the witch doesn't burn in this one - Amanda Lovelace

Title: the witch doesn’t burn in this one (women are some kind of magic #2)
Author: Amanda Lovelace; ladybookmad
Genre: Poetry
Publisher: Andrews McMeel Publishing
Published on: March 6th, 2018

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.


*Thank you to Netgalley, the Publisher and Authors for allowing me to read this book for a fair and honest review*

Hello Fellow Readers,

If you like you can read the review for the first book HERE

The way I rate poetry depends entirely on the emotional response I have. Usually, with books, I look at the writing, the main character, plot developments. Poetry, on the other hand, is much more complicated and I am not by any means a master (nor am I with books, but obviously nothing is stopping me). So, I usually just go with whatever reaction I have. If I have no reaction, then most likely I will rate it low. If I do, then well it depends on the emotion evoked and my interpretation of the written words.

If I had to give a emotion to what this poetry book made me feel, it would be empowerment. While Lovelace’s last book was enjoyable it didn't have me respond like this one. I read this in one day because I wanted to keep the feeling alive. I fully believe this is the type of poetry book you can skip to any page every day and love what your reading, while feeling like a woman building herself up to great feats.

I am a 30-year-old woman and it's somewhat refreshing to still became so open to a non-self help book and feel this way (although, this is a self-help book in its own way). While there formatting was a slightly bothersome I really loved the book. A must read for any girl/women who need encouragement and support.
