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.

I don't know what to say about this book...
I just didn't like it as much as I would like to. I know that poetry is a personal thing and nobody can judge it, in fact I'm not saying it's not good, just that I didn't get some of the poetries.
Don't know...

This book was a nice reminder of how joyful reading poetry can be and the double meanings

Haven‘t been able to read the past two days because of a killer migraine that won‘t go away. I went to sleep with it and woke up with it. I still managed to clean my house, but my 2y/o has been extra terrible today on top of everything. We‘re gonna be iced in tomorrow so I hope my head feels better so I can enjoy my snow day with a good book. Send me some positive vibes.. 😔😩

BookDragonNotWorm Hope you feel better soon! (Take a video of your 2yo to blackmail them with when they're a teenager. 😉) 4mo
KateReadsYA Girl I've not read the past 2 days either! Sorry your not feeling well, get better soon! I'll be starting our buddy hopefully in the next few days! Thankfully we picked a week to get through the first half because life has been busy! Sending virtual hugs. 4mo

If the hurt comes then so will the happiness. -Rupi Kaur I picked this quote because it‘s true. It‘s true because if you don‘t feel sad you will never know what it feels like to be happy.

Milk and honey is a book of personal flaws. It touches deep into your personal life and heals what you didn‘t know was damaged. The poems listed inside the book are personal, and imperfect which makes the book stronger in the message being sent throughout. It helps your flaws resurrect as beauty and opens your eyes to what may be hidden under a persons skin.

MissYaremcio DOGGIE! (Although it is a cute pupper, I needed a photo of the book...) I needed the recommendation! 4.5/6 6mo

2. Hmm... 🤔 I'd say Hiraku Makimura (in Dance Dance Dance by Haruki Murakami) - an unsuccessful overrated writer character... 😆 Honi soit qui mal y pense...

3. Tagged. Saw it today when shopping for #jolabokaflodswap and #littlechristmasswap and bought it immediately. Discovered it on here earlier this year... Typical #blameitonlitsy buy... ⬇

Quick read. Although some people do not agree that this is poetry i am fine with whatever it is.This book consists of the hurting, the loving, the breaking and the healing.
What touches me most is that “Every time you tell your daughter you yell at her out of love you teach her to confuse anger with kindness which seems like a good idea till she grows up to trust men who hurt her cause they look so much like you” from the hurting.
4 stars out of 5

This has been the hardest part of leaving behind my old life and losing my independence.

I'm hoping one day I will look back from a position of success and be able to give back to my friends and family who helped me when I fell.

I don't know what that "Success" will look like yet, but one day I hope to look back on all these struggles and be proud again ❤

CBee You will! Just be gentle with and kind to yourself. These things take time ♥️ 10mo

Second time round for this book. Still great, but the audio does sound a bit more sensual/sexual for work setting it might just be in how she reads it with some heavy breathing and long drawn out sentences. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

you‘ll taste the bitter

you‘d rather have the

This collection for me, felt more like a collection of prose but I think that of most modern poetry lately, but there were pieces in this book that reminded me too much of what I've written about in my journals, so for me, this collection was like reliving a moment.

A bit angsty, loving, strong, naive, bold, and young - there's a bit of everything for different readers.

The tagged book has helped me but I need to read more non-fiction books on trauma. Happy books that I enjoyed are the 2 by Talia Hibbert and The House in the Cerulean Sea.

1. I have actually not been listening to any@misc but occasionally listening to this: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/1llkez7kiZtBeOw5UjFlJq?nd=1
2. The outpouring of virtual love and support from people who make me believe in the goodness of Americans.

Read as much as I could whilst in a library. Was moving in it‘s honesty of painful experiences. Only bailed because I couldn‘t get through the whole thing in the time I had. Some important truths, albeit presented transparently.
