The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur

The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur is a book of poetry. You may know the author from when she wrote her bestselling book, Milk and Honey. When reading, her (usually) small pieces are separated into various sections: loss, love, growth, heartbreak, abuse–you name it and she has probably written about it. This particular aspect of her writing makes her books so relatable because almost anyone from her audience can hone in and understand on such an emotional and personal level.

Overall, it’s definitely not a book you want to read when you’re in a room full of people. The writing takes patience to comprehend, and personally I prefer to read its contents in the comfort of my own home. At times, the book can sometimes become a downer when you’re reading and struggling to get through some of the more depressing sections but come time when you do reach the end, she always finds the light at the end of the tunnel and gives hope. Always hope. Never expect anything less out of her. Overall, brilliance. Therefore, I would give her a humble 4/5 stars.

“You do not just wake up and become the butterfly – growth is a process.” – Rupi Kaur
