    One thought on “Haiku Princess: Poems in Ascending Order of Profanity”

    1. **Received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.**I am not sure why I even requested this book -- I hate poetry; I just don't get it and it frustrates me.But boy am I glad that I requested this book! This was freaking fantastic.It was so incredibly snarky and obscene, it was just my kind of book! Not only were the poems quirky and crass, the illustrations that accompanied were super fun and awesome to look at. While fantastic, it was very short and left me wanting [...]

    2. **I received this via Netgalley and the Publisher in exchange for an honest review**I really don't know what I read! The one word that comes to mind is bizarre. Now I am not by any means a person that reads a lot of poetry as there are always deeper meanings and sometimes I don't think my intelligence stretches that far. However, I wanted to start reading a bit more and this one instantly caught my attention. I have a crude sense of humour and not one to shy away from foul language or sexual ref [...]

    3. “Remove dress, release pushed-up breasts, unstrap Spanx for corpse-fucking husband.”What…what did I just READ?! I’m not sure what I was expecting. I mean, the blurb is on point: raunchy haikus paired with Victorian illustrations. That’s exactly what you get (although the cover is deceivingly beautiful and makes me feel like there must be some hidden phallic imagery in there or something).But I still can’t help but ask, “WHY?” Part of me feels that someone with greater knowledge o [...]

    4. Firstly, I must point out that this title is pretty accurate. Secondly, I loved this book. Don't think too much about it. Just turn the pages and let the author drag you down into her unique, satirical literary world. That's just the way to enjoy this wickedly brilliant collection of haiku. Some of the haiku in this book made me chuckle. Most made me laugh aloud. This is a pretty twisted take on haiku and I mean that in the best of ways! This is a collection I can totally see myself buying for m [...]

    5. I received a free copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This was a really quick, fun read. I really enjoyed the illustrations. I would not, however, pay the price of an average book for this because I read it in less than 15 minutes. Most of the book was illustrations. The haiku themselves were mostly very creative and some were quite raunchy. I would recommend this for a college writing class or anyone interested in poetry who is not likely to be offended by raunchy language.4 st [...]

    6. This short book of Haiku's made me laugh out loud a couple of times.Does that say something about my sence of humor? Oh well, at worst it means I'm in the presence of a certain kind of humor a lot (hi menboobs Ehm Husband ), but as I see it Tanager can make something great out of the profane.I received a free copy through Netgalley in return for an honest review.

    7. These are pretty funny/ entertaining.Here's a sample (that's not one of the profane ones, though there are many)Imposter! My realself-esteem would never sayI looked good in shorts.They don't always follow the traditional 5-7-5 haiku rules, but I guess if you're uptight enough to focus on rules then this book isn't for you anyway.

    8. Really enojyed this! Not what I was expecting at all. It was beautiful and witty and laugh out loud funny!

    9. This book of poems by H. O. Tanager delivers on its promise of ascending profanity, while doing little to prevent the dip in quality at each stage. The book is divided into five stages: Cradle, Maiden, Lady, Crone and Holy One, which seem to bare little relationship with the subject matter of the poems.What makes the later sections boring is less the use of crass words for ejaculate, but the fact that several of the earlier Haiku’s in the cradle section are actually quite clever and evoke more [...]

    10. The haiku is one of those forms of poetry which sometimes I love and sometimes simply don't get. So when I saw the chance to explore this form once again but now with a distinctly modern seeming edge to it, I decided the time was right. Thanks to HO. Tanager Press and Netgalley for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I was surprised to find how much I enjoyed reading Tanager's haikus in Haiku Princess. The haiku form is one which has always felt abstract to me, [...]

    11. Pros:-Loved the cover-Loved the subtitle/concept. "Poems in Ascending Order of Profanity" alone made me smile.-As someone who thinks poetry doesn't get enough attention, it was satisfying to see a book of haiku published.-The Victorian imagery was beautiful and in many cases added another dimension to the joke of the poem. Seriously, the illustrations alone are worth flipping through this book in a bookstore.-I could see this being a decent joke gift for someone who uses a lot of profanity and i [...]

    12. I received this copy from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.I wish this book lasted longer! I giggle-snorted my way through so quickly. I was not for sure what to expect with Haiku Princess but I was not disappointed. H.O. Tanager has a fantastic way of making you giggle and gasp when it's really not that naughty, well, not always. If you have a beautiful dirty mind and are not easily "offended" this is a cute little book of non traditional Haiku's that would be great [...]

    13. The cover and the artwork included in this collection are simply marvelous. Sadly, I cannot say the same about the poems. They were written in haiku form and they were separated into five parts, according to their broader thematology. Most of the poems relied heavily on sexual themes, but this is not at all what prevented me from enjoying them. Most of the poems seemed like puns or jokes one usually narrates to a friend and they seemed to me to lack this "magicality" of poetry. I had high expect [...]

    14. This book is lovely. It absolutely lives up to its name--if sex and swear words bother you, look elsewhere because Haiku Princess is rife with both.I laughed out loud many times, sharing the clever poems as I made my way through.Honestly, the worst part is that it is so short. The art is wonderful, but takes a lot of space that could have been filled with more hilarious writing. I would love a few hundred pages more of the art and poetry like this.Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book f [...]

    15. I love poetry and Haiku and I am the one to say some of the most dirty jokes in any of my friend groups. Reading the description and intrigued by the cover, I requested and was approved for a NetGalley copy. While two or three of the poems made me smile and an equal amount were so bad they were good, all the others were simply boring and unable to provoke any reaction from me.

    16. This book was lots of fun for sure. It wasn't any heavy reading, the subject matter wasn't deep or world changing or anything, but it was a fun read while I waited for the power to come back on after a storm. And that's pretty much all i've got!

    17. I had a friend recommend this book to me and I read bits and pieces of it. Honestly it seemed so childish to me that I couldn't wait to be finished with it. I'll be adding a longer review soon, but I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone that likes poems.

    18. Horrible! The illustrations inside are great, for the most part, but that is because they were not created by the "author". Don't be fooled by the nice cover, there is nothing good about the Haiku's inside.

    19. Would have been more enjoyable if I could see the entire page, but my copy was dumb. Drawings were gorgeous. The poems were hit and miss, but the all were enjoyable. Made me laugh, and some shocked me into cackles. I think it would make a great coffee table book.

    20. I received an ecopy from NetGalley in exchange for a review.I really wanted to like this book. I love haiku and write funny ones myself but these were just flat. A few made me smile, but on the whole they were not great. I'm so disappointed!

    21. There are times I wonder, "How did that get published?" This is one of those times.This collection reads like a drinking game. The shot-word is "lube."

    22. Hilarious poems, which is saying a lot because I typically don't like poems, BUT way too short. I could have read those for an hour, but the read took literally 5 mins.Recommend. but need more.
