    Raw, Real & Lovely As I read the words of this collection of poetry, I felt the weight of each word, the pain, hurt, sorrow and grief. By the end of the book, I also felt hope, light, love and happiness. But what I felt most throughout this reading was authenticity. And that, my dear, is what I am always longing and looking for in books. Humanity. And I find that here. Thank you for your bravery, authenticity and humanity, Molly. I look forward to reading your future works. xo, Rach

    85% relatable for me. I'm in awe of the realness and complexity of emotions packed into this! It's so tough to put your story out there, so I applaud Molly for doing so. It takes strength as a women to put your voice on paper. I'm amazed! 85% relatable for me. I'm in awe of the realness and complexity of emotions packed into this!

    "So many women's stories are exactly the same And we sit here thinking we are to blame That it's perfectly okay to be treated this way When it comes to our bodies we don't have a say How about teaching a man something new When a woman says no, she's telling the truth She's not being flirty, mysterious, funny Her name is not "sweetie" not "Baby", or "Honey" Just because she's a woman doesn't make her incomplete We are human beings We're not pieces of meat.

    I don't feel entirely comfortable reviewing this. It was clearly deeply personal to the author - I feel that commenting on something so raw would be in poor taste.

It just didn't have that affect on me. As for the writing, I did enjoy that. Overall you can tell the writer poured herself in this book.

    I didn't expect it to form an attachment with little amount of page. Full review to follow. Emotional, deals with sexual harassment, eating disorder, self harm, depression, suicidal. Definitely not for teens nor, recommending it with depressed or emotional people, it could be triggering. Reading it felt, my happiness was sucked into void. There are parts about women empowerment. And some encouraging messages on copping up with these serious problems. But kudos to molly for being brave to share it I didn't expect it to form an attachment with little amount of page.

    In truth, I'd rate this a 2.5 star. This has such a beautiful cover and evocative title that suggests truth, groth, evolution, and change....and yet the poems remain static. The topics covered here--depression, anxiety, rape, eating disorders, femenism--are greatly important to shed light on and properly discuss, but these poems blended together. They hold the same sentiment, the same tone, across the pages. When I read poetry, I want movement and growth--something to show that the poet is human In truth, I'd rate this a 2.5 star.

These topics are so important, but they're naturally different emotions. I'd like to have seen each topic treated with the level of passion and detail they deserve.

    3/5 Holy crap, the ending was so beautiful. I connected with more of the poems towards the middle and mainly at the end, but she puts her soul into this book with such raw emotion that I want to go up to her and give her a hug. There were quite a few poems that I personally couldn't connect with, but could understand how they could make a person feel. Such an underrated book and wish more people would read this! 3/5 Holy crap, the ending was so beautiful.

    From page one my heart shattered but in a good way. To see a woman courageously opening her heart with pain she experienced but put back together beautifully. It shows the power in pain and each page personified this. Wonderful read!

The poet shares a lot of personal experiences through her writing that were either a hit or a miss. I'm personally not a fan of short poems and appreciated the longer ones. There were a couple forms of techniques where the poet uses multiple examples of rhymes and repetition. Most poems were free verse poems (correct me if I am wrong, please). Overall, I was able to relate to couple of the poems and particularly liked the "Buds of Hope" poetry collection section because of the hopeful outlook of life that the poet cultivated and is cultivating.

    I was honestly blown away by this poetry collection. I related to so much of Molly's struggles and she exemplified trauma, eating disorders and the struggle with ongoing mental health and getting onto the road of healing so so well. I went through this book particularly slowly, over the course of many many months but I wanted it to last. I hadn't known this book existed until I went to order some other poetry books and this one was advertised as a similar one. And I am so so glad that it was!

You can really feel the raw intensity of emotions as Molly wrote this all and thats what really makes amazing poetry.

    Poetry for me is an eye-opening experience. You step into the soles of the shoes of another but ironically enough because the human experience is mirrored through triumphs and pain, you will find some of ‘you’ in the pages of Bare Roots. No matter whether you’ve gone through similar traumatic experiences as Hillery: sexual assault and rape anorexia, addictions, and self-harm depression and suicidal thoughts suicide attempts or overall just feeling like a burden to the people you love. My favorite piece Poetry for me is an eye-opening experience.

No matter whether you’ve gone through similar traumatic experiences as Hillery: sexual assault and rape anorexia, addictions, and self-harm depression and suicidal thoughts suicide attempts or overall just feeling like a burden to the people you love. My favorite piece in this collection was a piece called What They Don’t Tell You In College which poignantly pens the struggle between feeding on the lies they sell you about growing up and adulthood and the reality as painful as it may be, as it is. Bare Roots will act as new soil and help you water the roots of the trauma so you can start anew, flourish and thrive.

    This book is a hauntingly beautiful story that will break you into a million pieces and gently put you back together. It is truly relatable on so many levels, even if you haven’t gone through the exact same things as Molly. she says things with a type of boldness that others couldn’t bear to whisper. I couldn’t put this book down. Addicting, brilliant, and raw, I absolutely loved reading this.

    *1.5 I know bare roots is Molly S. Hillery’s heart splayed across these pages. I mean no disrespect to her Truth or art. I hope bare roots allowed her to profit from her trauma, and maybe even get a little bit better in the process. But as a reader, I am disappointed in these poems. I feel like I’m visiting a foreign country—a culture separate to my own. I’m not able to grasp onto an entire community’s suffering in a mere 217 predominantly blank pages. And then there’s the language barrier. Her p *1.5 I know bare roots is Molly S. Hillery’s heart splayed across these pages. I mean no disrespect to her Truth or art.

I guess that sums up the poetry, too. Simple. Blurry.

    A book to change minds and views TW The themes in this poetry book include rape and self harm. Bare roots is necessary. It gives a voice to women who were never taught to speak up against their abusers. It is a self help book, therapeutic to the author and probably to readers suffering from similar traumas or negative thoughts around their self worth. It is not always sophisticated in imagery and some ideas are repeated, but this is a well considered book with a view to change the world.

    Out of all the poetry books, I read this is my favorite. At the beginning there's a message from the author, Molly, that explains why she choose to name the book bare roots. There are six chapters all about different subjects but they all come together and make sense. This is a very deep book and can be a lot to take in at once. I did cry while reading it. At the end of the book, the last chapter is all about overcoming all her struggles and how you can keep going and it's very moving and I like Out of all the poetry books, I read this is my favorite.
