The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur
Clues to describe this book: Heartbreak, New Love, Feminism, Immigration
Review: The Sun and Her Flowers is the second book from Rupi Kaur. It’s a wonderful poetry collection that focuses on Rupi’s personal struggles and growth. I thought her first book was emotionally heartfelt, but her second book is even more captivating and inspiring. In The Sun and Her Flowers, Rupi has matured as a writer and touches upon other topics beyond abuse such as feminism, immigration, world views, family, etc. Rupi’s poetry is successfully able to describe life lessons, explain feelings that you’ve had but haven’t been able to put into words, and is able to resonate with you in a way that makes you feel empowered and strong. Overall, this is my favorite poetry book I have read so far. Not only was her book wonderful to read, but I also had the pleasure of seeing Rupi perform The Sun and Her Flowers in LA last month. The way she is able to bring her book alive is unremarkable. When she reads her poetry, it’s as if you are having a conversation with a dear friend. I would highly recommend for anyone to read this book. It’s definitely an essential to have on your bookshelf!
