    This was a cute and quick read. I like when collections match an overall theme and aren't divided from each other - here we get a literal alternation, with one author's poem preceding another author's short story and poem, repeating for a total of 10 short stories and 10 poems (thou...

    Wooohooooo I got my wish! Thank you so much to Central Avenue Publishing for granting me the opportunity to read an e-arc of this poetry collection in exchange for an honest review! Thank you also to Netgalley, which is a great platform as always! Sooo...poetry...I think that I?ve...

    4 stars! This collection of poetry was really good !! I liked most of the texts. I recommend this receuil to all those who love poetry in general. Thanks to Netgalley for this e-arc in exchange of my honest review. ...

    A great anthology of short stories and poems that includes very inspirational pieces. I love how the words of every poet who took part in this book are connected to each other. Alex Jeanty, Cyrus Parker, Yena Sharma Purmasir, Amanda Lovelace, and Iain S. Thomas? pieces were my fav...

    It take me a while to get through anthologies but I loved the last section where it was the poems. I really enjoyed this book. If you are just starting off with poetry you should pick it up or if you are a poetry lover pick it up too! ...

    This is absolutely beautiful book. First of all the idea of it! OMG! So wonderfully clever! The book contains poems of ten different authors and short stories followed, based on the poem, but wrote by different author. Such a great circle of unique, creative writing! I love thi...

    [Dis]connected is a unique collection of contemporary writing, in which poets write poems on the theme of connection and then write a short story about another writer's poem from the collection. The result is an emotional collection that takes similar lines and concepts in different di...

    I liked this book! Even though it's been a looong time since I've willingly read a short story (thanks required school reading), I found myself engaged in the various stories and wishing that they lasted longer. I didn't entirely see the theme of being disconnected in every piece, ...

    Thought provoking content as well as an intriguing way to connect writers. ...

    I received an ebook proof from Netgalley for an honest review. This was a really unique book filled with a wide cast of poets, some I love and some were new to me. Anthologies are difficult to review, as each story is different.I reviewed the short stories individually, obviously ...

    a lovely composition of poems and stories!! all of the writers have a way of dragging you into their stories and not letting you go. definitely a 5/5!! ...

    Thank you to NetGalley, Central Avenue Publishing and all of the authors for giving me a copy of [DIS]CONNECTED in exchange for my honest review! ~~~ Review was originally posted on my blog: www.danithebookaholic.com ~~~ When I first received [Dis]Connected I was intrigued ...

    Disclaimer: I received this free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I requested this on NetGalley purely because I saw that Amanda Lovelace had a short story in this collection. While I love her poetry, poetry isn't my favourite type of book to read, so I wanted to...

    Wow, wow, wow this is an incredible connection. Going in I expected more poetry than short stories but in the end, I thought these were some of the best short stories I have ever read. There was a real sense of variety despite the connection they all share and the collection itself. ...

    I got this from netgalley for review. This is a very cool concept! It's a mixture of poetry and short stories that all connect by using parts from the previous writer's poem. SO NEAT. I complain a lot about how I lose steam with poetry collections sometimes because they don't flow a...

    Just as the title is unique, so is the concept of this book. Take a group of current day poets, and have each poet write one poem, and one short story based on another poet's (in the group) poem. The working theme for each poem/story is that in this age where we are so digitally connec...

    I love the premise behind this poetry/short story collection. Each writer must read a poem from another author, then write a short story loosely inspired by the piece. The story has to include at least one line from the poem. This unique and fun structure sets the book apart from other...

    This is an interesting project with a great concept and a lot of talented poets. The editor asked the contributors to write poems that were then passed on to each other as inspiration for short stories or other poems in what could be called a poetic game of telephone. Some of the stori...

    I enjoyed this collection a great deal. Part of what made it work for me is its concept-- poets writing poems, and then writing short stories playing off concepts or lines in a (randomly assigned) poem by one of their peers. I liked this for a few reasons-- one, the contributing poets ...

    I love the premise behind this poetry/short story collection. Each writer must read a poem from another author, then write a short story loosely inspired by the piece. The story has to include at least one line from the poem. This unique and fun structure sets the book apart from other...

    This is an interesting project with a great concept and a lot of talented poets. The editor asked the contributors to write poems that were then passed on to each other as inspiration for short stories or other poems in what could be called a poetic game of telephone. Some of the stori...

    I usually thoroughly enjoy great, emotive and inspirational poetry, so I absolutely loved this wonderful anthology including prose by some of the biggest names in the poetry game right now. It's a collection of short stories and poetry whereby a poet is handed a poem written by another...

    This was a cute and quick read. I like when collections match an overall theme and aren't divided from each other - here we get a literal alternation, with one author's poem preceding another author's short story and poem, repeating for a total of 10 short stories and 10 poems (thou...

    2.5 I was pretty excited about the release of [Dis]Connected when it was first announced. What's not to like about a poetry anthology? I spoke too soon. The idea to this anthology is that each author submits three poems that adhere to the overall theme. The poems are assigned ...

    I stepped into this collection with the type of trepidation born of the belief that most projects spurred by publishers fall into the "it seemed like a good idea at the time" category. Seriously, choose a dozen young poets and ask them to hone their short-story skills by using other po...

    Received this ARC from the publishers for free. In exchange for an honest review. I loved the idea behind this book. 10 poets. 10 poems and 10 short stories. The poem is written by someone and then the short story is written by someone else but are connected. And so on. In this big...

    4 stars! This collection of poetry was really good !! I liked most of the texts. I recommend this receuil to all those who love poetry in general. Thanks to Netgalley for this e-arc in exchange of my honest review. ...

    A great anthology of short stories and poems that includes very inspirational pieces. I love how the words of every poet who took part in this book are connected to each other. Alex Jeanty, Cyrus Parker, Yena Sharma Purmasir, Amanda Lovelace, and Iain S. Thomas? pieces were my fav...

    It take me a while to get through anthologies but I loved the last section where it was the poems. I really enjoyed this book. If you are just starting off with poetry you should pick it up or if you are a poetry lover pick it up too! ...

    This is absolutely beautiful book. First of all the idea of it! OMG! So wonderfully clever! The book contains poems of ten different authors and short stories followed, based on the poem, but wrote by different author. Such a great circle of unique, creative writing! I love thi...

    Thought provoking content as well as an intriguing way to connect writers. ...

    I received an ebook proof from Netgalley for an honest review. This was a really unique book filled with a wide cast of poets, some I love and some were new to me. Anthologies are difficult to review, as each story is different.I reviewed the short stories individually, obviously ...

    a lovely composition of poems and stories!! all of the writers have a way of dragging you into their stories and not letting you go. definitely a 5/5!! ...

    Disclaimer: I received this free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I requested this on NetGalley purely because I saw that Amanda Lovelace had a short story in this collection. While I love her poetry, poetry isn't my favourite type of book to read, so I wanted to...

    Wow, wow, wow this is an incredible connection. Going in I expected more poetry than short stories but in the end, I thought these were some of the best short stories I have ever read. There was a real sense of variety despite the connection they all share and the collection itself. ...
