THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOUSE
"My world was ending. It was 2018 and all of California was on fire." For the next two years, Taylor spent her days searching for a soft place to rest her head at night, sleeping mostly in cars, hotels, and other people's houses. She made her way across the country three times, and even found herself in London for a bit. There's No Place Like House is a true story of an adventure across America, navigating the unusual dating landscape of Los Angeles, getting caught up in the European underbelly of New Orleans, and finding respite within the dusty artists dwellings in New England, all while trying to make it to New York City in the midst of a global pandemic.
As she's fumbled her way from Palmdale CA to where ever it is she's found herself now, Taylor Bradley has written a collection of poems/poetic prose that reflects her unique view of reality. Rapidly approaching a quarter-life crisis, and newly diagnosed, she writes with an abundance of passion and confusion, sprinkled with the kind of absurdity and pretension that only a narcissistic millennial can achieve.
This is Taylor's second collection of poetry, short-stories, plays, and observations. She's decided to work on being her best self without medication, so this is the result of what happens when you remove all of the barriers between you and your demons. She's started a new chapter of her journey which is made up of consistent traveling, taking more risks, and crafting the life she knows she deserves.
BARNES AND NOBLE REVIEWS
Taylor has a way with words that is natural and effortless. She pulls you in, gets you attached, and then leaves you wanting more. I loved this book and would highly recommend it to anyone who loves poetry, stories, wit, honesty, and those who just love to read!
Side Effects is a powerful collection of poems, short stories, and plays. It handles heavy topics such as depression and anxiety with intense honesty, which makes you want to read it cover to cover. The beauty of this book, besides the writing, is you can pick and choose which pieces to read based on the mood you're in or the struggle you want some insight to. Each section leaves you thinking more than the last and it is a great collection to have for young adults and anyone who feels alone. Ms. Bradley makes it clear to her readers that they are not alone. I highly recommend this book to young readers, readers who like a quick read , and anyone who finds themselves struggling with the darkness.
"Side Effects" is a wonderful collection of odd short stories, poems, and thoughts. I am not a reader of long, lengthy novels because I can never get myself to dedicate enough time to them. This book is perfect for a quick read. It is honest and charming about heavy topics such as depression and self identity, but presents as quirky stream of consciousness. Taylor Bradley doesn't put on any pretense in her writing. It is straight forward and thought provoking. I highly recommend for young adults!
