    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...

    1.5 stars Originally posted on: The Quirky Book Nerd *I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review* My r.h. Sin saga continues. After reading A Beautiful Composition of Broken, things went even more downhill when it came to this particular...

    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 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. ...

    Great as usual! Sin is a poet that is easy to like! Not the convoluted crap that so many aloof poets are trying to churn out! Not his very best volume but still damn good! ...

    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...

    Insightful! Another emotive collection of poetry! As before, I find that these can as easily describe the heartbreak of love as the shattered belief that white folx see the humanity in people of colour. ...

    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...

    I disliked the use of ?you? in most of the poems as it felt like the author was talking down to me, and conceptually to women. That being said, Sin?s poetry stuck out to me in the cases in which ?you? was not being attacked in some way, or when the ?you? remained gender...

    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 ...

    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 "...

    lions. they threw her into the lion?s den and instead of feeling fearful she tamed the beasts ? i am disappointed really, the only thing i liked about this was that there was less misplaced line breaks and maybe even a poetic feel to it but other than...

    Some pieces were impactful, most I found weren't. Repetitive at times, unfortunately. Maybe I would change my mind if I were to come back to this book later. ...

    I debated buying this book, and I?m happy I ended up adding it to my $100+ Indigo purchase (I may have a problem). Planting Gardens in Graves is a brutally honest look at relationships and breakups that is at times hilarious and at times heart-wrenching. It?s the kind of poetry tha...

    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...

    So glad i made the decision to read this book. I loved how this book took themes and ideas from many of my favorite poetry books, and made it into one. This book has everything you?d ever need. From feminism, heartbreak, all the way to mourning. Beautiful poetry that combines both sh...

    I did find this collection incredibly repetitive and lost interest very early on. It's also not very deep and artificial. The words barely scratched the surface. ...

    As my second book from Sin, I have to say that I was not disappointed. I really enjoyed how he got in depth with so few words. I also like that he explored more with longer poems, those were also good. Overall it?s a well rounded book about life which I found myself relating to. ...

    I was hoping the poems of this author would be more of a man's perspective, turns out half of it went from lady's point of view. It still a good read though. Looking forward to more of his art. ...
