Books to Read When Going Through a Heartbreak 💔

What’s up readers? It’s the 17th day of Blogtober! If you don’t know what Blogtober is, it is a series I am conducting that starts from the first of October wherein I post on my blog everyday until Halloween. 🎃📚🍁📖🍃🍂❤


We’ve all been through some heartbreaking encounters in our lives, especially in the love department. If you haven’t then that’s great! Lucky you. But if your heart has been played, broken, or shattered, then you are not alone.

Sometimes when we get our hearts broken, we only focus on how we are feeling and tend to ignore the people around us and we end up feeling so alone. We forget that there are other people out there who are experiencing the same heartbreak. We torture ourselves with endless whys and could have beens instead of accepting and letting go. 

Moving on is hard, it’s never easy so I’ve compiled a list of books to read while going through a heartbreak to remind you that you are not alone in this endeavor. That the end of your relationship is not the end of you, it is just the beginning of something new. 



1. Breaking Up Is Hard to Do But You Could Have Done Better by Hilary Campbell

Anonymous break up stories from men and women, old and young, serious and silly and the cartoons that inspired them. Author and artist Hilary Campbell turns the painful into the hilarious, validating emotions from forgotten middle school tragedies to relationships that ended only hours ago.


2.  Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

A celebrated writer’s irresistible, candid, and eloquent account of her pursuit of worldly pleasure, spiritual devotion, and what she really wanted out of life.


Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned thirty, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She had everything an educated, ambitious American woman was supposed to want—a husband, a house, a successful career. But instead of feeling happy and fulfilled, she was consumed with panic, grief, and confusion. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be.


To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. In order to give herself the time and space to find out who she really was and what she really wanted, she got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world—all alone. Eat, Pray, Love is the absorbing chronicle of that year. Her aim was to visit three places where she could examine one aspect of her own nature set against the backdrop of a culture that has traditionally done that one thing very well. In Rome, she studied the art of pleasure, learning to speak Italian and gaining the twenty-three happiest pounds of her life. India was for the art of devotion, and with the help of a native guru and a surprisingly wise cowboy from Texas, she embarked on four uninterrupted months of spiritual exploration. In Bali, she studied the art of balance between worldly enjoyment and divine transcendence. She became the pupil of an elderly medicine man and also fell in love the best way—unexpectedly. 


3. Stag’s Leap by Sharon Olds

In this wise and intimate new book, Sharon Olds tells the story of a divorce, embracing strands of love, sex, sorrow, memory, and new freedom.


As she carries us through the seasons when her marriage was ending, Olds opens her heart to the reader, sharing the feeling of invisibility that comes when we are no longer standing in love’s sight; the surprising physical bond that still exists between a couple during parting; the loss of everything from her husband’s smile to the set of his hip; the radical change in her sense of place in the world. Olds is naked before us, curious and brave and even generous toward the man who was her mate for thirty years and who now loves another woman. As she writes in the remarkable “Stag’s Leap,” “When anyone escapes, my heart / leaps up.  Even when it’s I who am escaped from, / I am half on the side of the leaver.” Olds’s propulsive poetic line and the magic of her imagery are as lively as ever, and there is a new range to the music—sometimes headlong, sometimes contemplative and deep. 


4. He’s Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys by Greg Behrendt


Everyone can use a daily wake-up call.

Now in bite-size mantras, the abridged empathetic wit and wisdom of the number one New York Timesbestseller He’s Just Not That Into You will recharge and inspire your dating outlook one wake-up call at a time.

For ages women have come together over coffee, cocktails, or late-night phone chats to analyze the puzzling behavior of men. Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo are here to say that —despite good intentions— you’re wasting your time. Men are not complicated, although they’d like you to think they are. And there are no mixed messages.

He’s Just Not That Into You —based on a popular episode of Sex and the City— educates otherwise smart women on how to tell when a guy just doesn’t like them enough, so they can stop wasting time making excuses for a dead-end relationship. This book knows you’re a beautiful, smart, funny woman who deserves better.

5. Move On. Walang Forever! by Marcelo Santos III

Move On Walang Forever!

Nag-I love you siya sa’yo tapos friends lang.

Kayo na raw forever pero hanggang three months lang ang tinagal.

Hindi ka raw niya kayang saktan pero ito ka ngayon,walang humpay sa kakaiyak.

Ikaw lang daw ang mamahalin niya pero nabigla ka sa katotohanang mayroon pa pala siyang iba.

Magbabago na raw siya para sa’yo, pero pauli-ulit ka pa rin niyang sinasaktan at ikaw naman itong si Tanga, paulit-ulit na naniniwala sa mga sinasabi niya.

Payo ko sa’yo: Mag-MOVE ON ka na!

May forever pa bang naghihintay sa’yo o habang buhay ka nang bitter sa naging love life mo?

Why LA Pourquoi Paris? Book Review


What’s up readers? It’s the 14th day of Blogtober! If you don’t know what Blogtober is, it is a series I am conducting that starts from the first of October where in I post on my blog everyday until Halloween. 🎃📖🍁📚🍃🍂❤


Book Depository 

Synopsis:


Why LA, Pourquoi Paris? represents a visionary approach to a comparative study of two major, contemporary metropolises. As a long-time resident of both cities and a successful entrepreneur, author Diane Ratican curates visual pairings of Los Angeles and Paris with a newfound appreciation for their similarities, differences, and eccentricities.

Why LA, Pourquoi Paris? features full-color illustrations by famed artists Eric Giriat (Paris) and Nick Lu (Los Angeles), highlighting the Yin-Yang relationship of everyday life between two of the world’s great cities. Primarily an art book, this visual publication playfully “connects the dots” between respective architectural icons, historical legends, fashion trends, and cultural peculiarities.



My Thoughts on Why L. A. Pourquoi Paris?

An illustrated story of Los Angeles and Paris with the added benefit of historic information, and cultural trivia, Why LA, Pourquoi Paris? is a unique visual guide for visitors to Los Angeles and Paris who want to experience the cultural milieu of these two distinguished cities.

It also contains quotes that are translated from English to Français and Français to English. It’s narrated in French and has English translations after two or three paragraphs and English is italicized so it’s easy to navigate when reading. I think it’s a great book for French learners in that you can read the texts in French first and then read the English translation to check your understanding of what you just read in French.



About the Author:

Diane Ratican received her bachelor of arts degree in History and Sociology from the University of California Berkeley, and then earned her master of arts degree in Sociology and Education from UCLA. She started her career educating gifted children, and then moved on to become a risk-taking entrepreneur. This background uniquely prepared her to engage in this latest endeavor, as writer, conjuror of images, and artistic director. Her vision of art telling a story comes from her innate creativity and her talent as a collector and curator of art. To her, educating is communicating, and that is what she strives for in Why LA? Pourquoi Paris? Sharing her enchantment with, and knowledge of, both Los Angeles and Paris has become a complex project with all the depth and nuances of a richly textured tapestry. Her drive is what has navigated her through this process.

Ratican approached this distinctive book just as she approaches all of life’s challenges: with passion, tenacity, attention to detail, drive, and a joyful exuberance to create something inimitable and meaningful. Ratican is a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, and she lives in Pasadena, California.

Favorite Lines From The Five People You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom


What’s up readers? It’s the 13th day of Blogtober! If you don’t know what Blogtober is, it is a series I am conducting that starts from the first of October where in I post on my blog eveyday until Halloween. 🎃📖📚🍁🍃🍂❤😄



No life is a waste. The only time we waste is  the time we spend thinking that we are alone. 



Scenery without solace is meaningless. 



Sometimes when you sacrifice something precious, you’re not really losing it. You’re just passing it on to someone else. 


Fairness does not govern life and death. If it did, no good person would ever die young.



Youth, like pristine glass, absorbs the prints of its handlers. 



Strangers are just family you have yet to come to know.


In order to move on, you must understand why you felt what you did, and why you no longer need to feel it.
