From Rupi Kaur, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of milk and honey, comes her long-awaited second collection of poetry. A vibrant and transcendent journey about growth and healing. Ancestry and honoring one’s roots. Expatriation and rising up to find a home within yourself.

Divided into five chapters and illustrated by Kaur, the sun and her flowers is a journey of wilting, falling, rooting, rising, and blooming. A celebration of love in all its forms.

this is the recipe of life
said my mother
as she held me in her arms as i wept
think of those flowers you plant
in the garden each year
they will teach you
that people too
must wilt
fall
root
rise
in order to bloom

"Kaur writes about love, sex, rejection and relationships, all topics common on social media, but she also deals with darker material: abuse, beauty standards, racism...short confessional pieces with erratic line breaks to share hard-won truths...(this is) writing that contains bravery, beauty and wisdom." - The Guardian
Rupi Kaur is a #1 New York Times bestselling author and illustrator of two collections of poetry. She started drawing at the age of five when her mother handed her a paintbrush and said—draw your heart out. Rupi views her life as an exploration of that artistic journey.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting and Emotional Read I read this shortly after reading Milk and Honey. This book was just as good, though there was a lengthy section more about her culture and her family which was difficult to relate to, but I found it incredibly interesting and eye opening. I saw her perform this book live and it was incredible to hear the passion and emotion behind it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay but.. I just bought this as it was on sale and also I was intrigued by some posts from internet(the hype), upon reading, it was not too exciting, but given it is a poetry book and each poem is short and kinda just leave you feeling not altogether after reading.. maybe I'm not crazy over poems but the poems are very everyday feeling that people can relate (or even write themselves) but the author puts in a more poetic form.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful!!! I have just started reading The Sun and her Flowers and it is wonderful. The poetic nature along with the images are simplistic in nature but the message is powerful and there is much meaning beyond the words in the book. This is why I love poetry, it can be interpreted in so many ways depending on what you may be feeling for that day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Book I was over all happy that Rupi decided to write a sequel to her book but truthfully, it wasn't as good as the first one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All the feels Rupi Kaur is so relatable, this book took me on an emotional roller coaster ride. My favourite poems were about heartbreak, self-love, female empowerment and immigration. She mentions how hard her immigrant parents worked to raise her and her siblings and discusses everything that they left behind. “perhaps we are all immigrants trading one home for another first we leave the womb for air then the suburbs for the filthy city in search of a better life some of us just happen to leave entire countries” So many poems hit home and I felt like crying more than once. “i made change after change on the road to perfection but when i finally felt beautiful enough their definition of beauty suddenly changed what if there is no fish line and in an attempt to keep up i lose the gifts i was born with for a beauty so insecure it can’t commit to itself -the lies they sell" It really reads like a story, with the book being split into five sections: wilting, falling, rooting, rising and blooming. The last one felt like the perfect conclusion: "there is nothing left to worry about the sun and her flowers are here"

Date published: 2017-11-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I read it all in one sitting...then I read the most outstanding parts to my mother and cried. I've never read anything about Rupi, the book is split into 5 sections and the moment I realized this was some of the most person pieces of writing I've come across I had to know more. She takes you on an experience, her own and that is what sold this to me, it exemplified great honesty, she didn't hold back, at least I didn't think so. I read it and took it all in neutrally, the next day I read pieces that stood out to me the most, to my mother and I cried like the little baby it turned me into. If anything resonated with me it was that Rupi also came from a family that holds cultural expectations with pride, as did I, and with that she deepened the engraving path so many women in the public eye are trying to make more profound in today's world. She's Canadian and that's kind of cool to share with her, but most importantly she's a woman whose words in this book are ones I'll be gifting to my sisters this Christmas. I felt that it serves as a reminder to invest in yourself, now whether I completely missed the meaning of the book is one thing, but everything I got out of it and the more I'm going to unveil when I crack open the book again from time to time will definitely be worth it. Thanks for sharing, Rupi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the greats. I love Rupi Kaur's poetry. This is the kind of poetry I enjoy and the kind of poetry I aim to write. It shares messages that are otherwise often difficult to express and share. Kaur is one of the greats. Years from now when we are history and the future generations will look to see what life was like for some of us they will turn to Kaur to gain an understanding of our life today. Kaur talks about sexuality, gender, rape culture, norms, diversity or lack thereof, and other very relevant life struggles. You do not have to be a person of colour to read this, you do not have to be a minority group or an immigrant to read this, and you do not have to identify as a woman to read this. This is something we all need to read and we all need to think about the stories Kaur illustrates through her words and sketches. We need to use this and reflect on how we can make the world a better place for all of us. Respect, kindness, tolerance, and acceptance are just the beginnings of the long journey ahead of us as a society. Well done Kaur, well done.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A bit contrived I'm just not a fan of her work. It's not especially well-written and basically serves as millennial bait.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Boring and full of teenage "shock value" This book is written from a very inexperienced, feminist "shock value" type of perspective which didn't appeal to me personally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely beautiful If you read Milk & Honey you will fall for The Sun and Her Flowers just as hard. Rupi Kaur does an amazing job of writing the truth.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not like Milk & Honey Loved Milk & Honey but mostly respect the themes Rupi brings forward in her work (gender dynamics, abuse, healing). This one, however, was disappointing and not worth all the hype; lots of one-liners and an overall feeling of Déjà Vu because it is so simple and not so original.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Once Again, YES. Rupi Kaur shares her heart so fully with her readers, her poetry is pure art.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautifull This is such a beautiful book to read. Each poem has its own unique way of touching the soul.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rupi poured out her soul in this one I am a huge fan of Rupi Kaur - as an overall person what she does and who she is inspires me and she did just that with this book ... definitely worth a read

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compliments Her Debut Book The Sun And Her Flowers is an excellent continuation from her debut book Milk And Honey. If you haven't read her first book: 1) you should 2) if you didn't, this book talks about the same topics (healing, loving, family). I would definitely recommend to my friends who need words of encouragement and enlightenment. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from stunning As someone who loved Milk & Honey, I was so glad to find out that I loved The Sun and her Flowers even more. Rupi Kaur truly went to another level with these poems and I thoroughly enjoyed how many of the poems were longer and more complex.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not that it's bad... it's neat not worth the hype, but I am appreciating something different. You can tell the author is immature and young though and that's a bit of a turn off. Still neat though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not what expected I read a lot and I mean ALOT of reviews before buying this book in stores and trust me when I say I was not expecting much from it until I got through the first 24 pages. A lot of poems stuck with me that I now get to share on my social media page as inspiration to my followers. 7 out of 10

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pablum This book is included in The Coquette's latest reading list. It's ok. If you're not all that into poetry, or you want something simple to read before sleep, it's fine. It's not that it's poorly written, it's just uninspiring just don't understand that hype.
