Suggestions for National Poetry Month

I’ve been working steadily on my poetry, knowing that I have been failing this month every year and I’m hoping to finally have my first good poetry month. While I know there are a great many wonderful men out there who are poets, this blog strives to promote women writers as diversely as possible for now. In that spirit, I’m only mentioning the women poets I’ve read and I would love to hear suggests from readers as well.

As you can see, my experience with poetry, particularly women poets, has been small (though men poets are not much better with me), but things are looking up this year and I hope to add many more to my long term TBR down below.

My TBR for this month: (okay, I worked ahead, but these are the reviews to expect to see this month)

the princess saves herself in this one - Amanda Lovelace  Chasing Utopia - Nikki Giovanni  milk and honey - rupi kaur  Poetry Will Save Your Life: A Memoir by [Bialosky, Jill] Floating, Brilliant, Gone

Poets I’ve read:

Brown Girl Dreaming - Jacqueline Woodson  Map: Collected and Last Poems - Wisława Szymborska,Clare Cavanagh,Stanisław Barańczak  Madwomen: The   Water Sings Blue: Ocean Poems - Kate Coombs,Meilo So

Poets I’d like to read sometime:

Beauty is a Verb: The New Poetry of DisabilityIn Mad Love and Warwe carry the sky

What are you reading for National Poetry Month?

I’d also love to hear about your reviews of any of these books or suggestions for next year, so leave a link or title in the comments if you have it!
