Thank you to Netgalley, the author, publisher and buzzbooks for the approval!

If you've been following my reading journey the last few years, I've slowly been reintroducing poetry collections back into my landscape.

Mythics popped up onto my radar on Netgalley when I saw the gorgeous cover artwork. I checked out the synopsis and was sold. I wanted to read a 'different' type of collection, one with some positive themes. I'd recently read the collection 'Rooted' by a Canadian author and loved the qu

Appreciate the overall idea and the effort. But this writing wasn't my kind. This wasn't the poetry I was looking for. It was disappointing to see such an expected work not standing up to our expectations.

Mythics is a nice little collection of poetry. Some of the chorus-like repetitions and verse structure made me think a lot of the poems would work really well as song lyrics. While I didn't find anything in the theme or language use phenomenally original, there was some interesting play between the concept of love as an object to be pursued and a person as the object of the affection of the poem's speaker.

I would recommend this volume for fans of poetry.

I really enjoyed this collection as an entirety! Each of the poems were written very beautifully and I felt as if I knew the author in person. The poems were easy to follow and you didn’t get confused at all. I would love to have more poetry from this author any day! I would definitely recommend this collection to anybody I know.

This was a nice collection of poems. At the time I did not know it was a book of poems when I picked it up but it was a good read.

Thanks to NetGalley I received a free ebook in exchange for an honest review.

They say Soul likes repetition and my soul like the repetitive lines of this poetry collection.
The style was something new that I didn't read a lot like it and I loved the creativity.
Music flows in each and every line of these poems like a river to the sea.
I wish "Mythics" was intenser so I could rate it five-stars.
But I surely, look forward to read more from this poet.

Nice Poems

I really wanted to give this book 4 or 5 stars because I feel the author was trying to write actual poetry, and not just the emoting that many people pass off as poetry. But, I feel that the rhyme scheme is often weak, and some of the rhythms are even a stretch. I hope the author continues to write and improve.

Mythics is pure. While reading this, so many emotions flooded my heart. Beautiful flowing words. I was honored to have won a copy of Seth Masek's book, Mythics. In my honest review of this book. I was swept away by the passion and unpretentious loveliness. Verse after verse. Love.
