Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur
After hearing about Milk and Honey for years, I finally sat down and delved into this unique poetry collection. And I have to say, it’s one of the most powerful collections of poetry and prose I’ve ever read.
The author, Rupi Kaur, divides the book into four chapters that explore themes of love, loss, healing, and femininity.
What I love most about Kaur’s writing style is how raw, honest, and emotive it is. She uses simple yet impactful language to convey her thoughts and experiences, which seems to really resonate with readers seeing as how her book is on pretty much every celebrity book club list!
Her poems are short but pack a punch, leaving a lasting impact. The book covers so many different aspects of life, from heartbreak to self-discovery. And what’s amazing is that Kaur’s exploration of these themes is relatable and thought-provoking, really making us reflect on our own experiences.
She captures the complexities of human emotions and experiences beautifully and offers comfort and understanding to those who have gone through similar struggles.

Permission to judge a book by its cover!
Milk and Honey is beautiful in its simplicity. A black background with white text and white bee imagery—perfection! @saddlestitches.n.foldedcorners and @aliviasbookshelf styled their books in such a way that I want to climb into those scenes and spend a dreamy Sunday sipping honeyed lattes and reading the day away.
*Milk and Honey fulfilled my POPSUGAR Reading Challenge prompt for a book that’s on a celebrity book club list.
