mini review: milk and honey by rupi kaur

Hi friends! I’m here to share my mini-review of a poetry collection that’s honestly been on my TBR for far too long.

Milk and honey’ is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. About the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. It is split 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 know nothing about poetry!!! I’m so clever!!! No but seriously, I can’t adequately review the technicality of this poetry. However, I can tell you with utmost sincerity that this is a collection of a human heart. The sheer emotion in every line? It was overwhelming. You could tell the author had poured her whole heart into these pages.
  • “i am a museum full of art but you had your eyes shut”. From this example is free-verse poetry. Which I’m not sure is my style? But I can definitely see how some people could enjoy it!
  • This focuses a lot on love and self. I wish we had gotten to see less physicality, and more platonic and familial love. I was a little disappointed.
  • The audiobook is read by the author, and that genuinely makes the whole experience so much richer.

That’s it! I would give this a solid 3 stars.
