The Sun & Her Flowers
The long anticipated release after best-selling Milk and Honey, Rupi Kaur injects raw emotion into short emphatic bursts of poetry, candidly focusing on the love in all its different forms – even those most undesirable. From ‘wilting’ and ‘falling’, to ‘rising’ and ‘blooming’, The Sun & Her Flowers is a breath of fresh air, embracing all of our emotions and reinforcing that it is ok not to be ok, and self-acceptance is integral. Filled with illustrations by Kaur herself, this poignant masterpiece is a must-read.

Gracing shelves in April this year, former editor of Cosmopolitan Sarah Wilson’s candid take on anxiety offers an alternative perspective infused with appropriate humour. Tackling the taboo subject, Wilson seeks to normalise the issue, questioning whether we can rework this complex and life altering illness into something of beauty. The antithesis of the typical coping book, Wilson brings a fresh approach to an important subject, and we love it.
