I couldn't finish this book

So sorry to this that love this book. I didn't like anything about it. I was actually excited to read it as the title led me to believe that it would be a love story in poems. Note to self, read more reviews and a synopsis before purchasing.

MILK & HONEY BLENDED WELL

Rupi Kaur is my favorite poetry writer, she's real balm for the Soul !
Just a little teaser below:

- you might not have been my first love
but you were the love that made
all the other loves irrelevant -

Written & Narrated by Rupi Kaur, very much enjoyable pace & voice.

Not my thing

Some of this is interesting but didn’t relate to most and generally found it a bit of an immature view of emotions/relationships - although nice general message about self love

AMAZING!!! You need to give it a chance.

First of all can I say that rupi Kaurs voice is so soothing that It lulled me to sleep even though I was supposed to be cleaning.

The way her words flow awaken me to a different frequency. Her words cut deep and make you feel the pain and sometimes even the numbness the words portray. Every emotion that was spoken I felt it stir within me. There is fire in her words.

I enjoyed every single moment of this audio book, and I am grateful that this is the first audiobook I have listened to. I have definitely found a new love.

I can't wait to listen to it once more. While actually cleaning this time. I RECCOMEND COMPLETELY!!!!
