Review: B Is For Bad Poetry by Pamela August Russell

B Is For Bad Poetry is a collection of…. well, really bad poetry.  Quick read. Rating: 2.5/5.

*This is book #9/40 for my 2013 book challenge. You can take a look at my different reading challenges here.

B Is For Bad Poetry was given to me as a gift a few years ago, but I didn’t get around to reading it until tonight. I found it while cleaning out my room at my parent’s house, and reading it was certainly an experience. It took me about 20 minutes, though it probably would have taken me a bit less time if it weren’t for me typing them out to my best friend to laugh at. It was such a quick read, I almost feel like I’m cheating by counting this towards my Goodreads book challenge.

With that said, some of the poems in here weren’t terrible. Some were funny, even. One, in fact, even inspired me to write a…… story. noit’snotfanfictionihavenoideawhatyou’retalkingabout. So, for it being a quick read and made to be bad…. it’s going to get a 2.5 rating. Don’t buy this. Go to Barnes & Noble, get a coffee from Starbucks and hang out at the cafe and read it and then put it right back on the shelf. It’s not worth the money, unless you want to keep it around as a novelty.
