    Moving on, if you know me or follow any of my book blogging habits, you know that I'm a big fan of anything written in verse. Of course, I'm a fan of any kind of general reading material, but there's something about verse writing that hits my emotions harder. I had the pleasure of stumbling across one of R.H. Sin's books at my library, and gobbled it up in one sitting.

    Whiskey Words and a Shovel III carries the same raw emotion as the previous installment, and is just as easy to binge read as the first. I was also eager to find that this book was a hefty 336 pages long, almost twice as long as the last book! Woohoo! The feelings I have for the verse are hard to put into words, really. It's very raw and real and personal, and it almost reminds me of talking to an old friend about life and love and everything that goes with it. This kind of self-empowering yet kinda sad poetry just resonates with me.

    This is one of those books that has the ability to transport you with a poem, whether that's a good or a bad thing is hard to say. It can be read as a standalone, and the verse is stunning enough to stick with you (Seriously, I'm thinking about framing "therapy by the books"). Definitely give this book a shot if you're looking for a new poetry read.

    NOTE: I received this copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Here's my confession: I did and could not finish it. It holds too many pages and the content is not promising. I have read like 1/5 or 1/4 books and it would be a torture to finish this. So, I am sorry.

    The poems are mediocre and average, the typical you read on Amanda Lovelace's books and Lang Leav's, or Trista Mateer's. Say I am not a fan of free verse of poems, but this one is just hopeless. I have read the second book and I didn't think this one make any progresses? Maybe I will take a rest f

    Whiskey Words & a Shovel III by r.h. Sin is the final collection in series. Sin took the world by surprise. Little in the way of biography and a few words on each page. His talent is deconstructing the complexities of life and especially relationships into a few words. Much like pulling a meaningful quote out of a song, that little bit of the whole that ties everything together. Sin's poems have gotten longer and although the pages are small the words for more than a single page. The work is

    Whiskey Words & a Shovel III by r.h. Sin is the final collection in series. Sin took the world by surprise. Little in the way of biography and a few words on each page. His talent is deconstructing the complexities of life and especially relationships into a few words. Much like pulling a meaningful quote out of a song, that little bit of the whole that ties everything together. Sin's poems have gotten longer and although the pages are small the words for more than a single page. The work is as well done as in the first two collections and is no way a collection of what was left over.

    Sins first

    is still in demand. I bought the first collection, after reviewing the second, for $17. Now the book is going for $150. I have received emails from people asking if I am willing to sell my copy for a reasonable price; I passed it on already. The writing is a hit for those in their twenties where the writing is most relevant. The themes are the same though out the collections -- Love, relationships, treating a woman right, feminism, and patience. The poet also spends much time on paying tribute to a woman, Samantha. His writing to her is much like Petrarch's writing of Laura. Longer than the earlier collections with lengthier poems as well as his signature short poems, Sin closes the trilogy on a high note.

    I adore this book so much. It was probably one of the most relatable things I've ever read, every poem just felt so real to me.

    While I enjoyed reading this book, I didn't feel much emotion ebbing from the pages. In poetry, I'm searching for words that either make me think or make me feel. The great stuff will do a little of both.

    This had some pieces that caused me to think. Others that caused me to feel. None that really did both to the extent I hoped for.

    That does NOT mean this is a bad collection. It's just not a favorite of mine. For me, it fell a little short, but it was still a great read. There were some pieces (o

    That does NOT mean this is a bad collection. It's just not a favorite of mine. For me, it fell a little short, but it was still a great read. There were some pieces (one or two liners) that did absolutely nothing for me. Those pieces tend to resonate as something anyone could/would say. Not poetry (in my opinion). But fortunately, there weren't too many of those.

    This is a beautiful collection with some shout out's to the woman he loves. His words caused me to think over my past relationships and analyze them more closely. And you know what, r.h. Sin was right. It wasn't my fault they couldn't love me. Yes, I should have left sooner. No, I will not go back to a one-sided kind of love. Yes, a strong and independent woman like myself does need a strong and independent man and should never settle for less.

    Like I stated above, these pieces mostly had my mind thinking back and analyzing. That's some good poetry right there. However, the fact that I wasn't sucked in emotionally, was a little disappointing. There were some pieces that pulled me in marginally, but nothing touched me in my depths.

    That's where poetry is meant to go. Deep and dark with honesty.

    While this is a good collection, it's not great. It's not my favorite. But it's still one that I feel should be a part of any poetry collection.

    I know that being a poet in the modern world is never easy. Everyone judges you. Your husband, your wife, your lover, your friends, your neighbours. It’s not easy to pour your heart out on paper, on the internet or in a book.

    I know that being a poet in the modern world is never easy. Everyone judges you. Your husband, your wife, your lover, your friends, your neighbours. It’s not easy to pour your heart out on paper, on the internet or in a book. Poetry books are sacred to me, I get to carry them around, fold their pages and read them over and over again. r.h Sin is a modern pop poet. He is making poetry popular again, with his Instagram account and his simple, brilliant way of writing from his heart and sleeve. There is nothing wrong with that. Most may criticize this, but I can easily read Dorothea Lasky in one sitting and r.h. Sin. Poetry in another and enjoy both books for different reasons. Reading great poetry is an experience, an individual experience that varies from person to person according to their own life and knowledge. I can connect to poetry and its various forms and techniques. His gift and brilliance lies in his simple expressive way of telling us a story from his own personal experience.If you are a woman, who has been taken advantage of, ignored, rejected, abused, not loved the way you deserve… it is easy to see yourself on these pages. Most women have fallen prey to men that can’t love them back and vice versa. Sin sees the strength in women and expresses it with beauty. The fact that the poet is a male, makes the words he writes about women even more poignant. His point of view gives us another perception as well, of a man, who wasn’t loved the way he deserved; how women too, can take advantage of love and not give back any intimacy or love in return. That is what I adore about this book…the fact that we get both perspectives of not receiving the love we need.

    I also adore the size of this book, and its compact nature. The paper feels almost like newsprint and the typeface is typewriter font, giving you the feel that it is typed. It has an old feel to it in a modern way.

    In the poem, “strange love” Sin writes, “ I hope you find someone who falls in love with the strange that lives within you.”

    I read this many times, grasping that we are all in some way strange and we all hope to meet a person that can love that part of us. In essence, this is a fear for most people and we try to hide the weirdness in us, up until we can’t anymore. In that simple phrase, so many emotions run through your mind of being accepted for who you are and realizingthat most people just didn’t accept that part of you that you so desperately want them to.

    I have read this book twice so far and I know for a fact that I will read it again. This is what a great poetry book should do, make you want to go back for more. I suppose it could be during this particular time in my life, I am feeling more vulnerable and this perhaps made me connect to the words and emotions in this book; however, I felt as awoman, he hit the nail on the head with the misunderstanding of love and lust.

    I think that the way he writes is pure and from the heart, and even if you have heard some of these quotes or expressions before, reading them again only hammers home the fact that life is short and don’t stay in a relationship that harms you, but try to move on, no matter how hard, and find a true love. It may be a bit idealistic, but that is what poets do. my full review

    I would rather go to any number of "Instagram Poets" profiles and find their undiluted words in all of their glorious entirety rather than spend any more money on RH Sin's unoriginal thoughts.

    The man just doesn't even have an original thought of his own, he regurgitates everything he reads from truly talented poets, and spins it with less than mediocre results.
