Review: Burn The Fairy Tales by Adeline Whitmore

This book of poems had potential. I understand what the author was attempting to accomplish. I had hoped that it would be book about empowering women and offering encouraging works. but unfortunately, it was not. 

Burn The Fairy Tales felt rushed, unorganized, and a little repetitive. 

I'm not sure if it was my copy, but all the poems were not separated. For example, the title for the next poem tended to run into the next poem. At times, I was not sure if it was the title for the next poem or if it was a line in the prior poem. It was a little confusing. 

Like mentioned earlier, I understand what the book was trying to accomplish. But it felt rant-y. I love a good rant now and again, but the author tended to focus more on the bad and not on the future. I didn't feel inspired. I felt the author's rage, which is not a bad thing, however, I expected something more. 

I wanted to love the poems, instead of only somewhat liking a few. 

The writing was a little conflicting. The author would say something, and then in another poem say something completely different. 

While reading, I did pick up the similarities between this book and The Princess Saves Herself in This One by Amanda Lovelace. Both books have the same black background and white font color. And also both books are in essence about feminism. Whereas, The Princess Saves Herself in This One succeeds, this book fails.
