4. Six-Word Memoirs on Love and Heartbreak

edited by Larry Smith and Rachel Fershleiser

Entire relationships can be summarized in six sentences, or so is the premise of this collection of very short, life stories.

These all look great! Make sure not to dwell on the breakup by reading book after book. The best way for me to get over a breakup is to move on and be happy! Getting out and seeing friends and meeting people is a sure fire way to move on.
