    "Once upon a time, the princess rose from the ashes her dragon lovers made of her & crowned herself the mother-fucking queen of herself." I picked up this book immediately on my Kindle app after reading the lovely Mayflower's review. I really enjoyed this! I adored the use...

    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || Amazon || Pinterest i didn't realize that poetry could be achieved by hitting the enter key & then breaking up a sentence with a space who knew that all this time my english teachers were wrong? ...

    hitting enter after every word does not make it poetry. Or maybe it does these days. Between the highly praised Lang Leav and this latest Goodreads Choice finalist, I guess these emo tumblr quotes are the modern version of poetry. Call me old school, but I kind of e...

    I'm sorry (I'm actually not sorry) BUT THIS ISN'T POETRY. WTF is this? ah, life? the thing that happens to us while we're off somewhere else blowing on dandelions & wishing ourselves into the pages of our favorite fairy tales. THIS IS A FUCKING RIP OFF OF A...

    This book wasn't for me. I just didn't find the poems that profound or that good. However they were extremely honest and personal and that's what I did like about them. While I was reading this, I just kept thinking "what makes this poetry?". I don't mean to sound horrible but I just d...

    I am not into poetry the way I used to be when I was much younger, and I was meaning to pick up this book for a while now. I did not know what to expect but I was not prepared for all the emotions this book would bring out of me. I had dealt with loss and grief in many unhealthy way...

    i did really like this one! i found it on a list of suggestions after finishing a Rupi Kaur poetry collection and thought: "yes yes i have always wanted to try her books too". so apparently i read poetry now \_(?)_/ i'm not sad!! it makes me want to write beautiful turns of phrase in...

    I love poetry! However, I think that my love for poetry froze at the end of the nineteenth century. I'm not a fan of the poetry from the twentieth century and if this is how poetry looks in the twenty-first century than no, thank you very much. I'm not going to say this is not poet...

    Okay. Yeah. That was....well, not my favorite ever thing. I feel like I just read my middle school AIM away messages or 200 pages of emo Myspace updates. I need to go listen to some Dashboard Confessional STAT. I love the idea. I love the sentiments and the lessons, and CERTAINLY ...

    I wish I could give this 5 stars. But hitting Enter after each word (or Space after each letter) does not make for poetry. It simply doesn't. Other than that, I love The Princess Saves Herself in this One! Amanda, I understand your feelings completely. I know all about the sugar and...

    Sorry, but these poems were just not my cup of tea at all. I appreciate that the author has been through A LOT and I am proud of her for being brave enough to share her words. But unfortunately I couldn?t connect to her writing, I didn?t feel any kind of emotions from reading. I?...

    This is a deeply personal set of poetry that all tells a story. It was moving to read someone's story with a heart so open. I found these 2 poems meaningful to me: 1 You were sent down from the stars exactly the way you were supposed to be- the way you would love, the way you woul...

    The Princess Saves Herself in This One was a fairly emotional read for me. This poetry collection is divided into four different parts: the princess, the damsel, the queen, & you. And there were a lot of parts that really hit home (especially the princess), so much so that I had to...

    I want to review this honestly and go into the details about why I do not like this book of poetry. Every time I do though, I get attacked by random people who seem to have a fascination in seeing me die in random, and unimaginative, ways. Therefore, under duress: This book of poetry...

    Let me start by saying if there was a 0 star review this collection would have gotten it. Honestly feel like I've been robbed, and rarely do I have that feeling. Moral of the story, don't buy a book based on the title and Goodreads review alone, research into its content first. Here's ...

    I told myself that I would read this poetry book very slowly, even if it meant reading only one poem a day, a week, or however long in order for me to take the time to fully appreciate the words. Obviously that didn't happen when I finished it no more than 20 minutes later from startin...

    I did not intend to read this book but somehow I did and I fell in love So. . . I?m not usually into poetry. Yes, I?ve always found it quite intriguing and fantastical how a few short rightly placed words could hold such powerful and deep message. How a few short ri...

    that is what abuse is: knowing you are going to get salt but still hoping for sugar for nineteen years. And so began my journey of love with this collection. You'll notice I didn't use the beginning quote. Well, I didn't love this from the very beginning. Towards the begin...
