This is just the best thing about having a kindle unlimited subscription, you get to discover such great new authors who I would've never read otherwise! I really liked how some of the poems dealt with the theme of friendship, while some poems in between did feel a little random versus the others. For a debut poetry chapbook, 'I See A Garden In My Head' is very well written, and not some of the 'insta poetry' types I found in a few other poetry books I read on Kindle Unlimited. I sometimes choose not to review some of the newer books with fewer reviews, because once a writer messaged me and tried to defend their work and it was not a nice conversation to have, nor do I have any intention to hurt new writers. Sorry for going off topic... Anyway, this book by Phuong Hunyh is definitely worth giving a read if you want to explore new voices in poetry.

    One of the best poetry collection I have read recently. I love how organised the content is! That surprised me and I am not really sure why!

Right from the very first poem to the last, I kept on reading each line as if I was the one who wrote it all. Yes, the content is that relatable.

Right from the very first poem to the last, I kept on reading each line as if I was the one who wrote it all. Yes, the content is that relatable. You will find so much comfort in between these poems as you will feel these lines were written just for you, bringing up the happy and not so happy moments which we all go through almost everyday. A much relatable book. Thank you, Books to Hook Publishing, for the advance reading copy.

    While I was searching for a poetry book to soothe my mind after a hectic week, I found this precious poetry chapbook by Phuong Huynh. Huynh made an extensive effort to make the reader dive through her ideologies spontaneously. Her poems are simple yet attractive and open up doors to think in-depth as those mainly based on life events. The way she engraved emotions in her poems is fascinating.

In addition, the illustrations pursue the reader to read till the end of the book. The rhymes, metaphors, and the other techniques that she used to enhance the literature value of the chapbook witness her creativity and uniqueness. Among all the other poems, Sunset is my favorite poem. “too young to take the heat, don’t you think? too proud to ask why you stopped calling and gave away this magical thing” I am still wondering whether I am too young to review this poem collection. Highly recommended and you will not regret the time invested to read this book.

    I see A Garden In My Head: A Poetry Chapbook by Phuong Huynh is a beautifully lyrical read that speaks directly to the vulnerabilities that, collectively, have been dominating the emotional landscape of the last several years. The shared experience of the human condition is at the forefront of these verses, touching a place that is deep within the soul, a place that is not often given voice. Each of Ms Huynh's thoughtfully chosen words will resonate on a fundamental level, and I was heartened by I see A Garden In My Head: A Poetry Chapbook by Phuong Huynh is a beautifully lyrical read that speaks directly to the vulnerabilities that, collectively, have been dominating the emotional landscape of the last several years.

The lines are beautifully written and immaculately connected. Every word has merit to the poem. While reading, I remember thinking how incredibly valuable this collection would be to a literary author. I say this because some of the lines, albeit talking about a typical event, are not delivered in cinematic language. They hold literary value, and they read like a beautiful song. The collection is organized into five sections. This gives you hindsight of what the author is talking about, making it easy to deduce the message. The poems are thought-provoking and relatable. The presentation of the chapbook is well-thought-out. The illustrations are simple, well-placed, and add optical value to the collection. This collection is the birth child of Poe and Kaur. It is beautiful and short as it is intellectual. I enjoyed it thoroughly. I would highly recommend it, especially if you are new to poetry; this will make you fall in love with the medium.

    I really like the cover and the butterflies flying above her head. The words are beautiful and there is some really lovely poems . You can keep going back to these poems . The poems are very short and the book is 44 pages not long. Thank you NetGalley for letting me read this book.

    This was a short but emotionally powerful poetry collection. The language and poetry techniques the author used to convey difficult emotions and topics worked so well and took the poems to new levels. The author used clever rhythm and patterns, and you could feel the raw passion coming through in the words. I can’t wait to read more from this author! Thank you to Netgalley, the publisher and author, for the chance to read and review this book.

    Phuong’s poems are beautiful, evocative and full of soul. I read through this book twice, once and then again out loud, marking and underlining with my pen, and tabbing my "favorites" which almost ended up being every other poem. There were lines that stopped me in my tracks because of how clearly, I saw my own experiences reflected in her words. By examining the value between the self, love, and spirituality her poetry dissects a wide range of life’s stages and offers ample opportunity for ease Phuong’s poems are beautiful, evocative and full of soul. I read through this book twice, once and then again out loud, marking and underlining with my pen, and tabbing my "favorites" which almost ended up being every other poem. There were lines that stopped me in my tracks because of how clearly, I saw my own experiences reflected in her words. By examining the value between the self, love, and spirituality her poetry dissects a wide range of life’s stages and offers ample opportunity for ease, often in stable iambic pentameter and the rhythm of rhyming couplets. Many of her poems have deep underlying messages and often serve as analogies of important life events for instance her very first poem , Twists and Turns, recalled to me, the last two years all of us on this earth had to deal with all the “twists and turns” of our daily existence. She hit the nail on the head(metaphor) with this sentence: “Life’s about twists and turns, your faith keeps you sane.” And this last one: “what is meant to last can only be shaken.” Phuong is clearly a poet and one that will blossom the more she writes, I will truly be wanting to see more of her work.

The author explores past relationships which are now gone and have become memories. It is quite difficult to acknowledge clearly and put into words the feelings one has when their partner is no longer part of their life. It’s even more difficult not to admit that one needs to mourn, one way or another, the relationship that didn’t go as wanted. The author shows the vulnerabilities of the connection between the partners and how difficult it was to deal with the change in status of the relationship. It’s more than a chapter book of poetry, it’s a deep insight into how losing the one you had at your side changes the entire perspective of things.

It’s safe to say that I was not disappointed - there are some truly beautiful poems contained within this short-but-sweet collection, and it really does pack a punch. Touching upon universal themes in a whimsical yet relatable way, Phuong Huynh’s writing invokes comparisons to Amanda Lovelace and Nikita Gill, famed for their work regarding trauma and healing, and if you like their poetry then I highly recommend you give this one a try. There are many poems in here I will return to again and again, and I’m already looking forward to what the author releases next. Beautiful – I highly recommend!

    A Poetry Chapbook It is a chapbook with soulful poems. The poems are assigned to different topics such as -Daytime silence, nighttime sirens -There is an end in Friends -We Dyed the roses -Between worlds -Elysian Poetry from Saigon is rarely available to me as a German reader. However, typical Vietnamese references are largely avoided. Instead, you learn about the feelings of a young woman in different emotional states. Not everything reaches me completely, but some good moments stick.

    This is a nice, concise poetry book with universal topics and themes that anyone can enjoy. As someone who is new to reading poetry, I found this collection to be very enjoyable, filled with lots of soul, and truly comes from the author's heart. It is of course not the most complex poetry out there, but it doesn't need to be. It says what it needs to say perfectly the way it chooses to. I highly recommend this read.

    This poetry chapbook description: "This pandemic has not been easy on anyone. We have all had our share of grief and loss. However, with things moving so fast, we haven’t been able to take a moment to sit down with our emotions. But you don’t have to face those emotions alone." made me expect more poems about the pandemic than there actually were. However, I liked Phuong Huynh's poems nonetheless.

    This chapbook is a fun book filled with lyrical writing. The frequent repetition of lines throughout the poems gives it a melodic, song-like feel. The writing is easy to decipher and free of the wordy puzzle-like mess that I think some chapbooks fall into. My favorite poems were Butterfly, Roses, and A Power Play. The illustrations throughout the book are beautiful. *A copy of the ebook was provided to me in exchange for an honest review*

The collection kicks off with reference to the pandemic, covering themes such as grief, loss, and isolation. I was immediately impressed by Huynh’s excellent use of imagery and strong focus on creating vivid sensory illustrations. However, I found that the heavy use of repetition didn’t seem appropriate given the shortness of the poems. I think this was intentional – a way to encapsulate the way the world almost stood still as we locked down – but in poems such as Twists and Turns, I just don’t think it was long enough to warrant such a great deal of repetition. It came off as space-filling or “fluffing” to me. Many of the poems read like song lyrics, with refrains and rhyming patterns. The use of “’bout” (meaning “about”) and parentheses at the end of lines enhanced this feeling of reading the lyrics to pop songs. I didn’t enjoy this, but that’s really a stylistic preference issue. gave me your trust (nothing to lose) gave you my care (hard to remove) - Memory Lane (page 10) Unfortunately, this pop-song style continued, and I began to feel like I was reading Taylor Swift lyrics. I’m not a Swiftie myself, but even I could pick out the similarities. I think there were some really great lines in this collection, but on the whole, I was disappointed. In my opinion, the poems are shallow and don’t live up to the lofty claims in the blurb. I would love to see Huynh develop her craft, as she clearly has potential. My favourite line comes from Scar (page 9): a friend indeed sees your true colours // some get the brush and paint you blue I rated this book two stars on Goodreads. It starts strong but quickly fizzles out, in my opinion. (Full review on thepatchworkfox.com)

    I was not as much of a fan of this as I expected to be. Huynh uses poetry to talk about several different topics from grief and loss to healing and friendship. While poetry is a deeply personal thing, I think I just expected more from something that had such great reviews. Reviews of this talk about the gorgeous imagery which I did see but not to the degree I was expecting or wanted.

I thought that each poem brought an overview through emotions relating to each of the topics but aside from that, I didn't get too much from it. It just seemed like an oversight and I didn't get that deep and personal connection that I was craving. I personally liked the last section titled Elysium the most, I think that was just the section that resonated with me the most but it was also my favourite. I had high hopes for this but I think I'm unlikely to recommend this collection.

    I See a Garden in My Head is a beautifully written collection of powerful poems. These are poems that I read again and again, finding comfort and acceptance in them.

    This collection of poetry was at time deep and riveting, but in other moments felt a bit superficial. With so many glowing and positive reviews, I think I expected more of the author's writing to resonate with me. But it was still pretty poetry, well written with solid imagery. I'm not sure that I would recommend this collection of poetry, but I also wouldn't dissuade anyone who was interested in picking up a copy and checking it out.

    I found too much of the imagery cliche to say anything new or make me reflect differently on the emotions and experiences the poet was trying to explore. The poet also employees many Americanisms in their word choices and the lexicon is basic. I prefer poetry that paints emotions with more detail and boldness. Thank you Netgallery for the ARC access.

    Thank you NetGalley for the chance to read and review this book! While the poetry seemed very sweet and you can tell that it comes from a good place it did read as slightly immature to me. While there will be many who love it, this definitely isn’t the collection for me.
