If any of you are avid book lovers like myself, you realize that sometimes the best reads don’t always come in the form of a 300-page novel with the same storyline from front cover to back cover. Sometimes, the best reads are those that create a different emotion within your soul on each page- in only a few simple lines or stanzas. Each line is a story within itself, and each page leaves you with tears of joy, heartbreak, or a sense of familiarity. Poem books are actually some of my favorite books to read because I know that I can flip to a random page and it’s as if the writer knows exactly what I need to hear at that exact moment.
These four poem books below contain the raw emotion that every person needs to feel a connection to at some point. Even if that just means going to your nearest Barnes & Noble, and simply opening a few pages of these poems to judge their quality for yourself. However, out of the mounds of poem books I have read in my lifetime, none have affected me as much as these four. Nor were any of my poetry book purchases as worth it, moneywise. There’s somehow a poem to accompany every life experience in each of these little paper treasures.
