Each week I will showcase 1-2 books that I think would be fantastic reading if you're going through a certian emotion/stage in your life.
No time to start like the present, so lets get right into the gritty stuff...
Books For When You're Going Through A Break Up*-
Why I chose this book:
Now this is either going to seem like the obvious choice, or the complete opposite. "A book about someone explaining a break up? Excellent!" "A book about someone explaining a break up? I think I need not go there." And yet I will go there.
Why We Broke Up isn't a story that will weigh you down with sorrow- it's not a story that wallows in the sadness of the break up it deals with, but rather one that sees both the best and worst parts about a time of your life which you shared with someone you loved. This is a story where, in the very first page, our main character Min says the reason they broke up was because she loved Ed "too god-damn much." She loved him more than he loved her, and that's why they broke up. You may think, okay, end of story, but far from it. There's so much to this novel that inspires, that I think would help you get back onto your feet if you're really trying to move on but haven't quite been able to.
It's not for everyone, granted, but it was for me. If I ever go through a break up- nope, not 100% qualified to write this because I haven't- I'll go to this book.
"You either have the feeling. Or you don't."
*I'm thinking the when you're no longer with said person and wanting to move on, but aren't quite there yet.
