Book Review: Amanda Lovelace the princess saves herself in this one


Blurb:

the princess saves herself in this one is a collection of poetry about resilience. It is about writing your own ending.

From Amanda Lovelace, a poetry collection in four parts: the princess, the damsel, the queen, and you. The first three sections piece together the life of the author while the final section serves as a note to the reader. This moving book explores love, loss, grief, healing, empowerment, and inspiration.

My Review; 3 ***
 First off I am not a huge fan of erotic poetry however, I am not going to judge Amanda's work by the theme she chose to write about. Amanda is a talented poet who's words flow with ease which makes it comfortable to read. The imagery is great, and the rhythm and rhyme is something that drew me in the most.

About the Poet: 
 growing up a word-devourer & avid fairy tale lover, it was only natural that amanda lovelace began writing books of her own, & so she did. when she isn't reading or writing, she can be found waiting for pumpkin spice coffee to come back into season & binge-watching gilmore girls. (before you ask: team jess all the way.) the lifelong poetess & storyteller currently lives in new jersey with her fiancĂ©, their two moody cats, & a combined book collection so large it will soon need its own home. as of 2016, she is working towards her b.a. in english literature with a minor in sociology. the princess saves herself in this one, originally published in 2016, is her debut poetry collection.
