Here I’ve compiled the remaining reviews from the books I read in 2017. There are 15 reviews in total, and I apologize if there are any typos or formatting issues since I haven’t really proofread them (oops). But, without further ado, here are my reviews:
So you may have noticed that I’ve been a bit AWOL lately, and that’s because I just haven’t been in the right head space for a few weeks. But now I’m back in action, okay? Am I forgiven?
Because of this, I’m really behind on reviews. What I’ve decided to do is combine all of my remaining June and July reviews into this one post. It shouldn’t be toooo long because I’m going to make the reviews short, but we’ll see. (Spoiler: It’s kinda long.)

This post is a bit different from my usual ones because, in the past ten days or so, I’ve read five collections of poetry by Mary Oliver, which is all that we have in the stacks at work. It feels kind of satisfying to have read everything your local library has of one author in its collection. This of course isn’t all that Mary Oliver has written, but I feel like it’s a good overview. So that’s why this is a sort of bulk review, which will mostly be quick snapshots of each book including my favorite poems from each. They are ordered according to when I read them.
Summary: A collection of poems covering biracial identity, loss, and fatherhood.
Favorite Poems: “Umpteenth,” “Kundiman,” “Ellipses,” and “Little Anodynes”
