Amanda Lovelace’s debut poetry collection, The Princess Saves Herself in This One, is a story in atypical styled poems. An avid fairy tale lover and poetess who has experienced life’s ups and downs, Lovelace draws the reader in with poems that appeal to the imagination and emotions of book lovers. The book is broken into four parts; the princess, the damsel, the queen, and you.

This collection of poems is a raw unfiltered look into Lovelace’s life. There is sadness to the collection; both in the damsel whose knight is rather tarnished, and her mother the queen whose unkind existence terminates without resolution. There is a hopeful beauty in the way the princess disappears into her imagined tower of books, and the you that has the strength to reinvent herself after life has taken her to the depths of self and destruction.

— Katelyn Derderian
