- get up, you're nobody's doormat.
This book and I did not mesh. I'm really sorry to say that, since I thoroughly enjoyed the first one. However, it was not the case with this one. It seemed like this second one was sloppily thrown together, the ideas weren't fully formed, and it was just trying to mooch off the success of the first book.
This book promoted feminism in such a way that I cannot get behind. I will be among the first people to fight for equality for women, but this book took it too far. It was basically saying to te ...more
where do i begin? this book has so much fire in it that i cannot contain myself. amanda does it again!! the witch doesn't burn in this one is the fiery book all women (girls included) should read. it is the book that we need right now. witch will empower you and welcome you back home with open arms. i love the witch theme but most of all i loved the theme of women uniting and standing together. a woman writing about women experiences is how it's done. read this, you will not regret it.
EDIT: 22/3/18: I was informed that the author now identifies as non-binary and trans. However, the collection still contains the following problems. One experience of an identity should not erase others.
I'm extremely disappointed in this poetry collection for numerous reasons:
1. I didn't believe for one second about Lovelace's intersectional allyship. It felt performative and for commercial purposes.
2. Poems were ciscentric.
3. Misandry = misogyny. They are basically the same concepts except in ...more
empowering as fuck 🔥
I went into this knowing it's not my favorite style of poetry, which is why i'm withholding a rating. As always, a great message for those first delving into poetry/feminism, but for some reason I just can't vibe with each poem's delivery. I will say that I enjoyed book one more than this one.
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 became stronger and more mature.
This was excellen ...more
Well friends, it’s safe to say, this one just didn’t do it for me. Poetry seems to be something that is very hit or miss with me. It is also is the genre that I find myself most intimidated by, however, I’ve really been trying to broaden my horizons in terms of what I’ll read. Fantasy, YA, romance, mysteries, and contemporaries are all fun to read, but sometimes I want something more thought provoking and inspiring. So needless to say, I was rather excited to start this one because poems about w ...more
