“If a boy ever says, you remind me of someone – don’t fall in love with him. You will never be anything more than second best.”
Lullabies is a collection of poems and other literary composition written by Lang Leave, the author of the book Love and Misadventure.
Just like any other book, I asked myself why Lullabies? Is it because her words were beautifully written like a song -a lullaby for a baby- or is it because it has short stories of magic, love, and fairytales just like a book for your daughters to read before sleeping? Maybe. But who knows? It can also be telling the real-life story of the author.
There are short stories inside this book, much more than love and misadventure. But it didn’t ruin the book. Thus, it adds more colors and flavor to the book which made it relatable to the readers.
It might be seemed fictional, but somewhere along the lines, the reader will feel that the written work is too beautiful to be purely fictional.
If love and misadventure were like a written poem for the readers, Lullabies was for herself (the author). It was about her own experiences and memories. Still relatable to some, but you will be able to see the difference.
Lullabies is something more meaningful for the author than the other. I can not say that this is better than Love and Misadventure because they are written in a different aspect. They are like two people with their own personalities yet, gorgeous in their own way.
There are only a few parts that I love in this collection, lesser than the first book. However, I can’t say that Lullabies is not read worthy because it’s still simple yet unforgettable.
