REVIEW: The Witch Doesn't Burn In This One, Amanda Lovelace

Tuesday, 27 March 2018

The witch: supernaturally powerful, inscrutably independent, and now—indestructible. These moving, relatable poems encourage resilience and embolden women to take control of their own stories. Enemies try to judge, oppress, and marginalize her, but the witch doesn’t burn in this one.

Although I have some qualms over whether The Witch Doesn’t Burn in this One is actually poetry, I do not have any trouble in acknowledging how important this book will be for a lot of women living in 2018.
I mean, who even cares if it should be classed as poetry or tumblr prose when each and every one of Amanda Lovelace’s compositions are as resonant and impactful as the ones included in The Witch Doesn’t Burn in this One. In so few words, she is able to convey an incredible amount of emotion in regards to the content and topics covered and you simply cannot deny the importance of each subject matter.
Whether you regard it as poetry or simply a book of quotes, at only 208 pages I can see this being the perfect book for women everywhere, to throw in their bags and flip to a random page when they’re feeling alone - because within these pages, Amanda Lovelace is always there to tell them that we are strong and that we can all get through this together.
Honestly, The Witch Doesn’t Burn in this One hit me like a punch to the gut and now, I can finally understand why so many of my peers have fallen head over heels for the feminist voice that we so dearly needed.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
