This book of poetry, by Sarwah Osei-Tutu, can be purchased for $1.99 here.
Sadly, I don’t have the $1.99 to purchase a download (when I say ‘starving college student’, I’m serious about how broke I am), so I read just the 20% free sampling. BASED off that, I highly recommend you check this out if you like poetry at all.
Osei-Tutu is a woman writing poetry on life experiences. It’s not life-changing. It’s not something that will open your mind to a whole new way of looking at the world. BUT her representations of familiar experiences that many woman have faced or will face in their lives, the explications of the hopes and fears and love and joy and pain, are so raw and real and familiar that they can’t help but stir something in the reader.
More than sixty pages of poetry, you’re really getting a bargain. More bang for your buck than a Taylor Swift song on iTunes, of equal or better (certainly more mature) quality.
So go check it out! You can also find her here on WordPress. Her username is Sarwah2012.
(PS, this whole having done my first official book review feels sort of awesome)
