The Lover's Dictionary - David Levithan
The Lovers Dictionary has a unique approach. It narrator retells the ups and downs of his relationship through dictionary entries. The events are told in alphabetical order instead of when the events happened chronologically.

We are told of first dates, past relationships, infidelity, alcohol abuse, unease, sleepless nights, dates, fear of flying, broken families, deaths, internet dating and many more events.

Even though the book is not written like the ones you and i read everyday, you are still left with the same emotions and even find yourself feeling the same ones the narrator is. I felt happy, giddy, angry, disappointed, and hurt.

Do not take this book as a guide or as a book one reads while suffering a broken heart. Read it and enjoy it for what it is.
