I’m not an experienced poetry reader but this year I’m trying to branch out towards other genres, and the theme of Break your glass slippers resonated with me, so I wanted to give it a try. The message of female empowerment is great and it comes across strongly.
I also really liked the aesthetic of the book. Some nice drawings and interesting page settings. The lack of capitals for me took some getting used to. The story of Cinderella is taking as the base of the poems, which had a modern style where everything is discussed directly, which I quite liked.
I guess this was my favorite one:
there is nothing
about the girl
the ball gown
& the prince.
there is everything
who try to
shame her for
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
