Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Rupi Kaur's first book, Milk and Honey is the poetry collection every woman needs on her nightstand or coffee table. Accompanied by her own sketches, the beautifully honest poems read like the everyday, collective experiences of today's modern woman. (Erin Spencer, Huffington Post)

Rupi Kaur’s writing echoes of artistry and wisdom which is seen in the work of those that have been writing for years. (Samira Sawlani, Media Diversified)

Rupi’s poetry is simple, relatable, gorgeous, and grounded in the everyday experiences of young women. (Rachel Grate, Hello Giggles)

The honest words of Rupi Kaur leave you continuously wanting more as she writes with eloquence and poise. Her work will send you to past thoughts and realities you might not have known you had.
(Sienna Brown, WildSpice Magazine)

Meet the Author

When she was five, her mother handed her a paintbrush and said, “draw your heart out.” Rupi Kaur views her life as an exploration of that artistic journey. Through her poetry and illustrations, she engages with love, loss, trauma, healing, and femininity. For Rupi, writing has always been a collective experience. At the age of seventeen she began sharing her work. The stage was her first love and spoken word is where she found her voice. Rupi pursued her love for language by studying rhetoric at the University of Waterloo. She began working on her first collection milk and honey, which eventually became a New York Times bestseller. Rupi’s passion is expression. For her that expression takes many forms. Her photography and art direction are brought to various spaces around the world and her poetry and prose are breaking international boundaries.

I just got out of a relationship 3 days ago and was considering getting back together with him. This book helped me come to the realization that, that option is not an option anymore. I read this while 1. taking refuge in my bed and 2. Crying till the tears stopped. This book is what made my eyes finally dry up after 3 long days of feeling sorry for myself.

Barnes & Noble: This is not the book you describe. This book is about a girl's sexual abuse!!

So I had recently gotten a gift card for barnes and noble. I had 5 dollars remaining, and I enjoy this book, so I thought, why not get the 5 dollar e book version? I knew there could be risks, but I did not know that I could receive an entirely different book. I have read milk and honey before, and it is nothing like the 1800's sounding story of Krishna, who thou shalt fear nothing, or whatever the book said, that I recieved. Do not purchase the 5 dollar one!! It will waste your money. Barnes and Noble, I really don't like this. I expected the great book I loved, and got something that was almost unreadable. Waste of my money. Is there any way to get a refund? Please take the 5 dollar version off of this shop. It is a scam.

So in love with this book and I'm not even a fan of poetry. Can't wait to read more from Rupi Kaur.

Did not even deserve the one star I gave it. If there was an option for a lack of a star I would choose that. This book is absolute dribble. It is nothing other than hipster nonsense. This is not poetry. There are a few sentences per page with crude drawings of the female body below them. If you want to be depressed there are a few good sentences in here for you to feel down about yourself, but as I've come to understand, hipsters thrive on this moody fake sense of feeling "deep". Do not buy this book for a good read. Do not buy this book to enlighten yourself. Do not waste your money. If you are having a bonfire, perhaps then and only then would I suggest buying this book.

If you are easily triggered I would NOT read this book. There were many poems that threw me back into the past NOT IN A GOOD WAY. I sat there feeling awful when poetry should inspire. If you want to read little poetry snippets go on Tumblr because pretty much everything she wrote you can find on Tumblr anyways. This book was not creative nor did it stand out. I honestly do not know how it is so popular. I would never purchase this.

This is honestly the best book I've ever read and it is my favorite thing in existence. I have never related to a book as much as i relate to this book.
