Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur
Published November 4th 2014
milk and honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. It is about the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. It is split into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose, deals with a different pain, heals a different heartache. milk and honey takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.
I don’t really read poetry but I enjoyed Milk and Honey a lot. It wasn’t as amazing as I expected because of all the hype I’ve seen around it but it was still really good. There’s a pretty wide range of topics in this book and I think there’s a little something for everyone to relate to.
Rupi Kaur is an incredible writer and I’ll definitely be picking up any books she publishes in the future.
