As a Junior in college, I don’t get to free-read as much as I would like to. A lot of my reading consists of required and supplemental class readings. I have found myself turning to poetry as my daily genre of choice. Poetry is an easy, yet meaningful read. A book currently sitting on my nightstand is “Milk and Honey” written by Rupi Kaur.
Rupi Kaur is an Indian-Canadian poet, writer, illustrator, and performer. Kaur has become seemingly popular in the last year or two. She has been named the voice of her generation for being able to transpire so much emotion into her writing and making it relatable to many across the globe. She writes about love, pain, healing and the strength that she has built within to overcome it all. The poems are each accompanied by her own sketches. I recommend this book as well as “The Sun and Her Flowers” for your night table if you're looking for quick inspiration reads!
