  • ❤Emm❤ - The Eternal Novelty
    Precise, small prose carries the weight of massive emotions.A romantic tribute to the brave woman who overcomes hardships caused by a lover, caused by society, caused by her doubts.I feel like this might resonate more strongly with others than it did with me, though I did enjoy these, and the design of the book is stylish as well. I admire its intention - She Felt Like Feeling Nothing succeeds at being uplifting and in parts evocative of beautifu...

    This is another book in the recent genre I'm calling "Platitudes, NOT POETRY." I get that it's tough being a young person, dealing with finding love, etc. But that is not enough! Where is the musicality of the language? Where is the art made with words? Where is the creativity, originality? Simply typing sentence fragments about emotions IS NOT POETRY! This is juvenile. And honestly, I'm really disheartened that I've read so many "poetry" books l...

    She Felt Like Feeling Nothing!!! First things first: I received this book through NetGalley. I read the first few pages and went straight to amazon to put the actual paperback on my wishlist, cause I need this at home. I'm not saying it's the best and most original stuff I ever read, but I loved it and it made me feel a lot of things. I can't wait to re-read this over and over again.

    Le doy la puntuación más alta porque me ha sorprendido gratamente y he disfrutado mucho leyéndolo ♥
  • Robin Bonne
    Maybe it is just me, but I like my poetry to have clever wordplay, and a fresh perspective on culture. These poems fell short of that for me. While the first few poems were enjoyable, they tapered off to a few lines each. Some of the poems reminded me of the text over beach or Hubble telescope photos on Tumblr.Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC of the book.
  • Daniella
    Awful. If you wanna read a r.h. Sin collection that doesn't sound forced, I Hope This Reaches Her In Time is only .99 cents.
  • Alexandra
    until page 116, i had no idea this book was written by a man. i read the whole book as if it was from a female's perspective. and then found out it was by a man. that kind of threw me off. there were poems that as i read, i questioned the sexuality of the author, just because of certain wording, but not the gender. i legit believed wholeheartedly that it was a woman for the majority of the book.hmm.either way, i wasn't a fan of the poetry. i thin...

    She felt like feeling nothingPerhaps that was why she set outTo write poems about being strongand acknowledging that you are deserving of love.Some of her poems were impactful,brimming with raw emotionsand thoughts that reverberatethrough poignant imageries and genuine words.Yet some, sadly I must say,fall short of the high standardsshe set forth for herselffrom the very beginning.Some poems have great premises,but premises do they all remain,a s...

    I'm sad. I'm so used to loving him but the last two collections he's released have been hard to connect with.

    1.5 StarsOriginally posted on: The Quirky Book Nerd*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review*This is r.h. Sin’s newest collection, and though it was slightly better than Planting Gardens in Graves, it still felt incredibly underwhelming. Once again, my biggest complaint is the repetitiveness of the subject matter. I feel like the more collections I read, the less engaged with the text I become. And I ab...
  • Brooke
    *I was kindly given an early copy of this book for review. All opinions are my own* As someone who likes all kinds of poetry I really loved and respected what this did. Her voice and words really speak to you and hit home on so many personal levels that we like to ignore. I definitely want to read more of r.h. Sin’s poetry!
  • Kirsty Hanson
    I'm kind of getting into the groove of reading poetry lately... Maybe it's because there's a lot of it being published that's aimed at teenagers and young adults, maybe it's because I fancy something a little bit different. I don't know. Nevertheless, I was intrigued by this poet that had come by way - R.H Sin. Apparently, he is a very well known poet with many fans saying how his contemporary poetry is magical. I was eager to see if I agreed.The...

    (3.5 stars) my whole life has been about waiting always waiting, always hanging onto the tomorrows of todayor trying to figure out howto survive the aches of yesterday As a note, an e-galley of this novel was sent to me via NetGalley by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not effect my opinions in any way.Oh-my-god, did I really just give a collection of poetry by R.H. Sin a 3.5 star rating? Sigh. I'm disappointed in me too,...

    the moon knows her better/than any man could/she told her secrets/to the night/and kept it all hidden/behind a beautiful smile/during the day. page 33This one started off strong and had some good poems throughout but I felt like it lost its way a bit around the 40% mark and never really picked itself back up. I liked the idea behind it but I wasn't a fan of the execution. I would have liked a bit more structure in this one than what we got. It fe...

    Another lovely collection of poems about relationships, and heartbreak. There were very few poems that personally stuck with me in this collection, however the ones that did are already memorized. A beautiful collection that i would certainly recommend to my poetry loving friends.I received this ARC on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
  • Kirsten Tattersall
    "the wrong lovemakes the poetwant to write"I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This is a collection of small prose that carries across big emotions. I liked it well enough, not quite as much as I was hoping to, but it stayed in one place and didn't try to move on to any other feeling for the entire collection.

    i'm not trying to be mean but like. we already have rupi kaur and she's better at this? and she's already in the middling quality range of the self-love break up three sentences to call a poem genre2.5 stars

    3.5 stars. Underwhelming compared to the poetry book I just read. Will still likely reread multiple times. If that makes any sense 🤷🏻♀ 3.5 stars. Underwhelming compared to the poetry book I just read. Will still likely reread multiple times. If that makes any sense 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Enjoyed some nuggets of the poetry book. Very quick read.
  • Rivalie (Le Petit Photograph)
    this was a beautiful collection of poems that were inspiring and heartbreaking at the same time. i enjoyed this a lot more than i was expecting -however towards the end, the message felt repetitive and the writing style empty which resulted in the 3 stars. regardless i did gain some beautiful quotes to commit to memory and feel refreshed nonetheless.

    Trigger warning: Abusive relationship"save yourself for yourselfright nowonly you deserve you"I was broken hearted and was harassed when I started to read this. I can somehow relate to the emotion that this book wants to convey. I smiled and cried ugly tears while reading the book but I enjoyed it. I felt the pain and want to stop it but I don't know how. Some entry made me overwhelmed by my emotion.She Felt Like Feeling Nothing succeeds at makin...
  • Lucy Noonan
    Trigger warnings for abusive relationships.Nicely constructed poetry but simplistic and very straightforward. The more I read of R.H. Sin's poetry the more condescending it feels. The first poem in particular seems to have little understanding of abusive relationships and borders on victim blaming.
  • Lisa De Weerdt
    This collection falls into the same category as works from Rupi Kaur and Zebian Najwa (and a plethora of others, usually characterized by their works being easy enough to be quoted on Instagram or Tumblr). With the age of the novel, the downfall of poetry, and the rise of both mass media as spoken poetry, the contemporary mode is towards easy-to-swallow poetry. There's not much to most of these works: not in terms of style, not in terms of rhetor...
