2 Poetry Books By Black Authors I Enjoyed Recently
I love a poetry book. I love how easy the reads are, but how I still manage to leave with so much (if the poems are any good/I’m in the right headspace for them that is). I typically pick up two between longer reads. I don’t always looooove the reads. Sometimes, I only love one or two out of the whole collection. However, I always feel good for giving them a try.

I don’t even rate some books if I can’t think of where to place them due to length, genre or topic. It just depends. But here are ones that weren’t for me, and I acknowledged it.
5 Best Books of 2023
Hey there, I was just going through the books I’ve read last year and just looking into why I read them plus how I felt at the end. Last year was a pretty “interesting” one for me in terms of books. I started waaaay more than I’ve finished (deemed it the DNF YEAR to say the least), but I had some that really captured me. So, without further ado, here are some of my favorite books of the year (5/40 books total last year)
