Book 13 - Cape Verdean Blues by Shauna Barbosa

13. Cape Verdean Blues by Shauna Barbosa
This year’s Read Harder challenge includes a collection of poetry published since 2014. I’m not really much of a poetry aficionada, so when I happened on this slim volume published in 2018 I figured it would fit the bill. Also, my boss’s daughter recently married a young man from Cape Verde, so I’ve actually heard of the place. Anyway, this had some interesting wordplay and is not your grandma’s poetry collection. I liked it. In addition to the contemporary poetry collection task, this also fulfills "a book published prior to January 1, 2019, that has fewer than 100 reviews on Goodreads," as it currently has 19 reviews and 98 ratings at 4.09 stars. Read off and on between 5 February and 10 March.
