Now on audio! Rupi Kaur reads milk and honey, her New York Times bestselling collection of poetry and prose about survival, the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity.

The book is divided into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose. Deals with a different pain. Heals a different heartache. milk and honey takes listeners 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.


we’ve been arguing more than we ought to. about things neither of us remember or care about cause that’s how we avoid the bigger questions. instead of asking why we don’t say i love you to one another...

Milk and Honey was a wonderful read for me and I loved every bit of it. I like that it breaks down in four processes of healing yourself such as The hurting, The loving, The breaking and the healing. The book is very inspiring and makes me want to continue to write and also grow as a women.

Milk and Honey was OK, although it did make me wonder whether there was too much unfiltered truth in there. It was good light reading, but one that I would think twice before recommending to parents or siblings.

self help, amazing books, thought provoking...More

Rupi Kaur has a straight forward yet clever way with words that doesn't leave people confused about each meaning behind her poetry. Poetry is all about evoking feeling and Rupi manages to stir deep emotion in her readers through ranges of different topics in life that may seem difficult but through discussing them, lose their sting. From topics of abuse recovery to self love she will carry your heart away to finding a version of yourself you always thought would have to stay silent. She is no shallow poet and her words will change your heart if you first give her words a chance.
