The Witch Doesn't Burn in This One [REVIEW]

  • Paperback
  • 208 pages

my rating: ★★★★½ / ★★★★★ (4.5/5 stars)

The witch: supernaturally powerful, inscrutably independent, and now—indestructible. These moving, relatable poems encourage resilience and embolden women to take control of their own stories. Enemies try to judge, oppress, and marginalize her, but the witch doesn’t burn in this one.❞

                                                          mini review

**I received this as an ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.**

I read this book throughout the entire month of February when usually i’d devour it. I had to read it via my phone because the copy I was given wasn’t suitable for kindle but I can tell you this now, it’s definitely something I’d read in one sitting.

I’m not a fan of modern poetry collections for reasons I’ve explained in my reviews of them but I happen to love these. This book is so finely put together in a way that every poem makes sense and completely connects to the theme which in this case, is definitely feminism and loving yourself. Feminism and poetry were just meant to be because I bookmarked almost half of this book. Although some of the poems are simple, they hold so much value and as a reader, I love that. Compared to this last book, I ended up enjoying this one even more because it seems like the author/poet has expanded her work into something more creative and in-depth. It was incredibly inspiring and overall the most wonderful reading experience.
I’m also thrilled this is a series of some sort? I can’t wait to read the next one!
