          This book holds a selection of poems of all different sizes that hit core subjects. Abuse, love and breakup, this is a page turner! I read it in the space of 20mins, but I read over it every few weeks and it tells me something different each time.

              Powerful and soul-touching. Rupi made magic even with such simple use of words. As a girl of colour, I relate to a lot of the content so it really made an impact on me. :)

                  Rupi Kaur's first book, Milk and Honey is the poetry collection every woman needs on her nightstand or coffee table. Accompanied by her own sketches, the beautifully honest poems read like the everyday, collective experiences of today's modern woman. (Erin Spencer, Huffington Post) Rupi Kaur's writing echoes of artistry and wisdom which is seen in the work of those that have been writing for years. (Samira Sawlani, Media Diversified) Rupi's poetry is simple, relatable, gorgeous, and grounded in the everyday experiences of young women. (Rachel Grate, Hello Giggles) The honest words of Rupi Kaur leave you continuously wanting more as she writes with eloquence and poise. Her work will send you to past thoughts and realities you might not have known you had. (Sienna Brown, WildSpice Magazine) "A must-have poetry collection about healing and hope." (Bustle)
