    **More poetry, reviews and book-flavoured goodness here on my blog.** “My heart is damaged in a way I can’t describe with words and any feeling I’ve had is gone like silence.” Planting Gardens’ simplicity and forgiveness is resonant – it is a polite but meaningful warmth that carries neither arrogance nor assumptions in its demeanor. When they want, the words can be a kind hand or a pin of empathy in the heart. I enjoyed and appreciated this book quite a bit more than Sin’s She Felt Like Feeling No **More poetry, reviews and book-flavoured goodness here on my blog.** “My heart is damaged in a way I can’t describe with words and any feeling I’ve had is gone like silence.” Planting Gardens’ simplicity and forgiveness is resonant – it is a polite but meaningful warmth that carries neither arrogance nor assumptions in its demeanor. When they want, the words can be a kind hand or a pin of empathy in the heart. I enjoyed and appreciated this book quite a bit more than Sin’s She Felt Like Feeling Nothing. Though it wasn’t a bad collection by any means, I felt Gardens had a disarming pour of heartache into it that gave it more depth. Inspirational poetry isn’t always my thing, but I love the concept of coercing beauty out of ruins, or if you will, gardens from graves. I’m not keen on the stylizing of the shortest poems. They’re disorienting because some appear to be haiku, but aren’t haiku, and I’ve never favoured the aesthetic of a single sentence poem. It always feels empty rather than artistic to me. Regardless, I did strongly like several of the poems. It’s a good piece. Quotes: --“We were like roses / kept alive for the moment / left to die in the end” --“Sitting on the realization that you were never good and this was never love / like a beautiful peach rotten on the inside” --“Sometimes I’m eager to feel the warmth of love even though I’ve grown more familiar with the cold hands of heartache” --“The fact that no one is perfect doesn’t serve as an excuse to hold on to someone who continues to break your heart” --“And here I stand / surrounded by my own tears / knee deep in my own demons / reaching for the same hand who pushed me over the edge” [I received a copy of this through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.]

    "You’ll make it You always do You’re the girl Who tames The flames You’re the girl Who always survives" Thank you Netgalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing for sending the review copy in exchange for an honest review. My first ever poetry book by R.H. Sin! Was super excited to get to read this book early. I really enjoyed the collection of poems. I ended up liking quite a few of them. Maybe not a favorite poetry book but loved it all the same. Definitely worth the read! || Blog || Instagram ||

    I have never read any book by r.h. Sin before, and when I see this book on NetGalley I thought this is a great chance for me to get to know his work more. He is really a famous poet, and I was excited to read this one. I enjoyed this collection. That are many poetry that I can relate to, that bring fresh air to my mind. It's so relatable that when I read I may have said "yep, been there", "oh my.. yes!" and so on. I have to bookmarked many of his poetry.

    This book of poetry is mostly made up of rephrased cliches disguised as poems. Another thing that irked me was how the author frequently had poems talking about "she" or "her" rather than writing about his own experiences. Write about your own life, Sin, and let women tell their own stories. Don't waste your time reading "Planting Gardens in Graves II".

    Thank you, NetGalley and the publisher for a chance to read this collection of poems! I love discovering new (to me) poets, I have found NetGalley is a great way to do this. I heard amazing things about this author, R.H. Sin, so I thought I would give this one a go. Unfortunately, this collection was a 3 star read for me. I can see why the author's words would resonate with so many. This book explores themes of relationships, love, pain, suffering and heartbreak.

Maybe I have been reading too much of this sort of poetry lately, but most of these poems just seemed to blur together, nothing felt original or unique and sometimes even a bit repetitive. I am not going to judge the authors work based on this collection alone. Like I said, I have heard amazing things about his previous works and I will definitely be trying them out in the future. My favourites: "Content" "Of Anxiety" In Ruins" "November 9th 2016" "Unlearning Toxic Love" "In Mourning" "Arms Open" "Any Year" "All The Years" "Much Stronger"

    Planting Gardens in Graves II isn't what you call 'a bundle of joy'. It's harsch, rough and very, very realistic and true.

    Overall, a beautiful collection of poignant, brief poems centering on the scars of heartbreak and learning to rise above them. While some pages admittedly left me breathless in Sin's ability to capture so much emotion in so few words, the majority of Planting Gardens in Graves II felt too familiar.

    Let me start out by saying that I'm almost always the first person to say "I don't like poetry." I'm an English major in college, but most of the poetry I've had to read just doesn't connect with me. Nothing against the classic, great poets, but I just haven't felt anything groundbreaking from reading poetry. Well, r.h. Sin (and a few other poets) are changing that for me. I've seen r.h. Sin's work at Target, and I've always been intrigued by the short, brief poetry that looks like something I'd s Let me start out by saying that I'm almost always the first person to say "I don't like poetry." I'm an English major in college, but most of the poetry I've had to read just doesn't connect with me. Nothing against the classic, great poets, but I just haven't felt anything groundbreaking from reading poetry. Well, r.h. Sin (and a few other poets) are changing that for me. I've seen r.h. Sin's work at Target, and I've always been intrigued by the short, brief poetry that looks like something I'd see posted on Tumblr or Instagram. I've never read any of his poetry books before, but when I got the chance to read and review Planting Gardens In Graces II, I jumped on the chance. I'm not sure what poetry was in the book before this one, but I can genuinely say that for a newcomer to r.h. Sin's work and to poetry in general, this book definitely provided for me. Let's talk about the poems themselves. Very few poems are longer than a single page, which allows you to just read a single poem at a time, or to binge a few and then reflect. Unlike the poetry that I had to read in school, these poems are of relatable, modern subjects, such as love, heartbreak, and anxiety. There's a palpable sadness running through the entire thing, which I think separates it from some of the more uplifting poetry in this style that you can find on social media sites. Sometimes a sad poem is all you need. There's no complex rhyme to pick apart, just a nice rhythm dictated by the line breaks. I appreciated the varying poem lengths. While many of them are short, consisting of just a few lines, others are longer and definitely feel deeper. Still, I found myself enjoying all of the poems, and reading them slowly, as one would sip a hot, flavorful tea. You don't have to read them in order. I did, to see how r.h. Sin wanted to present these poems, but opening up to a random poem and just seeing what it was to offer works just as well. My only complaint is that this book wasn't divided into themed sections, but then again, maybe this poetry book works better in the way it's currently organized. This book earns 5/5 stars from me. Partially because it's bringing me out of my "I hate poetry phase," and partially because it's the type of book that I just know I want to keep on my bookshelf for a long time. I currently don't have a section for poetry, so I guess that r.h. Sin will get the first spot. Here are some of my favorite lines. Like what you see? Pick up your own copy when it comes out on 7/10/18! - "Chase success/not him/choose yourself/not him" -"I began making a list/of all the benefits/of loving you/and the page remained blank" -"The world is cold/burn bridges to keep warm" For more reviews, quotes, pictures of books, and magical stardust, check out my blog, Starlight-Reads!

    I received a copy of this work through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Having read another work by r.h. Sin, I was ecstatic to be given the opportunity to review a collection of his. Sin seems to open up more in this collection, focusing more on the pain that resulted by a death of a love. His words reliving moments and specific days that stand out and why they still mean so much to him. What I loved about the work was how Sin doesn't write about his pain in a negative way.

His words reliving moments and specific days that stand out and why they still mean so much to him. What I loved about the work was how Sin doesn't write about his pain in a negative way. Even though a lot of the poems center around how the pain makes him feel or how he starts to question love, he is always reflective of the pain, as if he's trying to figure out what it may teach him. Another element that I loved about this work is how Sin portrays women. He does not curse them or drag women through the mud because he has felt heartache because of one. Instead, he praises women, uplifts them, and reflects on how men and women are equal in relationships. There isn't one guilty party if things go wrong. He admits his faults openly. The heartache stems from the pain they cause each other. Even though I appreciate the level of depth this collection has and the beautiful insight into someone dealing with heartache and learning to grow from it, I felt these themes were lost in the middle section of the work. It started off really strong in the beginning and finished strong in the end, but the middle didn't hold the same weight. I felt a disconnect while reading it. However, despite this, I would recommend this collection. I definitely enjoyed it.

    Don't waste your 18 dollars on this garbage. Buy a book actually written by a woman, full of real experiences, and real poetry that will resonate in parts of you that you'd forgotten or never new existed. I recommend Coeur de Lion by Ariana Reines. R.H. Sin, stop writing "poetry" about women's experiences, dude. I feel like every book you publish conjures up your ideal version of a manic pixie dream girl. Any man who writes "She's a rare breed of woman" sounds like a very questionable ally.

"You could chill / a bottle of moscato / with her heart" This is what we're calling poetry nowadays? Vom.

    It’s really sad what I have to rate this book, but this is my honest opinion. I started out with a strong admiration for everything put out by r.h. Sin, and now there’s kind of a bad taste in my mouth after I read works like this. Sometimes authors/poets get burnt out and that is completely understandable, but no one asked for him to work so hard and publish upward to four poetry collections a year.

There is a chance that Sin has many poems on the back burner and that the publishers are pushing him to put out more and more, so I’ll give him that. But it just seems the more he puts out, the more diluted his works get. I will absolutely continue to support him in all his endeavors but I cannot tell people they have to go and read this “latest r.h. Sin collection WOW” because the enthusiasm is going, going, almost gone.

    I've really enjoyed most of this book! I found it a little repetitive at times and sometimes, the lack of rhyming poetry frustrated me--but that's because I love poetry with rhymes. I thought it was insightful (as I believe volumes of poetry should be) and will definitely be picking up the first and other books. The title caught my attention, but the first poem sold me!

    I would have never pictured myself reaching for a book of poetry, however, a friend of mine raves about r.h. Sin’s poetry, so I thought I’d give it a try! I’m so glad I did! His poems contained themes that were raw and relatable. In addition, his unique style of writing was unexpected and refreshing. I would highly recommended to anybody (even those who are not a fan of poetry) to pick up one of Sin’s books.

    I love this man. And I was in great need of his words from his first book in the ‘Planting Gardens in Graves’ volumes. However.... something was just off in this one. I wasn’t as moved as I usually am after finishing his books. It didn’t feel the same. I just don’t know if that’s a reflection of him or myself.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book just as I enjoyed the others from Sin. While there are several repetitive ones from his previous collections, I found the others brilliant. There were quite a few that struck a chord within me and I found myself bookmarking one after another! Sin never fails to amaze me as always Thanks Netgalley for the advance copy of this!

This book did not particularly amazed me, it is full of banalities and cliches for an amateur of poetic and experimental language, this is far behind. I gave it a chance, but sooner rather than later, I gave up reading it till the end.

    I went into this book hoping to be both moved and empowered by this book due to the hype there is around r. h. Sin’s work but unfortunately this book wasn’t my cup of tea. This book is marketed as empowering but personally I think r. h. Sin didn’t quite get this across. It’s very hard to promote a feminist message and be a man. Male feminists are crucial if we want to change anything but I believe r. h. Sin may still need a bit more education.

For the most part I think he only got his tone wrong however multiple times throughout the book he talks about how dating this one woman who lowering his standards and it is never acceptable to talk about someone like that. r. h. Sin has an very beautiful writing style that would blow me away if I was reading a novel of his but in the style of poetry that he writes I felt the single sentence poems fell a bit flat. In conclusion, I wouldn’t pick up another poetry collection by him though it may just be that I unfortunately picked up one of his weaker books. Hopefully r. h. Sin will continue on his journey with feminism and maybe his future works will reflect this but this poetry collection is not one to pick up if you want to feel empowered. If you are looking for a poetry book to empower you I would recommend The Witch Doesn’t Burn In This One by Amanda Lovelace, which is also published by Andrews McMeel Publishing and was published in March of this year. Disappointingly I’m going to give this book 1 star.
