Review: Breaking Your Glass Slippers is the first installment of You Are Your Own Fairytale. I was a fan of Amanda’s previous work so I was excited to hear about this new poetry collection. The concept of her poetry collection seemed intriguing. However when I read the actual material, I felt like this was similar to her poems in The Princess Saves Herself In This One. I was also a bit disappointed that the poetry collection wasn’t a retelling of Cinderella. The poems were nice and depicted female empowerment, but they didn’t have the depth I thought they would have. If you’re a fan of Amanda Lovelace’s poetry, you may like this collection.
