"Milk and Honey" tells the story of the author's journey through "love, loss, trauma, abuse, healing and femininity". The stories told in each line of this book bring a sense of understanding to the harsh realities women face in today's…

I can see how why so many people loved milk and honey, however upon finishing this book of poetry, I realized quickly that this kind of "Instagram" poetry is definitely not for me. Milk and honey is a collection of poetry discussing…

Beautiful. This poetry collection by Rupi Kaur absolutely stunned me (I’ve already read it twice and am looking forward to reading it more before I return it to the library). Her writing explores relationships we as humans have (like…

Reading this collection of poems was an experience. Kaur’s style is very informal, very short, but very powerful. Her added illustrations often give the lines an intimate, daydreaming quality as if these words were written while sketching…

Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur is a beautifully written book full of well-developed poems. I enjoyed following through the four stages of what seems like a woman’s life, in contrast to almost the five stages of grief. As opposed to completely…

Milk and Honey is written by Rupi Kaur, a powerful and raw author. I enjoyed flipping through this and connecting to the poems and illustrations. I like that she shares her poetry online, that a huge part of why they're successful is…

I get all the comments for those who didn't like this but at the same time I just don't I love this book it's an empowering moment of how she felt and how expressed her feeling of mourning , emptiness, and sorrow of telling people her…

This is a poetry book full of angst. I like the sentence structure and size of the poems and I like the scribble art work, but the poem content seen to be purely about a breakup and, although teens and twenty-somethings may relate, I found…

Rupi Kaur's "Milk and Honey" incorporates many messages that need to be said, especially in this era. She often references to themes of feminism, abuse, and empowering oneself which is one of my favorite parts of the book. That being…

See: "RebelBelle13" in this thread of comments for the most accurate (and hilarious) review of this book. I couldn't possibly have said it better.

There are many truths in this book that are an empowerment of the Self. "Love Yourself" first, in order to be free to love Life & Others. Rupi Kaur has a talent with words that brings concepts to the forefront in a few words and lines.…

4 Stars - I recommend if you enjoy poetry, and are looking for something that will make you feel. This will make you feel ALL THE FEELINGS. A collection of poetry and sketches divided by topic: love, breaking, healing, etc. This was…

Very simple and concise poetry which nevertheless conveys a huge amount of deeply personal experience and emotion. *Not PG and not for the faint of heart.

I have never been one to really invest myself into poetry, but I did enjoy this collection. My interests are usually longer fiction and nonfiction pieces. After reading this work, I actually picked up another collection by Shenaia Lucas,…

In the foreword the author, writing in her early twenties, describes how she already feels distant from the girl who wrote this book, and yes, the writing feels incredibly young and raw, full of so much more passion than craft. It has its…

I just could not connect with this book of poems. The author sections this book into four. Each section encompassing a theme of poems. The first section I think was the most important in that it deals with sexual abuse and assault. This…

I loved this! I liked the wording and the structure and I resonated with so many of the poems.
