of tabs because I seriously have used up all my tabs on this book. I loved how her poems touched not only love, but awareness, longing, giving importance to other people, putting someone else's happiness before her own and how she made each poem entirely different from another. I highly thi [...]

    3. SHUT THE HECK YOUR FACE THIS WAS SO GOODI have been reading so much mindless poetry lately. Poetry written on napkins and scribbed in diaries, just syntax-less ramblings. THIS is poetry with substance, with carefully thought-out writing, with power and emotion. most of this is about love, but it's unlike anything you've read before. there's not a single cliché. my favorite poem by far was "The Type." I read it once and was so impressed that I read it again out loud to myself. The quality of all [...]

    4. Wish I could whisper "it's not you, it's me" to this book. Even though Sarah Kay has established quite the fan base on and on the web, I just could not connect with these poems on a deeper level - perhaps because poetry has never been my genre of choice. I appreciate that she writes about a variety of topics ranging from romance to family to personal insecurities. I like how not all of her pieces stem from anger, or lust, or anguish; the emotional variety of this collection strengthens it. The [...]

    5. I held very still and closed my eyes, trying to keep whatever particles of you I managed to steal, until even my inhale meant losing you.Unlike any other modern poetry books which are all about dumping emotions in sets of rhyming words, Sarah Kay has brought us stories in forms of poems told in a uniquely realistic manner. She need not to impress us with using excessive flowery words because she already expressed her feelings spectacularly through every piece. She reminded me of the beautiful th [...]

    6. Rip my heart right out of my chest. Sarah Kay. Holyit.I think my favorite of all of the poems in this book is The Type. This line did it for me."It is hard to stop loving the ocean.Even after it has left you gasping. salty."If i was rich, I'd buy copies of this book and give it to every woman that I know. And every man too. Really, just so, so good. And I don't even like poetry that much.

    7. 5 StarsSarah Kay's first collection of poems is an instant favourite of mine. A dear friend brought Sarah Kay to my attention a few months ago in an attempt to explain to me the wonders of spoken-word poetry. She sent me a TED talks video called If I should have a daughter and within less than 20 minutes I was completely captivated, awed and inspired, and Sarah Kay had herself a new lifelong fan. After spending days watching as many YouTube videos as I could find, getting my hands on this writte [...]

    11. Quotes:"Oh, Brother. No matter your wreckage. There will be someone to find you beautiful, despite the cruddy metal. Your ruin is not to be hidden behind paint and canvas. Let them see the cracks. Someone will come to sing into these empty spaces.""My self-confidence can be measured out in teaspoons, mixed into my poetry, and it still always tastes funny in my mouth.""I’ll always keep an extra supply of chocolate and rain boots nearby, because there is no heartbreak that chocolate can’t fix.

    13. Sarah Kay is an enormously talented young poet. Watching her express herself through poetry on youtube is even more satisfiying. She is one to keep an eye on in the future,as well as now. As she matures in her craft and develops it will be exiting to see just how far she flies!

    14. Hopping on the poetry bandwagon for 2018 is intimidating considering my exposure to the hype as I have been resisting it for quite a while now. The poetry books I have read so far are either lackluster or bland in terms of writing, but this book completely changed my viewpoint on poetry. If you are planning to read more poetry this reading year, I can tell you one thing for sure, Sarah Kay will not disappoint.“You can only fit so many words into a postcard.Only so many in a phone call. Only so [...]

    16. Sarah Kay: AMAZING.I have waited what seems like FOREVER to see her work in print. Many of my favorite spoken word poems are in here, and there are so many new ones that I'm in love with now. "Mrs. Ribeiro" is my current favorite, and "Scissors" and "Boom" and "Grace" and… OK, I can't pick just one. If you haven't seen her TED talk, go watch it.If you haven't found her videos on YouTube, go find them.Then, read this book. Give it to your friends. Read it again.I think I'm going to have to buy [...]

    17. Who knew objects like a toothbrush and bicycle tire could be used to describe the love we secretly yearn for? Where do I exactly begin to describe the beauty of each word Sarah Kay uses? I'm at a complete loss for words. Even before reading this book, bits of Sarah Kay's poems across the internet had me dabbing at my cheeks, not realizing I'd been tearing up.

    20. This is one of my favourite poetry books, it’s up there with Milk and Honey and This Modern Love. I’ve only really gotten into poetry books within the last year and I’m so glad I picked this one up!My favourites included “Mrs. Ribeiro” about her former school principle who quite frankly sounds amazing. The poem discusses how Sarah uses what Mrs. Ribeiro taught her to inspire and teach her own students-"She spoke to us like we were scholars. Artists. Scientists. Athletes. Musicians. And [...]

    22. I'm sad to say I didn't really enjoy this poetry collection, specially since everyone who's read this seems to love it. Poetry is a very subjective thing, and for me to appreciate it I have to connect with what it's saying. That unfortunately did not happen with this collection. I felt very detached from the author and the themes while reading the poems, and I felt that the free-form didn't help convey the message she was trying to get accross. I also feel that the stories she was telling were v [...]

    23. Poetry is very subjective to me, I do not always enjoy what I read, because I, apparently, have a very strong bias for classic poems. But recently, I have gotten into slam poetry, so I've discovered many of those authors have published books, and many of those poems I've loved are written down. The downside to it is, that slam poetry is meant to be spoken word, it has a greater impact that way than simply being written down, and that is what happened with this collection. She has a beautiful way [...]

    24. I am not the type of reader who usually gives 1 star to books, but this book is really bad. To be honest, I don't know Sarah Kay and this book was recommended by based on my poetry books purchases. Also, I really liked the cover.The thing I don't understand about this book that it is not poetry, it is more of a diary. So many irrelevant personal stories were shared by the author in this book that made it impossible for me to relate while reading. The only thing I felt is being bored.I did enjoy [...]

    26. What a dreadful read. Her writing style was simply not my cup of tea, I liked a poem or two, but it didn't has a wow factor or anything and I loathed reading it out loud or even silently *Shocked* because I usually enjoy reading poetry books out loud. I barely enjoyed it if not at all.I couldn't fathom or relate to most of her poems which made it harder for me to like this collection of poems.

    27. This would be great as an audio book. This collection of work would be better presented as spoken word, which I am pretty sure Kay is a rockstar at. Overall, 3.5 - but it's refreshing to read longer poetry/prose these days.

    28. There are some writers and poets that I cannot read without hearing their voice reading along inside my head and Sarah Kay is definitely one of them. To be fair, Sarah is a spoken word poet and her work is meant to be read aloud and performed so her poems and her voice are tightly intertwined. And the fact that I have seen YouTube videos of her performing some of the poems in this collection (including Montauk, Mrs. Ribeiro, Hands, and B) may be partly responsible for the fact that I hear Sarah' [...]

    29. I'd never read a poetry book before, but then again until Sarah Kay appeared in my life I was never a fan of poetry either. I mean, I liked it. But never really liked it, you know? Anyway, No Matter The Wreckage was all I expected from Sarah Kay and more. It was a lovely gathering of different poems that included not only some of my all time favourites, such as The Type, Postcards and Hands but also all these others that I'd never read before but already love. So far, my "new" favourites include [...]
