To Make Monsters Out of Girls is the first book in The Things That H(a)unt duology by the amazing poetress Amanda Lovelace.
While I thoroughly enjoyed The Witch Doesn’t Burn In This One, and mostly enjoyed the Women Are Some Kind of Magic series, To Make Monsters Out of Girls wasn’t really my cup of tea. Or coffee. Some of the poems were relatable, I’ve been through some bad breakups myself, they didn’t really connect with me deeply. I appreciate them for the wonderful works that they are, but they’re just not for me right now.
Maybe one day they will be for me, but until then, they are just some great poems.
Hopefully for you fellow reader, they will speak to you in a way that they haven’t for me. And I wish for you lots of love, light, peace and healing.
