2 excellent books of poetry


Sharks in the RiversSharks in the Rivers by Ada Limon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Animals, lots of sharks but others, make a lot of appearance in this book in which Limon explores her heritage and the world, exploring dangerous places and exposing herself and us to the richness and threats of the world. I came to this one after reading a couple of her later books and while this collection is strong, she has definitely grown as a poet since. Still, a strong book by a strong poet. Recommended.



The Ninety-Third Name of God: PoemsThe Ninety-Third Name of God: Poems by Anya Krugovoy Silver

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A powerful, poignant collection of poems as a woman of faith confronts the changes and challenges of breast cancer, including coping with the aftermath of chemo and a mastectomy and raising a young son. Beautiful and often heart-breaking, but not without humor or levity, this collection is highly recommended.
