Now let’s take a look at the poetry books we recommend you read at least once before deciding whether you like or don’t like poetry.
‘Milk and Honey’ by Rupi Kaur
Rupi Kaur has touched many people with her poetry time and time again. Her book ‘Milk and Honey’ is a collection of poems talking about violence, love, loss, abuse, and femininity. The theme of the book is mainly survival and how to deal with the different pains of life. The book is divided into four chapters and each of these chapters has a different theme or meaning to them.
The book overall takes the reader on a journey through the most bitter moments in life and shows them how to find the sweetness or how to survive in such moments.
You can find this e-book on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and many more bookstores. Whether you want audiobooks, a paperback, or just an e-book, you will find it in multiple bookstores across the U.S. Milk and Honey happens to be Rupi Kaur’s first book that she published in 2014. She later released her second book ‘The Sun and her Flowers’ in 2017 and it gained just as much popularity as the first book.
‘Her’ by Pierre Alex Jeanty
Pierre Alex Jeanty has written ‘Her’ as a form of guide for men and women alike. The way this book was written, it is the perfect reflection of a woman, no matter how different they are and their nature. The book is generally written as if from the perspective of a man, to help other men get an idea or a clue as to how women can be. Of course, this is one of the reasons this book is a winner among both: men and women alike.
There is no specific theme to this book, and just as the name suggests, it is generally about women and communication, self-love, finding closure, letting go, and much more. Whether you are seeking inspiration or trying to move on, and even if you are struggling with finding closure, you are bound to find something in this book that might give you the boost you need!
‘Pillow Thoughts’ by Courtney Peppernell
If you have already read and loved Rupi Kaur’s ‘Milk and Honey’, you’re going to love this book too. Courtney Peppernell has talked about a range of topics in her poetry book like loss, self-love, self-help, love, relationships, and more. One thing you should know about this book is that it plays on raw emotions and thus, it makes for the perfect read on bad days when you need some hope and courage.
Topics such as heartbreak and love are mostly targeted and as it turns out, these are also the strongest of emotions. Such intense topics make this book the perfect read if you’re feeling like grabbing a meaningful read at home or a café with some coffee or a cup of tea.
‘Sunflower Soul’ by Distinee Gayle
Distinee Gayle writes about topics such as heartbreak, love, and most of all, identity. Living as a human means you are bound to face problems and struggles in life. It helps to have some sort of support or motivation to face these problems. In ‘Sunflower Soul’, Distinee has detailed both of these things. How there is pain and how there is beauty in living; both of these things have been described in her book. She has artistically connected both of these ideas too.
For someone facing some serious struggles in life, you might just find that this book is quite helpful in making you understand, accept, and adjust to different changes in your life. Just put it on your ‘To read’ list, and you won’t regret it!
‘Love Her Wild’ by Atticus
If you’ve been on Instagram lately, you might have come across some of Atticus’s pieces. Starting from Instagram, the young writer has managed to garner attention from all over the world. His first poetry book, ‘Love Her Wild’ captures the smallest and the biggest moments in anyone’s life, be it a girl or a boy. He has a way with words and plays with the readers’ sentiments by turning something simple into something magical!
Even if it’s talking about the lowest point in someone’s life, Atticus uses the perfect words and sentences to turn it into something special. Besides his focus on turning simple things romantic, he has a love for adventure that you can tell through his poetry as well. Oh, and if you fall in love with his words, then you will be delighted to know he has three more books besides ‘Love Her Wild’!
The thing about poetry is that it carries a ring of truth, which is probably the reason why people love and relate to it so much. Poetry is written with emotion and is meant to touch your emotions as well. This is why whether it is sad, happy, sentimental, or any other sort of poem, it really plays on your emotions.
People like to find something they can relate to, whether it is in the form of a friend, a family member, or anything of that sort.
This is why we recommend that you read a bit of it yourself, in case you haven’t yet, and see if it is something you enjoy as well. And if you don’t, of course, then that is just your preference and taste!
