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 am a #booknerd and embrace solitude and quiet. i love the artwork but am only giving this popular poetry ⭐️⭐️ I was moved by #thehurt but the remaining sections were obvious or maybe I‘m too old to appreciate her writing 🙏

Milk and Honey | Rupi Kaur

what terrifies me most is how we
foam at the mouth with envy
when others succeed
but sigh in relief
when they are failing

our struggle to
celebrate each other is
what‘s proven most difficult
in being human

Trashcanman How true, very beautiful. Thank you for sharing. 1mo

This was recommended just a few years back and I wanted to see what the hype was about.
It is a collection of Rupi Kaur's poems that tell readers about a person's experience of hurting, loving, breaking, and healing. (check comment)
“i am water
soft enough to offer life
tough enough
to drown it away“ (127)
“i am losing parts of you like i lose eyelashes
unknowingly and everywhere“ (125)

1ReVeluvY I think the poetry novel is understood more for readers that have a good level of maturity. I expected more however. The author likes to state ideas already stated but is expressed in another way. There are some poems that were accurate and the rest made me want to skip it. 1mo

Took a break from reading the secrets we keep to re-read this book again.. I really like this author and have ordered another book from her. It‘s so weird, if you look online you can see singular pages of the books, but when you read it from cover to cover you see how all of these quotes turn into a story. One of the things that spoke to me was “people go, but how they left, always stays.”
Overall I‘m glad I got the book

Cfischbuch I like what you have selected. Nice choice. 1mo
MrsBabki Oh wow! We have to talk - one of my favorite books. Well done, kiddo! 1mo

I thought this was everywhere b/c it's Really Good Poetry, then I heard on a podcast it's really that she had a huge Instagram following so I finally read it and... Yep. A few nice poems and I agree with much of the sentiment but mostly it reads like an early aughts Melo-journal (anyone else remember those?) Glad when I decided to read more poetry I started with Sabrina Benhaim and Olivia Gatwood instead.

If you‘re going through a breakup or questioning your self worth, I think this book is for you! Its good when you need to read in short burst and not a whole binge book.

1/5⭐ I could tell the words meant a lot to the author, but there was too much missing to connect. It felt much more like a diary with entries contextualized solely to the writer's life. I appreciated some of the points/messages, particularly in the first part, but the almost stream-of-consciousness format didn't read like poetry at all. (Admittedly, Natasha Trethewey's mindblowing collections might have ruined me of all other poetry.)

Grab a blanket and some tea or coffee and get ready to take some time and sit and reflect upon each poem. Each one will hit you differently than the last and each sldeserves some time for proper reflection.

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.

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

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! 6mo
