    R.H. Sin has gained many fans over the last couple of years. His Whiskey, Words, and a Shovel sold out and copies were fetching quite a price. Sin made his name with short poems and used language to make words carry their maximum weight. Since the release of Whiskey, Words, and a Shove...

    I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This is my first time reading r. h. sin but I?ve heard the name a lot and a co-worker has highly suggested him in the past and she hasn?t led me wrong yet in poetry suggestions. Planting Gardens in Graves is mod...

    Kinda had some problems with this collection. Some of the poems were fine, some were pretty dang good, and both of those camps were primarily poetry dealing with personal topics. The problematic poetry dealt with the topic of women being mistreated/being in abusive relationships and th...

    I like Sin?s style of minimalist poems that pack a punch and while this book certainly contained ones I felt strongly about, it also became repetitive. This is better read in multiple short sessions but because I read it in one sitting, a lot of the poems started sounding the same. S...

    I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. r.h. Sin does it again... an incredible collection of poetry in this small yet powerful book. I thoroughly enjoy Sin's thought process and the way he looks at relationships and women through. It is a fresh view ...

    I think this may be my least favourite of Sins work, however having said that I still loved it! This just seemed a bit repetitive at times. Still so, so good. ...

    R.H. Sin was one of my favourite new-to-me authors in 2017, having read 2 of his whiskey, words and a shovel works - of which I discovered in Barnes and Noble in New York. Due to this, when I saw this available on NetGalley I was extremely excited to be able to review it and read it be...

    more like 3.5 . . . some of these poems stood out like a slap in the face, in the very best way. others were okay, but felt repetitive. I do like that this wasn't just a collection of 'girls guard your heart' but some of the poems were directed towards the men who use women in ways...

    I received an eARC from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Review originally published on my blog, Turning Pages. I?ve been in the mood for poetry lately. I follow poets on Instagram, and find so many new to me writers that I love. I found R.H. Sin on...

    Somehow... I can't seem to warm up to contemporary poetry. Sin's collection is an extensive one and I loved the title as well as the minimalistic cover (just look at it!), but to me most of the poems sound like recycled run-of-the-mill text posts shared by teens on facebook. The major ...

    ** An ARC is generously provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review ** This is my first R.H. Sin book, so I did not know what to expect going into it. I picked this up because I have heard amazing things about this authors work. This collection of poetry is heavily foc...

    This book made me...uncomfortable. The author made assumptions about women and most of his poems were written to women. But he isn't the right person to be telling women what to do and giving them advice. After he spends most of the book advising women to stay away from bad relationshi...

    edit: The author has denounced the idea that one of his poems is about suicide in my comment section so I've swapped the word 'suicide' with 'death'. He has brought to my attention that he has suffered the traumatic loss of his premature brother and that my interpretation of a poem abo...

    Overall, many readers will probably find this collection quite enjoyable. But while several poems here stood out for their beautiful prose, I did find that others fell a little flat. Despite this inconsistency in quality though, for the most, these poems remain very relatable, especial...

    God this is so melodramatic. It reads like a facebook status I'd post when I was thirteen. Not only that but a lot of the poems in here are beyond repetitive, I don't know how many times I've read about a woman fighting for a man who didn't care about her in this book. However because ...

    For the life of me i will never understand the hype behind this guy . he's so redundant and dry. And his whole "no man is worthy and every woman needs a guy like him" shtick is so disgusting. Who told him he was god's gift to women? After his first few books his themes became over ...

    4.5/5 Stars I read an e-arc of this book via NetGalley This, in my opinion, may be one of the best collections of poetry R.H. Sin has put out to date, perhaps even the best. Sin's simplistic style of modern poetry is straight and to the point rather than being coated in sugary and ...

    Al principio los poemas no me atrapaban del todo, pero conforme mas iba leyendo mas me iban gustando y me identifique con muchos de ellos. Son poemas pequeos pero con gran poder en ellos. A veces no es necesario que sean largos para que transmitan toda una emocin. Una pequea pro...

    entirely for the recently broken hearted. every single page were words I needed to read. it felt so personal to my own thoughts and feelings, and I reread many to full absorb their impact. but there was one poem that made me feel weird. when the author claimed woman needed to go to "...

    I will start this review by saying that I won a copy of this book through a goodreads giveaway. I absolutely adored this book. It is full of poems that really open your mind and make you feel what the author felt while writing them. They re so thought-provoking and are beautifully w...

    I am in a good place in my relationship but I felt empowered that if it ends I am confident I would survive it when I read this book. I have never heard of r.h. Sin before I read this collection of poems? I will buy all his works from now on. And I want the physical ones. They need t...

    I actually don't despise poetry, but it definitely isn't my favorite. Especially contemporary poetry. Still, I had higher hopes for this collection since R.H. Sin is a well known poet and I had previously heard of his work. There were some great poems that I really enjoyed at the begin...

    Actual Rating: 4.5 The poems are short with some increasing in length. The wording is not too flowery or frivolous. They can be short and packed with a lot of thought and meaning. As the first work I have read from r.h. sin, I have to say I was not disappointed. I did feel that s...

    I received this as an ARC on NetGalley. I never really like this author's work, but every time I see a title on there for free I feel compelled to read it to stay justified in my opinions. However, for the first time (by some Superbowl Sunday miracle) this one was actually sligh...

    This is a book I could have benefited from having when I was 16-22! The collection of poetry is front loaded with repetitive ideas about finding peace with oneself rather than inside of an unhealthy relationship. There were many profound one-liners that resonated with me, but as the co...

    Planting Gardens in Graves was a lovely collection of poetry that explored themes of love, hate, and loss. I enjoyed a few pieces thoroughly, most pieces somewhat, and some not so much. I would recommend this to Sin?s fans and readers who enjoy work like Milk and Honey. For readers w...

    This guy's popularity is not surprising for a generation raised on cRap and hip hop music. The only reason I keep reading his books is so I can post another honest review about them. Sorry, but just as r.h. Sin's (wow, what a really cool name!) poetry has not changed, neither has my op...
