the mermaid's voice returns in this one
the mermaid's voice returns in this one | Amanda Lovelace, ladybookmad
74 posts | 67 read | 50 to read
The mermaid is known for her siren song, luring bedroom-eyed sailors to their demise. However, beneath these misguided myths are tales of escapism and healing, which Lovelace weaves throughout this empowering collection of poetry, taking you on a journey from the sea to the stars. They tried to silence her once and for all, but the mermaids voice returns in this one.

These poetry books are always so captivating to me, as a woman who has struggled and faced similar situations. I enjoy the poems. They are raw and sad, yet have a happy ending.

This was my least favorite in Lovelace's "women are some kind of magic" trilogy. The words fell flat for me and much of it felt repetitive. I did, however, think it was interesting that she brought in other poets to write about their survivor experiences.

It's says something when the best poem in this entire collection isn't even by the author. Skimming through the last bit of this to finally get it off my bedside table.

lauren.lerner I do not understand they Amanda Lovelace hype. I bought her first volume of poetry and was thoroughly underwhelmed. 2y

Think I had higher expectations for this final installment. Or maybe because this set goes through abuse like an escaping mermaid (I‘ve been lucky enough to not be able to relate) Amanda was able to make me feel some of her pain, though, in some of the deeper poems; especially the emotional abuse few. Again, I do love her poems, but they are on a range I don‘t quite understand. I loved a later one; show them what a mermaid/witch/queen can do.

I really enjoy Amanda Lovelace‘s poetry. The feelings evoked with so few words is amazing. Of her three books in this collection this wasn‘t my favorite, but it was good and I really enjoyed the inclusion of poems from other authors.

I‘m on a bit of an Amanda Lovelace kick. This was another great collection! And a cathartic ending to the Women Are Some Kind of Magic series. 🧜‍♀️

I like Amanda Lovelace. I enjoyed her second book and when I finished that I grabbed her first off my shelf and read that too. I thought, I really enjoy her writing. After finishing the mermaid‘s voice returns in this one I need to amend my statement to I love Amanda Lovelace‘s writing.

As a abuse survivor I can really relate to a lot of poems in here as well as her 3rd person approach.

I do love amanda lovelace's poetry so much and this is another beautiful entry into Women are Some Kind of Magic trilogy. By framing the trauma and damage that so many of us go through in such a raw but fantastical way, it makes it that much more visceral. I am so glad that I picked up that first book and fell in love with the words. I cannot wait to see what the next book will be.

I love amanda lovelace. I didn't anticipate the theme of this one but I loved it. It's the last of the "women are some kind of magic" series and rounds it out beautifully. This is full of poetry about finding your voice again and speaking out after trauma. So good.

@MaleficentBookDragon thank you so much sweetheart I absolutely love everything that you sent me. And I love that you sent me a stuffed book!!! That was a great touch 💖🤗💖 I also love the hanging mermaid. I will put her up in my library 🧜

This was between a pick and so-so for me. I've never really "got" poetry so I didn't read it unless I had to.
I enjoyed and connected with some of these poems. Others I just skimmed. I am glad I read this book though; moving out of my comfort zone.

2/5⭐

I'm so underwhelmed by this conclusion to the series... I absolutely ADORED the first two books, but I'm gutted that this one didn't do it for me at all. I wish I was able to love it, but it didn't really connect with me like the previous ones. I'm disappointed that I was unable to enjoy this one as much as the previous books, but it just didn't click for me.

This poem reminds of the Wayward Children's series by Seanan McGuire, which I love. I just finished In An Absent Dream. It is my favorite of the series so far, followed closely by Down Among the Sticks and Bones.

ChasingOm I just finished Sticks and Bones on audio. I love them too. 3y

If you liked “the princess saves herself in this one” then you‘ll dig the final installment in the some kind of magic series. This book also has a lot of guest poems from her friends. Lovelace was Good Reads Poet of the Year. 👸🏼❤️👍🏻
