& wishing
ourselves into
the pages of
our favorite
fairy tales.”

My thoughts: I have never read a collection of poetry before and I am so glad that The Princess Saves Herself in This One was the first one I picked up. This poetry book was split into four parts: the princess, the damsel, the queen, and you which showed different parts of the author’s life, taking you on a journey through works of poetry that will touch your heart. This book will grip your attention and keep you wanting more of Lovelace’s beautifully constructed words that are strung together flawlessly in different forms of poems.
