Title: The Witch Doesn’t Burn in This One (Women are some kind of magic #2)
Author: Amanda Lovelace
Publication Date: March 6, 2018
My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book through NetGalley.
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.
I finished The Princess Saves Herself in This One back in November, and I connected with it on such a deep level. When I realized that Amanda had a new title in the same collection coming out soon, I was ecstatic. The Witch Doesn’t Burn in This One smashed all expectations that I had.
Much like the first book in this collection, The Witch Doesn’t Burn in This One was such an empowering read. From the moment I started reading, I felt like I could do anything and that nobody could hold me back. I feel like poetry is such a personal experience, therefore there’s not much I can say other than to urge all women to pick this book up and give it a chance. You will actually feel like you can breathe fire and conquer all that stands in your way. Amanda has such a way with words, and there are times when you feel like you’re being addressed directly.
I give this title 5 out of 5 stars, and I urge everyone to go grab a copy.
