Lately I have been really into poetry. I normally read a lot, but for some reason poetry has been a theme the last couple of weeks. These books are the kind I want to put out on my coffee table and share with my friends. So here are a few pieces I’ve picked up that I think are worth the read.
1. Adultolescence by Gabbie Hanna
This is currently one of my favorites. It is filled with poetry that is cohesive yet offers a variety of emotions and literary devices. All of the drawings are also done by the author and really add to the experience of the reading. I really couldn’t say enough good things about this book.
2. Depression & Other Magic Tricks by Sabrina Benaim
This book is sitting on my coffee table right now. I find Benaim’s writing to be so honest and raw. I really appreciate the reality she produces on a page. Benaim puts into words thoughts that seem so impossible to put into words.
3. The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur
Rupi Kaur is one of my favorite poets. I had this book preordered on Amazon, and it was a great investment. It is a book that I can find something new in each time I read it.
Poetry is very near and dear to my heart, and lately has been my coffee table center piece. All of these books are reader friendly and address some very important topics. If you have yet to find your love for poetry I would definitely recommend giving these books a look.
