Faber Nature Poets


Behold the gorgeous Faber Nature Poets collection that Faber & Faber published last May. The collection consists on 6 poetry books by John Keats, John Clare, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, Edward Thomas and Thomas Hardy.

Eventually I decided to pick up the ones by Keats, Coleridge and Wordsworth since I had to study them this past semester at University and I fancied having them on my shelves individually rather than inside the Norton.

I might get the other three in the near future to complete the collection because Clare was mentioned briefly on my syllabus as well this year but we didn’t read anything by him. I’ve read Hardy before but never his poetry and I’ve heard really good things about it. The only other poet I didn’t know anything about was Edward Thomas but I want to change that.

Do you enjoy reading poetry?

Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas | 2021 Reads

  I enjoyed this because Thomas focuses mostly on the internal conflicts of the main character and how her decisions affect her and everybody around her and still deals with a lot of racial issues that Black (and Brown) young people have to deal with in the US, especially in poor neighbourhoods. Bri is a teen going through a difficult time. She can seem hot-headed, opinionated and, at times, selfish, but she is just trying to be herself, help those she loves and pursue her dreams of becoming a rapper. I was reminded though of why I rarely read YA contemporary fiction these days: one, dramatic teens (don't get me wrong, I get where they are coming from but still makes my eyes roll) and two, intentional lack of communication between adults and kids which drives me up the wall.
