I was kindly provided with an early copy of this book via e-Arc, thanks to NetGalley. This does not influence my opinions.
If you follow my Instagram page you’d know that I first read Amanda Lovelace’s works in December at Christmas time and I became absolutely obsessed and I am so glad that this was the first arc i got approved for!
The Goodreads synopsis:
“more forgetting time.
more midnight dances with yourself.”
amanda lovelace, the bestselling & award-winning author of the “women are some kind of magic” poetry series, presents a new companion series, “you are your own fairy tale” the first installment, break your glass slippers, is about overcoming those who don’t see your worth, even if that person is sometimes yourself. in the epic tale of your life, you are the most important character while everyone is but a forgotten footnote. even the prince.
This collection of poems is passionate, burning, insightful, at times triggering and very thought provoking. I doubt it will be everyone’s cup of tea, but personally – Lovelace’s poetry collections seem to come into my life just when I need them.
Lovelace’s works take an interesting spin on fairy tales – weaving them into a mix of something modern, something that is almost pulled out of every day life and also the hint of that magic.
What I liked about the book: I enjoyed most of the poems and the artwork tied with them and I am excited about owning a physical copy of this book once it is available.
What I didn’t like about the book: There are some pretty triggering poems that hit too close to home for me, but there are trigger warnings at the beginning of the book.
My rating: 5/5 stars
The book will be available for purchase on March 17th 2020. Find more about it on Goodreads.
