RATING *4/5 STARS*
I received this e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.
I was extremely excited when I was approved for this book! I loved the princess saves herself in this one, so I was really looking forward to this book!
I wasn’t disappointed. the witch doesn’t burn in this one focuses more on the inequality between men and women and the struggle that women face. As a result, a lot of these poems have an angry feeling about them. My favorite part of the book was the last two sections. These sections moved me.
As a disclaimer, I think the version I read is a little different from the version that will be published. If I remember reading correctly, one of the poems in the e-ARC was removed and replaced with another one for the published version.
If you enjoyed reading Amanda Lovelace’s first book, you will enjoy reading the witch doesn’t burn in this one. I’m really looking forward to purchasing it once it’s published. Until the next review!
