    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 up the details of the poet's own past. It takes such bravery to be as raw and honest as Lovelace is and every reader has much to gain from this soul laid bare in literary form.

    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 with accompanying artwork, and I'm so very excited to see it put back out in the world. This is definitely a contender for my personal favorite Amanda Lovelace book, and I can't wait to see how she follows it up!

    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 are treated wrongly. I’m so proud of Amanda for speaking out about her past and her relationships, and I know it will help people feel seen in ways they have never felt before.

    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 and finding that someone who will help you grow. These poems were all so beautiful. The third part of poetry in this book is called sun-heart, it is about Amanda's spouse Cyrus Parker who is the author of DROPKICKromance.

    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 the new prince do all the heavy lifting while she thinks about her ex. Dear girl, please stop waiting for men to make you happy and change therapist. By this point I would be interested more in your grocery shopping t Amanda, please, stop milking the dead cow!

    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.

    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. This book is a poetry book about growing past an unhealthy relationship and moving on, finding yourself again. I highly recommend this book to everyone.

    "either take everything i have or drop it all & walk away. both are no longer an option i'm allowing. you see, it's not exactly in this girl's nature to be torn in two." 2,5 stars. I feel pretty horrible for rating a poetry book about an abusive relationship less than 3 stars but these just didn't touch me at all. I liked maybe 3 of the 150 poems and that's just not enough for me. Just not my cup of tea.

    sometimes no closure tells us more than the closure ever could. - some people were never worth your words. I can relate

    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 in by the Big Bad Wolf and seeing her grow from a frail, delicate girl into a fierce huntress with claws and teeth. But it was still good.

Original review-9/18/18 Am I the only person who has to think carefully instead of immediately slapping on an automatic 5-stars for the newest work done by your favs? I had to think carefully. I love Amanda Lovelace. She is one of my favorite modern poets, and considering the fact I usually don't care much for poetry, that says plenty but I love hers. But this one....I feel like I was so enchanted and in love with the 1st book, I will forever be comparing every book afterwards to this one. I love this concept she had. Monsters, twisted love, how twisted love turns girls into monstrous things. Only the concept I had envisioned was much different than the one she wrote. I still enjoyed the collection. There were some I didn't really care for or felt undone, but most of them I did like. And then there were some I was so taken back (in the best way). But I wished there was more. Like we saw more darkness with the monster girl. See her teeth grow into fangs, her nails into claws

    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!

    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 much more I can say about her writing that I haven't already said in my reviews of her other poetry collections. Just go read them- all of them. You won't regret it.

    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 write! I love her!

    i think my opinion is somewhat unpopular in regards to this collection - i still think her debut was her strongest. it was very, very hard for me to find weak poems in that one, but in her second book, and this one, some of them just felt...unneccesary. i only really loved, loved two of them (which means i bothered enough to highlight the titles and not just go "hmm, that's good" and move on. so i think it was somewhat disappointing. i think it helped her a lot to get these out, but since i didn i think my opinion is somewhat unpopular in regards to this collection - i still think her debut was her strongest. it was very, very hard for me to find weak poems in that one, but in her second book, and this one, some of them just felt...unneccesary. i only really loved, loved two of them (which means i bothered enough to highlight the titles and not just go "hmm, that's good" and move on. so i think it was somewhat disappointing. i think it helped her a lot to get these out, but since i didn't go through anything like this, i didn't really feel a lot. i feel empathetic for her, but these didn't have an impact on me, you know? that's what i want from my poetry. i will keep reading anything she puts out, though. i can guarantee i will love at least one or two, and those one or two are always worth the read.

    A collection of beautiful, raw poems that cover the themes of toxicity (of the self and others) and the healing that comes after. The author’s personal experiences are wonderfully intertwined with metaphors of various fairytale monsters.

    “Darling, you are worthy.” This is Amanda’s newest poetry collection, and I swear her writing just keeps getting better. This book is about moving on from unhealthy relationships and healing. Her words are beautiful and so powerful. I think this is my favourite if her books.
