The Poet X Reviews

  • Emer

    buddy read with Lola

    Mostly a review of random thoughts and feels

    This is a novel in poetry format. Xio, the main character, writes her thoughts in the form of poems that she writes into her journal every day and through these poems we experience some important moments in her teenage life.

    Good points

    The poems really connected me as a reader to the thought processes of Xio. I felt everything she felt (the good, the bad and the ugly) and really got a sense of her as a person.

    A great feminist messa

    Full review originally posted on my blog: Word Wonders



    I wasn’t planning on reviewing The Poet X. I really wasn’t. Because I listened to the audiobook and I made it a rule not to write full reviews of those just because I listen while driving so I never take notes. But this is the one exception. I read this book three months ago but the words and the feelings are still so vivid in my memory that I decided to let it all out of my system and write a review out of it. It’s safe to say I adored i

    As with many other novels-in-verse, I am struggling to call this poetry. To me, this is beautiful, effective prose, cut up and served up in small bits. I am used to traditional poetry (that rhymes at least occasionally) and might need further literary education to get on board with this concept of chopping up prose to present it in a visually distinctive and pleasing way and calling it poetry.

    But I digress...

    I recommend listening to this novel on audio. The author does an outstanding job readin

    You can have a father who, if people asked,

    you had to say lived with you.

    You have to say is around.

    But even as he brushes by you

    on the way to the bathroom,

    he could be as gone as anybody.


    I really liked The Poet X, a portrait of the artist as a first-generation Dominican American girl. A novel in poems, this book takes on a lot in its short length: checked-out father, overly strict mother, closeted gay twin brother, questioning of Catholic upbringing, young love, and most fascinating, the main cha

    "I will never

    write a single

    poem

    ever again.

    I will never

    let anyone

    see my full heart

    and destroy it."


    Wow. Where was this book when I was in high school? I needed this book back then and I am so glad that it exists today.

    "I am unhide-able.

    ...

    Which is why I learned to shrug when my name was replaced by insults.

    I've forced my skin just as thick as I am."


    This was utterly amazing. Told in verse, it doesn’t shy away from the confusion and emotions of being a teenage girl, particularly one raised in a str

    Make sure you grab this book as soon as possible.

    I'm still not over this. I keep re-reading some passages. Slam poetry means a lot to me! *cries for 5 more years*

    A touching story about a young Hispanic woman growing up in Harlem with a very devout mother. But there is so much more to it than that <3

    I couldn't say enough about this book if I tried - I just adore it to pieces. I'm extremely glad this came in my PageHabit YA box for March, the comments from the author make the experience exponentially better (as if it wasn't fantastic already
