Title: The Witch Doesn’t Burn in this One
Author: Amanda Lovelace
Rating: 4 Stars
The witch: supernaturally powerful, inscrutably independent, and now—indestructible. These moving, relatable poems encourage resilience and embolden women to take control of their own stories. Enemies try to judge, oppress, and marginalize her, but the witch doesn’t burn in this one.
Today is the release day (March 6 2018) and even though I just ordered my copy, I couldn’t wait to read it. So I bought the kindle version. I LOVED The Witch Doesn’t Burn In This One! I’m so excited to have finally read this book, it feels like I have been waiting forever to get a copy. Amanda is such a talented and inspiring writer. Princess will always have a special place in my heart but this collection is my new favorite.
This poetry collection includes topics on feminism,rape culture,body shaming,eating disorders,abuse and many more. This collection of poems are powerful and empowering.
Reviewing poetry is difficult because there not written like a novel, but I found that the overall flow of the poems went really well together.This collection isn’t as personal as Princess, it focuses more on women as a whole group. Amanda has definitely grown as a writer. I love her writing and I will continue to support her in the future.
I am always blown away by her poems. Words cannot express how much I loved this book. I HIGHLY recommend this book!!!
