I told myself that I would read this poetry book very slowly, even if it meant reading only one poem a day, a week, or however long in order for me to take the time to fully appreciate the words. Obviously that didn't happen when I finished it no more than 20 minutes later from starting it. XD It wasn't a very long poetry book to begin with but I didn't expect to devour The Princess Saves Herself in this One in less than 30 mins! :P

I was just instantly hooked and couldn't put it down. Some of th

The Princess Saves Herself in This One was a fairly emotional read for me. This poetry collection is divided into four different parts: the princess, the damsel, the queen, & you. And there were a lot of parts that really hit home (especially the princess), so much so that I had to put the collection down for a minute and think.

I was expecting I would never read this, and if I did, I really wouldn’t like it. In my head, it fell under the same category as Milk and Honey, which I really, really did not enjoy because to me it lacked a lot of depth, creative writing, and—well, poeticness. I started this hesitantly, but I

I’ve seen many people write The Princess Saves Herself in this One off as not being “real” poetry, or “Tumblr Poetry” (used as a derogatory term)—but as someone who’s extremely critical when it comes to reading material, I actually liked it, and I’m surprised that it hasn’t quite reached the critical acclaim Rupi K

"Once upon a time, the princess rose from the ashes her dragon lovers made of her & crowned herself the mother-fucking queen of herself."

I picked up this book immediately on my Kindle app after reading the lovely Mayflower's review.

I really enjoyed this!

I adored the use of imagery, especially the idea of slaying the "dragons" in your life that do not serve your self-interest.

I also very much appreciated the clarification on what qualifies as abuse. As someone who endured an emotionally abus

The Princess Saves Herself in this One

So let me begin by saying that poetry is not for me. I have read poetry as a student both at school and university. I am not into it no matter how hard I try. I read this one in a terminal while waiting for my flight to arrive. Due to lack of free time, I have learnt to read quite fast so I read this one pretty fast, too. Perhaps a mistake. Personally, I was left with emotions of misery and nothing more.

First of all, The Princess Saves Herself In This One co

Or maybe it does these days. Between the highly praised Lang Leav and this latest Goodreads Choice finalist, I guess these emo tumblr quotes are the modern version of poetry.

Call me old school, but I kind of expect something more. Some of these sentences are nice, sure, and some of them tickle the inner emo that lives inside us all, the one that occasionally makes us stay up late sobbing over Elliott Smith songs (oh wait, that's just me?) but co
