A few posts ago I mentions writing something about my current reads. I am excited to do this because it may be another way that we can build a community for us grieving our loved ones. Like I mentioned in my last post I want this community to break through the typical stereotypes of grief. One of my favorite ways to learn is through reading. I bought a lot of books on grief, I am even had some beautiful friends send me a book. (My whole heart thanks you two for this lovely, inspiring book. It was such a beautiful and thoughtful gift. Thank you for being good friends to me. You know who you two are!)
The books on my grief shelf are as followed, in no particular order.
