This is a review of the Target special edition. It has a red cover instead of the white one, a letter from the author, and bonus poems.
I was so excited to read this because I’ve been super into witches lately. However, I liked this, but I didn’t like it as much as her first collection.
This collection got a bit repetitive at some points. There were a lot of poems on burning and fire. I wish there would have been more poems about the coven aspect of witches. There was a lot she could have done with covens, especially in the last section. It thought it was a missed opportunity.
Another thing that I didn’t love was how she brought up queens in this book. In the last section she talks about witch-queens, and I wished she would have just focused solely on witches. References to queens should have stayed in her first collection.
As for the bonus poems that are included in this edition, I really loved the first one about girl on girl hate. I wished that would have made the final cut.
Despite all of that, I still enjoyed this collection. There were some really good poems. But overall, it didn’t quite meet my expectations.
