Books That'll Break Your Heart {But You'll Like It}

Here at Spiral, we're quite partial to books that hurt our feelings. We should probably unpack that with a therapist, but for now, enjoy this list of heartbreaking reads. All titles are linked for easy shopping or for making your library list! If you'd rather steal our work as booksellers and go to Amazon to save $2, consider yourself hexed <3 :-)
