    Rupi Kaur has again delivered a palpable collection of perspective on varying issues of significance that range from love to heartbreak and all the things in between. I leave this experience feeling grateful, beautiful, and incredibly empowered. I am in love with this woman's writing. ...

    ?You?re everywhere Except right here And it hurts.? ...

    the lines of the poems were much longer than milk and honey?s and the poems overall were longer (sometimes too long) which I greatly appreciated, but I found it repetitive at times and I didn?t know where it was all going. I loved the talk of girl love & self love & ...

    I hadn't read Milk and Honey so came to this book with no preconceived expectations. As a big fan of poetry I love to find new poets who inspire me and make me question my own view of the World. I enjoy reading poems that are hard hitting and don't shy away from the brutality of the Wo...

    it isn't what we left behind that breaks me it's what we could've built had we stayed. Grief, self abandoment, the bond between a child and her parents, girl power, and respecting the generations that came before are all themes of the second collection of poetry by Rupi Kaur....

    4.25 STARS!!!! ?I hear a thousand kind words about me and it makes no difference yet I hear one insult and all confidence shatters - focusing on the negative." This quote was like a punch in a gut. I felt guilt, shame, and realization when I read it because honestly, I am lik...

    reread - 4.5 stars ------------------------ 4.25 stars Oh. my. God. I enjoyed this way more than Milk and Honey, I loved the writing, the illustrations and the messages in this collection. From heartbreak, to rape, to immigration, to police brutality, this was excellent...

    I love Rupi's books of poetry. Many of them are like thoughts floating through my brain. They can be like a Haiku, a simple 4 line thought. These books speak to me deeply. I felt Milk and Honey was more powerful and this one still had that fire of truth burning in the verse. I enjo...

    This review was brought to you by the best Real Housewives gifs on giphy.com. Let me start off by saying that I am not a fan of Rupi Kaur's milk and honey; HOWEVER, being the forgiving person that I am, I have decided to give her work a second chance. Warning: The gifs you ar...

    4.5 Stars Wow. Let me say I had low expectations going into this, but I was so wrong. Backstory: I'm not a fan of milk & honey. It's not a style I enjoy at all, and the entire book just felt too Tumblr and cheesy and simplistic. this blew me away. it's so different, fresh, and j...

    I want to thank Jon(athan) Nakapalau for recommending this poetry collection to me. I have never read something similar before. The only part that I did not enjoy was the first one. In general, it was a nice experience, and I will probably read her other collection too. ...

    [Edit: had to change my rating to 5 stars] Rupi Kaur does it once again. Her poetry is blooming. Her words hit home as they always do. I mean, there's a reason why there's a surge in poetry books being sold now. She's the reason. I love what she advocates in her poetry collectio...

    Enjoyed this a lot. A few pieces really stood out to me, especially on the topic of being a WOC and immigration. Liked this more than MILK AND HONEY. ...

    Heart breaking yet empowering - a woman's journey of growth - (wilting, falling, rooting, rising, and blooming) as she comes to terms with her past, present and future. As a man this book touched me because I never was aware of all the different ways we try to make women conform to 'ou...

    Beautiful book. Loved that there were longer pieces in this one and that the book was thicker in general. Wonderful illustrations as always though I have to say that since she has used drawings that were quite similar to some in her first book, I kinda got confused and thought for a mo...

    Rupi Kaur has again delivered a palpable collection of perspective on varying issues of significance that range from love to heartbreak and all the things in between. I leave this experience feeling grateful, beautiful, and incredibly empowered. I am in love with this woman's writing. ...

    ?You?re everywhere Except right here And it hurts.? ...

    I hadn't read Milk and Honey so came to this book with no preconceived expectations. As a big fan of poetry I love to find new poets who inspire me and make me question my own view of the World. I enjoy reading poems that are hard hitting and don't shy away from the brutality of the Wo...

    it isn't what we left behind that breaks me it's what we could've built had we stayed. Grief, self abandoment, the bond between a child and her parents, girl power, and respecting the generations that came before are all themes of the second collection of poetry by Rupi Kaur....

    [Edit: had to change my rating to 5 stars] Rupi Kaur does it once again. Her poetry is blooming. Her words hit home as they always do. I mean, there's a reason why there's a surge in poetry books being sold now. She's the reason. I love what she advocates in her poetry collectio...

    I don't know where to begin. Listen, as a Punjabi woman of course I gave Rupi a try - that's what we brown girls do, we hold each other up and support each other like crazy because who else will? However, I think we should also be able to speak up when the work just doesn't cut it. Bei...

    *Thank you so much to Indigo for surprising me with a copy of this!* I never read Milk & Honey. It just seemed like such a fad thing, I had no interest in it. I tend to prefer traditional poetry. It's just my inner English major coming out I suppose! That being said, I enjoyed t...

    This review was brought to you by the best Real Housewives gifs on giphy.com. Let me start off by saying that I am not a fan of Rupi Kaur's milk and honey; HOWEVER, being the forgiving person that I am, I have decided to give her work a second chance. Warning: The gifs you ar...

    Beautiful... The range of emotions are all felt ... sadness, anger, loss, grief, pride, guilt, fear, nervousness, shame, joy, surprise, love .... These stories/ poems are heartfelt... rupi kaur is a lovely gift to the world. ?for so long i was lost in a place where there w...

    This long-awaited second collection of poetry by Rupi Kaur made waves; it was a ride brimming with of every kind of emotion imaginable. Divided into five chapters and illustrated by Kaur, the sun and her flowers is a vibrant and transcendent journey about growth and healing. Ancestr...

    4.5 Stars Wow. Let me say I had low expectations going into this, but I was so wrong. Backstory: I'm not a fan of milk & honey. It's not a style I enjoy at all, and the entire book just felt too Tumblr and cheesy and simplistic. this blew me away. it's so different, fresh, and j...

    Beautiful book. Loved that there were longer pieces in this one and that the book was thicker in general. Wonderful illustrations as always though I have to say that since she has used drawings that were quite similar to some in her first book, I kinda got confused and thought for a mo...

    Rupi Kaur has again delivered a palpable collection of perspective on varying issues of significance that range from love to heartbreak and all the things in between. I leave this experience feeling grateful, beautiful, and incredibly empowered. I am in love with this woman's writing. ...

    the lines of the poems were much longer than milk and honey?s and the poems overall were longer (sometimes too long) which I greatly appreciated, but I found it repetitive at times and I didn?t know where it was all going. I loved the talk of girl love & self love & ...

    I hadn't read Milk and Honey so came to this book with no preconceived expectations. As a big fan of poetry I love to find new poets who inspire me and make me question my own view of the World. I enjoy reading poems that are hard hitting and don't shy away from the brutality of the Wo...
