‘I Hope You Stay’ by Courtney Peppernell

50904683. sx318 sy475 (Goodreads/Amazon)

Another collection of modern poetry where I’m not a hundred percent sure where the actual poetry is.

I don’t say that this book actually bad is. It isn’t. When I started to read it, I even thought these so called poems could raise the feeling inside me that somebody narrated them to me, I could actually hear the low but strong, alto voice of a woman in my head – which isn’t exactly poetry, but is like the next best thing.

With time I got a bit bored while reading, though. There’s structure, there are thoughts (though to me mostly average wording), but I felt like it lacked real substance and depth.

I must say, though, that I love those little otters, or whatever they are! They’re adorable.

All in all, I should say that this collection is very typical modern poetry. If it’s your thing, this book is for you.

I rated the book 3 stars.

I got this book from Andrews McMeel Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
