Book Review: The Princess Saves Herself In This One by Amanda Lovelace

517bf26ijpl“How could words can be so powerful and enchanting?” My first thought after reading the book. There are a significant power and advocacy that Amanda Lovelace is trying to emphasize on making poetries. It was vast. There’s an impact. She can make simple words, into magnificent phrases, that has a double meaning behind bars.

This is the power of literature. From fiction books to poetry to contemporaries. It teaches us a lot of things. With Amanda Lovelace’s poetry book, the princess saves herself in this one — gave us a gripping, thrilling and exciting poetry that a person couldn’t think to ask. It holds you dearly in the heart and crushes you with the full realization of her message. Wonderfully written and strucking lines that can make her readers stare at nothingness because of the surreality of her poems.
One way or the another, I couldn’t question this book as to why it became the Goodreads Choice Awards of 2016 in Poetry because it deserves its place. And for someone who loves spoken words, this book will slay your belief and will make you enter the true form of the society – ugly and beautiful – and you couldn’t decide which one do you wish to see because either way, it is whether you wish to see the painful truth or the pleasing lie.
