A unique alignment of verse and imagination that represents new worlds that are reflective of our times. As a poetry and science fiction fan, I was intrigued by this title.

i did not understand one thing i just read. i told myself "that's it mate, fuck this" and DNFed at 24% in it. i LOVE horror and when i saw the synopsis of this book saying it's a horror in poetry form, i had to try it. unfortunately, it didn't work out for me AT ALL. i don't really understand the normal poetry sometimes, never mind a horror which just doesn't make sense to me. i read this and my mind was like "wtf did i just read" at all times. literally every poem that i read. it's a BIG no no for me and i definitely do not recommend this even if u're a horror fanatic lol

Thanks to Netgalley for providing this e-arc!

It was a fun quick, yet slow, read! Not too attached but I wouldn't mind reading more poems that are similar

I'm not usually a poetry person, but this one drew my attention with its cover and title.
Some of the poems definitely went over my head, but even I could recognize their themes of lovecraftian horror and such creatures' view on racism, sexism and more. I found them fascinating even as I didn't always get them, and when I did get them I liked them.
The poems always flowed well and were fitting in their different formats. Some were connected, and I liked the reoccuring themes and topics, making the collections of poems an overall experience rather than just a bunch of singular entities.

this was...... not my thing. at all. 

listen, i like horror as much as the next person, but in poetry form? that's harder to pull off in my opinion. a full length novel has more of a chance to build suspense and create an atmosphere. a poem has to do that much more quickly. and here, it didn't pull it off. i didn't feel like i was reading a horror collection of poems, i just felt like i was reading something boring that didn't make much sense.

Like the name suggests this is not your normal book of poems. I think that they were good. I don’t normally read or understand poetry but, I felt that these poems were good. I feel like I would read more from this author.

This was a good and fast read. I enjoyed it all and would buy the hardcopy when it comes out. The cover art drew me in and I must say I was not disappointed. I love the writing style as well.

Titillating poetry, confounds the mind and engages the senses. True LoveCraft style. Might confuse you, will lure you in and you'll want more.

The illustration is what caught my eye at first. I know you should not judge a book by its cover but the illustration was eye-catching. Can You Sign My Tentacle? Is really in a genre all its own. It is told through poetic verses inspired by musicians and Horror fiction creations. I definitely want to see if there will be an audiobook accompanying this one on its release.

Thank you Netgalley for the ARC of this book!

Can You Sign My Tentacle is a compilation of poetry. I managed to finish it in one sitting, some parts I liked, some I barely got over at all. I'd just say that it is not really my cup of tea but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

I requested this one because it might be a 2021 title I would like to review on my Youtube Channel. However, after reading the first several chapters I have determined that this book is not my tastes. So I decided to DNF this one rather than push myself to finish it only to give it a poor review.
I am very hit or miss with Horror poetry

I’m not sure exactly what I just read, but I am absolutely here for it!  Equal parts HP Lovecraft, Childish Gambino, and Emily Dickinson makes for a weird and wild read. 

Honestly the poems sound like the thoughtful rambling of someone stoned out of their mind, you know where you’re not sure if it’s profound or just seems profound for a moment.  

The cover artwork is killer and I wish there was more throughout, but alas there is not.

Overall 3.5 stars.  If you like horror and hip hop, this is definitely worth a read.
