I love April, because it’s such an interesting convergence of weather. It finally starts to get warm and sunny, but the unpredictable rain showers can change your plans at any minute. And as a reader rain means D.E.A.R (Drop Everything and Read) time and a boost to my April Reading Hopefuls!
In honor of National Poetry Month and Earth Day I am focusing my TBR around Environmentalism and Poetry. I’ve been noticing more books getting published lately about young environmental activists and other topics related to climate change. I also have an interest in using natural and more sustainable methods in my daily life. So some of my book choices will address one or the other topic. If you are looking for a book that includes both poetry and climate change, check out my review of Review: No World Too Big.
