Like a Dream submitted by DBJC on June 15, 2018, 12:08pm If you’ve never read poetry, please, please, try this short collection. As an avid poetry reader, I found Vuong’s lyricism so entrancing and beautiful. He talks about his name, Ocean, his Vietnamese mother, his American father, love, and memory. His words float from the page and create images in your mind that are so beautiful and dreamlike. There isn't a single poem that I didn't like, all of them tugging at the innermost corners of language. A true wordsmith.

Fell Flat for Me submitted by dntanzer on August 31, 2018, 3:12pm This collection had been hyped up a lot for me, but I failed to connect with it. Some of the lines were gorgeous, but as a whole, I didn't mark any poems down as favorites. It's still worth checking out, but just wasn't win for me!

A collection to savor submitted by Princess Cimorene on August 9, 2020, 1:25pm Take your time with each poem. They're beautiful and moving.
