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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some great poems I admit that some poems were meh, but some of them were so impactful! I really enjoyed the ones about self-love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing This is a book that even if you don't like poetry you will enjoy. It has these amazing illustrations that make the words even more realistic. A must read. Everyone should give this book a chance.

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 5 out of 5 by from Amazing. I preordered this poetry collection as soon as I found out you could. I was a huge fan of her other collection "Milk and Honey" so I had to get my hands on this one asap. I much prefer The Sun and Her Flowers over Milk and Honey. Kaur's words are simple, beautiful, and powerful. I would recommend to all women.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but no milk and honey Although I enjoyed Kaur's second instalment of poetry, I did prefer the magic of milk and honey. Some poems felt rushed and like they were put in for filler. Nonetheless, I did enjoy her words.

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 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 Deepens Within An indulgent story and gratifying follow up from 'milk and honey'. These pages of poetry and even little stories contain the most minimal amount of words, thus leaving impactful emotions and feelings. That is the power of words. The most impactful part of this new collection was from the author’s experiences, compared to 'milk and honey', where she was able to be more personal. In return, for me, I was able to relate to many of the pages that I have noted down, and I am confident that it can have the same impact for someone else. Like 'milk and honey', with references to it here and there, a story is told from the ground up. And the difference in this one was about her growth in seeing the light. Now that 'the sun and her flowers' is available, I believe Rupi Kaur aspires to do the same to the reader.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was okay There are a few poems in this book that met up to my expectation. However, I was disappointed to find that many pages only had 1-2 sentences on them. If you want to read a Rupi Kaur book, I would go with Milk & Honey! Personally, I find that one much better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money I thought I would be getting a book full of lovely poems but instead, I got a book that is mostly pictures and blank pages.
