Book Review: The Sun and Her Flowers


From Rupi Kaur, the #1 New York Timesbestselling author of milk and honey, comes her long-awaited second collection of poetry. A vibrant and transcendent journey about growth and healing. Ancestry and honoring one’s roots. Expatriation and rising up to find a home within yourself.

Divided into five chapters and illustrated by Kaur, the sun and her flowers is a journey of wilting, falling, rooting, rising, and blooming. A celebration of love in all its forms.

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
must wilt
in order to bloom

Book Review: Milk and Honey

Star Rating: 4 Stars

My Review:

If you liked Milk and Honey, you’ll like The Sun and Her Flowers.

The writing is very similar, focusing on Kaur’s experiences, as woman, as an immigrant, etc.

I actually liked The Sun and Her Flowers better, because it flowed better thematically.

I will say, the ones about her mother made me cry.

There’s not really much more to say.
