Rating: 5/5 stars.

Like I previously said in one of my many Insta posts, "Rupi knows. Rupi understands." I love this book so much, I've finished this ages ago but I still have it on my bedside.

This is exactly the book I needed right now. Her poems about grief and learning to take care of yourself comforted and inspired me.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I love her books. If you haven‘t tried them, try Amanda Lovelace too 2mo

This beautiful illustration is a calendar page in my 2019 calendar by Ink and Wonder Designs (inkandwonder.com.au) featuring a beautiful quote from Rupi Kaur‘s The Sun and Her Flowers 🌻🧡🌻 I‘m still catching up on #SelfImprovementSept posts (albeit out of order), so this one is for Day 3: #flowers

I‘m not sure what it is. Maybe the fact that I loved Milk and Honey so much made me expect too much out of this one. But something about this one just didn‘t totally do it for me. There were a number of poems that made me feel all the feels. But if I hadn‘t needed to finish this to complete a readathon, I‘m not sure I ever would have.

I have no words to describe how beautifully tragic some of these poems are

This is the second book of poems I have read by Rupi Kaur. I switch back and forth from loving her writing to feeling lukewarm. She is raw and no holds barred about relationships, abuse, self-loathing, love, and finally, self-acceptance. It was peppered with some writings that didn't do much for me but overall, I loved this book.

I related with my current season and similar soil. Many poems were lessons I needed in this very moment and others missed me completely, without connection or heartbeat. I collect words and those I connected with will become part of me. Perhaps I'll rediscover others when the timing is right.

i hardened under the last loss. it took something human out of me. i used to be so deeply emotional i‘d crumble on demand. but now the water has made its exit. of course i care about the ones around me. i‘m just struggling to show it. a wall is getting in the way. i used to dream of being so strong nothing could shake me. now. i am. so strong. that nothing shakes me.
and all i dream is to soften.

Rupi Kaur did it again with another beautiful collection of poems. Poems to make you feel less alone and more understood.

A meaningful collection of poems about growth, ancestry, healing, putting down roots, finding yourself, empowerment, and self-love.

I absolutely love Rupi she is one of my favorites. Btw I got this book from https://www.thriftbooks.com they have so many books all at a cheap price. They are used, but the conditions are very good. 🙃🤓 #thrifty #booknerd

I loved this collection. I tried to draw it out to last longer because I didn't want to give it up. It was very emotionally heavy at times, empowering at others, but my favorites were those of her and her mother's relationship and the love and pride she had in her mother. Teared up a few times from the emotion of them. Highly recommend this collection.

Being a poet myself, I understand that poems are really personal and can be a prized possession for the poet. There were some poems and metaphors that really moved me. However the collection of poems on the whole was just okay.

I wanted to love this collection of poems as much as I love “Milk and Honey”, unfortunately that was not the case. There are some exceptionally moving poems throughout the collection, but as a whole, I felt it was just “okay”.
