Connect Five Friday – Poetry Books


It’s time once again for Connect Five Friday, hosted at Book Date by Kathryn – the meme where we share five book/reading things that connect in some way.

April is National Poetry Month. I hope to read at least a poem a day and try to read a couple of poetry books this month.

here are 5 books of poetry to enjoy (with summaries from Goodreads):

2 I own:

A stunning and honest debut poetry collection about the beauty and hardships in being a mother, a wife, and a woman. “

Home bodyshopping

Home Body by Rupi Kaur

“Rupi Kaur constantly embraces growth, and in home body, she walks readers through a reflective and intimate journey visiting the past, the present, and the potential of the self. home body is a collection of raw, honest conversations with oneself ”

3 I hope to read:

Devotions 34272476

Devotions by Mary Oliver

“Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Mary Oliver presents a personal selection of her best work in this definitive collection spanning more than five decades of her esteemed literary career.”

Wilderness 20663737

The Wilderness by Sandra Lim

“Moving through myths of the American landscape, the fatalism of American Puritanism, family history, New England winters, aesthetic theory, and the suavities and anxieties of contemporary life, the poems in this astonishing collection ultimately speak about the individual soul’s struggle with its own meaning.”

Dearly 50706476

Dearly by Margaret Atwood

“In Dearly, Margaret Atwood’s first collection of poetry in over a decade, Atwood addresses themes such as love, loss, the passage of time, the nature of nature and – zombies. Her new poetry is introspective and personal in tone, but wide-ranging in topic.”

  1. Yay for Mary Oliver. I might have said already I want to read more poetry. Was endeavouring to make sense of Gerald Manly Hopkins poem the other day and I like David Whyte’s poetry as well.
