Happy Poem In Your Pocket Day!!

In honor of Poem in Your Pocket Day I'm reposting a couple of poetry collections that were definitely a little on the different side but enjoyable.

The Macabre Masterpiece: Poems of Horror and GoreThe Macabre Masterpiece: Poems of Horror and Gore by Justin Bienvenue

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

I'm not usually a big reader of poetry, but the concept of horror poetry intrigued me. This is a book of poems that ranged from dark and gruesome to evil and creepy with the occasional bit of humor thrown in. The very first poem "Buried Alive" and "Zombies" in chapt 3 were my favorite two poems but I enjoyed nearly all of them in the collection. These are definitely unique and not for the feint of heart as some are a bit gorey. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that enjoys the horror genra. This is a collection that I will definitely re-read!

The New Death and othersThe New Death and others by James Hutchings

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I appreciate the chance to read this book in exchange for my honest review.

This is a collection of short stories and poetry all relating the macabre or to death in general. Many I found very funny and some were a little on the bizarre side, but most I really enjoyed. They aren't gorey or dark instead this collection is more on the fun side and some have an interesting underlying message. A Date With Destiny and also The God of the Poor were two of my favorites, but all of them were enjoyable. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys short story collections especially if you are looking for something humorous and a little off the beaten track.
