milk and honey

milk and honey by Rupi Kaur

Age: Adult
Category: Poetry
Rating: 5 stars

Juliet Thinks: This book of poems is one that I had high expectations for because I had seen many people post about snippets of it on social media. There was something enticing about the simple drawings coupled with a short poem, so I decided to order it.

The book certainly deserves the accolade it has received from the public. Kaur's poems are harrowing and deeply relatable. Some of her writing in this book breaks conventions of poetry, such as a poem that is one very long paragraph. With no punctuation and sharp words, Kaur paints a jarring image of what it is like to feel unloved, enamored, fundamentally disappointed, and human.
