Milk and Honey

Milk and Honey
By: Rupi Kaur
This book has 204 pages.
Milk and Honey contains beautifully written poems separated into four sections- the hurting, the loving, the breaking, and the healing.
Poetry is a very personal type of writing, but the best part is when you find that poem that you absolutely feel for.
All of these poems are raw, powerful, and extraordinary. 
The vulnerability is what makes this book so touching.
It covers topics such as love, heartbreak, violence, abuse, strength, and femininity.
I myself am not one to favoritize  poetry, but I am a big quote person.
I was scrolling through Tumblr and saw many different excerpts from Milk and Honey and the  captivating emotion that I could feel made me decide to order it.
I have no regret in doing so.
This collection of poetry will defiantly be one of those that I'll be going back to often and rereading to remind myself that there is hope.
I recommend this book to anyone, especially to those that may not think that poetry is their type of thing. This will defiantly change their mind.
I give this book a 5 out of 5!
Some of my favorite poems from Milk and Honey:

"trying to convince myself
i am allowed 
to take up space
is like writing with
my left hand
when i was born
to use my right"

"don't mistake
salt for sugar
if he wants to
be with you
he will
it's that simple"

"the thing 
worth holding on to
would not have let go"

"love made the danger
in you look like safety"

"you were not wrong for leaving
you were wrong for coming back
and thinking
you could have me
when it was convenient
and leave when it was not"
