THE CATASTROPHIC HISTORY OF YOU AND ME was a catastrophe for my feelings

This freaking book. I picked it up because it immediately made me think of Giselle and since I'm all about reading the things similar to my WIP (yes I know that makes me weird) I snatched it up and devoured it. And you should do the same. 

This book had me in tears. That awful pain behind your eyes, I WILL NOT CRY, kind of hurt that sneaks up on you and makes you die a little. Books that claw at my emotions like that are pretty rare but this is definitely one of them. In the best way possible. 

As Brie, the girl who literally died of a broken heart, progresses through the stages of grief, she finds that her life was not what she thought it was and her death isn't what she expected either. The range of human emotion in this book is crazy and by that I mean crazy accurate. I don't want to spoil anything so just trust me when I say you will love Brie's attitude and voice as you laugh and cry right along with her.
