Read full description of the books:This is my first collection by Angie Martin, and I thought it came by at a bad time because I've been reading such less-than-satisfying poetry lately that this one in conjunction with them met me with the same reaction. Not quite: it's still just not my favorite as far as contemporary poetry is concerned.
My main issues from this collection apart from some of the very same problems I had with The Princess Saves Herself in this One and Empty Hotel Rooms Meant for Us was the non-musicality of it. Many of the poems seemed to have some sort of gimmick, like a word or phrase, sometimes even the title, that would be repeated en masse to drive the theme of the poem home. The reason I say "non-musicality" though is because I personally felt like the repetition of these phrases were meant to add a rhythm, like if they were read aloud. However, I just felt like these lines were filler to give the illusion of a more emphatic, important poem when it was evidently kind of weak.
I was very excited to read this collection, even after the first poem. The concept of writing poetry about what we all think about when we can't sleep at 3am is not only empathetic but that experience should seem unique to each person. I feel like at least some of these meditations should have given me this type of reaction: "I've never thought of that in that way before." I mean, when I talk to my friends about some of the things I think about 3am, there's usually laughter or some confused faces.
Because of this logic, I thought we were going to get more stream-of-consciousness style, meditative poems—maybe even branching into some surrealism—because 3am is a wild time of night where a mind runs mad. These thoughts sounded like thoughts I had in early high school in the middle of the day when I was daydreaming in science class, and then wrote those daydreams down. I didn't find there to be as much gusto in these poems as I was hoping; they fell under more not-extremely-well-crafted-descriptions-of-nature-while-talking-about-love poems.
I really don't like giving such low-star reviews because I know writers work hard on their art. But I cannot let myself not speak my mind because I am afraid of critiquing a fellow writer.

I live in Overland Park, Kansas with my husband, two cats, and beloved dog. I grew up in Wichita, Kansas and have lived all over the United States. My two sons are off paving their own way in the world.
I have three suspense/thriller novels (False Security, Conduit, and The Boys Club) as well as a poetry collection (the three o'clock in the morning sessions). I am working hard on many projects, including the follow up to Conduit and the sequel to False Security.
As a reader first, writer second, I love to discover new authors. My entire life has revolved around imaginary worlds contained within the covers of a book. My aunt introduced me to Stephen King and a little book called Christine in eighth grade, and my life was never the same. As a geek-extraordinaire, I love comics and graphic novels, and also review those, both on my own and as a guest contributor with Fanboy Comics.
I have studied criminal justice and behavior since high school, which I incorporate into my writing. If writing is my blood, then music is the air in my lungs. I have played piano since I was five and I love writing music. I am also hard-core gamer. My go-to video games series are Resident Evil, Uncharted, The Walking Dead (Telltale Games), Dead Space, and Batman Arkham.
