The first time I ever read this book, I DNF’d it at about halfway through. I bought it just after it was released from a little bookshop in Cornwall, desperate to read it after all of the positive reviews I had seen all over social media.
Poems to Live Your Life By is a book of poetry collated and illustrated by Chris Riddell. People who read my blog regularly know that I obsess over Chris Riddell, which explains my reasons for buying this.
I don’t think I have ever read quite as much as I did through 2018! This was the first year where I kept track of exactly how many books I read, and also kept note on what I thought about them.
It’s definitely worth reading, especially if you are into poetry – or even if you’re not!
My latest bookish obsession is books about books. What more can a bookworm ever want than a book that is written about their favourite thing on the planet – more books – by an author with exactly the same interests as them?!
