It’s been FOREVER since I last talked about poetry, so here we go!
Top Five Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Lainey @GingerReadsLainey and she has passed down the torch to Sam @ThoughtsOnTomes. For more information and for future topics you can check out the goodreads group.
As we still have no topics for the regular T5W, I decided to choose one myself. I love poetry and I feel like I don’t talk about it enough on here so this was the perfect opportunity. Without further ado, here are five poetry books I absolutely love 🥰
The Witch Doesn’t Burn In This One by Amanda Lovelace
I love how empowering Amanda Lovelace’s poems are, so of course I had to mention one of her books. And while I loved the first one, I think I enjoyed The Witch Doesn’t Burn In This One even better! I have yet to read the third one in the series, and you will definitely hear my thoughts on this one when I have! 😍
The Sun and her Flowers by Rupi Kaur
Again, I also love Rupi Kaur’s poetry. Her poems are beautiful and moving, and they hit right where it hurts when it comes to my awkwardness, and my anxiety, and how I feel about relationships. The Sun and her Flowers was absolutely beautiful, and I will always cherish this book.
Soft in the Middle by Shelby Eileen
I discovered Shelby Eileen over the summer, and completely fell in love with her poems. They are both beautiful and moving which are quite frankly my main criteria when it comes to loving poetry. I can’t wait to read more of her books.
The Last Time I’ll Write About You by Dawn Lanuza
I have to admit that I am weak for romantic poems, and poems about long lost love, so of course, I enjoyed this book from the bottom of my heart, and I highly recommend you to check it out. 🥰
Bright Minds, Empty Souls by Jennae Cecelia
I discovered Jennae Cecelia with this book, so of course it will always have a spiecial place in my heart. Since then, I’ve been following her on Instagram and loving everything she does, and I have read several of her poetry collections. Her writing really speaks to me on so many levels, and I am grateful for it.
Talking about these books fills me with WARMTH and satisfaction and I love them so much. I tried to be a bit original in my picks and succeeded more or less I guess? Feel free to share more recommendations in the comments!
