GUYS! I’m so very excited to finally read Rupi Kaur’s new book. I really liked milk and honey and related to it on so many different levels. I’m not sure a lot of you guys enjoyed me breaking it up into what I liked from each chapter, so I decided to spare you guys a little bit and just want to share with you guys my favorite poems from the whole book. This one is broken up into 5 chapters! They are called wilting, falling, rooting, rising, and blooming.
So I’m going to share with you guys my top 5 favorite poems from the book itself.
Before I share the poems with you guys I’d like to talk a little bit about the book itself, I overall wasn’t that much of a fan, but that’s possibly because I prided myself on being able to relate to milk and honey in a lot of ways. A lot of the book is very heartfelt and you can just feel the hurt on every page. I can’t even begin to relate to it, but I can feel for those that went through the same thing as her. It should come with a trigger warning, but I guess that takes away from the pain cause no one gave them one.
Although most of it had something to do with something I can’t relate too, I still found some quotes that I did really like throughout it.
The first poem I liked was on page #39
I’m sure we’ve all liked someone who didn’t like us back.We couldn’t help but think they would change their mind so we shut everyone else that can be a potential boyfriend down.
The second poem that I liked could be found on page #54
Why must we think of things that have ended like we could have changed something about it? I find myself looking back on a bunch of things and the way they ended, in hopes that I could possibly change the outcome. Although everything is already said and done, with me never looking back on it.
On page #64 is where my next favorite can be found
I feel like a lot of people look to other people and blame them for stuff they should have took the blame for themselves. It’s very rare people take the blame for their own actions and try to justify that someone did something to them first or they say that someone said something to them first instead of just owning it.
The next one I enjoyed was from #82
I know I’m guilty of not taking the time to enjoy the place that I am in before I knock it down and say that it’s horrible. It’s not only just about certain places either, I noticed that I did it in life in general which I’m sure is where Rupi Kaur is getting at. I really do need to take the time out to enjoy life and the views both good and bad. I feel like once I do that I can learn to appreciate things a lot more.
The last one was from page #85
I’ve always been an introvert which is another thing you guys most likely don’t know about me. I feel like people always seen that as a bad thing in my life and I’ve even been told my an ex boyfriend that I’m going to die alone because of it ( there was another reason behind that as well but we’d get into it another day)I trust very few people and let my true self fully show to those few. I don’t like big groups because I feel like there is way to much going on for me to handle so I prefer more intimate settings with those I do hang out with. I’m getting better at being in larger groups, but I still do feel very overwhelmed in situations where I’d much rather be alone doing something that genuinely makes me happy.
Well there you guys have it, I hope you enjoy it and that you learned a little more about me. I really like doing book reviews for you guys cause it shows you more of what I’m interested in as a person than just make up and other things beauty related. While I enjoy those, I feel like me writing book reviews you guys learn a lot more about me and my view points. We can open up a whole giant conversation based on anything which is great so please do so down in the comments whether you have read this book or not.I’d like to hear from you guys.
