  1. Wade in the Water by Tracy K. Smith (April)

She is the current Poet Laureate and I haven’t read her work before, so I’m excited to see how I like it!


  1. Tyler Johnson Was Here by Jay Coles (March)

For its important themes of police brutality. It’s also recommended for fans of The Hate U Give, which is on my to-read list.


  1. Love, Hate and Other Filters by Samira Ahmed (Jan.)

I’m excited about this one because of its eye-catching title and cultural/coming of age themes.


  1. The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo (March):

It’s a novel written by a poet who’s local to DC. Also, the girl-meets-poetry storyline is really neat too.


  1. Florida by Lauren Groff (June)

I’m excited for this one because of Groff’s acclaim in the fiction world and because I love short story collections!
