    Amanda just has a way with words that just simply hit home in a way I don't think anyone, but her would truly understand. She truly captures the feelings of loneliness, worthlessness, and depression better then anyone I have ever seen. I def want everything she has ever/ will ever writ...

    I feel weird rating a book of personal poetry because I feel like I?m 3 starring this girl?s love life... But I didn?t connect to this collection as much as her others, though I still tabbed and bookmarked a few stellar poems. ...

    I first read this when Amanda published it on Wattpad a couple of years ago as a thank you to her readers for supporting her debut, the princess saves herself in this one, and even then, I knew this was something special. Now, it has been revised, expanded upon, and given a new life wi...

    I enjoyed this, I enjoy this style of poetry and I don't care if it comes across as just 'tab and enter'. I think this style of poetry is just as valid as any other. I know I couldn't write stuff like this and I commend the poets who are willing to bare themselves and the intimate work...

    Amanda, please, stop milking the dead cow! This is the third book and I am starting to feel bad for your husband. Can you please start talking about how the princess saved herself and moved on for good? Because it does feel like the princess keeps talking about self awareness but made...

    A collection of beautiful, raw poems that cover the themes of toxicity (of the self and others) and the healing that comes after. The author?s personal experiences are wonderfully intertwined with metaphors of various fairytale monsters. ...

    ACTUAL RATING: 4.5 STARS If you?re going through a break up or have been through one, you must read this collection of poetry. This collection has the power to help people heal from the wounds others have caused, and it also can nudge others to stand up for themselves when they ar...

    The pain, the agony, they?re all there, on each page, ready to be read, by the right person. You. Read when you?re ready to move on. Read when you?re ready to accept you?re toxic too. Read when you need to know you?re not alone. Thank you again Amanda. ...

    9/24/18: So I reread the collection and took my time with it, finding that I enjoy it more than I did the first time around. However I still wished there was more. The title, To Make Monsters Out of Girls, made me think it would be a twisted fairytale. Like Red Riding Hood being taken...

    "either take everything i have or drop it all & walk away. both are no longer an option i'm allowing. you see, it's not exactly in this girl's nature to be torn in two." 2,5 stars. I feel pretty horrible for rating a poetry book about an abusive relationship less than 3 stars b...

    I think this just became my favorite poetry collection by Amanda. Her writing has been extremely important to me, ever since she self-published Princess! This one just really, really spoke to me though. It was raw and hard-hitting. I felt each and every word hit me. There isn't ...

    This is the third of Amanda Lovelace's anthologies, that I have read, and I am convinced that she is incapable of ever penning a badly phrased or unstructured thought. Like her other two collections, there is an extraordinary amount of personal pain relayed to the reader as this opens ...

    Third book that I read from her and it?s amazing. Usually I?m quite confused with the new (modern?) poetry but with her every single page is a wonder. Can?t wait for 2019 to see the continuation of her works! ...

    i think my opinion is somewhat unpopular in regards to this collection - i still think her debut was her strongest. it was very, very hard for me to find weak poems in that one, but in her second book, and this one, some of them just felt...unneccesary. i only really loved, loved two o...

    This book reminded me of a person that I know and how she felt and dealt with a man she was in an unhealthy relationship with. There is no way to rate or judge someone's life and what they went through but I was glad I got to read the emotions that went into the words in this book. Thi...
