    I wish I could give this zero stars. Vapid, repetitive, boring ?poetry.? The author needs a basic lesson in figurative language. And in avoiding manic pixie dream girl tropes. ...

    Algedonic is my first read from r. h. Sin and I wanted to try this, since I've heard quite a lot about Sin's books. Sadly I was let down, although Algedonic isn't necessarily that bad. It's just cliched (I hate cliches). The book is divided into two parts, the black and white ones and ...

    I remember being so mesmerized by the words in his other books... But this one wasn?t cutting it. There were only a few things in here that I really liked (maybe 3 things). It was disappointing. Perhaps I wasn?t at the right spot in my life when I read these (like I was with ...

    I received a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. 3.5 Stars I usually enjoy R.H. Sin's collections, but this one fell flat for me. I thought there were too many poems that consisted of just a line or two, and I really would have liked if they were a b...

    Brilliant. You?ll get nothing less than perfection from r.h. Sin, every time. Read this in less than an hour and already want to read it again. ...

    You are the flower That blooms by itself For itself For yourself Keep growing That was one of the poems that reached out to me the most. I just love how r.h. Sin?s poems connect with me on a personal level and it just feels like these were written for me specifically. It?...

    ** I got an ARC which is generously provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review ** Well, I loved this poetry so much. I only read it in two sittings, one I did it on campus, then back at my dorm the other. This book told me so much about heartbroken, how the writer mended...

    La nueva ola de poetas son solo eso: frases tipo Tumblr para perras bsicas, que dicen, es poesa. Y me desalienta que sea as. En el pasado imaginaba que la poesa era un lenguaje bastante complejo que no cualquiera poda escribir y no cualquiera poda entender. Y no s quin ...

    R.H. Sin speaks to me in a way no other poet really can! He seems to observe and know about my life and struggles to make his poetry connect with me. He speaks of pain and scars, but also holds a flashlight pointing to the other side, to peace and happiness with oneself, and letting go...

    Mi piaciuta solo una poesia e non sto scherzando. Io non capisco, perch spacciano la depressione e la solitudine per amore? Se vuoi parlare della persona che ami non devi parlare mica dei tuoi problemi. Poi dio mio, l?originalit proprio. Lei era forte, bella, gentile blablabla...

    3.5 stars I truly love R.H. Sin's work. I think its beautiful and important- it always feels so personal as well. I was a bit disappointed in this collection though, in comparison to his other works that is. This one deals more with heartbreak and relationships not working o...

    I enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed reading the author's other works however, this one just felt the same as his first trilogy of Whiskey, Words, and a Shovel I. There was nothing new to offer, it was the same recycled thoughts, ideas and feelings. I just didn't find any new su...

    It's very common for a fan to expect something new from his/her favorite author, and surely, Sin's newest book "Algedonic" did not disappoint. Or did it? Algedonic, as defined by MW Medical Dictionary means, "aesthetic look on pain and pleasure" but r.h. Sin's book did not gave me ...

    4.2/5 Stars! My first R. H. Sin book and I can genuinely say most of it resonated with me. I always find appeal in these types of "modern poetry". It is actually more prose than poetry tbh. It's like having a conversation with a person WHO JUST GETS IT. Alot of the pieces, surprisi...

    I think I?m going to take a break with poetry for a while. I?m not sure if maybe I?m too cynical of a person to really feel anything by the words and themes expressed, but they all just come across as repetitive and cliche. This book was no different to me. ...

    After I finished it initially, I gave it a rest and read over the entire thing again. It was an experience of reflecting on my own emotions and thoughts. While I did prefer the dark side 'Pain | Chaos' more, I didn't mind the other half . As with most contemporary poetry books, the...

    This book is set to release next month, December 12, 2017, and I was given the opportunity to review this title prior. As I was reading through this book, it made me wish that the poems were a lot longer. The majority of the poems were about 2-5 lines and that was a disappointing. I...

    I received this as an ARC on NetGalley in exchange for a review. I don't know why I keep doing this to myself... Every time a new r.h. Sin book drops, I always read it, expecting it to be better. I mean, you'd think an author would grow with each new work, right? But it's really...

    r.h. Sin gives the reader a series of poems, short and long, arranged at the heart of each page in this book. These are verses that work powerfully, sometimes simply and sometimes in a more complicated way. Each one is an example of how even two lines can convey an emotion or idea, whi...

    I have so much to say about this, so bear with me. I don't know how this person keeps churning out these "poetry" books one after the other, like some kind of bad poetry factory. It just doesn't work that way! Or at least, it shouldn't. There is a reason why writing good poetry takes t...
