Book- Hold Me While I Fix Myself

Author- Fathima Ashab

When Fathima released the cover of the book, I couldn’t stop staring at it and getting mesmerized.

This book is not just a collection of poems but also a collection of feelings and emotions. The writing style is so raw and beautiful that it makes you want to read those lines again and again.

I could relate to the poems in so many ways- I had flashbacks, felt some pains again, re-lived some happy memories, held back tears and also found strength, hope and self love. I have so many favorites that most of the book is underlined. The way Fathima has connected me with her words, it felt like I was there while she was writing it or she has written it for me particularly. I know I’m gonna go back to these poems again when I feel sad and they’ll calm me.

I don’t know what more to say because sometimes some things are so beautiful that you can’t find the right words to describe the feelings and emotions they stir in you.
