In beginning of November I ordered a lexicon online, and looked at other books (just for no reason), and came across this one. “milk and honey” by Rupi Kaur. I’ve stumbled upon some poets from this book on the internet a few times, and thought it could be interesting to read some more of it. I’ve never really read poems/poetry books before, so I didn’t know what to expect. The book wasn’t that expensive so I just ordered it.
First of all. I love this book. It’s simple yet so deep. I wish my 16-year-old-me had this book, because I’m pretty sure it could have been helpful to go through a tough teen with some hope and relatable quotes. It makes you feel like you’re not alone when it comes to all the emotions she writes about.
The illustrations are also made by Kaur, and they fit in perfectly with the simplicity of her work. I’m down to buy her other book “the sun and her flowers”. Or generally books. My interest in reading books is slowly coming back to me. It’s like an escape ticket for moment from all the chaotic days, and reading 30 min. per day gives your mind a (needed) break.
I can only recommend this book, especially if you’re open for deeper simple stories and poets 🙂 ♥
