    PDF/EPUB Ijeoma Umebinyuo Ê uestions for Ada MOBI ☆ uestions for ePUB ï Ê uestions book, uestions for kindle, uestions for Ada eBook REVIEW THIS is how you write a poetry collection 'uestions for Ada' is full of strength vulnerability and pride Every word in these poems is heavy with meaning and purpose These poems show you that all your emotions are valid and must be felt Some poetry collections feel lazy and words just seem to be thrown onto the pages But 'uestions for Ada' is a collection that was carefully crafted with love and full awareness of self I've dog eared sooo many of the pages in this book because the poems just spoke to me I found myself reflecting after reading a couple of poems at a time I love when a piece of writing makes you reflect on your lifesociety and allows you to think about them critically I will definitely give this collection

    PDF/EPUB Ijeoma Umebinyuo Ê uestions for Ada MOBI ☆ uestions for ePUB ï Ê uestions book, uestions for kindle, uestions for Ada eBookI've become familiar with Ijeoma's work through her social media platforms and Tedx talk Also this book was uite popular amongst my friends So how to rate this 🤔 If it was possible I would rate the first half of this book 25 stars and the rest 45 stars So 3 stars The first half read in that very familiar Rupi Kaur way I still haven't gotten around to liking Outside of a handful of pieces most of it was underwhelming for me and I guess I'm just not the target groupI will leave it at that But the rest of the book read like Warsan Shire's work in Teaching my mother how to give birth which I loved It was the human experience It was culture being an immigrant family and I found that it does justice to her writing which is good h

    PDF/EPUB Ijeoma Umebinyuo Ê uestions for Ada MOBI ☆ uestions for ePUB ï Ê uestions book, uestions for kindle, uestions for Ada eBookI found her most powerful uotes were when she did not hide behind imagery and comes out and says what she truly feels like in Diaspora Blues First Generation and Homeland so beautiful But the writing seemed to me like a watered down slightly cliche mashup of Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche and Warsan Shire Some of the lines and organization seemed forced and and repetitive she says thunder in veins a lot which is a shame because she covers such important topics and it takes away from a lot of the feeling she's trying to portray In the first half of the book I really wanted her to excavate about the cultural ramifications and reasons for all she talks about She gets into that in the second half of the book a little which I definitley appreciated For the most part though her writing is pretty raw which is what kept me reading until the e
