Book Review: To Water Her Garden: A journey of self-discovery



5/5 stars


"Sometimes I feel so alone in this world. I don’t feel heard. I don’t  feel appreciated. I don’t feel seen. I engage in self‐pity, thinking  my insecurities are all that I am. But I am not alone..."


This statement rings true for so many people, myself included.


Samira Mahmoodi's To Water Her Garden: A journey of self-discovery is a collection of confessional poetry that revolves around her own journey of healing, acceptance, and personal self-discovery.


Mahmoodi's writing is raw, emotional, and takes you on a journey where you soon realize your own self-discovery. It's not only a book of Mahmoodi's own experiences, but it's also a guide for people to find their own healing and acceptance through any hardships they may be going through in their life.


I found myself reflecting and relating to a number of poems in this collection, and it left me with a sense of courage to face my own struggles and and find a sense of peace and self-love within myself. I will definitely be recommending this book!


I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
