Back to School


Happy Back to School Everyone!


Wait a second… summer’s over already? I can’t believe that it’s already time to say goodbye to sleep-ins and campfires and say hello to late-bells and homework.


As soon as the school year starts, I find myself with less and less time for reading things I actually like. Between math and science textbooks and some challenging books assigned in english class, I find myself missing my summer reading list and all the time I had to complete it. Because it can be so hard to find free time to dedicate to long reads during the school year, I like to find shorter and “easier” books that I can pick up and put down in between studying and other commitments. One book that is perfect for this is Milk & Honey by Rupi Kaur.

One of my favourite reads of all time, Milk & Honey is a powerful book by Canadian poet, Rupi Kaur. A collection of short poems about love, loss, and healing, you’re guaranteed to devour this book in no time and be left hungry for more. Not only is the book written in a way that allows you to finish and enjoy it through a busy schedule, it is also beautifully illustrated by Kaur and absolutely entrancing.


Already read Milk & Honey? Rupi Kaur’s new book, “The Sun and Her Flowers” is set to release October 3rd. Get excited!  I recommend Milk & Honey for a back to school read, and hope everyone has a great September.
