"14 New Books You Definitely Need to Have on Your Radar in February " (Ryan Roschke, PopSugar) "18 Literary Quotes Every Feminist Needs to Read Right Now" #5 "the only thing / required / to be / a woman / is to / identify as one. / - period, end of story."

(Kerri Jarema, Bustle) "Similar in style-written in straightforward and uncomplicated verse, and content-grappling with themes of female power, love and loss, failure and redemption, pain and healing, poet Amanda Lovelace's The Princess Saves Herself in this One is similar to Kaur's Milk and Honey in another way as well: both books were self-published before going completely viral among readers."
