2016 Goodreads Choice Award-winning poet Amanda Lovelace returns in the witch doesn't burn in this one — the bold second book in her "women are some kind of magic" series.

The witch: supernaturally powerful, inscrutably independent, and now—indestructible. These moving, relatable poems encourage resilience and embolden women to take control of their own stories. Enemies try to judge, oppress, and marginalize her, but the witch doesn’t burn in this one.

On the anniversary of her daredevil brother's death, Jaycee attempts to break into Jake's favorite hideout—the petrifying ruins of an insane asylum. Joined by four classmates, each with their own brand of dysfunction, Jaycee discovers a map detailing her brother's exploration and the unfinished dares he left behind.

As a tribute to Jake, Jaycee vows to complete the dares, no matter how terrifying or dangerous. What she doesn't bargain on is her eccentric band of friends who challenge her to do the unthinkable: reveal the parts of herself that she buried with her brother.

Hey, there... It's Been a While

No comments :
Hey, everyone! I just wanted to pop in and tell you that I'm alive! I kind of took a really long and unannounced hiatus from blogging (and reading...).

Anyway, I just wanted to say hello, and to tell you to look out for some sporadic posts as I've just finished two books. (Yay me!)

I realize I don't exactly have to explain my absence from the book blogging world, but a lot has happened during the past year or so. The biggest thing was me going back to school! You're reading a post from a girl who just finished her first year of graduate school with a 4.0! I'm so giddy! I'll be taking two classes over the summer, and if all goes well, I'm hoping to graduate by December of 2020. It takes a while to get through school when you're working as much as I am.

Love you all!
