Look what came today, the ‘milk and honey’ self-published book by Rupi Kaur. For about a few years now I have seen poems from this book on social media sites, especially on Instagram. Seeing these posts made me more intriguied as they had very much realted to my current situations in life. This book is set to have sold more than half a million copies just in the US alone, so surly it must be worth getting?
‘Milk and honey’ is the experience of; loss, violence, abuse, femininity and love. The book is divided into four chapters (the hurting, the loving, the breaking, the healing) as each chapter has its own purpose.
This book is retailed at £9.99 in book stores but can be found online for about £6.99. I am so excited to read these poems and if anyone has read this book please leave me a comment below and tell me what you thought of it, as it is always interesting knowing other people’s opinions!
