avolation asked: Hello, Caroline! I'm in the mood to read (aka I write for Her Campus BC and my next article is a book review) but haven't read anything that wasn't assigned in far too long. Any recommendations that will be enthralling, but also manageable for the rusty reader? You always have great ones!
Hello! I hope I’m not too late on this! I always recommend this one, but Truman Capote’s Summer Crossing is short and lovely and perfect for warmer weather that’s on its way here. I couldn’t put down The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls. Enjoy whatever you choose!
aparigraha asked: I want to start reading poetry? any recommendations on where to start?
I think you should start with whatever calls your name. Don’t force yourself to read anything you don’t like. I fell in love with poetry by reading the collected works of Anne Sexton, but there are so many other amazing poets out there. Browsing your local bookstore for the ones that speak to you is half the fun.
Other suggestions for new poetry fans?
