Q&Q reviewers select their favourite reads from 2017

the sun and her flowers

Rupi Kaur

Andrews McMeel/Simon & Schuster

Since the runaway success of her 2015 debut, milk and honey, Rupi Kaur’s 7.1 millionstrong fan base has been anxiously awaiting the Instagram sensation’s follow-up. Her sophomore collection does not disappoint. Complete with the author’s own drawings, this longer, more confident volume offers broader thematic reach while ruminating on topics like love, family, femininity, and the line between giving of oneself and giving oneself up. Though critics may bristle at the “Instapoet” and the surge of selfproclaimed wordsmiths that have emerged on social media in her wake (many of them admittedly cringeworthy), there is no denying Kaur has become a cultural force, sparking newfound i nterest i n a genre young people aren’t notoriously passionate about. –Becky Robertson

Next Year, for sure
