Review

This book was provided by the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Netgalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing!

the witch doesn’t burn in this one is a poetry collection about feminism, being confident, rape and many more inspiring subjects.

the witch doesn’t burn in this one is the first poetry collection I read written by Amanda Lovelace and I cannot wait to read her first book, the princess saves herself in this one. Amanda Lovelace’s poetry is so beautiful and inspiring and I couldn’t stop reading!

My favourite poems from the collection are:
  • the best kept
  • secret.
  • but i owe some things to myself, too.
  • trouble trouble.
  • survival.
  • you are your own lighthouse.
  • we tried to warn you.
  • they wanted us weak but they forced us to be strong.
  • my body rejects your desires.
  • expectations vs. reality.
  • everything is a distraction.
  • how to prevent getting sexually assaulted.
  • how to prevent sexually assaulting someone.
  • what men dream about.
  • she.
  • things i will struggle to say & that’s okay.
  • a witch knows mirrors do sometimes lie.
  • we need you here & whole.
  • your winter will come to an end.
  • no one will be left in dark, dusty corners.
