With the help of your friends, you can get through just about anything!
This is a touching read of friendship, loss, and heartache, but most importantly the strength to finding oneself and move on.
Told through the perspective of four very different and distinct voices. You are taken on a journey as they find their inner strengths to pick up the pieces of their lives and move forward.
The book club always serving as the place everyone can let their walls down and be open and honest with each other and themselves.
I felt every character was well developed and enjoyed each perspective equally.
Wendy Wax has written a touching novel about life and love that every reader will connect with at some level. I know I certainly did.
My only quibble with this read is I would have liked to have seen one of the main characters be a male. To see love and heartache through his eyes. Perhaps Chaz the EMT?💁🏻♀️. He would have just given the book a bit more balance (but that’s just my opinion).
Overall a highly enjoyable read that Susanne and I just flew through in only a few sittings.
Thank you to Berkley Publishing.

At the Heart of “The Break-Up Book Club” is Friendship, Support, and a Love of Books. What more could one ask for?
When life’s trials and tribulations impact several different women who attend the same book club, they can lean on each other for guidance and support. Sharing book discussions, friendship, heartache, tears, laughter, baked goods, chocolate, and wine, these ladies realize they can survive anything as long as they have each other.
I personally adored this novel and was immediately drawn into each characters’ storyline, especially that of Jasmine’s and Sara’s, whose personal strife reminded me a bit of my past. From the strength each character found within, to the strength these women drew from each other, I was all in, cheering from the sidelines.
My favorite part of this novel (besides the friendships, which I loved) was “Between the Covers” – the book store frequented by the book club members. It sounded absolutely fabulous and made me wish I could visit and attend the book club with Jasmine, Erin, Judith, Sara, Chaz, and all of the other characters in this book.
“The Break-Up Book Club” is a well-rounded character-driven novel that stole my heart. I highly recommend it for those who love contemporary and/or women’s fiction.
This was a buddy read with Kaceey that we both enjoyed.
