Book Review: Writing Away Tragedies by Christy Aldridge



"Poetry is nothing more than pretty words telling ugly truths"

And so the journey begins into Writing Away Tragedies. Reading this book was like being on a roller coaster ride while catching glimpses of your own life. I felt like I was reading through a very personal memoir. Christy is witty, honest, and raw. I wasn't expecting to feel so connected to the poems and finding so much truth and meaning in them. And it was such a great surprise. The poems touches on a lot of subject matters like love, heartache, family, self-harm, writing, and bullying. Most of all it is darkly romantic and a letter to writers everywhere. It is about things every young girl have probably went through or heard their friends going through. It will make you look at life in a new way and quite honestly leave you breathless.
