growing up a word-devourer & avid fairy tale lover, it was only natural that amanda lovelace began writing books of her own, & so she did. when she isn’t reading or writing, she can be found waiting for pumpkin spice coffee to come back into season & binge-watching gilmore girls. (before you ask: team jess all the way.) the lifelong poetess & storyteller currently lives in new jersey with her fiancé, their two moody cats, & a combined book collection so large it will soon need its own home. as of 2016, she is working towards her b.a. in english literature with a minor in sociology. the princess saves herself in this one, originally published in 2016, is her debut poetry collection.
 
her official website is amandalovelace.com.
 
you can also find her as ladybookmad on twitter, instagram, & tumblr. (she hasn’t quite figured out snapchat yet.)

This was an excellent poetry book.

Beautiful and absolutely incredible. I'm actually frustrated while writing this review because I know that nothing I say will be as beautiful as the poetry that it is about. Amanda has somehow managed to break my heart then put it all back together. Even though my personal story is different from the one that was written in this collection of poetry, I still felt like I was being understood in a way that I haven't before. I could relate to the loss of a parent, life being tragic taken, toxic relationships with people who were meant to be your cure, and finally the feeling of being whole all on your own. These are things that are not the "normal" topics of conversation, so it was wonderful to feel like someone else understood my own pain and triumphs. This felt like a full, cohesive narrative, which is usually hard to achieve in poetry collections. Every word felt purposeful. This work of art makes me want to create some art of my own.

This book was exceptional. This collection of poems was so personal and heart-wrenching that I had to put it down momentarily and collect myself on multiple occasions. Even though it was so personal, it still managed to be very relatable and engaging. I found myself flying through the poems because I NEEDED to know the princess's story; I NEEDED to know she was okay or at least that she was going to be. I've already read this collection twice and I foresee myself revisiting it's pages over and over again. Like all collections, there were standouts, but none of them were anything less than excellent.

A raw, emotional journey, told through beautifully crafted poetry. I was left speechless after reading this book the first time, and it was just as powerful the second time around. I cannot wait to read more of Miss Lovelace's writing.
