#BookReview Dreams and Other Lastings by RJ Sobel

32177628

Dreams and Other Lastings was a beautiful set of poems that left me breathless and feeling warm (despite it being the “winter” Season).

I truly loved these poems – I always love a good set of poetry, but I could really relate to these stories. This isn’t a long book, and isn’t filled to the brim with poems, but the content within them makes this small set of poems worth every single word.

Reflection, aging, and memory are just three of the many topics discussed within these poems. I found myself reflecting on my own life and finding ways to see how these poems mirror situations I’ve had. For example, wanting to write someone and letter and reflecting on life, the good and the bad. It was so beautifully written, it almost pains me to think this was the last of the four books (of course, I could find the first three in the series to fill that void to fix that problem).

I 100% recommend Dreams and Other Lastings to anyone who wants a quick read, something to relate to, or just some good, old-fashioned poetry to warm their nights.

Five out of five stars.

#BookReview Journey Through Love by Tracey Niday

29839374

Journey Through Love was a cute, short book of poetry that illustrates what it’s like to be in love.

I do enjoy some poetry, and this book was a great read! It’s a beautiful collection of poems based on being in love. It was very cute, and had wonderful descriptions! It’s a definite read for someone looking for a short but sweet read!

My one issue with this set of poems was there didn’t seem to be a set theme to the poems. No specific theme other than love – no iambic pentameter, etc. All of the poems seemed to be made the same way – kind of random – and it made me get quite bored. The poetry was beautiful, but I would have loved for the poems to change meter or word choice, anything different to make it unique!

Three out of five stars! Beautifully written, but it didn’t wow my socks off.

#BookReview Poetry for Strangers by Elisabeth Sharp McKetta

Poetry for Strangers was a beautiful, breath-taking set of poems!

I loved this little book! It was by far the cutest set of poems I have ever read. Each poem is based on a single word, and tells a wonderful story. All of the stories within the poems are different, but they are flawless and smooth. I couldn’t ask for a better set of poems.

It was by far a quick read, since there are only about 50 poems in this set. But, that doesn’t mean there is a lack of quality since there is a lack in quantity.

Overall, I loved this book!

Four out of five stars!
