*Review* Rescued Poems by Saket Suryesh

Genre: Poetry
Published: October 20, 2014
Pages: 59


Poems written on spur of moment and left to live in social media posts, loose pages, and book covers, collected and published here.


I received a copy of this book through the Goodreads First Reads giveaway program in the hopes that I would leave an honest review.

This collection of poems felt very disjointed, which makes sense because it's a collection of random poetry that apparently didn't fit into other collections (according to the introduction). I wish I could say that at least some of them touched my soul, but I can't. There was very little resonance for me, and a month post reading them, I can only vaguely even remember what they were about. (I feel like that is a bit of a personal failing though.) 

Overall I give Rescued Poems 3 out of 5 stars because it wasn't bad, but it didn't do much for me. - Katie
