MEDIA REVIEWS
"It blends fairy tale lore with real-life musings for a beautiful result." (Lindsay E. Mack, Romper)
"As a whole, the collection acts as a tribute to all women who have ever needed a boost of empowerment and inspiration." (Madison Breaux, V Magazine)
"...Amanda Lovelace dives into the topics of modern feminism and empowerment...Read if you've ever thought about love, loss, who you are, and what you want. (So...all of us.)" (Abigail Yonker, The Everygirl)
"This is the book to read if you are on the path to writing your own ending and finding yourself, even when the road to accomplishment is rocky." (Dominique Etzel, Alloy)
"Similar in style-written in straightforward and uncomplicated verse, and content-grappling with themes of female power, love and loss, failure and redemption, pain and healing, poet Amanda Lovelace's The Princess Saves Herself in this One is similar to Kaur's Milk and Honey in another way as well: both books were self-published before going completely viral among readers." (E. CE Miller, Bustle)
"The perfect poetry opener for any fairytale lover and feminist..." (Kerri Jarema, Bustle)
"15 Books You'll Want To Read Over And Over Again" (Zoraida CA(3)rdova, Bustle)
"18 Literary Quotes Every Feminist Needs to Read Right Now"
#5 "the only thing / required / to be / a woman / is to / identify as one. / - period, end of story."

(E. CE Miller, Bustle)
"14 New Books You Definitely Need to Have on Your Radar in February [2017]" (Ryan Roschke, PopSugar)
