    Do you even understand how excited I am to be reading this?!

    The dedication itself was simply amazing and I REALLY appreciate the fact that this poetry collection has a page dedicated to trigger warnings.

    This poetry collection is everything my feminist soul needed. It’s everything ever woman’s soul needed. It’s authentic, it’s raw, it’s the ugly truth told with beautiful words.

    It gave me strength, it made me feel powerful & understood & less alone.

    This poetry collection is everything my feminist soul needed. It’s everything ever woman’s soul needed. It’s authentic, it’s raw, it’s the ugly truth told with beautiful words.

    It gave me strength, it made me feel powerful & understood & less alone.

    Amanda Lovelace has this powerful way to unify women and to make us think about what tomorrow will look like if we keep on fighting.

    I love every single words of this beautiful masterpiece.

    Amanda has managed to construct a breathtaking and awe-inspiring poetry collection that evoked emotions from me that I didn't realize were hidden in my heart. She crafts passion and anger together so well to create a feminist poetry collection that will raise spirits up and inspire readers in ways I cannot describe.

    I am always in awe of her work, and this collection is no different. It breaks down barriers and is drowning in various emotions that flow right off the page. Once again, I am blown

    The Witch Doesn't Burn In This One is a follow up to the author's, The Princess Saves Herself In This One. Like the previous poetry collection, it talks about misogyny, patriarchy, feminism, abuse, and other things relating to it. While the previous collection used the trope of women always being saved by men as a metaphor, this one used the Salem Witch Trials to port

    The Witch Doesn't Burn In This One is a follow up to the author's, The Princess Saves Herself In This One. Like the previous poetry collection, it talks about misogyny, patriarchy, feminism, abuse, and other things relating to it. While the previous collection used the trope of women always being saved by men as a metaphor, this one used the Salem Witch Trials to portray the oppression of women. It talked about how women are told to remain weak, that women are something for men before we are our own person. I think it did it really well and in a really powerful way. 

    The book is really dark and heavy since it does talk a lot about misogyny but it also encourages self love and the importance of it. I liked how it used the Salem Witch Trials as a metaphor since the horrific events themselves are a good portrayal of how women were murdered for not falling in line, to the point of being accused of being witches. The author used this as a way to talk about how it's good to go against that and people thinking that's wrong doesn't matter. It's an amazing and feminist collection of poetry.

    Amanda is so damn talented and I love her collections of poems. WITCH is the sequel to the masterpiece that was PRINCESS, and though I enjoyed the first collection more, this is still a book that deserves all the praise & success.

    Much like the first book in this poetry series, Amanda writes about feminism with a pleasantly surprising level of intersectionality and care; she touches on topics like transphobia, menstruation, rape culture, body-shaming, eating disorders, romanticization of abuse, and more. Her thoroughness is the reason I keep coming back to her writing - as well as her unapologetic nature when it comes to tackling rape and abuse culture in particular.

    That said, I struggled to even give this 4 stars (instead of 3, which I considered) because I struggled with the same problems I saw in her first book:

    1) Repetition - much of the poetry in this book feels and sounds so much like the first book, or like other poems within the same collection. I feel like I read the same phrasing a few too many times, though I won't count off for this one as it'd probably be less noticeable if you didn't read every poem back-to-back like I did.

    2) Her writing - something about her writing voice reminds me very much of the poetry I wrote on MySpace as a teenager, and not in a good way. If it was occasional, it would be a really enjoyable, nostalgic touch, but since it's almost every single poem, it begins to feel very dated.

    3) Inspirations used - there were three or four pieces in this book that felt like that had been lifted almost verbatim from inspirational quote images and tumblr posts I've been seeing float around the internet for years. It would be one thing if it was vague wording or base paraphrasing, but some of the imagery painted is just too on-the-nose to ignore. It gave me a weird feeling of deja vu throughout several pieces.

    All in all, I'm willing to round this up to 4 stars because, regardless of how I feel about her writing itself, the content is

    We need more feminist pieces. We need

    rants about rape culture, abuse, transphobia, misogyny, and body shaming. I will forever applaud Amanda for taking the steps that she does to promote intersectional feminism through her work, and would recommend this to anyone who enjoys poetry of its kind. While I will probably not pick up her future works, as I think this book made me accept that her writing is not my cup of tea, I would still encourage you to give this book a try.

    Picking up this poetry collection couldn't have come at a better time with having just read a book about powerful witches by Leslye Walton:

    Picking up this poetry collection couldn't have come at a better time with having just read a book about powerful witches by Leslye Walton:

    I really took to heart Amanda Lovelace's

     for its raw and honest take on love, loss, grief, and healing. Plus, the many feminist poems. So with this follow-up collection, I was keen on reconnecting with the author through her words.

    As the blurb states, these moving, relatable poems encourage resilience and embolden women to take control of their own stories. The main focus is on self-love and acceptance, feminism, girl-power, and women supporting women. So I missed my favorite section of having more personal poems.

    And with the focus being more on the aforementioned, I feel like I didn't take in anything new and refreshing from the collection. If I take a scroll through my recent retweets on Twitter (

    ), I can definitely see the same notions present in 

    . But they're important messages to convey so I didn't mind the resemblance that much.

    On that note, the poems that really stood out to me were the following:

    These are still sitting with me.

    I went into this knowing it's not my favorite style of poetry, which is why i'm withholding a rating. As always, a great message for those first delving into poetry/feminism, but for some reason I just can't vibe with each poem's delivery. I will say that I enjoyed book one more than this one.
