@Clwojick here‘s my girl Sietje in her favorite sleeping pose. 😂

I loved The Poet X on audio. If you haven‘t heard it yet I‘d recommend it. I love hearing the poetry in the author‘s voice. It‘s not a book of poetry- but the main character writes. 💕👍

Wow! I devoured these verses. The poetry was beautiful and Elizabeth Acevedo's voice shines through as very powerful and genuine. The book reminded me of how I wrote angry poetry when I was a teenager as a coping mechanism. It made all the difference. The questions Xiomara has about theology are the same kind I grappled with. It made me feel understood. I did think things wrapped up a little too neatly at the end.

hermyknee I never had a chance to finish this one because a kid borrowed it from my classroom library, but I think I‘m going to listen to it on audio! Glad to hear you liked it! 2w
Eggbeater @hermyknee I've heard the audio version is even better and shouldn't be missed out on. I plan on listening to it too. 2w

This poem shook me. This is the point that I got super sucked into the book and ended up staying up late to finish it. Acevedo's poetry gives Xiomara an incredible voice in a powerful coming of age story. I don't remember the last time I was so moved by a book - I cried at the end (literal tears) and I NEVER cry at books. The closest I ever got was the beginning of Harry Potter 7. This one had me weeping by the end due to its beauty. 5+🌟

SaturnDoo I never cry at books either. I didn't like this book so it didn't make me cry either. I'm happy that you enjoyed though😊 3w
bookandcat @SaturnDoo I used to work with students much like the main character so I think it hit me extra hard. I personally loved the writing style but I know it's not for everyone. 3w
SaturnDoo @bookandcat I think connecting with the MC was part of my issue. I can see where it would hit you a lot harder. I love the writing style/format but for me it just didn't deliver the way I expected it to. 😢😢 3w
bookandcat @SaturnDoo I can see why it would be a hard read then, the writing probably felt more cold or disconnected in your case. I was so in the MC's head that I think that's what made me cry at parts during the end - was feeling her feelings too hard! 3w

This book—💜💜💜

I am blown away by how much Acevedo packs into this novel in verse. Doubt, faith, religion, gender, race, finding your voice, poetry, first love, family, fraught mother-daughter relationships...and the intersection of all the above. This is a powerful, powerful book and I‘d highly recommend it. I listened to it on audio, and would highly recommend that format as well!

Book # 3 completed (last week) for the #bookfitnesschallenge.

The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple. Psalm 119:130
I love this quote, because even though it‘s not about poetry, it IS about poetry. It‘s about any of the words that bring us together & how we can form a home in them....learning to believe in the power of my own words has been the most freeing experience of my life. It has brought me the most light. Isn‘t that what a poem is? A lantern glowing in the dark.

...Jesus feels like a friend
I‘ve had my whole childhood,

who has suddenly become brand new;
who invites himself over too often, who texts me too much.

A friend I just don‘t think I need anymore.
(I know, I know...even writing that is blasphemous.)

But I don‘t know how to tell Mami that this year,
it‘s not about feeling unready,
it‘s about knowing that this doubt has already been confirmed.

Every day I searched for new songs,
and it was like applying for asylum.

I just needed someone to help me escape
from all the silence.

I just needed people saying words
about the things that hurt them.

...and even that young I learned music can become a bridge
between you and a total stranger.

In other reading news, I have WAY too many book club/buddy reads going in May. One down, three to go!

I had meetings most of the morning and worked from home this afternoon, so my “at work” walk became a walk around my church‘s campus while my husband warms up for his piano service tonight. We have a community garden, using boats as the raised beds—and what would a church garden be without cheesy religious puns? 😂

I started the tagged book on audio this morning and am loving it! Forgot my headphones tonight, though. 😢#bookfitnesschallenge

I needed a new audio and grabbed this on a whim, didn‘t even read the synopsis which is not something I do.
It turned out to be a coming of age type story and I loved this so much!! Now, first let me say that I wouldn‘t have enjoyed this as a print version. Why? Because it has a lot of Spanish in it and since I don‘t read/speak Spanish it wouldn‘t have worked.
The narrator for this one was wonderful, authentic accent and beautiful Spanish.

ItsAngel Had I read this is print, I would‘ve driven myself crazy trying to sound out and pronounce the Spanish in my head. Having it read to me in Spanish and then told what it meant in English, it was amazing. I totally recommend this in audio version! 1mo

I LOVED this book! I finished it all today; it was quite a quick read. I have always enjoyed novels written in verse and this was no exception. My heart broke for Xiomara in many parts. I don‘t want to give anything away, but I highly recommend this book!

Kathrin I have had this on my TBR for a while. I am glad you like it. Did you read it audio or regular? I was planning on listening to it, but I don't know, if that makes sense for poetry.

Caterina @Kathrin Just jumping in here - I was lucky that my library had both audio and physical, so I did both at the same time and honestly I'd highly recommend that. It feels like you're missing pieces if you only do one or the other. This book blew me away! 2mo

This is the first book I have read that's written in verse, and I actually really enjoyed it. It's a quick read that most women will be able to relate to. Xiomara is a NY teen that's finding herself, and having to deal with a lot of life's crap along the way. Having a strict mother isn't making it any easier on her. While this book deals with some emotional teenage and family issues, none of the topics addressed are too heavy.

I was both intrigued by this book and hesitant to read it, because I'm not the kind of person who sits down with a book of poetry and just reads through it. But this worked as a compelling narrative as well as poetry, and I loved it. It actually deserves the hype. It deals with the raw and confusing emotions of high school in a lyrical way.

Young Dominican girl in Harlem finds herself and her voice through slam poetry. Her mother is very religious and as a recovering Catholic I found thos parts not fun to read, but powerful.

Definitely recommend as audio as the author, a alam poet award winner, narrates.

I loved this 💗
It‘s a YA novel told in verse. So it‘s like 150 - 200 + poems - easy to read, and addicting.
Told in verse, You get all the emotional impact, with none of the melodrama.
A coming-of-age tale of a young Dominica, trying to sort out her feelings about her twin, her parents, her body, boys, God, and her passion for writing. Really glad I read this!

The Poet X is one of my favorite books ever. It is a RF novel written in verse. This book is the first of Elizabeth Acevedo and it has already been on the NYT best sellers list as well as the 2018 National Book Award Finalist. In this story, X is a young girl in Harlem who discovers slam poetry as a way to use her voice. This book does touch on controversial topics, so it would be best for older students. #LAE3414sp19

hkeiger One thing that I love about this book is that some of the poetry is written in Spanish. There are english translations right after, but to me, the Spanish poetry adds more realism to the text. I would use this as an IR in my classroom (older ages) and have students create their own poetry after. 2mo
hkeiger The teachers guide that I found for this book is helpful because some of the topics in this book are loaded. This guide includes different discussion questions and writing prompts to help with the classroom integration! https://b0f646cfbd7462424f7a-f9758a43fb7c33cc8adda0fd36101899.ssl.cf2.rackcdn.co...

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Harlem teen Xiomara Batista, daughter of Dominican immigrants, finds solace in her tumultuous world by jotting poetry in her journal. It‘s through this she finds confidence and discovers the vast power in the written and spoken word. Elizabeth Acevedo has created something really special here; a narrative thoughtfully composed of verse poetry, broaching sensitive issues. It‘s just gorgeous.
