This past weekend, a super exciting package arrived in the mail. Amazon Prime had my back and I was able to get my hands on The Sun and her Flowers by Ms. Rupi Kaur. I wrote a review of Milk and Honey last summer, and this fall, the sequel is here! And my oh my was it amazing.
This book SLAYED me.
Rupi Kaur is one tough lady. I love the way she is not afraid to say exactly what she means in her poetry. She is not afraid to make the reader feel uncomfortable. She is not afraid to be real.
I read this book in one day, as I did with Milk and Honey. I find with Kaur’s books I sit down, get sucked in, and can’t put the book down until I’ve finished reading. This beautiful masterpiece is all about womanhood, self-acceptance, and pride.
This book is a must-read. It is absolutely worth being torn apart in your heart by the words. My personal favorite poem was the day i leave on page 106. Listen to this: “The sun will eat itself.” How does she come up with this stuff? Genius. Genius to her core.
You need to read this. There is so much more I could say, but poetry is a different experience for everyone. For so many reasons, I cannot recommend this book enough.
If you read The Sun and her Flowers, leave a comment and let me know what you think!
Thanks for reading! <3
