This is one of my favorite collections of essays EVER! Chloe Caldwell is a writer who mixes depression, anxiety, and humor all into one big weird emotion that leaves her readers feeling some type of empty. Yes. Just yes.
SPACE! Who doesn't love it? A must-read for anyone interested in what goes on outside of our tiny Earth.
Ocean Vuong is one of the most influential young poets of color writing right now. This debut collection forms relationships, breaks them down, and analyzes them in a very lyrical way.
Danez Smith's debut collection of poetry is a freaking powerhouse. Topics of race, sexuality, & gender are showcased majorly throughout these poems in different forms, describing Smith's life as a queer person of color. This is a book that should be read by everyone, poetry fan or not!
