the witch doesn't burn in this one

Well friends, it’s safe to say, this one just didn’t do it for me. Poetry seems to be something that is very hit or miss with me. It is also is the genre that I find myself most intimidated by, however, I’ve really been trying to broaden my horizons in terms of what I’ll read. Fantasy, YA, romance, mysteries, and contemporaries are all fun to read, but sometimes I want something more thought provoking and inspiring. So needless to say, I was rather excited to start this one because poems about women empowering women? YES PLEASE.

So where did it all fall short for me, you ask?

Majority of these poems were written with such anger and rage towards men that I just don’t vibe with it. Don’t get me wrong, I 100% consider myself a feminist. I wholeheartedly believe that in today’s world there is absolutely no reason we should be treated differently than men. But some of these poems where written in a way that could lead readers to believe men as horrible and lesser beings than women. Which is anything but empowering in my opinion. Do I feel empowered or inspired by this collection? Sadly, no. I guess Amanda Lovelace's poems aren't for me.

All in all, I think this one definitely wasn’t for me. While there were some poems that I felt were empowering and inspiring I just couldn’t get past the angry vibe these poems gave off. However, poetry is something that everyone interprets differently, so in no way would I ever tell someone not to read this. Give it a shot and see for yourself. While you’re at it make sure to check out the first collection of poems The Princess Saves Herself In This One, that I mentioned above. It’s something you can tell was deeply personal to the author but still very relatable and something that makes you really feel.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
