    I highlighted so many quotes and entire poems that spoke to me in this book. I?m already looking forward to rereading this one. Full review to come closer to the publication date. ...

    I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip by Alicia Cook is the Poets second complete collection of poetry. Cook earned her Bachelor's Degree in English Literature in 2008 and her MBA in 2012. She is employed as the Associate Director of Communications at Saint Peter's University. Cook is a fre...

    one of the most powerful modern poetry books I've read in a while. there were three different times I was almost moved to tears (and that usually NEVER happens to me while reading). Alicia is a force to be reckoned with and this book absolutely shows that. I can't wait to see what she ...

    Alicia's mixtape was pure brilliance, from the cover, to the concept, to the content, but the record is next level. Cook doesn't just write books. She takes you on a lyrical journey. And this time, she gives you the melodies. With the mixtape she gave you a suggested playlist, and wit...

    Alicia Cook is a genius. She marches to the beat of her own drum and the world is better for it. I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip bucks the expectations of modern poetry with incomparable grace. Do yourself a favor and buy this book. Read it. Love it. Share it. You'll be glad you did. ...

    Alicia Cook's creativity never ceases to amaze me. She first shook up poetry in Stuff I've Been Feeling Lately, by coordinating music with each piece. With I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip, she shakes it up once again. Alicia is taking poetry to new levels with every book release, setting...

    I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Alicia Cook is back, with her best work to date. I love seeing writers grow. I love seeing writers give readers an honest glimpse into their lives. This is not one-size-fits-all poetry. I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip is a diary, a t...

    I?ve been waiting for a year to read more from Alicia and I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED! There was one slight thing that I wasn?t to crazy about, and that was some of the songs/poems that she co-wrote with other people. Some of them just read weird or I just didn?t care for the songs. I...

    Thank you Netgalley and Andrews McMeel publishing for providing me with an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. This was my first book by Alicia Cook and let me just say that I truly enjoyed this poetry book. It's proven difficult for me to find a poetry book that I ac...

    Loved how the first book was a cassette and now it?s a record. Excited to see these new poems! ...

    Thank you to Alicia Cook for selecting me to be one of your readers who got an early copy of your latest poetry book. All opinions are my own. I rate this a 5 out of 5 stars. I don't know that I've reviewed poetry on my blog before, but If you follow me on IG you know that I love...

    I read this book as an ARC. I spent the afternoon into the evening reading Alicia Cook?s new book of poetry entitled I Hope My Voice Doesn?t Skip. It took me a few poems to get the feel for her voice and style of poetry but after I acclimated, I enjoyed her work. I would call her a...

    I always feel like my reviews and ratings of poetry books are a bit harsher. It's probably because I have to find them either breathtaking or ingenious to give them a higher rating. I think, overall, this collection just wasn't for me. Although I liked and was able to relate to som...

    A solid collection of poetry. I keep finding myself drawn to "Instagram poets," which to me sounds like it'd be a derisive term, but in most cases (this included) I've been really impressed. Cook is a confident poet addressing some hard-hitting topics. My only real critique is that I'd...

    I received an Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of Alicia Cook?s new poetry collection in exchange for an honest review. This book deals with some heavy topics, so I suggest every reader looks at the Trigger Warning (TW) at the beginning of the collection and in the table of contents befor...

    Such a delight to see a fellow Jersey native get her work out there! Hearing her speak about pieces and read in person was absolutely delightful and made the experience so much more amazing. Such relatable poems. It?s inspiring to read pieces both in the thick of such despair and yet...

    A new instapoet voice for me, I found the collection quite readable and relatable. Many of the poems included are songs, with links to where you can hear them performed. I like that connection and merge into music. There are usual themes of grief, loss, empowerment, but also reflection...

    As I often find with poetry collections, some of these poems spoke deeply to me, and others I couldn't connect with all. I could still see how they could be relate-able to others. I found the writing style to be easy to read, and easy to get lost in. I read it cover to cover, and hardl...

    I received an e-ARC from NetGalley to review. Thank you! Out: 5th June 2018 "We are all recovering from something. This is for all of us." After reading "Stuff I've Been Feeling Lately" By Alicia Cook, which instantly turned into my favourite poetry collection, I obviously could...

    I Hope My Voice Doesn?t Skip is a collection of poetry by Alicia Cook that covers the usual poetry themes of grief, love, loss, but also of addiction, murder, and crime, and she begins the book with a trigger warning for these things and more. She follows that warning with a simple s...

    Thanks to Netgalley for providing me with the ARC of I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip in exchange for an honest review! Someone please just give Alicia Cook all the awards. I read her mixtape, Stuff I've Been Feeling Lately last year and absolutely fell in love with Cook's poetry. When ...

    I received this as an ARC on NetGalley. I liked that not all of the themes in these poems were predictable. Some of them felt relatable while others felt super specific and autobiographical. I appreciated the way the author played with form, structure, rhyme, and both verse and pro...

    I  received a free digital copy of this book from Netgalley for an honest review. The moment this book hits the shelves, I am buying it. Good lord! The emotion and depth in some of these is incredible. "This isn't about the number six" had me bawling my eyes out cause I've been the...

    "Who am I to tell him not all pretty things are worthy of saving, just as not all things worth saving are pretty." Loved this one! Especially the poems in Part I because I felt so understood. <3 ...

    I read ?Stuff I?ve Been Feeling Lately? about a year ago and Alicia Cook instantly became one of my favorite poets. Alicia was kind enough to gift me an ARC of ?I Hope My Voice Doesn?t Skip? before its release and it exceeded all my expectations. This poetry collection tack...

    Cook's second book is more than amazing. It's super personal, with such enjoyable poetry. I like her poetry style, simple, not overdone. Her poetry does cover so 'touchy' topics in today's world. But I find her to be brave and her writing moving to be stepping out of a bubble, she's le...

    I read this book as an ARC. I spent the afternoon into the evening reading Alicia Cook?s new book of poetry entitled I Hope My Voice Doesn?t Skip. It took me a few poems to get the feel for her voice and style of poetry but after I acclimated, I enjoyed her work. I would call her a...

    I always feel like my reviews and ratings of poetry books are a bit harsher. It's probably because I have to find them either breathtaking or ingenious to give them a higher rating. I think, overall, this collection just wasn't for me. Although I liked and was able to relate to som...

    A solid collection of poetry. I keep finding myself drawn to "Instagram poets," which to me sounds like it'd be a derisive term, but in most cases (this included) I've been really impressed. Cook is a confident poet addressing some hard-hitting topics. My only real critique is that I'd...

    I received an Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of Alicia Cook?s new poetry collection in exchange for an honest review. This book deals with some heavy topics, so I suggest every reader looks at the Trigger Warning (TW) at the beginning of the collection and in the table of contents befor...

    A new instapoet voice for me, I found the collection quite readable and relatable. Many of the poems included are songs, with links to where you can hear them performed. I like that connection and merge into music. There are usual themes of grief, loss, empowerment, but also reflection...

    As I often find with poetry collections, some of these poems spoke deeply to me, and others I couldn't connect with all. I could still see how they could be relate-able to others. I found the writing style to be easy to read, and easy to get lost in. I read it cover to cover, and hardl...

    "But if I'm not pained by their pain, I have not earned the right to be overjoyed by their joy." I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Just as with Stuff I've Been Feeling Lately, I absolutely loved this collection. The writing is full of emotion...

    I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip by Alicia Cook is the Poets second complete collection of poetry. Cook earned her Bachelor's Degree in English Literature in 2008 and her MBA in 2012. She is employed as the Associate Director of Communications at Saint Peter's University. Cook is a fre...

    one of the most powerful modern poetry books I've read in a while. there were three different times I was almost moved to tears (and that usually NEVER happens to me while reading). Alicia is a force to be reckoned with and this book absolutely shows that. I can't wait to see what she ...

    Alicia's mixtape was pure brilliance, from the cover, to the concept, to the content, but the record is next level. Cook doesn't just write books. She takes you on a lyrical journey. And this time, she gives you the melodies. With the mixtape she gave you a suggested playlist, and wit...

    Alicia Cook is a genius. She marches to the beat of her own drum and the world is better for it. I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip bucks the expectations of modern poetry with incomparable grace. Do yourself a favor and buy this book. Read it. Love it. Share it. You'll be glad you did. ...

    Alicia Cook's creativity never ceases to amaze me. She first shook up poetry in Stuff I've Been Feeling Lately, by coordinating music with each piece. With I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip, she shakes it up once again. Alicia is taking poetry to new levels with every book release, setting...

    I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Alicia Cook is back, with her best work to date. I love seeing writers grow. I love seeing writers give readers an honest glimpse into their lives. This is not one-size-fits-all poetry. I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip is a diary, a t...

    I?ve been waiting for a year to read more from Alicia and I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED! There was one slight thing that I wasn?t to crazy about, and that was some of the songs/poems that she co-wrote with other people. Some of them just read weird or I just didn?t care for the songs. I...

    I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip by Alicia Cook is the Poets second complete collection of poetry. Cook earned her Bachelor's Degree in English Literature in 2008 and her MBA in 2012. She is employed as the Associate Director of Communications at Saint Peter's University. Cook is a fre...

    one of the most powerful modern poetry books I've read in a while. there were three different times I was almost moved to tears (and that usually NEVER happens to me while reading). Alicia is a force to be reckoned with and this book absolutely shows that. I can't wait to see what she ...

    Alicia's mixtape was pure brilliance, from the cover, to the concept, to the content, but the record is next level. Cook doesn't just write books. She takes you on a lyrical journey. And this time, she gives you the melodies. With the mixtape she gave you a suggested playlist, and wit...

    Alicia Cook is a genius. She marches to the beat of her own drum and the world is better for it. I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip bucks the expectations of modern poetry with incomparable grace. Do yourself a favor and buy this book. Read it. Love it. Share it. You'll be glad you did. ...

    Alicia Cook's creativity never ceases to amaze me. She first shook up poetry in Stuff I've Been Feeling Lately, by coordinating music with each piece. With I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip, she shakes it up once again. Alicia is taking poetry to new levels with every book release, setting...

    I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Alicia Cook is back, with her best work to date. I love seeing writers grow. I love seeing writers give readers an honest glimpse into their lives. This is not one-size-fits-all poetry. I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip is a diary, a t...

    I?ve been waiting for a year to read more from Alicia and I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED! There was one slight thing that I wasn?t to crazy about, and that was some of the songs/poems that she co-wrote with other people. Some of them just read weird or I just didn?t care for the songs. I...

    Thank you Netgalley and Andrews McMeel publishing for providing me with an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. This was my first book by Alicia Cook and let me just say that I truly enjoyed this poetry book. It's proven difficult for me to find a poetry book that I ac...

    Thank you to Alicia Cook for selecting me to be one of your readers who got an early copy of your latest poetry book. All opinions are my own. I rate this a 5 out of 5 stars. I don't know that I've reviewed poetry on my blog before, but If you follow me on IG you know that I love...

    I read this book as an ARC. I spent the afternoon into the evening reading Alicia Cook?s new book of poetry entitled I Hope My Voice Doesn?t Skip. It took me a few poems to get the feel for her voice and style of poetry but after I acclimated, I enjoyed her work. I would call her a...

    I always feel like my reviews and ratings of poetry books are a bit harsher. It's probably because I have to find them either breathtaking or ingenious to give them a higher rating. I think, overall, this collection just wasn't for me. Although I liked and was able to relate to som...

    A solid collection of poetry. I keep finding myself drawn to "Instagram poets," which to me sounds like it'd be a derisive term, but in most cases (this included) I've been really impressed. Cook is a confident poet addressing some hard-hitting topics. My only real critique is that I'd...

    Such a delight to see a fellow Jersey native get her work out there! Hearing her speak about pieces and read in person was absolutely delightful and made the experience so much more amazing. Such relatable poems. It?s inspiring to read pieces both in the thick of such despair and yet...

    A new instapoet voice for me, I found the collection quite readable and relatable. Many of the poems included are songs, with links to where you can hear them performed. I like that connection and merge into music. There are usual themes of grief, loss, empowerment, but also reflection...

    As I often find with poetry collections, some of these poems spoke deeply to me, and others I couldn't connect with all. I could still see how they could be relate-able to others. I found the writing style to be easy to read, and easy to get lost in. I read it cover to cover, and hardl...

    Alicia's mixtape was pure brilliance, from the cover, to the concept, to the content, but the record is next level. Cook doesn't just write books. She takes you on a lyrical journey. And this time, she gives you the melodies. With the mixtape she gave you a suggested playlist, and wit...

    Alicia Cook is a genius. She marches to the beat of her own drum and the world is better for it. I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip bucks the expectations of modern poetry with incomparable grace. Do yourself a favor and buy this book. Read it. Love it. Share it. You'll be glad you did. ...

    Alicia Cook's creativity never ceases to amaze me. She first shook up poetry in Stuff I've Been Feeling Lately, by coordinating music with each piece. With I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip, she shakes it up once again. Alicia is taking poetry to new levels with every book release, setting...

    I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Alicia Cook is back, with her best work to date. I love seeing writers grow. I love seeing writers give readers an honest glimpse into their lives. This is not one-size-fits-all poetry. I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip is a diary, a t...

    I?ve been waiting for a year to read more from Alicia and I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED! There was one slight thing that I wasn?t to crazy about, and that was some of the songs/poems that she co-wrote with other people. Some of them just read weird or I just didn?t care for the songs. I...

    Thank you Netgalley and Andrews McMeel publishing for providing me with an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. This was my first book by Alicia Cook and let me just say that I truly enjoyed this poetry book. It's proven difficult for me to find a poetry book that I ac...

    Loved how the first book was a cassette and now it?s a record. Excited to see these new poems! ...

    Thank you to Alicia Cook for selecting me to be one of your readers who got an early copy of your latest poetry book. All opinions are my own. I rate this a 5 out of 5 stars. I don't know that I've reviewed poetry on my blog before, but If you follow me on IG you know that I love...

    I read this book as an ARC. I spent the afternoon into the evening reading Alicia Cook?s new book of poetry entitled I Hope My Voice Doesn?t Skip. It took me a few poems to get the feel for her voice and style of poetry but after I acclimated, I enjoyed her work. I would call her a...

    I always feel like my reviews and ratings of poetry books are a bit harsher. It's probably because I have to find them either breathtaking or ingenious to give them a higher rating. I think, overall, this collection just wasn't for me. Although I liked and was able to relate to som...

    A solid collection of poetry. I keep finding myself drawn to "Instagram poets," which to me sounds like it'd be a derisive term, but in most cases (this included) I've been really impressed. Cook is a confident poet addressing some hard-hitting topics. My only real critique is that I'd...

    I received an Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of Alicia Cook?s new poetry collection in exchange for an honest review. This book deals with some heavy topics, so I suggest every reader looks at the Trigger Warning (TW) at the beginning of the collection and in the table of contents befor...

    Such a delight to see a fellow Jersey native get her work out there! Hearing her speak about pieces and read in person was absolutely delightful and made the experience so much more amazing. Such relatable poems. It?s inspiring to read pieces both in the thick of such despair and yet...

    A new instapoet voice for me, I found the collection quite readable and relatable. Many of the poems included are songs, with links to where you can hear them performed. I like that connection and merge into music. There are usual themes of grief, loss, empowerment, but also reflection...

    As I often find with poetry collections, some of these poems spoke deeply to me, and others I couldn't connect with all. I could still see how they could be relate-able to others. I found the writing style to be easy to read, and easy to get lost in. I read it cover to cover, and hardl...
