Title: The Princess Saves Herself in this One

Author: Amanda Lovelace

Publisher: Self-Published

Publication Date: April 23rd 2016

Format: Review Copy

Genre: Feminism, Poetry

My Rating: 3.5/5 star

This book isn’t

a collection of poetry.

It is has the format,

that is similar to this

book review I am typing.


However, it does tackle

lots of essential topics,

like Mental illness, 


and eating disorders.


Those weren’t added,

to simply make 

the book “TRENDY”.

They were actually

 created for a reason.


Amanda poured

her soul into this,

with pretty words

and vivid descriptions.


This book wasn’t

what I had in mind.

I was both

disappointed, yet

very amused.



About the Author:

Growing up a word-devourer & avid fairy tale lover, it was only natural that amanda lovelace began writing books of her own, & so she did. when she isn’t reading or writing, she can be found waiting for pumpkin spice coffee to come back into season & binge-watching gilmore girls.

(before you ask: team jess all the way.) the lifelong poetess & storyteller currently lives in new jersey with her fiancé, their two moody cats, & a combined book collection so large it will soon need its own home. as of 2016, she is working towards her b.a. in english literature with a minor in sociology. the princess saves herself in this one, originally published in 2016, is her debut poetry collection.

Her official website is

You can also find her as ladybookmad on twitter, instagram, & tumblr. (she hasn’t quite figured out snapchat yet.)
