Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Spoiler alert: I didn't love this as much as everyone did so there's that. I love the message, I really do. I just realized that this is not the poetry style I gravitate to. No, that's wrong, I kind of gravitate to it because it's everywhere? But it's not what makes this heart sing and/or curl up in a ball.

Milk and Honey
Title: Milk and Honey
Author: Rupi Kaur
Publisher: Andrews McMeel Publishing
Date of Publication: October 6, 2015

The book is divided into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose. Deals with a different pain. Heals a different heartache. Milk and Honey takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.

[redacted] + Small Ghost by Trista Mateer

Thursday, May 4, 2017

Today, I'm gonna post hopefully short word vomits on two of Trista Mateer's poetry collections. I've been finding it hard to read fiction recently so I've been reading poetry collections, short story anthologies, and essay collections. And I've been finding it hard to review anything at all so please go easy on me.

[redacted]
Title: [redacted]
Author: Trista Mateer
Date of Publication: February 18, 2017

Taking National Poetry Month’s poem-a-day challenge one step further, for her fourth collection, Trista Mateer has not only compiled a chapbook of her 2016 ‘30 for 30’ poems, but she has also chosen to include nearly everything else written in the month of April. This comes in the form of handwritten notes and poetry fragments, iPhone note poetry, tweets, Craigslist ads, and more. This mix of poetry and prose spans a single month and covers topics such as heartbreak, gender, sexuality, and forgiveness.
