Book Review: Becoming: The Life and Musings of a Girl Poet

Becoming: The Life & Musings of a Girl Poet
Becoming: The Life & Musings of a Girl Poet by Nadia Janice Brown
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first time I have read a book of poetry cover to cover, and the first time I have reviewed poetry. In general, it tends to not be “my thing”, but I have to admit I really enjoyed many of the poems included in the book. There is a nice mix of the personal, the general and the spiritual in BECOMING — something for everyone from a poetry perspective. Many of the pieces have a definite female take, but I am one, so that didn’t bother me. 🙂

I also liked that I never felt “out of the loop” when reading these poems. I had no trouble following the language or understanding the symbolism being used, which can sometimes be a problem with the poets I have read previously.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys poetry.
