I Hope This Makes You Uncomfortable Reviews
This book of poetry is aptly named because if it doesn't make you feel uncomfortable, then I don't know what will. There were a few poems that stood out and made me feel very emotional for the writer. This is a book young people should read to understand the consequences their actions have on others.
"I wonder what she would have been like, the girl who didn’t meet the vulture, the girl I could have been"
Kat set out to evoke all the feels and this collection of poems does exactly that.
As intended this read will make you uncomfortable. It's short but sharp and cuts you deep, right down to the very bone.
“I thought becoming a woman was gentle, sophisticated, but I was wrong
We are all wrong...”
I Hope This Makes You Uncomfortable...yes - yes, it will. Kat Savage speaks such hard truths, shining the spotlight on things usually kept in the dark. I love honesty and I love truth, but today while reading, I just felt sad. I felt an intense sadness for Kat's struggles and a deep desire to fix them. I think when I'm reading Fiction, it's easier to get lost in the pain of broken characters - it doesn't always hurt in the same way because it's not happening to a real person. When I read Kat's p ...more
Wow. That was the first word that popped in my head when I read the very first poem. So much of this collection felt open, raw and emotional. The goal of the book was leave you feeling exposed and empowered. Kat wrote so beautifully and unapologetically about what it is like to be a woman who is ridiculed. I am so insanely wowed by her work, especially this collection. I can not wait to see what she does next.
Perfection. It was a cathartic experience. Some poems I felt deep in my marrow. Some unrelated to people I love so much and want them to read them too so they can feel they’re not alone, ever. Kat Savage writes unabashedly raw, real, beautiful words. I’m enraptured by them. I can’t wait for everyone to get their hands on this.
So beautifully written.
I highly recommend this book for the wounded hearts seeking a bit of comfort. Some of the poems cut deep, but it's the realization that we're not alone.
From the first poem it was obvious how the title was a perfect fit. Everything that is written down are things women have gone through and kat wrote it down so honest and raw but at the same time so beautiful. You are so open with everything you've gone through and I thank you for giving us the inside of you and your feelings.
I cried during most of it. I was hurting as I was reading. For myself, for you and for everyone who needs it. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.

So I devoured this book like no other! I literally read it in under an hour. Savage has a way of writing the ugliest and hardest subjects so beautifully. It's like she can see into souls. There is at least one poem for everyone in this collection. I'm in major book hangover. Fat Girls, Loving Liars, Begging, Regret Me, A Tragedy in Four Acts are just a few of my favorites from this undeniably beautiful collection. Her words linger in the brain and make you think, they are fantastic because she i ...more
