Welcome to Weekly Wonder, our weekly addition to your TBRs.
This week’s wonder is:
SO, WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?
this is the journey of
surviving through poetry
this is the blood sweat tears
of twenty-one years
this is my heart
in your hands
Milk and Honey is book of free verse by Rupi Kaur, a Canadian- Indian poet. Full of her suffering, her love, and her feminity, Rupi Kaur bares her soul to the readers. It chronicles her process of healing and relearning to love.
A GLIMPSE BETWEEN THE PAGES
WHAT I LOVE ABOUT IT
- Rupi Kaur’s poetry truly embodies what feminism is.
- It is some of the best free verse poetry I have come across.
- The format and pages are very aesthetically pleasing- the copy is not just a great read but also looks like a work of art.(For this reason, I recommend that you purchase a physical copy rather than the ebook.)
- Rupi’s penchant for capturing an ocean of feelings in just a few words is breathtaking.
- Her poetry may not appeal to men. (I think men would love it too, if they tried to give it a chance instead of hiding their emotions behind machismo.)
- You might need to take a few mental health days after reading the book.
WHO IS IT FOR?
- Lovers of poetry (specifically spoken word and free verse)
- Lovers of emotional works of literature.
Hope you enjoy the book.
