milk and honey

milk and honey by rupi kaur

This is one of those books that everyone has heard about even if they haven’t read it yet. It looks like a book but it is a collection of poems and prose’ and actually became a #1 New York Times Bestseller.

Without giving so many details away, the book is about hurt, love, loss, and healing. It discusses personal experiences and emotions that each and every one of us can relate to. Whether it is abuse, neglect, pain, heartache, betrayal, happiness, confidence, femininity, adornment, it is something I would highly recommend everyone to read at least once in their life.

It may make you cry, it may make you take a few moments to meditate on and it may make you blush but if you are open minded to reading a real and raw type of book, this book is for you.

If you have Amazon Prime, you may be able to download it free of charge and if you are like me and need the physical book, you can get a copy here.

Here is one of my favorite excerpts from milk and honey:

With love,

Everything Everything


Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon

Before this novel was even announced to be a major motion picture, two very good friends recommended that I read this book so I finally got around to it and completed it in one day.

I give it 4/5 stars because of the great details Nicola Yoon put into this story of innocence, first loves, first kiss, first everything really.
It also made me realize how much mothers need us even as we age and how some times it is almost unbearable to let us go.

I really liked that this book and the ending were very realistic. Everything was believable and that was my favorite part of this book without spoiling it for you all.

As I type my review, I am getting ready for date night where my boyfriend will be accompanying me to watch the movie on it’s opening night.

If you read or watch the movie, let me know what you think!
