Review: milk and honey by Rupi Kaur

On July 8, 2016 I finished reading the book milk and honey by Rupi Kaur. 


I had very mixed feelings about this. It was hard to decide between three stars and four. I was expecting a lot more from this that I felt like the description of this book was a little misleading.

I marked more passages in this book than I have in any other book I’ve felt the need to save words from. The random punctuation took a little while to get used to and over.

This book had a lot of poems about sex and using people (i.e. I was pretending you were someone else or I hope you pretend she was me). If I knew in advance that what felt like was half the book was about those subjects, I would have never purchased the book. I’m not interested in others people sex lives so this left me feeling a little uneasy and I ended up skipping over all those parts.

On the other hand, this book had a lot of good messages and things I’d like to remember and share with others about loving yourself and fellow women, how you must do what makes you happy and not let others dictate your thoughts.

All my reviews can be found on Amazon, Goodreads, and LibraryThing
