Milk and Honey By: Rupi Kaur (Reviewed by Rochelle)

About Book:

#1 New York Times bestseller Milk and Honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. About the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity.

The book is divided 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.

My Review:

I read the Sun and her Flowers and then I saw that she had Milk and Honey.  I requested it from my local library and finally it came available in my account. .  It’s a short book and some poetry that I really liked and then there was some that I thought didn’t really had any meaning.   This book had me hooked from the beginning to the end. Great book for anyone going through any sort of a rough time. Or even if you’re feeling great. Either way it’s empowering.    I am giving this a 5 star review.

Happy Reading everyone
