Read The Pain Away With “The Little Book Of Heartbreak”

Little Book of Heartbreak


Whether you’re single, heartbroken, obsessed with Facebook stalking your crush, crying over your ex, or happily or unhappily in a relationship (come back to this article once your relationship has ended), many of us will be lovesick on Valentine’s Day. It sucks but it doesn’t have to.

Meghan Laslocky’s new book, “The Little Book of Heartbreak: Love Gone Wrong Through the Ages” is bright yellow¬† like the sun we wish we were soaking up on a beach, and since the weather sucks just as much as Valentine’s Day, we all need something to help get us through the end of the week. If you can’t afford to hire a hot male escort and eat at a really fancy restaurant where dishes are “farm-to-table” and you waiter is more attractive than your escort, maybe Laslocky’s book is the key to your troubles.

She didn’t write a book about love that preaches and tells you how you’re dating all wrong and will never find a man unless you follow 7 easy steps, but hilariously tells you how figures throughout history have lived, loved, and fallen in and out of love. She also provides you with a perfect list of diversions to keep from from letting your love-sickness take over your life (including the joy of attending a Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous meeting), and information on how to properly wallow, and attempts to answer the painful question of “How Long Will It Take?”

“The Little Book of Heartbreak” is far from an overwhelming encyclopedia and the essays are light and easily-digestible enough to be read in between tears and Sex and the City Netflix binges. Oprah loves it and maybe you’ll love it so much that you’ll become object-sexual and TLC will feature you on a reality show and all of your love worries will cease to exist. Who knows? All I know is that it’s better to read and laugh than continue to think about how single you are.
“The Little Book of Heartbreak: Love Gone Wrong Through the Ages” by Meghan Laslocky is available for sale online and bookstores everywhere.
