The 12 Days of Books: Book 6
“if you were born with the weakness to fall you were born with the strength to rise”
― Rupi Kaur,
Each and every time I read the words of Rupi Kaur, I get goosebumps. I get inspired. I get a newfound sense of strength and purpose that starts at my toes and goes to my head and radiates to my core.
milk and honey, rupi kaur’s debut collection of poetry and prose, is a #1 new york times bestseller.
‘milk and honey’ is the experience of violence. abuse. love. loss. femininity. the book is divided into four chapters. 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.
Here’s what I say: Buy it. Read it. Internalize it. Revel in it. Let yourself dream and let yourself dare, and let yourself cry, and let yourself imagine. For life isn’t about a pretty package with a shiny bow – life’s about the ups and downs and ebbs and flows – and milk and honey does all that and more.
It’s perfect for any words lover, a poetry lover, and bibliophiles.
