3.1.17 // Reading list, February 2017

 A bit of an inversion from January, where I read mostly fiction, memoir, or essay, my February was almost entirely poetry. Not anything to complain about, good heavens, no! But I did discover a couple of new-to-me authors whose other works I'm already eager to devour. About half of this list was my first time reading, the rest were revisiting works I'd read before, and still love.

BOOKS I READ IN FEBRUARY:  

  • "Collected Poems"  (Jack Gilbert, poetry)
  • "Blood Dazzler"  (Patricia Smith, poetry) 
  • "Kingdom Animalia"  (Aracelis Girmay, poetry) 
  • "How Her Spirit Got Out"  (Krysten Hill, poetry) 
  • "Hum"  (Jamaal May, poetry) 
  • "Black Movie"  (Danez Smith, poetry) 
  • "The Homeboy Songs"  (Robert Lashley, poetry) 
  • "Incendiary Art"  (Patricia Smith, poetry)
  • "Prelude to Bruise"  (Saeed Jones, poetry) 
  • "The Sellout"  (Paul Beatty, fiction) 
  • "John Henry Days"  (Coleson Whitehead, fiction)
