I am impressed by the creative scope of his work, and admire his ability to express emotions about relationships, pride, and art that everyone will be able to relate to, combined with the typography aesthetic that has its own appeal. However, his poetry isn't particularly deep or significantly moving, and is actually quite basic. I think I would have enjoyed poetry like this back when I was twelve years old and just starting to write love poems about imaginary lovers, myself—a much simpler time in my life. The content of Love Her Wild will appeal primarily to middle-grade readers, particular preteen and teen girls, as they span the topics of pure and young love, wanderlust, and the importance of inner beauty.
That said, there are a few poems that truly stood out to me: Love could be labeled poison and we'd drink it anyways and When it comes to love we are primates breaking sticks while pointing to our hearts. There's just a charming simplicity and vulnerability to both of them. If all his poems were as effective as those two, I'd be much more inclined to recommend him to audiences other than teenagers.
Although in the end, this isn't fiction like I normally review but rather poetry, which is an entirely different art form; while Love Her Wild isn't groundbreaking to me, it can certainly be appreciated by anyone who knows what to make of it.
Pros: Plenty of poems to enjoy in the three different "chapters": Love, Her, and Wild // Beautiful black-and-white images in a softbound edition—would make a great gift or coffee table book // Atticus certainly has a way with words and some of the poems are touching
Cons: Much of the content is quite teen-angsty and melodramatic, attempting to be ~deep~ through simple, unstructured verse
Verdict: As Atticus's first print poetry compilation, Love Her Wild speaks to his success as an Internet-famous writer who has touched the hearts of young-and-in-love budding romantics, especially among adolescent audiences. The minimalistic style and tender words of this syrupy volume make it pleasant to read, aesthetically appealing, and highly quotable, especially through visual mediums (e.g. Instagram posts). I would not be surprised to see excerpts of Love Her Wild widely quoted in the mainstream.
Rating: 7 out of 10 hearts (3.5 stars): Not perfect, but overall enjoyable; would recommend, but borrow a copy before you buy!

his writing shines a spotlight on the magic in moments of simplicity—like a quiet night catching lightening bugs, a first kiss, or an unforgettable conversation filled with wisdom from your grandfather. they seem insignificant, but as you read 'love her wild' you realize how life-defining they truly are.
atticus is know for being the most tattoo-able and instagram-able poet, and while 'love her wild' features some of instagram's favorites ('i hope to arrive to my death late, in love, and a little drunk'), atticus also includes some new, beautiful prose that brought me to tears and will surely have you remembering lost love, yearning for someone you have yet to meet, or planning your next adventure.
if you're anything like me, 'love her wild' will make you smile, laugh, think, and move you to tears. it's a must-have collection of poetry for the wild dreamer who still believes in magic.
