milk and honey by Rupi Kaur
milk and honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. It is about the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. It is split into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose, deals with a different pain, heals a different heartache. milk and honey takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.
I have so many mixed feelings about this poetry collection, so this is just a mini review of my thoughts. Some of the poems were wonderful and I really enjoyed them. I enjoyed mainly the longer ones as they felt like they had some substance? idk.

Just a really short review for today! Have you read this book? What were your thoughts?
