Book Review: “The Witch Doesn’t Burn in This One”

Book twenty one of my 2019 Reading Challenge.

Amanda Lovelace’s The Witch Doesn’t Burn in This One

This collection of poems is book two of Amanda Lovelace’s ‘Women Are Some Kind of Magic‘. The first is The Princess Says Herself in This One, which I reviewed earlier this month.

I enjoyed this collection more than the first installment because of the content and overall message.

I think empowering women is a great subject to write about in today’s climate. Poetry can be a powerful medium to speak out about what’s happening in society and Lovelace does it in a beautifully artistic way.

I’m slowly falling in love with poetry and I’m itching to write some of my own. I think reading poetry can really boost someone’s feelings in a positive way. I’ve needed a little bit of a pick-me-up recently and this book did exactly that, it gave me something to look forward to, something to strive for. Thank you Amanda Lovelace.

I’m hoping to finish off this trio of poetry books and I recommend you pick it up as well. Especially if you’re a woman in need of a little inspiration.

Stay tuned for my next review: An Age of License: A Travelogue by Lucy Knisley.
