If you’re in a dying relationship, walking away from a terrible love story, learning to put what is no longer good in the past, Ashes of Her love is the fire you need to turn the pages and start writing a new love story. The ending is just the beginning…
This is an outstanding book!!! It’s incredibly inspiring and one of my favorite books. It’s a little book of short poems. I would definitely recommend this if you’re going through a break up, or if you need a little boost in confidence with yourself.
This masterpiece creates a reminder using powerful words, that we women are worth loving but even so we don’t need a man to determine our worth! (I think it’s really important for every woman to remember this). We may be hurting now but learning to love ourselves will help us to see our relationships burned down for a reason!
Tuesdays with Morrie is The Runaway Best-Seller That Changed Millions Of Lives including Mine!! This Book is inspirational and provides the BEST LIFE CHANGING LESSONS!
I included it here in the list of Best Breakup Books To Read because, after a broken relationship, there is a need to pull yourself out of grief, rebuild yourself and remind you of the deeper and meaningful side of life!

It’s OK That You’re Not OK: Meeting Grief and Loss in a Culture That Doesn’t Understand by Megan Devine
When a painful loss or life-shattering event upends your world, here is the first thing to know: there is nothing wrong with grief. “Grief is simply love in its most wild and painful form,” says Megan Devine. “It is a natural and sane response to loss.”
So, why does our culture treat grief like a disease to be cured as quickly as possible?
In It’s OK That You’re Not OK, Megan Devine offers a profound new approach to both the experience of grief and the way we try to help others who have endured tragedy. Having experienced grief from both sides―as both a therapist and as a woman who witnessed the accidental drowning of her beloved partner―Megan writes with deep insight about the unspoken truths of loss, love, and healing. She debunks the culturally prescribed goal of returning to a normal, “happy” life, replacing it with a far healthier middle path, one that invites us to build a life alongside grief rather than seeking to overcome it.
Reflections Of A Man by Mr. Amari Soul
Reflections Of A Man is a book designed for both men and women to enhance the quality of their personal relationships. I can rave about this book all day! It’s a terrific book for every woman who tends to blame themselves for everything wrong in a relationship!
For the women, it encourages you to recognize the true value of your love, to re-evaluate your standards and to make the decision that you will no longer settle for anything less than someone who loves you, respects you, and truly makes you happy. For the men, this book will not only encourage you to learn more about the emotional needs of a woman, but it will provide you with clear insight into what a woman truly needs from you, emotionally, to be happy.
Through beautiful words of poetry, powerful quotes and advice full of wisdom, Mr. Amari Soul creates a truly enlightening experience for both men and women with Reflections Of A Man.
DON’T FORGET YOUR CROWN: Self-Love has everything to do with it by Derrick Jackson
Excerpt: Ladies, I’m not here to tell you how many secret ways you can bend over backwards to get some man to come and validate you. You’ve heard enough of that. Men, I’m not here to tell you how to attract more women in an effort to chase the fulfillment your heart yearns for but you never learned how to keep. You’ve tried that already. It did not, and still has not worked.
I’m here to tell you how to stop getting mind-screwed, toyed with, and taken for granted. It’s killing your hope in love, and likely even eating away at your sense of self. You don’t have to admit it to me, and you can hide it from your circle, but deep down, you know. Why am I so sure? Because I’ve been there before. I’ve been on both the receiving and giving end of heartbreak. I’ve been the bullshitter and the bullshitted. I, like many of you, tried everything to put myself in position where I could never get hurt, but no matter what, I failed because I was already hurting due to my lack of understanding of self-love.
In this book, I take you through not only my personal process in that journey but also the lessons I learned to help me lead millions in that same journey for themselves today. I’m not telling you it’s going to be easy, I’m just telling you that if you continue going in circles like you’ve been doing then it’s by choice because I’ve now given you the map. The rest is on you to make the necessary steps. Just don’t forget your crown!
Lastly, I sincerely think these breakup books or self-help books for healing your broken heart (whatever you want to call them) help you in getting over a breakup.
I know it’s pretty hard because I have been there, it’s not just reading books that can heal you, but it’s a process of healing and rediscovering ourselves, for which books can play a bigger role if you can act upon them! Not everything can be done but at least if you could pick some points and implement them one at a time, that can be life-changing.
I have kept this post limited to the 7 best of the best books to read after breakup that can help you! If you have any more suggestions, then put it in the comment section so that it helps others!
