The witch: supernaturally powerful, inscrutably independent, and now—indestructible. These moving, relatable poems encourage resilience and embolden women to take control of their own stories. Enemies try to judge, oppress, and marginalize her, but the witch doesn’t burn in this one.

Winner of the 2018 Goodreads Choice Awards

My thoughts:

Wow. This collection of poetry was powerful. I feel as though it is very timely to what we are facing in our political environment. I will say, some poems fell like they were very men hating and at times this kind of made me uncomfortable which is why I didn’t rate it as high. Amanda Lovelace has 2 other poetry books part of this “series” of women empowerment verse. I plan on reading her other works because I really did enjoy this one.
