Reviews A Beautiful Composition of Broken

  • Joseph
    r.h. Sin is the bestselling author of the three-book collection Whiskey, Words & a Shovel. The first edition sold out quickly and a second and expanded printing of the first book has since been published making it accessible to most readers. Sin created a sensation in American poetry with the release of Whiskey, Words, & a Shovel. Although some may wonder if his work is poetry, in the strictest sense, it did make reading poetry a cool thing again...

    Review to come.

    I was allowed access to this book as an E-Arc from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. "the moon is full as i empty myself of you" I haven't previously read any of Sin's work, but after reading 'A Beautiful Composition of Broken', I also now don't plan to. Although I can see where many people find interest in modern poetry, I think it's about time I stop trying to find something redeeming in it. Much of this collection felt extremely per...

    I received an ARC of this book on NetGalley. Earlier this year I bought Whiskey, Words, & a Shovel II and was thoroughly disappointed in it. I was hoping this new title would bring redemption for me, but I was mistaken. As with the previous title, the pieces in this work didn't feel like solid, polished, final-draft works. It felt much more like the beginning ideas that I writer might jot down quickly in a notebook by the bedside at midnight to c...

    I received this eARC from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.1.5 *ALRIGHTY THEN. So I went into this book hoping I would like it, maybe even love it. I had heard some not so great things about the author and how he might not be the greatest person. But separate the author from his work?? Yeah didn't happen. I basically hated this...a lot. Probably 90% of the time I was trying to keep myself from rolling my eyes, vomit, or laugh. This was ...

    I've loved Sin's past work and really enjoyed the Whiskey, Words and a Shovel series. This one was...not that. It's an odd combination of life advice, self-help and complaints about heartbreak poorly disguised as poetry. This just didn't work for me. There are several mentions of people that the author feels are simply jealous of his success. Bringing that up once is a turn off, bringing it up several times just seems petty and immature. The litt...

    I wish I could get every word of his tattooed onto my body. Somehow I've related to just about 97% of what R.H Sin has written in each of his books and I have never felt that way before. I though Milk and Honey got to me on a level that I didn't think possible, but without a doubt R.H Sin takes Rupi Kaur's place as of now. I loved this. I wanted to let this run for a while and not read it all in one go because I always find myself missing out on ...

    It isn’t often that a poetry book is written to empower women, to encourage the broken-hearted and to challenge its readers to love themselves more. This is, however, one such book. It urges people to be strong and to not settle for less than they deserve in either a partner or in life. This book highlights the importance of loving yourself and is a positive force in the battle for equality. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.4/...

    I received a free e-copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.I loved this collection of poems so very much. As a disclaimer, I have not read much poetry, but it is something I am interested in reading a lot more of. I have not read anything by this author before. This book is described as "meant to remind the wounded that they are, in fact, beautiful in a way society may never comprehend" and it certainly does that.I book...

    Even if you don’t immediately recognize the name r.h. Sin, there’s a good chance you’re familiar with his work. His poetry has taken Instagram and the poetry world by storm, popularizing the writing form in a way that the world hasn’t seen in quite some time.A Beautiful Composition of Broken is r.h. Sin’s sixth collection and serves as an ode to the beautifully broken. His words touch on women finding strength within themselves, the bro...

    I enjoyed reading R. H. Sin's poems. Not the first poetry book, definitely not the last one. The language and spirit are young and delightful, even talking about pain and sorrow. I feel the poet's soul, loving, caring and writing done details that touch us in daily lives. I enjoyed reading the poem entitled "the Internet", and "in poetry.", and so many more. It tells us, inspires us, in a way like a river, flowing through our deep wound. It hurts...

    Quick review of initial thoughts (longer review to come):This is a collection of poetry written for people who feel broken, who have dealt with or are dealing with toxic relationships, and overall has some good themes and messages to follow. However, while I try not to determine what is and isn't poetry, some of the pieces in this collection did not hold up to some of his other work and felt more like a collection of thoughts he had and wrote wit...

    a terrible terror of love Iit's scaryhow you can doso much for someoneand yet they'd rather focuson what you don't do It's just an okay read but I still enjoyed reading the book. Whiskey Words & a Shovel series was still much better than this though I have only read the Book 1 so far.I received an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
  • Rebekah
    I have really enjoyed RH Sin's other works. However, while reading this one, I felt that many of the poems were repetitive and simply repeating the same ideas and feelings in different words. This was a long book that could have definitely been condensed by eliminating the repetitive works. These poems just were not as original as I am used to from Sin.I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    So in love with these poems. Every time I read him I feel closer to my husband. ❤
  • Abby
    I couldn't really engage with the poems, but I do think almost all of them had such lovely messages, so I'm glad I read it anyway.
  • Krystal
    Like every other piece of writing from this poet, their words resonate with my sense of humanity, down to its core! Such talent at capturing raw emotions! Quite simply, everyone should read this.

    https://thebookloversboudoir.wordpres...I was given an ARC by the publisher via NetGalley and voluntarily reviewed it.I thought A Beautiful Composition of Broken was okay but the collection did not live up to expectations created by his Whiskey Words & a Shovel series. The same themes appear here as his other collections; love, grief, human fragility, being fragile and simply being human and getting it right a lot and wrong a lot of the time as w...
