#TPQ5: COURTNEY LeBLANC

Megan Falley

Often when reading Megan’s poetry I find myself thinking, “Yes, this is exactly it. This is how it feels.” Her poems hit hard, both to the heart and the head and the gut.

The Going and the Goodbye – Shuly Cawood

This memoir reads like poetry – lyrical and gorgeous sentences fall together into perfect paragraphs.

Laini Taylor

Taylor’s fantasy books transport the reader into a world that is so vivid and realistic, you’ll be angry when the books end. At least I was.

Shaindel Beers

Her poetry is accessible and real, and I often see myself in her poems.

Night Sky With Exit Wounds – Ocean Vuong

This collection is gorgeous and surprising. I cannot wait until his next collection is released.
