    I read this book as an ARC. I spent the afternoon into the evening reading Alicia Cook?s new book of poetry entitled I Hope My Voice Doesn?t Skip. It took me a few poems to get the feel for her voice and style of poetry but after I acclimated, I enjoyed her work. I would call her a...

    Review also found here. 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. I've said it once, I'll say it a billion times: Alicia Cook is one of the best voices in mode...

    A solid collection of poetry. I keep finding myself drawn to "Instagram poets," which to me sounds like it'd be a derisive term, but in most cases (this included) I've been really impressed. Cook is a confident poet addressing some hard-hitting topics. My only real critique is that I'd...

    I Hope My Voice Doesn?t Skip is a collection of poetry by Alicia Cook that covers the usual poetry themes of grief, love, loss, but also of addiction, murder, and crime, and she begins the book with a trigger warning for these things and more. She follows that warning with a simple s...

    I decide to pick this novel up on a whim, and I was pleasantly surprised by how beautiful it turned out to be...Typically, I go into any poetry section with a free mind. To pick up a new author, to support them and to try something new. I didn't realize Cook was an established author u...

    "But if I'm not pained by their pain, I have not earned the right to be overjoyed by their joy." I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Just as with Stuff I've Been Feeling Lately, I absolutely loved this collection. The writing is full of emotion...

    I?ve been waiting for a year to read more from Alicia and I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED! There was one slight thing that I wasn?t to crazy about, and that was some of the songs/poems that she co-wrote with other people. Some of them just read weird or I just didn?t care for the songs. I...

    I received an Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of Alicia Cook?s new poetry collection in exchange for an honest review. This book deals with some heavy topics, so I suggest every reader looks at the Trigger Warning (TW) at the beginning of the collection and in the table of contents befor...

    A new instapoet voice for me, I found the collection quite readable and relatable. Many of the poems included are songs, with links to where you can hear them performed. I like that connection and merge into music. There are usual themes of grief, loss, empowerment, but also reflection...

    Such a delight to see a fellow Jersey native get her work out there! Hearing her speak about pieces and read in person was absolutely delightful and made the experience so much more amazing. Such relatable poems. It?s inspiring to read pieces both in the thick of such despair and yet...

    I received an e-ARC from NetGalley to review. Thank you! Out: 5th June 2018 "We are all recovering from something. This is for all of us." After reading "Stuff I've Been Feeling Lately" By Alicia Cook, which instantly turned into my favourite poetry collection, I obviously could...

    This book was raw. I won't sugar coat it for you, there are trigger warnings throughout the whole collection because Alicia Cook writes about very important topics, some of them really hard to read about, especially if they hit too close to home. There's this one poem called Ten Little...

    I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip was my first poetry read by Alicia Cook and it won't be my last. This poetry collection is unique in the way that I've never read anything quite like it and I'm sure it's the only one of it's kind. This collections is split up in two parts - The EP and ...

    Wow, I'm not entirely sure where to start with this book... When I heard that Alicia Cook was coming out with another poetry book, I was quite excited since I thoroughly enjoyed Stuff I've Been Feeling Lately. So out to the bookstore I went to go buy this book and within that same wee...

    Thank you Netgalley and Andrews McMeel publishing for providing me with an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. This was my first book by Alicia Cook and let me just say that I truly enjoyed this poetry book. It's proven difficult for me to find a poetry book that I ac...

    Alicia Cook's creativity never ceases to amaze me. She first shook up poetry in Stuff I've Been Feeling Lately, by coordinating music with each piece. With I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip, she shakes it up once again. Alicia is taking poetry to new levels with every book release, setting...

    I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Alicia Cook is back, with her best work to date. I love seeing writers grow. I love seeing writers give readers an honest glimpse into their lives. This is not one-size-fits-all poetry. I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip is a diary, a t...

    Alicia Cook is a genius. She marches to the beat of her own drum and the world is better for it. I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip bucks the expectations of modern poetry with incomparable grace. Do yourself a favor and buy this book. Read it. Love it. Share it. You'll be glad you did. ...

    Alicia's mixtape was pure brilliance, from the cover, to the concept, to the content, but the record is next level. Cook doesn't just write books. She takes you on a lyrical journey. And this time, she gives you the melodies. With the mixtape she gave you a suggested playlist, and wit...

    I always feel like my reviews and ratings of poetry books are a bit harsher. It's probably because I have to find them either breathtaking or ingenious to give them a higher rating. I think, overall, this collection just wasn't for me. Although I liked and was able to relate to som...

    As I often find with poetry collections, some of these poems spoke deeply to me, and others I couldn't connect with all. I could still see how they could be relate-able to others. I found the writing style to be easy to read, and easy to get lost in. I read it cover to cover, and hardl...

    one of the most powerful modern poetry books I've read in a while. there were three different times I was almost moved to tears (and that usually NEVER happens to me while reading). Alicia is a force to be reckoned with and this book absolutely shows that. I can't wait to see what she ...
