I feel that this author is overhyped and having lived through some of these experiences the poetry doesn't seem to speak to my pain. ( )

I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler-free way. Unfortunately, there is still always a risk of slight spoilers despite my best efforts. If you feel something in my review is a spoiler please let me know. Thank you.

So I am not much one for poetry, but after the second book by Rupi Kaur, I'm really coming to like them. I haven't experienced heartbreak over the loss of love in years, so most of this I know but don't feel. However, the strong poems about being a woman and about current love all speak strongly to me. I ended this book feeling uplifted. If or when I ever feel like trying some more poetry, Rupi Kaur's books will be my first stop. ( )

DNF.

Didn't bother to get too far into this one so I won't leave a rating. I wanted to give Rupi Kaur a second chance after the awful time I had reading Milk and Honey. It seemed strange for me to hate something so much when it had been received by the public with quite a bit of praise. Unfortunately, I caught on pretty quickly that this collection would be very similar.

A few of the poems had a slight impact on me- not because I found them to be successful poetry, but because the ideas shared made me think. However, most of the collection is still what I would consider tumblr quotes and scribbled drawings.

If you enjoy her work, great, but I think I've confirmed for now that Kaur just doesn't suit my taste.
