The best poetry volume I've read since Cohen's Book of Longing. I nearly shouted at the words on the page to stop telling me about my life, that it didn't know anything about me - but of course it did. And if that's not enough to convince you, Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine is mad about this book, too. ~ Reviewed by Katelynne Shimkus

InstaPoetry in Motion

It began as a game between my co-worker and I: who could be the first to snag a copy of Rupi Kaur’s milk & honey? Every day two books would come in, and immediately two books would be snapped up by customers. We asked ourselves, who was this new poet no one had heard of , with her books flying off the shelves? When was the last time a book of poetry had been a bestseller, even in the hayday of our greatest writers?  As of 9/8/17, milk & honey had more than 89K ratings on GoodReads and over 10,000 reviews, averaging to a 4.26 out of 5-start rating. The book surpassed one million sold copies only one year past its publication date.In January 2017, it reached #1 on the New York Times list, and remained on the trade paperback bestseller list for 41 consecutive weeks. Bustle called it "Essential Reading" echoing The Huffington Post's article titled "The Poet Every Woman Needs to Read".

"And eternally the book opens
Here, as if it's the only part
I must know. From the parting moment
The unreturning years haven't departed."


Aptly named. Akhmatova's poems have all the terrifying power of an oncoming storm. For a long time, 'Requiem' was not written down or published, only spoken; such was its force. You will hear thunder as you read. ~ Reviewed by Katelynne Shimkus

If you've ever benefited from reading Allie Brosh's Hyperbole and a Half and her Two-Parter on Depression, this is a more poetic, less humorous, equally vivid journey through the peaks and valleys of battling with despair. ~ Reviewed by Katelynne Shimkus
