5 Must-Read Books On Different Kinds Of Love

1. It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

You know a book is going to make you feel things when the synopsis starts like this… “Sometimes the one who loves you the most is the one who hurts you the most.” Although, It Ends With Us was first published in 2016, the book became the talk of town only last year. Based on the author’s relationship between her parents, this love saga is gut wrenching, raw and vulnerable. A fair share of warning, the book has episodes of domestic abuse. The novel explores the relationship between Lily, who has moved to Boston to start a flower shop and Ryle Kincaid, a neurosurgeon. Sparks fly, and the two start a relationship and everything seems magical, to a point where it seems too good to be true. As Lily and Ryle navigate their relationship, things take a turn when suddenly Lily’s first love, Atlas reappears in her life. The novel had me thinking, it made me laugh, it made cry and it also made me angry but my biggest takeaway from this book was that there’s nothing more powerful than loving yourself.  

Note – This book celebrates that kind of love where you put yourself first.
