Hello Poetteers,
We are reaching the last week of 2018. I wanted to share my thoughts on the last few poetry books I’ve read. I love vulnerable poems that share personal experiences. I’m tired of vague poems about love. You’ll see that below.


From 14 to 41 by Suzanne Purewal

3.5 stars
Some pieces were sweet and empowering. I love the pieces about nature and can relate to some of the sorrow. Though, the romance isn’t my style. I also enjoyed the imagery in the poems and the illustrations.


Shame Is an Ocean I Swim Across: Poems by Mary Lambert

5 stars
This is powerful and heartbreaking as Mary shares personal thoughts and experiences about heavy topics. I appreciate the glimpses of self love.

Soft Thorns by bridgett devoue

3. 5 stars
This feels like an average collection filled with vague love poems. The pieces that stood out to me are the ones of heartbreak and healing.
