10 Breathtaking Books That Prove Poetry is For Everyone

Have you ever wanted to approach poetry but weren’t sure where to start? We totally understand as there are so many to choose from. There’s the classic poetry we read in school like Lord Byron and Keats and Shakespeare’s sonnets, but then there is also modern poetry that addresses feminism, illness and immigration. Then you also have novels-in-verse, those creative hybrids that are so cleverly put together that you often need to read them two or three times just to catch every detail.

These poetry books and novels-in-verse are filled with history, love and even music. They’re accessible to anyone and are the perfect access point for people interested in reading more poetry and thinking in a new way— So select a poetry book today, because you may be surprised by how much you enjoy it.

1. The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo

Xiomara Batista feels unheard and unable to hide in her Harlem neighborhood. Ever since her body grew into curves, she has learned to let her fists and her fierceness do the talking. But Xiomara has plenty she wants to say, and she pours all her frustration and passion onto the pages of a leather notebook, reciting the words to herself like prayers—especially after she catches feelings for a boy in her bio class named Aman, who her family can never know about.
With Mami’s determination to force her daughter to obey the laws of the church, Xiomara understands that her thoughts are best kept to herself. So when she is invited to join her school’s slam poetry club, she doesn’t know how she could ever attend without her mami finding out. But she still can’t stop thinking about performing her poems.

3. The Opposite of Innocent by Sonya Sones

Luke has been away for two endless years, but he’s finally returning today. Lily was only twelve when he left. But now, at fourteen, she feels transformed. She can’t wait to see how Luke will react when he sees the new her. And when her mother tells her that Luke will be staying with them for a while, in the bedroom right next to hers, her heart nearly stops.
Having Luke back is better than Lily could have ever dreamed. His lingering looks set Lily on fire. Is she just imagining them? But then, when they’re alone, he kisses her. Then he kisses her again. Lily’s friends think anyone his age who wants to be with a fourteen-year-old must be really messed up. Maybe even dangerous. But Luke would never do anything to hurt her…would he? Read More.
