    2/7/2017 I get likes on this review daily and for a long time i've felt like a 3-star review was too generous so I lowered it to 2 today, which is more accurate in hindsight. 7/11/2016 If I could sum up my thoughts about this book, it would just be, "Oh." Honestly, very underwh...

    poetry or basic tumblr posts? ...

    maybe these poems are just words randomly separated by hitting enter or maybe I just don't get poetry trigger warnings: rape, abuse ...

    lol started this forever ago & just now finished it! didn't love this one as much as i was hoping to, but i understand why so many connect to it. i respect the author for being so open and honest about things she's faced. ...

    I read this in a bookshop. I wanted to give it zero stars. It's not poetry. It's shamefully derivitive and doesn't employ any poetic devices except for the most cliched - and not to positive effect. Random line breaks and sentence fragments are used because it is what is expected of a ...

    While Rupi Kaur seems very passionate and while I agree with her politics, content, and message, that doesn't make this writing very good. Some of the poems are excellent and will draw you in, but mainly, they are very overrated in terms of pure quality. I see why her poems are popular...

    your poetry is almost as terrible as your love life ...

    2 stars for the beautiful thoughts. So if I write my review like this will it automatically become poetry? In my humble opinion this book is composed of extremely beautifully written lines but there are very few poems actually. what i dont understand is why ...

    2016 was a year of poetry for me. I read more poetry than I ever have before, I wrote more poetry than I knew I was capable of, and I even started performing poetry. Milk and Honey was one of the catalysts for this, written by an author from a town near me, of very similar age to me, p...

    Well that was underwhelming. I don't really like poetry that much to begin with, but I was so curious about this book after seeing so many people loving it, so I decided to give it a go. I was expecting it to be really profound and ground-breaking and it just wasn't? There were may...

    milk and honey tore through my analytical mind and burrowed deep into my ultra-sensitive soul. It slayed all my emotions, my feminist desires, and my love for vulnerable writing. I may not know a lot about poetry, but I do know a decent amount about feelings, and Rupi Kaur brought all ...

    Some people call this poetry. I call it a bunch of pretty quotes from Tumblr or Pinterest or other similar site. The themes covered are incredibly relevant. And highly emotive which is probably why so many people connect with this collection. But in my opinion there is a differen...

    ?i am a museum full of art but you had your eyes shut? Wow. Rupi Kaur really touched me deeply with this incredibly work of art. Her words of truth and honesty are so powerful and so full of emotion, I can't imagine anyone's eyes staying dry while reading it. A few times, thou...

    I'm not a huge poetry person, but I just had to buy this book after hearing so many people talking about it. It didn't disappoint in anyway. The poetry in this book is so raw and beautiful that I related to so many that I kept going back to reread my favorites and highlight and tab the...

    I have never loved a collection of poetry more in my entire life. ...

    Breathtaking - Brutal - Beautiful Rupi Kaur's poetry is unlike traditional poetry. For one thing - this small book feels like a graphic poetry novel. Many of the pages had a familiar 'looking-style' which short poems have....but with the delicate, simple, drawings, I forgot I was ...

    These are just simple sentences broken up with spaces. Seriously, some of them I was like, I love this! But I didn't view them as poems. They're more like simple quotes. But I get that this is a kind of poetry and people love it, but to me it's just not anything special. ...

    milk and honey makes you grateful for your love of reading because it makes you understand how powerful words can be. It fills you with peace, acceptance and joy. You know that moment when you read something and you think ?I needed years and a lot of pain to come to the same conclu...

    Maybe I am not the most apt person to give an opinion on this, but I will throw in my 2 cents anyway. First of all, I can't even remember the last time I read poetry. It is simply not that enjoyable to me. But I picked this up after seeing it on my Instagram feed a couple hundred ti...

    4.5 stars. Wow. I really didn't know what to expect when I picked up Rupi Kaur's exquisite collection of poetry and prose. Poetry is often hit or miss with me?I totally appreciate it as an art form but sometimes I just don't get it. (I'm as creative as the next person, but some...

    Some of the poetry in the book ripped a hole in my soul. ...

    love is not cruel we are cruel love is not a game we have made a game out of love I can't believe it took me so long to finally read this poetry collection, after shivering over so much of Rupi's online poetry snippets over the years, but here we are, and it was... captivating?...

    [4.5] ?you // are your own // soul mate? This collection of poetry was gorgeous! I read and reread most of the poems. I savoured them. Took as much time as I could with them. They're genuinely hard-hitting, raw, full of emotion and so meaningful. 'milk and honey' is split...

    This was good, not great. Maybe I expected more because this has been recommended so much. It is split into 4 parts (the hurting, the loving, the breaking & the healing) The hurting section was great. There was a lot about negative fatherly figures that was easy for me to relate...

    To be simply put, this isn't a book meant to be loved or raved about. It is just meant to be read. I feel as if the people giving it three stars or so went in expecting it to ravish them, thrill them but it was not meant for that. Why on earth would you seek something so much more f...

    When I was in college I used to cut quotes from magazines and tape them to my door. I would start in the center and by the end of the semester my door would be a work of art. I thought it an intense, dramatic representation of my feelings about love, beauty, and being defined by men (t...

    Breathtaking - Brutal - Beautiful Rupi Kaur's poetry is unlike traditional poetry. For one thing - this small book feels like a graphic poetry novel. Many of the pages had a familiar 'looking-style' which short poems have....but with the delicate, simple, drawings, I forgot I was ...

    These are just simple sentences broken up with spaces. Seriously, some of them I was like, I love this! But I didn't view them as poems. They're more like simple quotes. But I get that this is a kind of poetry and people love it, but to me it's just not anything special. ...

    milk and honey makes you grateful for your love of reading because it makes you understand how powerful words can be. It fills you with peace, acceptance and joy. You know that moment when you read something and you think ?I needed years and a lot of pain to come to the same conclu...

    Maybe I am not the most apt person to give an opinion on this, but I will throw in my 2 cents anyway. First of all, I can't even remember the last time I read poetry. It is simply not that enjoyable to me. But I picked this up after seeing it on my Instagram feed a couple hundred ti...

    4.5 stars. Wow. I really didn't know what to expect when I picked up Rupi Kaur's exquisite collection of poetry and prose. Poetry is often hit or miss with me?I totally appreciate it as an art form but sometimes I just don't get it. (I'm as creative as the next person, but some...

    Some of the poetry in the book ripped a hole in my soul. ...

    love is not cruel we are cruel love is not a game we have made a game out of love I can't believe it took me so long to finally read this poetry collection, after shivering over so much of Rupi's online poetry snippets over the years, but here we are, and it was... captivating?...

    [4.5] ?you // are your own // soul mate? This collection of poetry was gorgeous! I read and reread most of the poems. I savoured them. Took as much time as I could with them. They're genuinely hard-hitting, raw, full of emotion and so meaningful. 'milk and honey' is split...

    This was good, not great. Maybe I expected more because this has been recommended so much. It is split into 4 parts (the hurting, the loving, the breaking & the healing) The hurting section was great. There was a lot about negative fatherly figures that was easy for me to relate...

    To be simply put, this isn't a book meant to be loved or raved about. It is just meant to be read. I feel as if the people giving it three stars or so went in expecting it to ravish them, thrill them but it was not meant for that. Why on earth would you seek something so much more f...

    When I was in college I used to cut quotes from magazines and tape them to my door. I would start in the center and by the end of the semester my door would be a work of art. I thought it an intense, dramatic representation of my feelings about love, beauty, and being defined by men (t...

    absolutely brilliant! nothing but love for this collection of poetry ...

    I absolutely loved this book. It brought me to tears more than once. As women we lose ourselves in other people. We forget that we are worth love and we are important too. I love how she talks about how women are taught to see themselves. This book is a raw look at life, love, abuse, a...

    "How is it so easy for you to be kind to people he asked. milk and honey dripped from my lips as I answered. cause people have not been kind to me." What an amazing sad little book. Milk and honey is a collection of poems about different subjects. The author zooms...

    I read this in a bookshop. I wanted to give it zero stars. It's not poetry. It's shamefully derivitive and doesn't employ any poetic devices except for the most cliched - and not to positive effect. Random line breaks and sentence fragments are used because it is what is expected of a ...

    While Rupi Kaur seems very passionate and while I agree with her politics, content, and message, that doesn't make this writing very good. Some of the poems are excellent and will draw you in, but mainly, they are very overrated in terms of pure quality. I see why her poems are popular...

    2016 was a year of poetry for me. I read more poetry than I ever have before, I wrote more poetry than I knew I was capable of, and I even started performing poetry. Milk and Honey was one of the catalysts for this, written by an author from a town near me, of very similar age to me, p...

    4.5 stars. Wow. I really didn't know what to expect when I picked up Rupi Kaur's exquisite collection of poetry and prose. Poetry is often hit or miss with me?I totally appreciate it as an art form but sometimes I just don't get it. (I'm as creative as the next person, but some...

    Some of the poetry in the book ripped a hole in my soul. ...

    love is not cruel we are cruel love is not a game we have made a game out of love I can't believe it took me so long to finally read this poetry collection, after shivering over so much of Rupi's online poetry snippets over the years, but here we are, and it was... captivating?...

    [4.5] ?you // are your own // soul mate? This collection of poetry was gorgeous! I read and reread most of the poems. I savoured them. Took as much time as I could with them. They're genuinely hard-hitting, raw, full of emotion and so meaningful. 'milk and honey' is split...

    lol started this forever ago & just now finished it! didn't love this one as much as i was hoping to, but i understand why so many connect to it. i respect the author for being so open and honest about things she's faced. ...

    I read this in a bookshop. I wanted to give it zero stars. It's not poetry. It's shamefully derivitive and doesn't employ any poetic devices except for the most cliched - and not to positive effect. Random line breaks and sentence fragments are used because it is what is expected of a ...

    While Rupi Kaur seems very passionate and while I agree with her politics, content, and message, that doesn't make this writing very good. Some of the poems are excellent and will draw you in, but mainly, they are very overrated in terms of pure quality. I see why her poems are popular...

    2016 was a year of poetry for me. I read more poetry than I ever have before, I wrote more poetry than I knew I was capable of, and I even started performing poetry. Milk and Honey was one of the catalysts for this, written by an author from a town near me, of very similar age to me, p...

    milk and honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. About the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. It is split into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose. It?s difficult trying to review this because every poem is extremel...

    Well that was underwhelming. I don't really like poetry that much to begin with, but I was so curious about this book after seeing so many people loving it, so I decided to give it a go. I was expecting it to be really profound and ground-breaking and it just wasn't? There were may...

    milk and honey tore through my analytical mind and burrowed deep into my ultra-sensitive soul. It slayed all my emotions, my feminist desires, and my love for vulnerable writing. I may not know a lot about poetry, but I do know a decent amount about feelings, and Rupi Kaur brought all ...

    Some people call this poetry. I call it a bunch of pretty quotes from Tumblr or Pinterest or other similar site. The themes covered are incredibly relevant. And highly emotive which is probably why so many people connect with this collection. But in my opinion there is a differen...

    ?i am a museum full of art but you had your eyes shut? Wow. Rupi Kaur really touched me deeply with this incredibly work of art. Her words of truth and honesty are so powerful and so full of emotion, I can't imagine anyone's eyes staying dry while reading it. A few times, thou...

    I'm not a huge poetry person, but I just had to buy this book after hearing so many people talking about it. It didn't disappoint in anyway. The poetry in this book is so raw and beautiful that I related to so many that I kept going back to reread my favorites and highlight and tab the...

    This was good, not great. Maybe I expected more because this has been recommended so much. It is split into 4 parts (the hurting, the loving, the breaking & the healing) The hurting section was great. There was a lot about negative fatherly figures that was easy for me to relate...

    To be simply put, this isn't a book meant to be loved or raved about. It is just meant to be read. I feel as if the people giving it three stars or so went in expecting it to ravish them, thrill them but it was not meant for that. Why on earth would you seek something so much more f...

    When I was in college I used to cut quotes from magazines and tape them to my door. I would start in the center and by the end of the semester my door would be a work of art. I thought it an intense, dramatic representation of my feelings about love, beauty, and being defined by men (t...

    absolutely brilliant! nothing but love for this collection of poetry ...

    I absolutely loved this book. It brought me to tears more than once. As women we lose ourselves in other people. We forget that we are worth love and we are important too. I love how she talks about how women are taught to see themselves. This book is a raw look at life, love, abuse, a...

    milk and honey tore through my analytical mind and burrowed deep into my ultra-sensitive soul. It slayed all my emotions, my feminist desires, and my love for vulnerable writing. I may not know a lot about poetry, but I do know a decent amount about feelings, and Rupi Kaur brought all ...

    Some people call this poetry. I call it a bunch of pretty quotes from Tumblr or Pinterest or other similar site. The themes covered are incredibly relevant. And highly emotive which is probably why so many people connect with this collection. But in my opinion there is a differen...

    ?i am a museum full of art but you had your eyes shut? Wow. Rupi Kaur really touched me deeply with this incredibly work of art. Her words of truth and honesty are so powerful and so full of emotion, I can't imagine anyone's eyes staying dry while reading it. A few times, thou...

    I'm not a huge poetry person, but I just had to buy this book after hearing so many people talking about it. It didn't disappoint in anyway. The poetry in this book is so raw and beautiful that I related to so many that I kept going back to reread my favorites and highlight and tab the...

    I have never loved a collection of poetry more in my entire life. ...

    Breathtaking - Brutal - Beautiful Rupi Kaur's poetry is unlike traditional poetry. For one thing - this small book feels like a graphic poetry novel. Many of the pages had a familiar 'looking-style' which short poems have....but with the delicate, simple, drawings, I forgot I was ...

    These are just simple sentences broken up with spaces. Seriously, some of them I was like, I love this! But I didn't view them as poems. They're more like simple quotes. But I get that this is a kind of poetry and people love it, but to me it's just not anything special. ...

    milk and honey makes you grateful for your love of reading because it makes you understand how powerful words can be. It fills you with peace, acceptance and joy. You know that moment when you read something and you think ?I needed years and a lot of pain to come to the same conclu...

    Maybe I am not the most apt person to give an opinion on this, but I will throw in my 2 cents anyway. First of all, I can't even remember the last time I read poetry. It is simply not that enjoyable to me. But I picked this up after seeing it on my Instagram feed a couple hundred ti...

    4.5 stars. Wow. I really didn't know what to expect when I picked up Rupi Kaur's exquisite collection of poetry and prose. Poetry is often hit or miss with me?I totally appreciate it as an art form but sometimes I just don't get it. (I'm as creative as the next person, but some...

    Some of the poetry in the book ripped a hole in my soul. ...

    love is not cruel we are cruel love is not a game we have made a game out of love I can't believe it took me so long to finally read this poetry collection, after shivering over so much of Rupi's online poetry snippets over the years, but here we are, and it was... captivating?...

    [4.5] ?you // are your own // soul mate? This collection of poetry was gorgeous! I read and reread most of the poems. I savoured them. Took as much time as I could with them. They're genuinely hard-hitting, raw, full of emotion and so meaningful. 'milk and honey' is split...

    This was good, not great. Maybe I expected more because this has been recommended so much. It is split into 4 parts (the hurting, the loving, the breaking & the healing) The hurting section was great. There was a lot about negative fatherly figures that was easy for me to relate...

    To be simply put, this isn't a book meant to be loved or raved about. It is just meant to be read. I feel as if the people giving it three stars or so went in expecting it to ravish them, thrill them but it was not meant for that. Why on earth would you seek something so much more f...

    2/7/2017 I get likes on this review daily and for a long time i've felt like a 3-star review was too generous so I lowered it to 2 today, which is more accurate in hindsight. 7/11/2016 If I could sum up my thoughts about this book, it would just be, "Oh." Honestly, very underwh...

    poetry or basic tumblr posts? ...

    maybe these poems are just words randomly separated by hitting enter or maybe I just don't get poetry trigger warnings: rape, abuse ...

    lol started this forever ago & just now finished it! didn't love this one as much as i was hoping to, but i understand why so many connect to it. i respect the author for being so open and honest about things she's faced. ...

    I read this in a bookshop. I wanted to give it zero stars. It's not poetry. It's shamefully derivitive and doesn't employ any poetic devices except for the most cliched - and not to positive effect. Random line breaks and sentence fragments are used because it is what is expected of a ...

    While Rupi Kaur seems very passionate and while I agree with her politics, content, and message, that doesn't make this writing very good. Some of the poems are excellent and will draw you in, but mainly, they are very overrated in terms of pure quality. I see why her poems are popular...

    2016 was a year of poetry for me. I read more poetry than I ever have before, I wrote more poetry than I knew I was capable of, and I even started performing poetry. Milk and Honey was one of the catalysts for this, written by an author from a town near me, of very similar age to me, p...
