Wonderful book

A very relatable & moving read, recommended it to my best friend right after I finished it in one sitting. The whole book is now dog eared with the pages that touched my soul.

Milk and honey is not what I expected.

I would have never purchased this book if I knew it was about rape! It romanticized it vividly! Reading through the first few pages my daughters came to sit with me and read along in my new "poetry" book. I threw it! I later on skimmed through the book and it doesn't get better. I will be burning it.

Not “Very Good”

Love this book, however, it said it was in “very good” condition and it was far from it. Most pages had writing and highlighting. Many pages had drawings or messages from other people on them. It’s not usable for what I bought it for and definitely not in very good condition.

Aesthetically wonderful

Modern poetry for those who don’t read modern poetry. (And those who do!) this book lays the ground work for every book of its kind. Delightfully thoughtful.

I love this book, as a teenage girl lol and the condition of it was perfect

This definitely is a book for adolescents and young adults. It’s sad, romantic, and relatable. It’s an amazing book


I enjoyed the poems and finding myself in them. I hope others will too.

A great book

the book is very relatable and honestly sad it reminds me of some of my past its great poetry it speaks very loud

very good condition and read

I loved reading the short poems, can relate to some of them.

From a 23 year old

This book is for someone who has been in a toxic relationship or has lived in a toxic household, I hope they read this book & realize their worth, you are much more then someone who keeps hurting you.

Such a powerful read

I absolutely loved this book. Rupi's poetry speaks to the soul and I think everyone can find something to connect to within her writing.



It is her thoughts

To those who kept saying its just a bunch of her thoughts, did you read the first page where she explains the book? To those trying to decide if they should get this book, it's not for everyone but it has some good words for thought. I personally found it worth it

Worth reading!!!

Very cute book about the difficulties of being a women. I found a lot of inspiration while reading this. Know I understand why this book was so hyped up. Definitely worth a quick read!!

Not as good as people made it out to be.

It seemed more like a journal with random scribbled thoughts. Disappointed.


I liked her second book more than this one because it didn't leave me thinking after reading this book. Some pages were just sayings that are spaced out like this but i recommend reading the sun and her flowers


I fell in love with it. Totally one of my new favorite books now.
