I absolutely love love love this book... so much that I had to take pictures for myself of a few of the poems because they were completely relatable to what I've been through. Loved the illustrations throughout the book. I definitely pleasantly surprised because I thought the book was about monsters but actually about going through love and the messy breakup of it. A must read for anyone who is going through a break up or divorce.
5 stars

I love amanda lovelace! This is one of two books a new collection called "the things that h(a)unt" duology. I love the concept and the poems in this collection. I had mixed feelings about delivery on the concept. I would have liked things to get a little more evil, truth be told. Overall, it's a good collection and always read amanda lovelace!

This is on the lower end of the pick scale for me; Lovelace is working through the abusive relationship she got out of and addressed in previous books as well. The poems here didn‘t have as powerful an impact on me as the ones in her other collections. The art work was nice.

I couldn‘t really connect with this poetry collection like I have Lovelace‘s other ones. Princess is my favorite out of all poetry books and this one mainly focuses on one relationship and all the poems ran together. It‘s good, the illustrations are great and the outside is beautiful I just wasn‘t thrilled with the inside.
