My Rating: 4/5 Stars
Poetry isn’t my first reading choice, but if there’s one poet that I am ALWAYS ready for a new collection from, it’s amanda lovelace! I have loved so much of her collections & series, from break your glass slippers to shine your icy crown to her latest collection, unlock your storybook heart.
The third & final installment in the You Are Your Own Fairy Tale series, this beauty & the beast inspired poetry collection screams bookishness. This is one of my favorite poetry collections from amanda lovelace. I love using page tabs to mark my favorite poems and nearly all my tabbed pages in this collection had to do with books & reading. My favorite poem was hands-down “her book say.” Like amanda lovelace’s other collections, this collection explores family relationships (tw death of a loved one), romance, sexuality, self-love, and relationships. unlock your storybook heart especially focused on self-love & care and making the most out of life & love.
Overall, I enjoyed unlock your storybook heart for its bookishness, and as always, I look forward to what amanda lovelace publishes next.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for review. By no means did receiving this ARC affect my thoughts or opinions.
