 10/10 – Read this book right now!

Milk and HoneyMilk & Honey By Rupi Kaur is a viral sensation written by Rupi Kaur, a 24-year-old Torontonian that is originally from Punjab, India. Milk and HoneyMilk & Honey By Rupi Kaur is a poetry book that’s divided into 4 Sections; The Hurting, The Love, The Breaking, and The Healing. It’s an easy read and very emotional.

The major themes include love, sexual violence, loss, and feminism. It contains poetry, prose, and drawings, riddled with the deepest, most resounding metaphors and it will give you chills.

Kaur’s writing remarkably encapsulates the rape she endured, her broken relationship with her father, past lovers, and self-awareness. Milk and Honey is her first book, but she has already been coined an Insta-Poet based on the incredible traction her poems have received on Instagram.

Milk and Honey is so relatable that it’s impossible not to think that some of these poems were written for you. For a novice author who focuses on trauma, recovery, and self-love at the tender age of 24 it is remarkable how quickly I devoured this entire book *and how many if the poems I snap chatted to friends*. It can bring a powerful perspective to the pain you have endured or overcome in life.

Please read this whether you’re in love or broken – and this book also makes for an amazing gift (I got it for my birthday!).

I am already anticipating Rupi Kaur’s future projects- which have yet to announced yet.

About The Author

Amber Adams

Amber Adams is a reformed bad bitch. After an epic meltdown shortly after college (there may have been an arrest involved...) she read "Think and Grow Rich" and decided to pivot into the Corporate world. After quitting three jobs by throwing chairs at coworkers, she was diagnosed with Manic Depression and is now living a happy and healthy life sitting on chairs instead of throwing them. She is a self-help junkie who uses humor to cope with her three drastically different sisters, her girlfriend and life in general. Amber is still definitely from an Auto City, but she also backpacked Thailand for a month once - so she has an enlightened vibe about her. But maybe that's just the meds.
