Title: Uncaged Wallflower
Author: Jennae Cecelia
Publication Date: October 6, 2016
Goodreads Synopsis: Uncaged Wallflower is for those who feel trapped in the thoughts their minds produce, unable to express them with the rest of the world out of fear of critique or disagreement. For the people who need an extra dose of positivity in their day. This is not a poetry book for you to read and relate to in a sorrow filled way. It is for you to read and say yes, I can be better, and I will.
Today, I’m going to be reviewing Jennae Cecelia’s poetry collection Uncaged Wallflower. For this poetry review, I’m going to do it a little bit differently. I noticed that with every poetry book I read, that the results were always the same. 5 stars. Which is not a bad thing at all. These books are amazing! I just feel as if I am not giving them a fair review based on their content.
So instead of a normal review mentioning the likes and dislikes of the book, I’m going to rate the book based on three categories. If it meets the criteria it will get 3 checks. For a detailed description of the check system, check out my rating system for poetry (at the bottom of the rating system page).

Relatability – There are so many times when I was reading that I felt that the poems were talking about me. I could relate to a lot of the poems and it made the book that much more enjoyable.
Emotions – These poems are set out to make you feel empowered and it works. As I read, I felt as if I could do and accomplish anything. This is something that I have not experienced in any kind of book before. It is refreshing and invigorating.
Overall, Uncaged Wallflower is an empowering poetry book that really resonated with me. I loved how the poems made me feel as I read them. I can’t wait to read more by Jennae Cecelia! Uncaged Wallflower gets…
