I can still remember the first time I read The Breakup Diaries a few years ago. I was still in college then and this title was my favorite out of all the Summit Books that were available at that time. After I finished reading it, I worked on convincing my girlfriends to pick it up as well so we could discuss it.
Preferably while hanging out in a cafe because Monica, the main character, is a barista. When I saw that it has been reissued, I decided to grab a new edition and read it on my flight back to Singapore from Manila. I ended up enjoying the book just as much as when I first discovered it.
Twenty-three-year-old self-proclaimed nice girl Monica Tanseco is finding out the hard way that in order to survive a breakup, you have to grow up — fast. Sure, breaking up is hard to do, but who knew it involved:. When her perfect boyfriend — college hoop star certified hottie and young hotshot eagle Itos Ongpauco — decided to call it quits, Monica, barista by day and dreamer by night, found herself stepping out from behind the coffee counter and out of her comfort zone — into the mad world of magazine publishing.
Never mind that her freebie-obsessed boss treats her like an on-call, hour proxy service. Never mind that, despite having just had her heart-broken, the possibility of love presents itself again. Monica had no idea that her boyfriend would decide to call it quits on their anniversary dinner date. Pretty harsh, noh? I felt so bad for her but what I liked about the book is that it was still fun to read even though the character was experiencing a major setback.
Her reaction to the breakup felt realistic, from wanting to get back together with her boyfriend to re-evaluating her life and seeing things in a different light.
One thing I noticed about the new edition is that it had several typos. I do like the new cover more than the old one:. This does sound like an excellent read! There are way too many books in my TBR pile and most of my books are back home in Manila. There are a couple of books that I keep rereading though. I can grab a copy the next time I go home and send it to you if you want.
I remember liking it too. Now I kind of want to read it all over again…. Alexa, you should read it again! Esguerra too. I saw that book on NBS and I kinda want to read it.. I salute Filipino authors. Pingback: Loveless. Flores Chachic's Book Nook. You are commenting using your WordPress.
