    This is the third of Amanda Lovelace's anthologies, that I have read, and I am convinced that she is incapable of ever penning a badly phrased or unstructured thought. Like her other two collections, there is an extraordinary amount of personal pain relayed to the reader as this opens ...

    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...

    "i?m the fairy tale everyone forgot about because the lesson wasn?t pure or hopeful enough. in this one, there are plenty of times when red becomes a little bit wolf after the beast comes for her with his snapping jaw too hard, too often." Not the best I?ve read from lovelace,...

    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...

    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. ...

    So good to be true! My absolute Amanda Lovelace favorite! I totally love this one much much more than I ever should! Not fair to compare but I thought there wouldn't be a book by Amanda Lovelace that would be better than her 'The Princess Saves Herself In This One'. But...how wr...

    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...

    i feel terrible giving this a low rating. while i understand and can sympathize with "this girl" in this book, i also can't help but feel angry and irritated at her for sticking to "this man" long enough until she thinks she's "the monster" and the one to blame instead. no man is worth...

    Decided to give another book of poetry a go, from someone whose poems I have enjoyed in the past. Whilst I preferred this collection over Rupi's Milk and Honey, it still didn't feel like poetry to me. It felt like a story. I enjoyed that the poems seemed to go chronologically, as it he...

    To Make Monsters Out of Girls is Amanda's most vulnerable, heartbreaking, and beautiful collection to date. It takes the reader on a journey through a toxic relationship and her efforts to move on from it. It helped me to understand why people stayed in toxic relationships and how it i...

    This book made me stop and think about how other peoples lives could be like. What other people have gone through or could go through. It also gave me more inspiration for what types of topics I could write in my poems in the future. I love poetry a lot so this book I loved. ...

    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. ...

    So good to be true! My absolute Amanda Lovelace favorite! I totally love this one much much more than I ever should! Not fair to compare but I thought there wouldn't be a book by Amanda Lovelace that would be better than her 'The Princess Saves Herself In This One'. But...how wr...

    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...

    i feel terrible giving this a low rating. while i understand and can sympathize with "this girl" in this book, i also can't help but feel angry and irritated at her for sticking to "this man" long enough until she thinks she's "the monster" and the one to blame instead. no man is worth...

    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...

    Decided to give another book of poetry a go, from someone whose poems I have enjoyed in the past. Whilst I preferred this collection over Rupi's Milk and Honey, it still didn't feel like poetry to me. It felt like a story. I enjoyed that the poems seemed to go chronologically, as it he...

    To Make Monsters Out of Girls is Amanda's most vulnerable, heartbreaking, and beautiful collection to date. It takes the reader on a journey through a toxic relationship and her efforts to move on from it. It helped me to understand why people stayed in toxic relationships and how it i...

    This is the third of Amanda Lovelace's anthologies, that I have read, and I am convinced that she is incapable of ever penning a badly phrased or unstructured thought. Like her other two collections, there is an extraordinary amount of personal pain relayed to the reader as this opens ...

    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...

    This book made me stop and think about how other peoples lives could be like. What other people have gone through or could go through. It also gave me more inspiration for what types of topics I could write in my poems in the future. I love poetry a lot so this book I loved. ...

    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 ...

    This is the third of Amanda Lovelace's anthologies, that I have read, and I am convinced that she is incapable of ever penning a badly phrased or unstructured thought. Like her other two collections, there is an extraordinary amount of personal pain relayed to the reader as this opens ...

    So good to be true! My absolute Amanda Lovelace favorite! I totally love this one much much more than I ever should! Not fair to compare but I thought there wouldn't be a book by Amanda Lovelace that would be better than her 'The Princess Saves Herself In This One'. But...how wr...

    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. ...

    So good to be true! My absolute Amanda Lovelace favorite! I totally love this one much much more than I ever should! Not fair to compare but I thought there wouldn't be a book by Amanda Lovelace that would be better than her 'The Princess Saves Herself In This One'. But...how wr...

    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...

    i feel terrible giving this a low rating. while i understand and can sympathize with "this girl" in this book, i also can't help but feel angry and irritated at her for sticking to "this man" long enough until she thinks she's "the monster" and the one to blame instead. no man is worth...

    A powerful and moving poem. 5/5 ...

    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...

    Decided to give another book of poetry a go, from someone whose poems I have enjoyed in the past. Whilst I preferred this collection over Rupi's Milk and Honey, it still didn't feel like poetry to me. It felt like a story. I enjoyed that the poems seemed to go chronologically, as it he...

    To Make Monsters Out of Girls is Amanda's most vulnerable, heartbreaking, and beautiful collection to date. It takes the reader on a journey through a toxic relationship and her efforts to move on from it. It helped me to understand why people stayed in toxic relationships and how it i...

    This book made me stop and think about how other peoples lives could be like. What other people have gone through or could go through. It also gave me more inspiration for what types of topics I could write in my poems in the future. I love poetry a lot so this book I loved. ...

    i.... failed to relate with this one. maybe it's just me though. ...

    Third book that I read from her and it?s amazing. Usually I?m quite confused with the new (modern?) poetry but with her every single page is a wonder. Can?t wait for 2019 to see the continuation of her works! ...

    My review available here: https://alittlefoolreads.wordpress.co... ...

    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 ...

    a very beautiful book about healing ? ...

    This is the third of Amanda Lovelace's anthologies, that I have read, and I am convinced that she is incapable of ever penning a badly phrased or unstructured thought. Like her other two collections, there is an extraordinary amount of personal pain relayed to the reader as this opens ...

    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...

    the monster made himself another monster because he couldn?t stand being a monster all by himself. - & yet that weight grows heavier still. This collection of poems is about being in a relationship with someone you know is bad for you and realising you deserve better...

    "i?m the fairy tale everyone forgot about because the lesson wasn?t pure or hopeful enough. in this one, there are plenty of times when red becomes a little bit wolf after the beast comes for her with his snapping jaw too hard, too often." Not the best I?ve read from lovelace,...

    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...

    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...

    I feel weird rating a book of personal poetry because I feel like I?m 3 starring this girl?s love life... But I didn?t connect to this collection as much as her others, though I still tabbed and bookmarked a few stellar poems. ...

    I loved the illustrations and the ending but overall was the collection average. ...
