Book Review: Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur

This book has been on my TBR for a while and I wish I hadn’t waited this long.

Milk and Honey is a work of poetry that flows like…. you guessed it, milk and honey. It has four parts, the hurting, the loving, the breaking and the healing. These poems all come together and tell a story or stories that are relatable and meaningful.

I read this book in one sitting as I just couldn’t stop. Even though these poems cover several themes such as love, loss, trauma, abuse, healing and femininity, it all seemed to tie up together as one incredible story which was both inspiring and empowering.

This is not your typical collection of poems. With some pages only having a few lines and others a shortish story, it makes for great reading and I plan to read it again soon.

I highly recommend this collection even for non poetry lovers, you will enjoy the read.
