Currently Reading – I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings

IMG_6074

I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, by Maya Angelou, is a gorgeous book. I’m only halfway through it at the moment but I thought I’d write a short post in the week and this one is about what I am currently reading.
It’s the story of her early childhood and the hardships she faced (which were numerous) and she is an incredible (phenomenal) woman – yes I am a fan of her poetry.
She’s currently my favourite poet at the moment as her writing style is similar to how I personally write and I love to read poems that read as free verse but do have a slight rhyme and rhythm that is almost invisible. Her biography is written as elegantly as her poetry and I simply cannot wait to read on in this novel.
