The Princess Saves Herself in this One by Amanda Lovelace
Review: I was and still am completely in love with Amanda Lovelace. I can not stop rereading her poetry and checking Instagram to see if she posted any new poems or is talking about her next poetry book. I love her work so much that I printed a couple of her poems to go in my poetry book that I made in my book binding class (I had to fill up the insides of like six books that I made, and I did one poetry book). I also plan on getting this book for my younger sister who also just got into poetry, same as me.
Anyway, I felt that I could relate to almost each and every one of Lovelace’s poems in this book. There were even some poems that made me eyes tear up from touching me so deeply and I felt that they also understood me as I understood them. Yes I know that sounds crazy, and I am most likely coming off as insane to you guys but that what I feel, so there.
Favorite quote: I am in love with the dedication to the boy who lived.
Would I? Reread? YES, I want to right now!!! Recommend? YES, PLEASE READ THIS!! Read more from this author? YES!!
