Amanda Lovelace Two Poem Books

Hello, being this my first review in my blog please have in mind that this are only my opinions. So as you could see the books I’m going to review for you are from Amanda Lovelace. Her books contain poems and since April is poetry month I decided to read them. Here are the books:

(My Rating 3.5🌟🌟🌟)

And

(Rating 3.3 🌟🌟🌟)

As a side note I’m no professional poet I really do not know the structure of how poems are made. But as a reader my opinion count to how I interrupted them. So let’s start with the princess save herself in this one.

In this books I read alot of resentful, anger, fear, romance, judgment and so many things. Which was actually interesting, it seems like I’m reading alot about personal stuff of the author. Alot of feminism I cannot say if its good feminism or the one that people hates so much. But I see her takes on what she is trying to say especially alot in the witch doesn’t burn in this one. While the first poem book she seems more reserve in her feminist views, although there were alot of good ones in the first book. Both book express almost the same thing about women and there struggles with the modern views and restriction women have in this world. Its clear that the writer is going towards women and part I like this about the books. The only thing that I questioned was the implications that men in this poems where the evil ones. Comparing men to dragons in the first book and men holding matches in the second book. Which in part the author is implying the power men had in women but I wanted to see less of that and maybe a feminine side of men which it will make the books more dramatic. Making it less more feminist then the type of feminism that people hates so much. But like I said before I really dont know the intention of the author I’m just interpeting my thoughts about the books. So looking back and closely the author compares fire with men, showing the strength that men have and how they have an easy hold on women in this society. Its a good implication in part on what men have and using fire as a synonym made sense. For example, fire in my opinion is consider to be strong, has a hold on the object it’s being light up. Meaning “Fire” for the author is an example to how men are. In conclusion this two books has good poems but I will not say their poem their more of entries in a journal showing her opinion of certain topics in this world that are hard to talk about. Both books are three stars for me, I wish alot from both but more in the first book. Their good books with topics that are to hard to get into especially if your not interest in the topics the author is expressing. Recommend to women who feel oppress and need to feel like they’re others that feel the same way. Some poems have strong topics of suicide, abuse,rape and anorexia/bulimia if this topics are hard for anyone I recommend to skip it.

Thank you for reading my review of this books. Be free to express your opinions in the comment section below. Also if my writing is not coherent please be free too also tell me. I will love to have some help. But please be technical and not personal. See you next time.

My Top 10 favorite Marvel characters

In honor and release of the new Avengers: Infinity War movie and since I do not only read YA/Literature books Im also interested in comics and manga. I’m going to composites a list of my favorite character of Marvel. With this we could bond and become friends. πŸ˜†

1. Captain America

This one of my favorite original Avenger character. Being a honest but yet defined character. A leader that in the MCU has made him a really memorable character with views that make you like him more. Comic wise he is a tough and strict character with morals that hard to follow but still a character I will follow in my heart.

2. Ghost rider

This character I like because of his powers to punish those who done bad deeds. A character one could like because what he does, even if he is not much of a hero he is in my eyes.

3. Scarlet witch

Another character that is not much of a hero because of so many conflicts she has. Especially, on who she is and who is her father (in part). Any character that has witch in their name could be written in my favorite character list. Wishing to see more of her in this new movie plus those to come. She is my favorite character because of her power and the bond she has with her brother although sometime to much of a strong bond. But forgetting that she could be a character to remember.

4. Daredevil

A character with a disability yet a superhero by day and night. Helping those that have problems in the law and protecting those that need protection from bad people. Daredevil is a favorite because he tries to use his knowledge of the justice system to help but notice the dirty part of it and takes justice to his own hand making him the daredevil.

5. Elektra

For me she consider more of a anti-villian being she had a really big traumatic incident when she was young. Making her psychologically unstable she is a character that if she is with good people she would do good deeds. She is a character I like because she represent what in real life will happen to someone. She is the most human one of all.

6. Wolverine

Wolverine is another favorite because he is one that doesn’t like being in any situation or battle. He is a chill person but yet has a need to protect others seemingly looking like he doesnt like it. I’m sure it makes him feel good (I’m making it seems like he is a real person). But still has conflict with his powers making me think he is the most understandable character of all the x-men characters.

7. Hulk

This one of the hardest to explain him being the strongest of all the avengers he could be the most sad one. Always being angry for little things makes me like him. Weird, Huh! Maybe because I will really like to feel less regret for being angry.

8. Punisher

My dislike for guns is unbearable making me question why I like the punisher. But his story and his need to get revenge for the death of his family makes me like him more. The honorable way he support his military fallen camarades is beautiful and his own way sadly he has for me the saddest storyline then any of my favorite characters.

9. Storm

Making it short I love her powers, the ability to manipulate weather it’s amazing and her hair is white. Cannot wait for her to be brought to the MCU maybe in Black Panther movie sequence. Cross my finger they do.

10. Gambit

Lastly but not least, gambit, just going to say being a girl it’s because of his looks. But power wise kenetic energy the ability to manipulate it is amazing as it is. Especially throwing cards at the opponent. One of my favorite x-men character from the original animated series when I was little. Being that the reason I like him.

Some of the reasons I like this characters are their powers, their morals or ideas of life but just how they act in teams. Which reflects that they work well with others showing what Avengers: Infinity War is going to be about.
