Book Review: Milk and Honey

Ok, Wow that was fast. Within 2 hours of my release of my May TBR, I finish the first book on my list. I literally devoured this book.

Rating: 2.5/5

I finished this book in about 2 hours. I left it confused, reassured,  breathless. On one hand, I devoured this book; but i’m not sure I want to keep it. While I related and loved most of the poetry in here, some of it is a little risque. Reader discretion advised. This book made me think. Think about topics I wouldn’t normally think about. And for that, I thank the author.

I think my favorite “chapter” in this book was The Healing. Probably because I am attempting to heal from something myself. (My own fault really). One of the poems that stuck out to me was:

if you were born with the weakness to fall

you were born with the strength to rise

I would recommend this book to someone going through some tough times or even some lovely times. Especially if you are in one of those poetry moods and like to think about life’s meaning or just in one of those thinking moods. This book was really inspiring for all the stuff that made me uncomfortable. Again, thank you to the author for making me think.

  1. I like her Rupi Kaur’s thoughts. I’ve only seen several quotes from her, but never read any of her writings. What do you think of a book exchange kind of thing? Maybe every once in a while we can trade books temporarily or indefinitely? Inbox me if you are interested!
