Poetry – Review

With a deadline looming, I’ve only been able to read 1 novel so far in 2018. I am very okay with that and have been finding time to squeeze in reading time for quite a few poetry collections on work breaks, and lunches. I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you.

More Than Bread was a beautiful collection. Definitely a 5 star for me. The conversation between the girl and the star was mesmerizing. I do not often relate to poetry about positivity, but this collection got to me. It made me want to be softer, more open. I loved this collection so much that I ordered the paperback even though I happened to find this book when the ebook was free.

Trista Mateer is honestly one of my favorite poets out now. I leave every collection feeling like I know her better. Her words are unique, intimate, honest. Her poetry is not one-size-fits-all. Every piece has unique details about her life and the lover she is writing about scattered within.

I have read every collection she has out but was waiting for the new version of this one to come out, as I have it pre-ordered. When I saw the ebook of the 1st edition was free with KU I jumped at the chance to read it. I will also be reading the new version.

You can read the 1st edition here, and pre-order the new version here.

Corazón was mesmerizing. The imagery, the longing, the vivid family history. Yesika is new to me, and I will pick up everything she puts out now.

My favorite pieces were My Depression Has Questions, Motherhood, and Familiar.
