In Salon.com's Ultimate Book Guide for 2013, Stephen Burt named Angie Estes' Enchantee his poetry book of the year. "For pure pleasure in the curves and surfaces, the glittering facets and darker recesses, of language, it’s hard if not impossible to top Angie Estes."

Sonja James gave Pierre Peuchmaurd's The Nothing Bird a rave review. "Belli has rendered both Peuchmaurd's lyric and prose poems with such generous ease that this volume of his selected poems is indeed one of the best books of the year."
