Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur : Book Review

Title  :  Milk and Honey

Author  :  Rupi Kaur

Length  :  208 pages

Rating  :  ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis  :  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.


Rupi's work is absolutely incredible. It got me feeling all sorts of ways and even had me crying a little. I was so emotional reading this it hit me the most at the end but honestly all these poems and prose was just fantastic. Would highly recommend. 

This book is split up into four different chapters that all deal with something a little different but are made up of poems and prose written by of course Rupi. She is such a talented writer. I mean I never thought I would like any type of poetry and have never myself picked up anything poetry related other than something to do with school or what my auntie used to write. But this made me really interested and intrigued to read more poetry. 

This book does deal with some not so nice topics such as abuse and loss but there is also happiness and love filled within this book. It comforted me at the same time and killing me. It make my feel so emotional. I just can't even gather my thoughts. 

I cannot say enough great things about her beautiful work in this book as well as the drawings that came along with it. I even read the 'About The Author' section because I just so fricking interested. LOVE LOVE LOVE. This will definitely be appearing in my end of the year top picks.
