Poetry Collections I’ve Been Reading (and Loving) Lately!

One genre of books I never read for the longest time was poetry. Whenever I thought of poetry, I automatically remembered all the old, boring poems I had to read for middle school English classes. However, I’ve read some poetry collections this past year that have become new favorites. In case you are like past Liv, never fear! Here are four recommendations!

WHEN WE WONDER BY FATIMA ALSUWAIDI

I actually picked up WHEN WE WONDER because Fatima contacted me about a copy in exchange for a review. However, I’ve fallen so in love with the collection. The doodles inside are adorable, and it’s a self-published Muslim author! It has become a fast favorite of mine. You can read my full review here!

THIS IS NOT A SPECTACLE BY ISABELLE CHARLOTTE KENYON

I received THIS IS NOT A SPECTACLE from Isabelle, and I ended up really enjoying it! It explores different people’s lives and perspectives on them. I went into it not sure what to expect, but I ended up really loving it!

WE CARRY THE SKY BY MCKAYLA ROBBIN

I actually read this collection during the summer, but I wanted to include it in here because it seems to be forgotten quite often! If you loved MILK AND HONEY or THE PRINCESS SAVES HERSELF IN THIS ONE, you will ADORE this one. The collection is all about feminism, rape culture, and women in society.

  1. we carry the sky is so incredibly amazing and inspiring :’) i think it’s amazing how different modern poetry is to older poetry, but they both touch the heart in similar ways ❤
