Wild Embers Reviews

    This was absolutely incredible. Breathtaking. Captivating. Haunting. I just can't get my words into an appropriate semblance of sense to actually review it.

    I absolutely loved the writing and the subject of this collection. Nikita Gill is one of my favourite modern poets, this is the second book I read from her and I have to say that her writihng improved very much. Her poems also had more substance and the fact that she included a section where she speaks of fairy-tales and how they are toxic to our society, how we should recreate them to create more feminist narratives is amazing!!

    I absolutely loved the writing and the subject of this collection. Nikita Gill is one of my favourite modern poets, this is the second book I read from her and I have to say that her writihng improved very much. Her poems also had more substance and the fact that she included a section where she speaks of fairy-tales and how they are toxic to our society, how we should recreate them to create more feminist narratives is amazing!!

    I don’t know about you, but I mostly loved fairy-tales because of how magical they seemed, how everyone got what they wished for in the end. I never stopped and thought as a child about how problematic they are, how girls seem to be there only to get a man, be submissive, give up on their families and their hobbies and everything else just to marry off to someone who might never see them as equals. (We’re not going to include Mulan in here because she’s a badass queen and not Anastasia either).

    Also, there’s another section on goddesses and wow!!! So much mythology appreciation, so much Artemis & Athena worshipping and Zeus bashing because Hera really should have dropped his cheating, abusive ass. Nikita Gill was very creative while doing this collection. It feels like a love letter to every woman, teaching us how to lose ties with people that only seem to harm us, showing us role-models, showing us what are some harmful concepts that keep us from growing up.

    I was pretty blown away by Wild Embers and I totally recommend you to read it!!! Please do it because I don’t think you’d regret the choice (especially if you’re a feminist).

    Taken from 'Belle':

    After reading this wondrous piece of work, it is hard to believe that Nikita Gill received 137 rejections from publishers. She is a poet who uses tumblr and Instagram originally to post her poems, and finally her unseen poems were published in this book, Wild Embers.

    Her poetry covers such a wide range of topics. From the empowering poetry; the miracle of life, your unique self, accepting your own flaws, womanhood. To the poetry that felt like punches to the gut; relationships of both physical and mental abuse, rape, victim-blaming, bullying (see poems; 'Learned Helplessness' and 'Boys Will Be Boys'). Her poetry invokes the empathetic feeling of what some women (and men) experience, how they are torn down and how they grow from this, taking gradual steps to rebuild even though there are challenges ahead.

    This books also features rewritten fairytales, finding your own magic and sorcery, inviting in the wild-self, and goddess mythology with a feminist, empowering retelling. It leaves room to think about revolution, anger over what needs to change and your own personal growth and acceptance.

    Some of the poems were heavily based around comparisons to nature and the universe and how this is rooted into personal experiences, some which are highly relatable.

    Overall this poetry was highly emotive, whether this be anger, empowerment, or the feeling of a need of revolution, these poems hit you directly and are relevant in today's society.

    I wish I had been able to learn this form of poetry in school, as I probably would've picked up poetry outside of the academic setting a lot sooner.

    An absolutely powerful read from Nikita Gill!

    It is no surprise that Nikita Gill, Instagram poetry sensation, has released a collection of poetry focused on female empowerment. Gill is recognized for her short, powerful poetry that liken women to wolves, storms, and protective anger against the forces that seek to harm and destroy us. Wilder Embers has poetry for the mind and body, giving readers powerful verses about self-love and breaking the chains we've been locked into. The poems are fairly short and quick, the longest being about the Princesses of fairy tales. I really enjoyed the poems about witches, magic, and mythology. I might have cried a bit in the "chapter" that references wolves hidden in your soul. They were so powerful and so true, talking of the strength a woman finds to question the trauma and darkness they've endured. That's my kind of poetry. It's inspiring and empowering, the kind of rebellious poetry you want to read instead of those poems about being sick for love.

    Wild Embers is a poetry novel that has something for every emotion you may be feeling. You can pick it up, flip to a page and read something that speaks to you, that moves you, that really means something for you. Reading it all in order though? That is something I don't suggest doing. It gets repetitive, especially when a couple of the poems sound identical or like extensions of one another. I wish some of the first poems, especially those centered around space, would have been dispersed through out the book.

    Ultimately, I really enjoyed Wild Embers. It is a powerful self-care focused collection of poems that are all about strength as a female, healing, inspiration, and breaking the molds of time-honored expectations that can be found in fairy tales.

    A note: I do not suggest reading these poems on an ereader, the page turns do not fit well with the layout.

    There was so much feels while reading this poetry book. And I can’t coherent the words how to describe this beautiful art. This poetry tells all the heartaches, self-love and being strong no matter how hard the challenges are.

    This was my first poetry book written by Nikita Gill, and it will not be the last. Though there were times that the words or the concepts were sometimes redundant, the effects it made was undeniably strong.

    Hope I can read more works of Nikita Gill! A thumbs up and 4/5 stars for me!

    I went into this collection of poetry by Nikita Gill, really not knowing what to expect and it did not disappoint. The cover alone would be enough for me to buy the book though. It's simply beautiful.

    "You cannot burn away what has always been aflame"

    Nikita Gill can certainly write. Her poems are unique, personal and I can say that a good number of them I could relate to. I had to reread a few of them to understand them fully, as a couple are told like they are going round in a circle. The theme

    "You cannot burn away what has always been aflame"

    Nikita Gill can certainly write. Her poems are unique, personal and I can say that a good number of them I could relate to. I had to reread a few of them to understand them fully, as a couple are told like they are going round in a circle. The theme of this poetry book is based around love, heartache and being strong no matter how hard life attempts to beat you down. I definitely had the feels, while reading some of this exquisite writing and I can honestly say my soul feels uplifted.

    I went into this not knowing what to expect from the author, especially after a bit disconnected with the writing in 

    . But Nikita Gill had me pleasantly surprised with this follow-up book.

    I recently came to the realization, after some much-needed trial and error with multiple poetry collections, than I enjoy my poems focused more on self-love over romantic love. And 

    brought just that to the table. I would go so far as to say that this is the ultimate self-care poetry collection. The practice of learning to love yourself is a continuous theme over the course of these poems, rather than just making an appearance here and there. So are the themes of girl power, kindness and confidence, the grandiosity of space (her fascination with the intergalactic was so contagious, I now have my eyes set on reading 

    ), rewriting classic Disney fairytales to fit a more feminist point of view, and the powerful women in mythology. Speaking of the last two, I really enjoyed Gill's modern take on the question:

     It added something refreshing that I hadn’t seen before in previous poetry collections.

    And to share a few of my favorite caught gems from

    The last poem was a majestic note to end on.

    And speaking on the theme, I listened to the acoustic version of
