the story of a princess turned damsel turned queen

"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.

my thoughts

yet, another amazing poetry book i've read this year. but if i had to choose a favorite, this one would have to be it, hands-down. the princess saves herself in this one is so rustic and real, i find it hard not to love. lovelace has truly outdone herself, and has got me heels-over-head. i loved lovelace's wording and writing style. it captured me and swept me away, you can tell that she meant every word she wrote. another element that i liked was the page layout, making the words do the action or scene being portrayed in the poems. it just made for a fun reading experience. 

i have never felt more assured and empowered from a book before. lovelace reassured me that life will have its complications, and that it's up to me to let them get in my way. lovelace teaches you that anything is possible when you surround yourself by the people you love, and rethink all of what society has told you to be. i truly hope that everyone gets the opportunity to read this and learn how to not just view the world differently, but view themselves differently. you deserve happiness people, go out and find it.

Full of empowerment, character, and passion, the princess saves herself in this one is a read you don't want to miss. lovelace has reminded me that i'm strong enough to save myself, and i don't need someone else to come save me. her writing style and creative word choice will have readers coming back for years and years to come, and i can't wait to see what she comes up with next.
