Last #5OnMyTBR of April! How was this month for you guys?
I managed to be somehow productive but this whole sitting at home deal is making me sleep wayy too much!
#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook (me!) and you can learn more about it here or in the post announcing it. It occurs every Monday when we post about 5 books on our TBR.
This week’s prompt is Poetry!
How do you feel about poetry? For me it’s mostly hit or miss but I know some people have preferences or hate modern poetry or even don’t read them at all.
Which one of those are you?
|| Without Protection by Gala Mukomolova ||
💛 Baba Yaga!!
First of all, I LOVE this cover!! This grandma WILL curse you!!
As a Slav I love all things Slavic (except for the xenophobia) so I NEED THIS!! Especially if it’s gay.
|| Blood Water Paint by Joy McCullough ||
💛 about iconic painter Artemisia Gentileschi
💛 I think it’s a novel mixed with poetry?
💛 tw rape
Artemisia Gentileschi is a fascinating renaissance painter — she was very tallented and was not afraid to paint women expressive and not maiden-like. Check out her works!!
|| Honeybee by Trista Mateer||
💛 the title is on brand
I’ve read another book by this author but this one has been on my TBR for far longer.
It’s about letting things go and walking away from people and people walking away from you.
But most of all — it’s called honeybee so I just NEED to read it.
|| Crush by Richard Siken ||
💛 obsession and love
This is a favourite book of one of the bloggers I trust and have some similar tastes with so I have a feeling I will love this one.
Aslo, the GoodReads blurb intrigues me with “His poetry is confessional, gay, savage, and charged with violent eroticism.“
|| Ariel by Sylvia Plath ||
💛 mental health
I’ve meant to get to Silvia Plath’s works for some time now and yet here I am still not reading any of them.
Hopefully I’ll read this one soon and then try The Bell Jar as well!
Do you have any requests for prompts in June? I want to make at least some of them Pride Month themed but, as always, I’ll be glad to hear your ideas!
- Do you participate in #5OnMyTBR?
- Do you have any of those on your TBR?
- Have you read them maybe? (Make me read them then!!)
- What poetry books do you have on your TBR and/or have you read recently?
