A few months ago I posted my opinion on milk and honey which was rupi kaurs first poetry book and I was absolutely in love with it..
I loved in so much that when she released that she was coming out with another book, I jumped at the chance and pre-ordered it.
On the back of the book it says,
this is the recipe of life
said my mother
as she held me in her arms as i wept
think of those flowers you plant
in the garden each year
they will teach you
that people too
in order to bloom
I literally just finished reading it today & I have an opinion on it.
First thing I liked about this book was that it was 248 pages which I am pretty sure is more then milk and honey.
Second, I found that the poems were a bit longer as well which gave me more to read.
But to be honest, I liked the vibe of milk and honey more. I don’t know what it is about milk and honey but that book is my first love when it comes to poetry books.
I will say that the sun and her flowers is an amazing read but I do prefer one over the other, but again that’s just me.
I have been posting A LOT of my favourite poems on my snapchat but I don’t want to ruin the book for you guys here, all I can really say is it is an amazing read and I recommend it, but of course you need to read milk and honey first.
Side note: I bought 4 poetry books so I definitely will be reviewing all of them once I read them.
