“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.”

a poetry collection divided into four different parts: the princess, the damsel, the queen, & you. the princess, the damsel, & the queen piece together the life of the author in three stages, while you serves as a note to the reader & all of humankind. explores life & all of its love, loss, grief, healing, empowerment, & inspirations.

A month or two ago, in the book community, there was a an event that triggered a huge discussion about diversity. When that happened, I wanted to make myself read more diverse books. I heard about this book and instantly fell in love with it. Even if you don’t think poetry is for you, you will still love this book. It’s hard to review a book like this because of how personal it is. There were many poems in here that I could (sadly) relate to. Honestly, all I can say is you need to read this book. No matter who you are, you need to read this book. It’s been almost a month since I read this book, and I still can’t string together words to describe how much I love this poetry book.

So, what do I rate The Princess Saves Herself in This One

★★★★★/5
