3. Blooming in Progress by Laura A. Lawson

Book Description:

"All two years’ worth of pain, of struggling to keep moving forward but always taking too many steps backwards and falling back into the traps of negativity, of heart break, of not being my true self. Until I decided it was time to stop making a mistake become a decision, until I decided it was time to be better, to become a better woman for myself because I didn’t like who I was becoming. Broken into parts, you will come to understand parts of what I felt in the two years after I got my heart broken by the man I loved, and how that led to more than that feeling of heart brokenness."

4. Lavender by Michelle Nguyen

Book Description:

Lavender is a beautiful collection of modern prose and poetry about the human journey through emotion as the author has experienced or observed it. It focuses primarily on romance, often from the perspective of someone who is also dealing with anxiety, depression, or self-doubt.

As humans we may feel too much at times. Lavender, with healing properties in addition to its soothing color and scent, represents that calm resilience in each one of us that allows us to continue to grow throughout this emotional journey, and appreciate every moment of it.

"We ache. We hope. We want. We love."
