An Amazon Best Book of October 2017: Kaur deftly sidesteps and then punts the stereotypical sophomore slump of bestselling authors, offering a subtle yet powerful volume of poetry to her readers who have clamored for more since the debut of Milk & Honey. Split into five movements—wilting, falling, rooting, rising, blooming—Kaur’s poems glide up from the depths of heartbreak and hurt to embrace the strength and joy that can flower on the other side of hardship. Kaur workshops many of her poems through live readings, and the dedication to her craft vibrates through every phrase. Those who pressed Milk & Honey into the hands of their friends will exult in The Sun and Her Flowers, and Kaur’s expanded wisdom and scope should reel in new readers who will find much that resonates. —Adrian Liang, The Amazon Book Review

The only thing I did notice was if you are an advid reader like myself, you probably picked up a lot of similarity from other poets and works. I think we all strive for originality but sometimes it falls short.
I will saw that Rupi Kaur is not for everyone, I know people who worships the ground she walks on and other who loathe her for her writing style.
But that’s the thing about poetry, it doesn’t need to be perfect to be power.
I did actually really like this collection, just less than m&h because I found that to be more cohesive and organized, whereas this was at times a little “all over the place” within the category chapters. I also at times felt that I had read the first two chapters before somewhat in m&h and it was only once we got towards the end of chapter falling and into chapter rooting that I found the ideas new and powerful. This is not at all to say any of this is bad, but coming off m&h, some of the poems in the early chapters felt a little “young,” a little overly similar to m&h but like m&h got the better versions.
Overall, this is another awesome collection of poems by rupi kaur, I cannot recommend it enough for young (and old) women- it should pretty much be essential reading for anyone over the age of 15 or so.
