Milk and Honey
Milk and Honey | Rupi Kaur
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.

Rupi Kaur's words are simple and yet packed with emotion. She implies so much, words that resonate, without complicating the poems. Beautiful collection of poetry.

I don't read poetry very often but I think I will start. I enjoyed this so much. It spoke to me in so many ways like an understanding friend and I so very deeply needed this book. I needed it. It held me when I needed to be held. Thank you Rupi Kaur.

SW-T It was good. Also liked this one 5d

I love how forthright and honest she is in her work. I found her second book even more compelling. I wonder if she's working on a third?

Getting ready for a weekend out of town, so I decided to finish this one today too. I don‘t read poetry often, so I was disappointed that it wasn‘t my thing. It had some amazing moments, but I thought it was too focused on sexuality to have the depth it was trying to portray.

This (P), NY Times Bestseller, would be good for AS. The book includes the authors personal life events within the poetry. It can be beneficial in the classroom for students to evaluate and dissect the meaning of the poetry. UDL strategy (3.3)Guide information processing and ESOL 11. Place language in meaningful context can be used to help students analyze the poetry to complete AS. #LAE3414sp19

karamank I absolutely love this book. It made me fall in love with poetry and is so relatable. Thanks for sharing! 2mo
cwright I definitely think this would be a good addition to a classroom but I never thought about K-6 — if I remember correctly some of the themes are more mature, but sometimes 5/6 graders are ready for that I think! 2mo

I finished this in one sitting and loved it. It really covers a lot of ground. The author moves from abuse, pain, and self doubt to love, healing, and self acceptance. A beautiful and thoughtful poetry collection.

Since it‘s National Poetry Month, I want to read a little poetry every day. Well, the month started out on a low point for me because because I found this really meh. Only up from here, I guess.

Weaponxgirl I wasn‘t a fan of this one either, I‘m now kinda wary when I see instagram poet on the blurbs of poetry books. 3mo
Weaponxgirl I think it‘s great that they are getting people interested in poetry though! Just found a lot aren‘t for me. 3mo

I am taking my time reading and savoring this short book of poetry. Does anyone else feel torn at including short works like this as a part of their Goodreads reading goal? I feel like I am cheating!

Velvetfur Not at all! A book is a book, some are very short, some are very long, but if you've read it then it counts!! 💜 3mo

jb72 I feel like all books that I read should be included in my GR Goals (short stories, poetry books, children‘s books, novels, comic books, etc.). I‘ve even challenged myself to read all of Dr. Seuss‘ books this year, and I‘m counting them too. 3mo
tealwish @jb72 I love that! 3mo
Weaponxgirl No way, I include everything. Graphic novels, short books. I just try to make sure I keep it mixed up with longer books but that‘s a personal preference. There is no right or wrong way to read. I just update my goal if I end up reading a lot of short stuff. Do what you want! 3mo
tealwish @Weaponxgirl Yeah, I am sure I will balance it out with reading something long later. Thanks. I feel better about counting it now! :) 3mo

This would be the first poetry book I have tried. It was good but I am not sure I am a fan of poetry.

Bookwomble Kaur seems to be very popular, but I find her boring and obvious, though to be fair, that's just from browsing a few of her poems from the bookshop shelf. Kate Tempest is a great modern poet you might enjoy. "Hold Your Own" and "Let Them Eat Chaos" are good examples of her work. ? 3mo
Weaponxgirl I agree with @Bookwomble , I wouldn‘t say it‘s you not liking poetry just yet. I liked this one, just keep at it. Poetry is really personal but when you find something it will just click. 3mo

Started this book tonight...give me your thoughts I‘m curious what all of you guys think

RebeccaRoo7 It's been a little bit since I've read it, but I did enjoy it most of the time. But there were so many of those poems that I related to too well and that caused me to take some intermittent breaks. 3mo
Tiffanywrites2 I loved it. It‘s deep. It‘s healing. 3mo
CaliforniaCay Relatable, yet simple. I wish there were more to her poems, theres soooooooo much empty space in this book. But definitely worth the read. 3mo

I don't read much poetry but these were an easy entry and I admire someone willing to put themselves out there like Kaur has. milk and honey is split into four sections; hurting (trigger warnings), loving, breaking and healing.

Avidreader25 I felt the same about this one. I‘m not a big poetry reader, but loved it. 3mo
Reggie I actually took this book to work one night and read poems from it because we have some women that can be toxic towards other females. I made sure to read the one about Let‘s not make battlefields out of each other‘s bodies. The guys got it but the women could care less. Lol, I tried. 3mo

I really connected with this book of poetry. It was short but did not lack in emotion and excellence. The writing is superior and the writing is truly powerful. This is excellent.

hjreviews A lot of people criticize her writing as being lazy since she doesn‘t use “correct” grammar, but states on her website this is purposely done to mimic a language whose name I can‘t think of right now for traditional roots purposes and to express the need for equality she writes about. 4mo
hjreviews I‘m a big fan despite not everything being the most well written poem in the world, because she‘s getting people to read important messages. Also, she‘s a huge feminist and I gotta support that. 4mo
Victoriahoperose @hjreviews I got a bit of an e. e. cummings vibe from her. I think she used a really interesting way to portray an important message. I definitely liked it. 4mo
