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.
If I could sum up my thoughts about this book, it would just be, "Oh."

While Rupi Kaur seems very passionate and while I agree with her politics, content, and message, that doesn't make this writing very good.

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, powerful and...

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 maybe a dozen poem...

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 my feelings...
