    A short little book full of notes for one's self and little poems. The writing was rather flat and simple, not poetic. I know this book is supposed to be uplifting and empowering, but to me, it only felt like "been there, done that", nothing new that I haven't read before, thought about or even told myself. It was an okay read nonetheless, nothing out of ordinary. A short little book full of notes for one's self and little poems. The writing was rather flat and simple, not poetic.

    The best book I have ever read. I am currently in pieces right now, broken, I must say. A recent lover bid goodbye And all was left are tears uncried. This book uplifted my entire being. It brought me to tears, not the sad tears but an overwhelming gratefulness kind of tears. I found a friend. I found a very good friend in a book. It is a good kind of friendship. And I intend to go back to the pages over and over again.

    A peaceful book about different thoughts of Alexandra Elle, a wanderer, just like you and me. And here goes below the best quotes of the book: "Dear Self, If you keep going backwards with the same people that God has intentionally removed from your life, you will continue to stay stuck. There is no joy in being confused and unhappy. Get rid of old bad habits and leave them where they belong. What is meant for you will be yours, learn to let go. Dysfunction isn’t love. Sincerely, Self" "Dear Self, Assum A peaceful book about different thoughts of Alexandra Elle, a wanderer, just like you and me.

There is no joy in being confused and unhappy. Get rid of old bad habits and leave them where they belong. What is meant for you will be yours, learn to let go. Dysfunction isn’t love. Sincerely, Self" "Dear Self, Assumptions will ruin your beautiful mind. Be aware of what you’re entertaining, even in thought." "Hesitant Self, Love your neighbor, even the ones who do not show you the same courtesy. You can’t expect to receive love if you’re selective and not really willing to give it. What you put into the world, you will indeed get back, even if it’s not from the person you’re expecting it to be. Love, Self" "There is no layaway in love. You cannot beg and plead a person to give you what’s rightfully theirs, especially if they aren’t willing to share. If a man isn’t ready to love you, let him be. Despite how much you think you want or need someone else, you don’t. Prepare yourself so that when the right one comes along , you’re ready and able to love them with your whole heart and not just pieces of it." "Sometimes it’s not the physical person that I miss but the energy we shared..." #ANote2Self

    This is such a beautiful book. I just read it all at once, not able to wait once I found out it was free here on goodreads. It switches back and forth from poems to 'notes to self' which is really cute. So inspiring and some parts really make you think. This is such a beautiful book.

    I love every bit of this book, I reflected on some of the things that has gone on in my life as I read through the notes. There's relatable content on almost every page. This book is very insightful, I will be keeping it close. I love every bit of this book, I reflected on some of the things that has gone on in my life as I read through the notes.

    The notes where very repetitive (the essence of the notes and the words that where used i.e. 'worthy' and 'forgiveness'). It also felt like I was reading an old diary from when I was sixteen years old and we all know how cringeworthy that is...But nonetheless 2 stars for the self-love message!

    a small book that's worth a read. narration of the author really is awesome. simple writing style wonderfully crafted. have a millions of stuffs for reflection though it's only a 30 minutes read. this book as a whole is some random thoughts, lovely poetries, sweet romantic self reflection , self love and lot more. And everything that's shuffled over the few pages haphazardly with the scattered tiny designs make this book pretty. a small book that's worth a read. narration of the author really is awesome. simple writing style wonderfully crafted. have a millions of stuffs for reflection though it's only a 30 minutes read. this book as a whole is some random thoughts, lovely poetries, sweet romantic self reflection , self love and lot more.

    I ended up reading this book because of all the quotes I saw on Tumblr from this book as well as the numerous positive reviews I've seen online. I did like this book. There were multiple memorable quotes that stuck with me and that I related to. I could relate to the authors journey - a sense of loving yourself and reassuring yourself... but because this book is a compilation of notes I felt that some of the messages were bitsy and incomplete.

Perhaps if the author had grouped her notes and poems by category and given a little bit more of a contextual background rather than it being like a few pages out of her diary it could've been much better. Unfortunately, personally I didn't feel that this book was "life changing" but I can see how it has been for some - broadened their perspectives and touched them in some way. I also write poetry and written peices so much of what was written I relate to and am currently going through, so it was no new truths for me.

    This was a lovely little book. “I've been hurt so bad and I still love so hard. I admire my heart for that.” “Love your neighbor. Even the ones who do not show you the same courtesy. You can’t expect to receive love if you’re selective and not really willing to give it. What you put into the world, you will indeed get back. Even if it’s not from the person you’re expecting it to be.” This was a lovely little book. “I've been hurt so bad and I still love so hard. I admire my heart for that.” “Love your neighbor.

    There were some memorable quotes indeed, but as I reached the ending I was left with an incomplete feeling. The self-love quotes and poems were surely the most successful aspect of this book. I absolutely adore Alex, but I suppose I expected more. There were many quotes/poems that seemed hurried and underdeveloped. Overall, 3.5 stars. It just needs more substance.

    Worthy read. Loved every single thing said. This is something I will most definitely go back to when I need a little boost. Such great note to self.

    Unfortunately, I found Words from a Wanderer to be more of a journal of positive notes-to-self rather than a collection of poetry. From the description of this book, I'd anticipated it to be encouraging, uplifting and poetic and for me, it fell short. I found the writing was very bland and too simple.

I did manage to find a few gems in this collection: "The heart is resilient and forgiving. It is the mind that causes us stress." "Keep in mind that the reason you know you can be good to others is only because you've taken strides to be better for and to yourself." "Believe in something greater than yourself. Love a little harder. Learn something different. Let your feelings be. Embrace the changes. Cry when you want to. Sob when you have to. Share a smile with a stranger. Laugh until your tummy hurts and your cheeks ache. Enjoy the moments of life even if they hurt. Allow your heart to mend. Be open to trusting again. Your happiness is in your hands." Overall, not a collection I would necessarily recommend, however because this is one of the author's earlier works, I will give her newer collections a chance.

    OOF I feel so bad for giving this a low-rating as I acknowledge that this is someone's first debut as a writer. I'm certain her later works probably showcase her developed potential, but this didn't do it for me. Maybe it's because I've immersed myself & dabbled in a lot of modern poetry that covers the similar themes of love, self-love, and healing , but this fell flat for me. The series of little notes to self whilst combining the notes or longer proses bled so much into each other, I couldn't OOF I feel so bad for giving this a low-rating as I acknowledge that this is someone's first debut as a writer.

It's nothing personal to discredit the author's personal narrative & whatsoever and maybe my tastes are changing but the simplicity of it was surface level for my liking.

    The messages Alex shares are sweet, raw, and encouraging. I read both of her books at the same time after having them over a year. Poetry hasn't always been my thing, however, over the years, I've often been complimented on my flow in my own writing. The more I was told, the more curious I became, and I looked into poetry books, Alex's being the first I'd ever purchased. It requires thick skin and bravery to write, let alone peel yourself open and share what's personal. Many of her messages gave The messages Alex shares are sweet, raw, and encouraging.

There's nothing she says, even on social media, that doesn't touch and/or resonate with me.

    nothing terribly wrong with this book, but i have never felt attracted to this type of writing style in poetry. it's simple -- too simple. not necessarily a bad thing, especially for people who often find poetry too difficult to comprehend, but that's just not my flavor of poetry. i like to be awed. i like feeling vindicated when i reread a poem three times and finally grasp the meaning. i like words that explode in my chest and burn in the back of my throat. i also didn't feel like the "note to nothing terribly wrong with this book, but i have never felt attracted to this type of writing style in poetry. it's simple -- too simple. not necessarily a bad thing, especially for people who often find poetry too difficult to comprehend, but that's just not my flavor of poetry. i like to be awed. i like feeling vindicated when i reread a poem three times and finally grasp the meaning. i like words that explode in my chest and burn in the back of my throat. i also didn't feel like the "note to selves" were personal, but rather vague and generalized. it's like stepping out in the rain and going, "now i'm wet." duh. that's a universal fact. but i will say the small illustrations were cute, and the reminders of one's self-worth might be necessary for another reader.
