"either take everything i have or drop it all & walk away. both are no longer an option i'm allowing. you see, it's not exactly in this girl's nature to be torn in two."
I feel pretty horrible for rating a poetry book about an abusive relationship less than 3 stars but these just didn't touch me at all. I liked maybe 3 of the 150 poems and that's just not enough for me. Just not my cup of tea.
Third book that I read from her and it’s amazing. Usually I’m quite confused with the new (modern?) poetry but with her every single page is a wonder. Can’t wait for 2019 to see the continuation of her works!
i think my opinion is somewhat unpopular in regards to this collection - i still think her debut was her strongest. it was very, very hard for me to find weak poems in that one, but in her second book, and this one, some of them just felt...unneccesary. i only really loved, loved two of them (which means i bothered enough to highlight the titles and not just go "hmm, that's good" and move on. so i think it was somewhat disappointing. i think it helped her a lot to get these out, but since i didn ...more
Amanda, please, stop milking the dead cow! This is the third book and I am starting to feel bad for your husband.
Can you please start talking about how the princess saved herself and moved on for good? Because it does feel like the princess keeps talking about self awareness but made the new prince do all the heavy lifting while she thinks about her ex.

By this point I would be interested more in your grocery shopping t ...more
This is the third of Amanda Lovelace's anthologies, that I have read, and I am convinced that she is incapable of ever penning a badly phrased or unstructured thought. Like her other two collections, there is an extraordinary amount of personal pain relayed to the reader as this opens up the details of the poet's own past. It takes such bravery to be as raw and honest as Lovelace is and every reader has much to gain from this soul laid bare in literary form.
as usual like all of amanda lovelace's work this book was fantastic. worth the wait and worth the read. (team jess!!!). so beautiful and so deep and so dark and so enlightening and so riveting.
“Darling, you are worthy.”
This is Amanda’s newest poetry collection, and I swear her writing just keeps getting better. This book is about moving on from unhealthy relationships and healing. Her words are beautiful and so powerful. I think this is my favourite if her books.
