Just a blog about books ... the good, the bad and the very ugly.


I'm not ashamed to say that I totally judge a book by it's cover.

Ladders in July

Ladders in July - William Allegrezza I won this book through the First Reads contest.

I finally received my copy of Ladders in July almost 4 months after I had initially won.

First off, I love poems. Reading Ladders in July, I was mostly confused in the beginning. I reread the first 20 or so poems 3-4 times and I still had no idea what in the world was going on. But then I arrived at the poem Tel Aviv. Tel Aviv is an amazing poem. As is Terminal, Last Stage, Poets & Peace, An Ecological Note and A Made Thing. My favorite was A Made Thing and I would have bought this book just for that poem. It is definately something I will read again because now I'm determined to analyze those first poems.
