I think it’s safe to say that we have all gone through one or two memorable break ups in our lives. I know for me, the biggest question I kept asking myself over and over again was when was it going to stop hurting?
I would gladly have sacrificed a baby goat to the gods if it meant that I would get over said break up that much sooner. With this latest book from Penguin Random House, readers are treated to that long lost remedy they have been looking for—-a breakup survival kit and humor thanks to author Amalia Andrade.
This book released December 31st, and you don’t want to miss this one! I have a giveaway for this book up on my blog which I will post in another separate post so be sure to enter if this sounds like something you might want to read!
A delightful interactive roadmap for getting over a broken heart, with quirky illustrations, song lyrics that totally get it, recipes for eating your feelings, the unique comfort of making lists, and much more
A broken heart can feel like the end of the world, but bestselling author and illustrator Amalia Andrade knows this simply isn’t true. Change is not a defeat or a surrender, but rather a promise. Because if the “love of your life” doesn’t work out, there is always a chance for something new—a new love, or a new life.
When Amalia was faced with her own heartbreak, she knew she couldn’t let herself get lost in despair. With her sunshiny outlook, electrifying energy, and unique sense of humor, she constructed the ultimate first aid kit: an interactive guide to getting over someone through reflections, recipes, and lots of ingenious ideas for transforming a negative experience into a liberating one.
In these pages, you’ll find the secret code for interpreting text-message read receipts, loving odes to Beyoncé, the ideal playlist for crying in the shower, and much, much more. You Always Change the Love of Your Life reveals the secret to mending your heart and maybe even opening it up again: in love and in lovelessness, we are never alone (summary from Goodreads).
