Book Review : The Sun & Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur

After the successful distribution of Rupi Kaur’s Milk and Honey, she continued with her poetry collection and added another book ‘The sun and her flowers’  to it. Like any other, Rupi Kaur’s poetry book is divided into 5 sections. Wilting, falling, rooting, rising, and blooming. As these names suggest Rupi is talking about a flower here, from its journey to wilting, falling off its root , then rooting again and rising and finally blooming. This book is a celebration of love in all its forms.

The ‘The sun and her flowers’  is a journey of growth ,healing and also self-love. Rupi Kaur is known to cover sensitive topics which other poets usually don’t talk about and so does this book hits you right into the feels.

I loved the talk of girl love, self- love , representation , feminism & rape culture and of course Rupi Kaur delivers it all in a beautiful choice of words.

Overall, it was a good read and we can say that Rupi Kaur has rightfully earned her place among the top poets of this era. Personally, the impact I had from this book is influential as it touched my heart and soul. I would personally  recommend this book to everyone  especially young girls.
