Beautifully illustrated and thoughtfully conceived, Love and Misadventure will take you on a rollercoaster ride through an ill-fated love affair—from the initial butterflies through the soaring heights to the devastating plunge.  And, in the end, the message is one of hope.

The journey from love to heartbreak to finding love again is personal yet universal. Lang Leav's evocative love poetry speaks to the soul of anyone who is on this journey.  Leav has an unnerving ability to see inside the hearts and minds of her readers. Her talent for translating complex emotions with astonishing simplicity has won her a cult following of devoted modern poetry fans from all over the world. Forget the dainty, delicate love poems of yore; these little poems pack a mighty punch.

Lang Leav is a poet and internationally exhibiting artist. Her work expresses the intricacies of love and loss. Love & Misadventure is her first poetry collection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yeah it was good Was expecting more from it, but better than some other poetry books out there

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Teenage Shock-Value Poetry I am leaving this review for all of Lang Leav's books since I've read them all and feel the same about them all. They're just full of teenage shock-value, leaving no substance. Leav is clearly a feminist and is putting forth a very "sexual freedom" type of "moral" in these books. Young women are clearly the audience, but young women need better role models than this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relatable I received this book as a gift - something that had been on my wish list for a while - and I am definitely not disappointed! I was familiar with Leav's work online and I knew I had to get her books. This book is about all kinds of love - love for a person, a love for books and art, etc as well as heart strains such as jealousy, and heart break. This book has so many relatable poems and lines that almost my whole copy is highlighted. Definitely would recommend!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute Book of Poetry I thought this book was a cute book with nice poetry. It has a lot of love poems but I thought it was nice. If you don't like love poetry or relationship stuff I wouldn't read it. However, her poetry is raw and I do enjoy it. 3.5 stars

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All of my yes. Found this in my local Chapters and read nearly all of it before bringing it and its "sequel" to checkout. I have now read and reread both of them multiple times and have been reading pieces to friends and lovers and spreading it around to everyone i care about.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as I thought These collections of poems are good, but not as hyped up as I expected them to be - I was disappointed after finishing the book. Leav's second work, Lullabies, is a far better read!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just as many blank pages as written This book was a gift for my daughter - who was so looking forward to receiving the book.  She was disappointed, the book only has one poem per page - meaning the book is 1/2 the size, as the back of the page is blank. Poems are very good

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazingly crafted. All i have to say about Lang Leav's love and misadventure is that, it's beautifully thought and amazingly crafted. The way the poems are somehow relatable, and the way these poems are made so that readers will understand easily and the way that these poems can be interpreted in a million different ways, especially those who do not read poems as much, (me!) Overall, this book was amazing. Thank you, Lang Leav.
