Quarter Life Poetry: Poems for the Young, Broke and Hangry by Samantha Jayne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Tired of living with your roommate? Hard up for pizza and wine money? Working sweatpants like it's your job (because you don't yet have a job)? No problem. Pour your cheap red, get comfy and dig in toQuarter Life Poetry: Poems for the Young, Broke and Hangry by Samantha Jayne because she has you covered. The poetry in this book is humorous and tries to really capture the essence of the quarter-life misery that most of us endure. Okay, let's be honest—I'm a few years past the quarter-life mark and I'm still dealing with these things.
Each short poem is accompanied by a cute drawing that depicts what we all know is true—those sweatpants are awesome, the job will always go to the boss's niece and you will definitely be scrounging for the rent money. This isn't by any means deep poetry, but there is truth to it, which it probably why it will appeal to so many readers. Also, it's a very quick read. You don't need to make a huge time commitment to it.
