2016 Goodreads Choice Award-winning poet Amanda Lovelace returns in the witch doesn't burn in this one — the bold second book in her "women are some kind of magic" series. The witch: supernaturally powerful, inscrutably independent, and now—indestructible.

    Picking up this poetry collection couldn't have come at a better time with having just read a book about powerful witches by Leslye Walton: The Price Guide to the Occult.I really took to heart Amanda Lovelace's The Princess Saves Herself in This One for its raw and honest take on love, loss, grief, and healing. Plus, the many feminist poems. So with this follow-up collection, I was keen on reconnecting with the author through her words.As the ...

    I liked how in “The Witch Doesn’t Burn in this One”, the author skilfully addressed some rather sensitive topics such as abuse, sexual assault, eating disorders, trauma, death, murder, violence, menstruation, etc. Here’s the tricky thing about fire:it stays soft even while it destroys everything in its path,but it’s to you to make sure that it doesn’t burn the good with the rot I also liked the messages she conveyed in her poems, not ...

    "bitch," he spits."witch," he sneers.& i say,"actually, i'm both."-reclaim's really hard to review poetry because it functions so differently than an actual fiction book but I've decided to just rate this on enjoyment. and I enjoyed this a lotAmanda Lovelace continues to write poetry that is personal, and raw, and honest. But I think this collection worked so much better than the first one (Which I also loved).The Witch Doesn't Burn...

  • Beatrice Masaluñga
    Thank you Andrews McMeel Publishing for proving an ARC in exchange for an honest review.After my disappointment with the princess saves herself in this one, I crossed my fingers I'll like this more. Amanda Lovelace's newest poetry collection centers on feminism. Topic wise, it's good but the poems were still empty, rundown sentences. Some poems are written differently but the thought was just the same. It's quite unimpressive. Do I feel empowered...

    Amanda is so damn talented and I love her collections of poems. WITCH is the sequel to the masterpiece that was PRINCESS, and though I enjoyed the first collection more, this is still a book that deserves all the praise & success.

    I was sent this book as an advanced copy by the publisher via NetGalley for reviewing purposes, but all opinions are my own. This was amazingly powerful and empowering. It was emotionally hard to read at times, like all good thought-prokoving literature is.Full disclosure, I still haven't read Lovelace's first poem collection fully, but I have read many of her poems (I follow her on twitter and she often RTs people sharing their favorite poems of...
  • Liv (Stories For Coffee)
    Amanda has managed to construct a breathtaking and awe-inspiring poetry collection that evoked emotions from me that I didn't realize were hidden in my heart. She crafts passion and anger together so well to create a feminist poetry collection that will raise spirits up and inspire readers in ways I cannot describe. I am always in awe of her work, and this collection is no different. It breaks down barriers and is drowning in various emotions tha...

    Do you even understand how excited I am to be reading this?! The dedication itself was simply amazing and I REALLY appreciate the fact that this poetry collection has a page dedicated to trigger warnings.This poetry collection is everything my feminist soul needed. It’s everything ever woman’s soul needed. It’s authentic, it’s raw, it’s the ugly truth told with beautiful words.It gave me strength, it made me feel powerful & understood &...

    4.5 stars I was sent this by Andrews McMeel Publishing in exchange for an honest review I will be discussing this more on my YouTube channel (Julia Sapphire) shortly! This was incredible, I am speechless and I am so excited for everyone to read this when it releases. “womendon't enduresimply becausewe can;no,women endurebecause we aren'tgiven any otherchoice.- they wanted us weak but forced us to be strong.”

    ⚠ Warning - High Probability of Unpopular Opinions Ahead ⚠I’ve read Amanda Lovelace’s the witch doesn’t burn in this one twice now. I wasn’t familiar with Amanda’s poetry and was intrigued so read it immediately after I downloaded it. I had strong contradictory feelings about it and wanted to know how I’d feel after it sat with me for a while and then reread it. So, here we are straight after the reread. My review may well feel l...

    5 Words: Witch, femininity, sisterhood, fire, solidarity.What did I feel when reading this book?Lots of things. A lot of anger, a lot of pride, a lot of power.I had goosebumps up my arms and down my legs. I wanted to scream and rage and burn things. But in a good way.I loved this collection. I loved the narrative behind each poem, how it told a story as you turned each page. The writing itself seemed to change as I progressed through the book, it...

  • Brittney Andrews (beabookworm)
    The Witch Doesn't Burn in this One is one helluva crafty collection that has a vast array of thought-provoking poems. While there were a few that I found myself rolling my eyes at, I found myself majority of the time flipping each page faster than the next because I enjoyed this work so much. Ms. Lovelace's ability to weave in sensitive topics along with humorous ones that don't deter from the overall impactful message that this book is trying to...
  • Samantha
    I enjoyed this read. I love to read poetry, especially before going to bed, and the issue with this poetry book and reading it before sleeping was that I went to bed feeling so empowered and strong. That being said, I recommend reading this at the commencement of your day, because it will surely make you feel more confident and powerful throughout your day. Some of the poems broke my heart at how accurate they were and how raw it was, and others ...

    THIS REVIEW IS ALSO ON MY BLOGR E V I E WWarning: this review will be really short, I just wanted to promote this collection of poetry because of how much it touched me.Reviewing a poetry collection is difficult. Like, extremely difficult. I’m not sure how to even describe how Amanda Lovelace’s poetry makes me feel. It brings out so many things I’ve kept hidden in myself. The poetry itself is raw. It is beautiful and it is personal. I under...

    Review also on my blog • Twitter • BookstagramI received an arc from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.The Witch Doesn't Burn In This One is a follow up to the author's, The Princess Saves Herself In This One. Like the previous poetry collection, it talks about misogyny, patriarchy, feminism, abuse, and other things relating to it. While the previous collection used the trope of women always being saved by men as a ...

    reading updates: I feel like I just got an entire TEDxTalk about loving myself and I’m not even mad. **I received this as an ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.**I read this book throughout the entire month of February when usually i'd devour it. I had to read it via my phone because the copy I was given wasn't suitable for kindle but I can tell you this now, it's definitely something I'd read in one sitting.I'm not a fan of...
  • Erin *Help I’m Reading and I Can’t Get Up*
    4 stars. "bitch," he spits."witch," he sneers.& i say,"actually, i'm both."-reclaim everything.The first book of poems from this author, The Princess Saves Herself in this One, was rather adolescent to me, in both style and substance. And, well, the first ~50 pages of this one are a bridge from that first book-- still a bit clunky, a bit juvenile.But then you hit page 77. And everything from there out is a new author, someone ablaze and fresh an...

    More detailed review pending! I have a LOT of feelings.
  • Trista Mateer
    In this liberating collection of poetry and prose, Amanda Lovelace taps into the suffering of our mothers and spares us none of the gory details. Writing from a place of anger and tenderness, she expertly crafts a coven you’ll want to be a part of. Lovelace’s The Witch Doesn’t Burn In This One is a self-love potion for the women in your life.
