I’ve read quite a lot of Sarah Crossan’s work now, she quickly became one of my favourite authors after i read One, however this was my first experience of Brain Conaghan. We Come Apart is another YA poetry/prose collection which makes it very fast read that is interesting and unique, but that’s not the only thing.
This year one of my goals was to start reading new things, such as non-fiction or poetry, things that i definitely was not reading before. About a year ago i embarked on a the journey which is poetry. I’ve always been a fan of John Cooper Clarke, his slightly sadistic and strange poems are great for a laugh or a listening to whilst writing. But i needed to expand my poetry horizons. I’ve found some collections that i absolutely love.
This poetry collection has been on my radar for a while. It completely blew up on BookTube and the internet last year after becoming a New York Times Bestseller, and it’s taken me until now to get a copy and read it (to be fair, its not been sat on my shelf for years, i got it a month ago).
