    I first read this when Amanda published it on Wattpad a couple of years ago as a thank you to her readers for supporting her debut, the princess saves herself in this one, and even then, I knew this was something special. Now, it has been revised, expanded upon, and given a new life wi...

    ACTUAL RATING: 4.5 STARS If you?re going through a break up or have been through one, you must read this collection of poetry. This collection has the power to help people heal from the wounds others have caused, and it also can nudge others to stand up for themselves when they ar...

    3.5 ...

    The pain, the agony, they?re all there, on each page, ready to be read, by the right person. You. Read when you?re ready to move on. Read when you?re ready to accept you?re toxic too. Read when you need to know you?re not alone. Thank you again Amanda. ...

    This book reminded me of a person that I know and how she felt and dealt with a man she was in an unhealthy relationship with. There is no way to rate or judge someone's life and what they went through but I was glad I got to read the emotions that went into the words in this book. Thi...

    9/24/18: So I reread the collection and took my time with it, finding that I enjoy it more than I did the first time around. However I still wished there was more. The title, To Make Monsters Out of Girls, made me think it would be a twisted fairytale. Like Red Riding Hood being taken...

    Amanda, please, stop milking the dead cow! This is the third book and I am starting to feel bad for your husband. Can you please start talking about how the princess saved herself and moved on for good? Because it does feel like the princess keeps talking about self awareness but made...

    I think this just became my favorite poetry collection by Amanda. Her writing has been extremely important to me, ever since she self-published Princess! This one just really, really spoke to me though. It was raw and hard-hitting. I felt each and every word hit me. There isn't ...

    as usual like all of amanda lovelace's work this book was fantastic. worth the wait and worth the read. (team jess!!!). so beautiful and so deep and so dark and so enlightening and so riveting. ...

    Amanda just has a way with words that just simply hit home in a way I don't think anyone, but her would truly understand. She truly captures the feelings of loneliness, worthlessness, and depression better then anyone I have ever seen. I def want everything she has ever/ will ever writ...

    I first read this when Amanda published it on Wattpad a couple of years ago as a thank you to her readers for supporting her debut, the princess saves herself in this one, and even then, I knew this was something special. Now, it has been revised, expanded upon, and given a new life wi...

    ACTUAL RATING: 4.5 STARS If you?re going through a break up or have been through one, you must read this collection of poetry. This collection has the power to help people heal from the wounds others have caused, and it also can nudge others to stand up for themselves when they ar...

    The pain, the agony, they?re all there, on each page, ready to be read, by the right person. You. Read when you?re ready to move on. Read when you?re ready to accept you?re toxic too. Read when you need to know you?re not alone. Thank you again Amanda. ...

    This book reminded me of a person that I know and how she felt and dealt with a man she was in an unhealthy relationship with. There is no way to rate or judge someone's life and what they went through but I was glad I got to read the emotions that went into the words in this book. Thi...

    9/24/18: So I reread the collection and took my time with it, finding that I enjoy it more than I did the first time around. However I still wished there was more. The title, To Make Monsters Out of Girls, made me think it would be a twisted fairytale. Like Red Riding Hood being taken...

    Amanda, please, stop milking the dead cow! This is the third book and I am starting to feel bad for your husband. Can you please start talking about how the princess saved herself and moved on for good? Because it does feel like the princess keeps talking about self awareness but made...

    'to make monsters out of girls' is a darkly whimsical narrative of a person who, despite past abuse, is able to cultivate a self-love that blooms and welcome in a romantic-love that nurtures. she learns that there is intimacy in the world that heals instead of destroys, and conveys the...

    Rating: 4.5 stars This time, I was a little let down by Amanda's poems in this collection. Mind you I'll give her credit for publishing her poems that were once on Wattpad, so it's understandable if I don't like her older stuff. One of my favourite sections was sun-heart, where she ...

    4.5* , this wasn?t as moving for me as some of her other books. But something tells me that I?m the future I will need this book and it will perhaps help me save myself (just a prediction). Amanda is so talented and even tho like I said, this didn?t move me the same as her other ...
