Book Reviews

salt. – nayyirah waheed

Hey babies, another poetry book review here for you.

I don’t know what it is but lately I have really been getting into poetry books, plus when I find them on amazon for a really good price I just snatch them up!!

I just finished salt. and I don’t know how I feel about it.  This book didn’t make me really feel anything, I mean some of the poems were very relatable and had me like “DAM” but it didn’t do anything that was considered over the top for me.

I think that the people who would like this book are immigrant’s either coming from the caribbean or even africa as things along those lines were mentioned.  I know that the author is a women of colour and so I am, so that was one thing that I could definitely relate to when reading a lot of these poems.

I understood where she was coming from with certain things, I felt certain feelings that she was writing about, I had the same thoughts that she had when she was writing some of these poems, so from that standpoint I could really relate to her.

I think I got this book for like $6 on Amazon which I think is a steal so if you see it, I would definitely pick it up.

It wasn’t one of my all time favourites, but it was better then some.
