Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur

#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.

utterly unoriginal treatment of very common ideas—grade-school level poetry, seriously.

OMG I feel that all things womanhood are validated. The struggle, the heartbreak, the beauty, THE STRENGTH. I loved every...single...word. My favorite quote: “if you were born with the weakness to fall you were born with the strength to rise”

This made me feel so many emotions I was confused at myself and my feelings. One of the most touching and uplifting books I've ever read. Maybe not appropriate for all ages unless you are mature for your age, but it made me cry and I NEVER cry. My friend has really terrible depression and is suicidal, but this book helps her cope through the more difficult times and she truly loves it and the other book by the same author(i forgot what it was called, but it had Sunflower in the title) I am thanful so much for this book and for the author who was willing to share her story.

I enjoyed the poetry in this book. The last 2 chapters of the book really made me think cause I actually can relate to some of the things when it came to loving someone to breaking up and allowing yourself to feel and embrace the pain after a break up and moving on from it. I would recommend this book.

milk and honey is a beautiful book of poetry about overcoming those moments in life that have the power to destroy us and also living in the moments where we are with the one with love, even if that person is our own self. There are also poems about living life as a woman in today's society. Some of the poems are just a few words and others are little longer. But all of the poems resonate will resonate with you and give you something to think about.

It was raw and unapologetic, you feel like you can relate to absolutely everything. I read this book everyday, it is my therapy.

It's a very short book, but if you've dealt with interpersonal abuse or hardships, then it's possible you'll find your own thoughts and experiences in this book. I know I did. :3
