ARC given by NetGalley for Honest Review

"Miscreations" was a rich and wordy whirlwind of a book. Many times throughout my reading I opted to real aloud to myself to help the sounds create better imagery for myself and I think it was my favorite part. This book came to ask me to participate, to let each vowel and consonant tell its story on my tongue and I am IMPRESSED. While a small handful of poems left something to be desired, for example, "A Little Death" the majority of others boasted

This book of free verse or odd verse poetry was amazingly rich.
One might read it and find themselves lost as they can sometimes sound like the poetry of an adhd child losing track of what they were saying but still rambling.
Yet then one finds that all the words connect and make sense but see the world at odd angles.
You’ll find depth and wisdom and frivolity and nuggets.

My favorite is the line: Life is what happens in the time between inconveniences.

Check this out for a fun read!

Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

I loved how lyrical these poems were. There were some that carried me through to the end and gave me that wonderful emotional whiplash that I enjoy so much from poetry, those final lines with a punch. Others had a slow way of holding my hand and guiding me through the scene, equally as wonderful. This was the kind of poetry collection I wanted to hear aloud, that's how lyrical and beautiful it was.

Thank you for the opportunity to read and review this book of poetry. It is touted as "...Miscreations focuses instead on how people and situations can be created from unstable, often opposing, elements and examines how these people and situations manage to survive.." I absolutely loved that idea and knew I had to read this book. I also really like the title! This is definitely not your normal book of poetry. Definitely recommend.
