Break up stories are love stories…ending. Sometimes it’s a rejuvenating purge of a nasty buildup. Sometimes it’s having to let go of something that you’ve put a lot of time and emotion into building. Either way, they make amazing stories. In this month’s installment of Book Vloggin’ with Jan, Break Up Me talks to Future Totally Over It Me about the best break up novels to ail your shattered heart.
