    1. I really loved this collection. It was a pleasure to be able to hear Hinemoana read some of her work at the Christchurch Writers Festival this year and her book does not disappoint. They are beautifully written and a pleasure to read. My favourites would have to be Nanna and Last Born. Stunning!

    2. Book #9 of 2018Poetry Collection #6 of 2018I got this collection on sale for $5 from the SLQ bookshop. I wasn't overly impressed with this collection, though did find some that I didn't mind. Poems/lines I didn't mind:seventyconcordesugar (particularly the formatting of this poem)june'The way when the jugbegins to boilyou start to move fasterbut not necessarilyin the direction of the jug.'
