Life and Other Things

the sun and her flowers are here by Rupi Kaur

In case you haven’t heard – Rupi Kaur’s second book hit the shelves this week.

Her first book, “milk and honey” sold 2.5 million copies and spent 77 weeks on The New York Times best-seller list.

milk and honey is a collection of poems that tackles themes like rape, violence, alcoholism, and trauma. It is written in short, simple verse – with her doodles as visual representations.

Her new book, the sun and her flowers takes you on a journey through growth, healing, ancestry, and finding a home within yourself.

One thing I love about Kaur’s books is that they can be read chronologically, like a story, or stand-alone. You can pick up one of her books and flip to a random page and be instantly immersed in her story.

Kaur’s poetry ignites every emotion possible.

Her clever, real, down-to-earth writing fills me with inspiration.

I was worried that I would never be able to relate to another book the way I related to milk and honey but Kaur hit the nail on the head, again.

Have you read her new book yet? Let me know what you think!

  1. I have honey and milk by her. Her new book hasn’t arrived here yet. What is your review about it? Rupi has been criticized for being “Instagram poet” and not a real one. I love reading poetry. I want to buy Bone by Ysra Daley-Ward.
