Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC of the book.

Awful. If you wanna read a r.h. Sin collection that doesn't sound forced, I Hope This Reaches Her In Time is only .99 cents.

This is another book in the recent genre I'm calling "Platitudes, NOT POETRY." I get that it's tough being a young person, dealing with finding love, etc. But that is not enough! Where is the musicality of the language? Where is the art made with words? Where is the creativity, originality? Simply typing sentence fragments about emotions IS NOT POETRY! This is juvenile.

this was a beautiful collection of poems that were inspiring and heartbreaking at the same time. i enjoyed this a lot more than i was expecting -however towards the end, the message felt repetitive and the writing style empty which resulted in the 3 stars. regardless i did gain some beautiful quotes to commit to memory and feel refreshed nonetheless.

Yet some, sadly I must say,

fall short of the high standards

she set forth for herself

from the very beginning.

Some poems have great premises,

but premises do they all remain,

a sentence, broken up into a few short lines

i see the bruises and the scars

Trigger warnings for abusive relationships.

Nicely constructed poetry but simplistic and very straightforward.

The more I read of R.H. Sin's poetry the more condescending it feels. The first poem in particular seems to have little understanding of abusive relationships and borders on victim blaming.
