having grown up a word-devourer & avid fairy tale lover, it was only natural that amanda lovelace would begin writing books of her own. so she did. when she isn't reading or writing, she can be found waiting for pumpkin spice coffee to come back into season & binge-watching gilmore girls. (before you ask: team jess all the way.) the lifelong poetess & storyteller currently lives in new jersey with her spouse, their ragdoll cats, & a combined book collection so large it will soon need its own home. she is a two-time winner of the Goodreads Choice Award for best poetry as well as a USA Today & Publishers Weekly bestseller.
"Whether or not you read poetry regularly, Break Your Glass
Slippers by Amanda Lovelace should be on your must-read list."

"Those who are fans and followers of Lovelace will not be disappointed, as she serves up her unique mix of fairytale references and female empowerment, all distilled down into scant, but impactful words . . . The structure of this collection is smart and truly unique. While many other contemporary poets write on similar topics, Lovelace has found a way to make herself standout." (YA Books Central)
"Ultimately, Break Your Glass Slippers is a thought-provoking collection of poems that cohesively tell a story asking us to see our own value and beauty beneath whatever dirt others may have put there." (The Nerd Daily)
"A catalog of inspirational and emotional poems that aim to help readers find their own journey to self-love, tell their own story, and forget about the people who never saw their worth." (Parade)
