Okay, so this looks like a self-help book and not the kind of thing that Lovereading would feature right? Not entirely. Written by the co-author of He's Just Not That Into You and his wife (aww), this is a hilarious, yet very practical guide to getting over your ex. Even if you're part of a smug couple I'd recommend a peek for the fantastic insights as Greg and Amiira write as a team with alternating male and female perspectives. If you've ever drunk dialled, you'll be doing yourself a favour by reading this book!

Synopsis

It's Called a Break-up Because It's Broken by Greg Behrendt and Amiira Ruotola-Behrendt

He's Just Not That Into You is more than a book. It's a revolution. The phrase, coined by Behrendt for an episode of Sex and the City, has now entered the language: it features in ads, its referred to in newspaper headlines and it has spawned spin-off spoof books and more.

It's Called A Break-up Because Its Broken promises to do this and more. It will help you get over anyone and move on. Behrendt's voice is unique combining tell-it-like-it-is advice with humour and the 'guy's eye view'. The book is filled with solid advice to help you let go of your ex for example: 'It's 3 am, the bottle of wine is empty, do you really want to make that call?'

Each insightful chapter is complemented with a Q-and-A with Greg on what he's thinking, case studies, and games. Greg and Amiira tackle tough issues such as break-up sex, how not to lose your friends during a break-up, and 10 great places to cry. It's the ultimate read and reference for anyone who has ever been in a relationship.

Love books. Love reading. Love reading books. And, here's the trick. Here's a website which caters for people like me.

Ian Harvey-brown

I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.

Magda North

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

Sarah Bruch

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

Jennifer Moville

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

You'll always find what you never knew you were looking for and you're always spoilt for choice.
