This is a nice book. Reminds me of this one: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/hearts-arent-broken-theyre-dropped-carina-marie-marquez/1127769852?ean=9781982061975. Check out that one as well. Nice story of phases and all.

utterly unoriginal treatment of very common ideas—grade-school level poetry, seriously.

OMG I feel that all things womanhood are validated. The struggle, the heartbreak, the beauty, THE STRENGTH. I loved every...single...word. My favorite quote: “if you were born with the weakness to fall you were born with the strength to rise”

Bought for my tween on advice of store clerk. My daughter gave it back and said it was inappropriate. I couldn't believe it . I told him I didn't want any whiny or depressed poetry. It should come with a parental rating. It's getting returned, next time I'll be more thorough.

Poetry is very personal. The most celebrated poets may light your soul on fire.  Or they may not speak to you at all.  Reviewing poetry is a very personal experience as well, and you should never take a blogger or reviewer's opinion on poetry as law.  Read a poem by the poet in question.  Find out if they make you come alive. With that said, I have to be honest - I didn't love Milk and Honey.  Rupi Kaur is a highly celebrated modern, feminist poet.  Her poetry reaches a lot of people.  She's raw and real.  But the words didn't reach me.  And that's okay, you know?  The nice thing about poetry really is that things that don't appeal to me are perfect for someone else! There were a few poems that I thought were lovely, but mostly the subject matter was something I couldn't relate to.  And that's okay too - the first section in particular is something I don't want to relate to.  I like her modern style and the brevity of most of her work. I still recommend you give Rupi Kaur's work a try - whether that's Milk and Honey or another one of her books.  You may find her poetry is exactly what you're looking for.  It just didn't work for me.

This book is full of sincerity whether describing the highs or lows of life. It left me feeling hopeful and optimistic.

This book sends a reminder to us all to be loving of everyone and to be grateful for the small things in life. It reminds people that pain will always be in your life, but so will happiness. I was moved throughout the book and will definitely give this book a reread.

I was excited to read this after seeing great reviews and hearing others talk about it, plus I love and write poetry myself. But I did not like this book overall. There were several poems I really enjoyed and I loved the message behind most of them, but I really didn't like that most of the poems were actually just sentences. It felt very incomplete to me. I'm not sure that I would recommend this because there is so much amazing poetry out there and for me, this really misses the mark. I think that because there are a lot of good messages, I would maybe recommend it for someone who doesn't enjoy poetry. I have started reading another book by the same author and I'm liking it more though.
