    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 can write poetry too but i prefer to write book reviews so i have done a poetical review here goes this book is not poetry nor is this review poetical i have just decided to bash my enter key because for some reason people will like ...

    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 ...

    "when i had no friends i reached inside my beloved books & sculpted some out of 12 pt times new roman -& it was almost good enough" I've been eyeing this book for quite a while now. I saw it on GR and Instagram and tumblr - so often, that I finally made the decisi...

    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'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...

    I've seen a lot of reviews debating whether this is poetry or "tumblr spacing" but I think that's ignoring the main point of how powerful some of these poems really are. Amanda completely put herself out there in a totally vulnerable way and the result is a really raw, emotional collec...

    This was such an empowering collection of poems. It was brutal, honest and deeply personal. ...

    scattering words on different lines is not poetry! ...

    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...

    Still loved it the second time around. I have no words. This was unbelievable. I'll write a proper review once my heart settles down. ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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'm not criticizing, belittling or making fun of what the author has gone through by any means, it's just pure personal opinion of a book whose title I found to be intriguing. I only read this book because it won the Goodreads award for Poetry, and honestly I wanted to know why, a...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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 can write poetry too but i prefer to write book reviews so i have done a poetical review here goes this book is not poetry nor is this review poetical i have just decided to bash my enter key because for some reason people will like ...

    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 ...

    "when i had no friends i reached inside my beloved books & sculpted some out of 12 pt times new roman -& it was almost good enough" I've been eyeing this book for quite a while now. I saw it on GR and Instagram and tumblr - so often, that I finally made the decisi...

    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'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...

    I've seen a lot of reviews debating whether this is poetry or "tumblr spacing" but I think that's ignoring the main point of how powerful some of these poems really are. Amanda completely put herself out there in a totally vulnerable way and the result is a really raw, emotional collec...

    This was such an empowering collection of poems. It was brutal, honest and deeply personal. ...

    scattering words on different lines is not poetry! ...

    ?the pain did not make me a better person. it did not teach me not to take anything for granted. it did not teach me anything except how to be afraid to love anyone.? WOW. TW: Abuse, self harm, eating disorders, suicide I was expecting I would never read this,...

    2,5 stars. Hmm... ...

    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? ...

    This Got Annoying ...

    ? 3 1/2 stars The dedication. :?) for the boy who lived. thank you for inspiring me to be the girl who survived. you may have a lightning bolt to show for it, but my body is a lightning storm. ? I?ve seen many people write The Princess Saves Herself in this One...

    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...

    "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...

    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...

    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'm not criticizing, belittling or making fun of what the author has gone through by any means, it's just pure personal opinion of a book whose title I found to be intriguing. I only read this book because it won the Goodreads award for Poetry, and honestly I wanted to know why, a...

    "The princess jumped from the tower & she learned that she could fly all along. - she never needed those wings What a beautiful book holding beautiful and powerful words. Some I could relate to and hit close to home. Truly beautiful. ...

    Whenever I've have ratings less than 3 in GR. I dont express much in my review ! It was just like that. ...

    To be perfectly honest, I only checked out this poetry collection because it won the Goodreads Choice awards (although the title it pretty great as well!). And I think I might be too old for this book. I am fairly sure I would have loved this collection of auto-biographical poems at 15...

    *ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review, thanks again* - 1.5 stars - For me this felt more like creative writing than poetry. The author wrote like t h i s and this and then like this, which felt pointless after a while. But, jokes and personal pr...

    The Princess Saves Herself in this One So let me begin by saying that poetry is not for me. I have read poetry as a student both at school and university. I am not into it no matter how hard I try. I read this one in a terminal while waiting for my flight to arrive. Due to lack of f...
