The title alone made me want to purchase this book. I have had this book on my wishlist on amazon for a couple of months now and I was finally able to purchase it after putting myself on a ban for buying books until I got through my bookshelf lol. So, I am glad to finally give you guys my intake on this poetry book. I purchased this book from Target but you can get it from Amazon, Walmart and many other book stores. Lets get started on the poetry book called The Princess Saves Herself in This One by Amanda Lovelace...
Plot: There is no plot in this poetry book but it kinda does have a theme. The theme of this book is self empowerment. Throughout the book, there is many poems that relate to going through so many heavy issues from abuse, addiction, to break ups, then realizing your worth. It has a poem relatable to anyone from teenagers to adults. I was able to relate to many topics throughout the book and Lovelace made sure that she got her point across.
write the story.
into the dirtiest
parts of yourself.
rot & decay
& turn it into
nourishment & life.
& sing to it
& show it
grow a beautiful garden
from your aching
& teach yourself
how to thrive from it.
write your story.

My thoughts on the book: I enjoyed the book a lot and understood why everyone was trying to get their hands on it. The structure of the poems were unique and had different styles to them. For example, some poems would be shaped like hearts or broken down to look like a certain image. I think the author gave us the readers -- her raw self and was able to release some of the issues that went on throughout her life. I didn't realize that the book was about 200 pages because each poem kept me engaged. I would recommend it to anyone because the book touched on many issues that a lot of people have gone through.
QOTD: What is one book you have been reading lately that has made you think deeply about yourself?
