I'm not a huge poetry person, but I just had to buy this book after hearing so many people talking about it. It didn't disappoint in anyway. The poetry in this book is so raw and beautiful that I related to so many that I kept going back to reread my favorites and highlight and tab them.

I get likes on this review daily and for a long time i've felt like a 3-star review was too generous so I lowered it to 2 today, which is more accurate in hindsight.

If I could sum up my thoughts about this book, it would just be, "Oh."

Honestly, very underwhelming. I'm not sure why people go crazy about this book and say it's gorgeous and it's their favorite book, because honestly, it's very plain. Some poems are just basic sentences with random skips that have no real point, the

When I was in college I used to cut quotes from magazines and tape them to my door. I would start in the center and by the end of the semester my door would be a work of art. I thought it an intense, dramatic representation of my feelings about love, beauty, and being defined by men (they were boys but I was too young to realize this then). This book reminds me of that. The cover is soft and black. It is a collection of thoughts that are not capitalized or punctuated. It is fragmented. It is hon ...more

lol started this forever ago & just now finished it! didn't love this one as much as i was hoping to, but i understand why so many connect to it. i respect the author for being so open and honest about things she's faced.

4.5 stars.

Wow.

I really didn't know what to expect when I picked up Rupi Kaur's exquisite collection of poetry and prose. Poetry is often hit or miss with me—I totally appreciate it as an art form but sometimes I just don't get it. (I'm as creative as the next person, but sometimes my brain is tired and just wants to be told what something means rather than struggle to decode it. Sorry, I'm a Neanderthal.)

Milk and Honey is about happiness and despair, hurt and joy, love and sadness, and finding

While Rupi Kaur seems very passionate and while I agree with her politics, content, and message, that doesn't make this writing very good. Some of the poems are excellent and will draw you in, but mainly, they are very overrated in terms of pure quality. I see why her poems are popular, but not why she's considered a 'great' or 'brilliant' writer. She's addressing universal themes, but she doesn't do so in an especially artful/skilled way. I'd say if you aren't a big fan of poetry, this book cou ...more
