ARC Reviews


Sink by Desireé Dallagiacomo is a raw, passionate, and adventurous exploration into the state of our world and our minds.

This wasn’t my first introduction to Desireé Dallagiacomo, I’ve seen her perform her poetry on Button Poetry’s channel on Youtube. While I missed her powerful performances, I still very much enjoyed this tender and emotional addition to her work.

Sink dances between tough topics with a lack of inhibition that is rare and special in the world of Poetry. Between love, grief, addiction, self-image, and smashing the patriarchy, Dallagiacomo alights on these subjects with deep empathy and a heart laid bare.

I read a lot of poetry and would recommend this to most of my poetry-loving friends and followers, as well as those who are looking to try it out. Dallagiacomo’s poems are relatable, brave and uplifting, a little meandering, and an ultimately a very enjoyable collection.

This book was provided to me through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
