Book Review | Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur

Book Review: Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur

I read this composition way back in February this year. This was my first attempt in reading the genre- Poetry, and to my expectations, it did surprise me. Though it was a quick read and I finished it within an hour, it was just BEAUTIFUL.

I had read other reviews about this book and I can understand why some people have a different opinion on this. Probably they have read too mean poetry and thus expected it to be something different. But for me, as a reader of poetry for the first time (obviously after school 😛 ), it was wonderful.

eARC Review | The Chaos of Longing by K.Y. Robinson

eARC Review: The Chaos of Longing by K.Y. Robinson | Poetry of love and longing

This was my third poetry book that I read this year after Milk and Honey and Stuff I’ve Been Feeling Lately. I loved both those poetries and expected same from it, as the title seemed entruiging. I came to know about this title through poetry recommendations on NetGalley. However, it was way too different than the formers.

This poetry collection is divided into four parts: Inception, Longing, Chaos and Epiphany. The good thing about this poetry was that the author is speaking about herself in most of the parts. She is a woman of color (WoC) and we can imagine to some point that what she might have been gone through in her childhood. A few poems shows her roots and felt like raw thoughts.
