Sarah Kay is her own genre. She has managed and created her own label and makes it practically impossible for anyone to now synonymously associate slam poetry and protest poetry. In most Youtube slam sensations, a person creates a swell and soft tide of screaming, then whispering, both to keep the audience on their toes… More Dot to Dot [An Illustrated Poem by Sarah Kay]
I thought maybe if I shared my complete August TBR, I’d actually get around to reading each one. I am going to push myself to reach my Goodreads goal (even though I believe less and less in the Goodreads reading challenge each year – that is for a whole other blog though).

I, too, believe the theory that all people are ruined by their first love, even if they do end up marrying and toting the title of “high school sweetheart” or “kissed on the playground at six.” While I watched, Cody from Sister Wives talk to his daughter about how kissing leads to attachments that should… More A book to turn on your weird feels.
The number of post-it notes I used on this book alone could cover a small dog house. Can I say this is the best adult graphic novel ever without having read every other adult graphic novel?

Update: Month of Letters is going quite swimmingly. Daily, I’m happy to unhook that black box at the end of my driveway, above where my mother has planted an assortment of peach flowers. I’ve been enjoying rhyming #2 with “goo” on the lick line of the close of the envelope. And what girl doesn’t love to… More Newsday Tuesday
I’ve found so many things I love for this weeks addition of book news. In fact, this may be my favorite book news…ever. Even though there’s only been like eight weeks of Newsday Tuesday.
