Review of The Witch Doesn’t Burn In This One (Women Are Some Kind of Magic #2) by Amanda Lovelace

The Witch Doesn’t Burn In This One (Women Are Some Kind of Magic #2) by Amanda Lovelace

Review: I was super excited for this book! It’s so beautiful!!! Although the poems are touching and on really  important things to young women. I could not help but think that most were a bit over kill being set in a feminist outrage. Don’t get me wrong, a lot of things said in  the poems need to be said, but it felt  that a lot of poems were repeating each other. All in all I did very much love this book of poetry by Lovelace.

Favorite quote:

i don’t need you

to write my story.


i write it



and you couldn’t

even translate


the fucking



Would I? Reread? YES. Tell others to read now? Of course.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars.

Edition:Paperback, 208 pages. Target special edition, with extra poems and white cover.

Poetry. Feminism.

Published March 6th 2018 by Andrews McMeel Publishing.

Summary: 2016 Goodreads Choice Award-winning poet Amanda Lovelace returns in the witch doesn’t burn in this one — the bold second book in her “women are some kind of magic” series. 

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.
