Book Review: milk and honey

milk and honeymilk and honey by Rupi Kaur
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is full of such raw beauty that it spoke to me on a different level than most. I grabbed this book being blind to the huge following that Rupi Kaur already has. It was the back cover that really first caught my attention:

this is the journey of
surviving through poetry
this is the blood sweat tears
of twenty-one years
this is my heart
in your hands
this is
the hurting
the loving
the breaking
the healing

-rupi kaur

I read that and immediately set my mind to getting the book no matter what. milk and honey is easily one of my favorite collections and should be on everyone's shelf. The words melded into something that easily seeped through the pores of my skin and found itself a permanent home in my heart.

The highest praise to Rupi and her works. Read it. It is worth it, I promise.
