Such a great exploration into love, loss, trauma, and healing. This book deserves to be read in one sitting and deserves to be read by all women. All women deserve to hear they are extraordinary and to see themselves through the pages of this book.
Haven‘t been able to read the past two days because of a killer migraine that won‘t go away. I went to sleep with it and woke up with it. I still managed to clean my house, but my 2y/o has been extra terrible today on top of everything. We‘re gonna be iced in tomorrow so I hope my head feels better so I can enjoy my snow day with a good book. Send me some positive vibes.. 😔😩
Revisiting some Rupi Kaur to help soothe my soul. I read it years ago and didn‘t really get it but now I do. I guess you have to be in certain headspace to feel it.
Milk and honey is a book of personal flaws. It touches deep into your personal life and heals what you didn‘t know was damaged. The poems listed inside the book are personal, and imperfect which makes the book stronger in the message being sent throughout. It helps your flaws resurrect as beauty and opens your eyes to what may be hidden under a persons skin.
1. Haruki Murakami, Wilkie Collins, Neil Gaiman
2. Hmm... 🤔 I'd say Hiraku Makimura (in Dance Dance Dance by Haruki Murakami) - an unsuccessful overrated writer character... 😆 Honi soit qui mal y pense...
3. Tagged. Saw it today when shopping for #jolabokaflodswap and #littlechristmasswap and bought it immediately. Discovered it on here earlier this year... Typical #blameitonlitsy buy... ⬇
Quick read. Although some people do not agree that this is poetry i am fine with whatever it is.This book consists of the hurting, the loving, the breaking and the healing.
What touches me most is that “Every time you tell your daughter you yell at her out of love you teach her to confuse anger with kindness which seems like a good idea till she grows up to trust men who hurt her cause they look so much like you” from the hurting.
4 stars out of 5
This has been the hardest part of leaving behind my old life and losing my independence.
I'm hoping one day I will look back from a position of success and be able to give back to my friends and family who helped me when I fell.
I don't know what that "Success" will look like yet, but one day I hope to look back on all these struggles and be proud again ❤
Second time round for this book. Still great, but the audio does sound a bit more sensual/sexual for work setting it might just be in how she reads it with some heavy breathing and long drawn out sentences. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Thank you so much for the beautiful book sleeve @caroline2 - I love it. Perfect size for my bag - I'm definitely going to use this a lot (when we're allowed to go places again!) I love the fabric. And thank you for the book as well - really kind of you. ❤️
This collection for me, felt more like a collection of prose but I think that of most modern poetry lately, but there were pieces in this book that reminded me too much of what I've written about in my journals, so for me, this collection was like reliving a moment.
A bit angsty, loving, strong, naive, bold, and young - there's a bit of everything for different readers.
