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!
