They Don't Kill You Because They're Hungry, They Kill You Because They're FullThey Don't Kill You Because They're Hungry, They Kill You Because They're Full by Mark Bibbins

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Contemporary poetry sometimes is lacking in playfulness and humor. The poems of Mark Bibbins are playful and funny, even at their darkest and most important. Publishers Weekly chose this book as one of the best poetry books of 2014 and it's easy to see why. It has a lot to say about our age of information bombardment and is highly recommended.



Blue Horses: PoemsBlue Horses: Poems by Mary Oliver

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Mary Oliver is one of our most prolific and influential contemporary poets. Her latest book further cements her legacy as she pursues the themes of nature, reflection, and humanity's role in the world. All her books are recommended.
