The Anatomy of a Breakup 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: While starting out at the bottom of the food chain as the overworked, unpaid intern at “M” magazine can obliterate any trace of self-esteem, anything – including bitchy bosses, temperamental photographers, rather dull but oh-so-hot male models – is a welcome balm to her pains.
Never mind that her freebie-obsessed boss treats her like an on-call, hour proxy service. Never mind, that, sometimes, when she’s had too much alcohol, male models become irresistible. Never mind that, despite having just had her heart broken, the possibility of love presents itself again.

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 Originally posted here.
The Breakup Diaries – Off the Wall
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. One of the main reasons why I enjoyed reading Diaried Breakup Diaries so much is because it’s easy to relate to Monica’s diaeies Monica had no idea that her boyfriend would decide to call it quits on their anniversary dinner date.
The Breakup Diaries
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. There were several hilarious moments within the story and all throughout everything, you’re rooting for Monica to heal her broken heart. 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. It’s also nice that Monica had friends and family who were there to support her – as with any problem, it really helps to know that other people have your back.
I also liked how The Breakup Diaries gave me a better idea of what it’s like working in a magazine publishing company. I don’t want to say too much about the book because it’s a short and sweet read, something that you can finish during a flight or an evening when you’re in the mood for something light. I think it’s fitting that my first review for is about an old favorite.
If you’ve ever experienced a breakup, then you’ll probably be able to relate to Monica as well. One thing I noticed about the new edition is that it had several typos. I don’t remember seeing those in the original edition – it’s a minor thing but I thought I’d just take note of it. I do like the new cover more than the old one: Cross-posted at The Library Mistress Bought this one 10 years ago and absent-mindedly forgot that I haven’t finished it.
Thanks to 7-Eleven’s rack, I saw this book’s 10th year edition and that instantly reminded me that I actually have this at home. A friend of mine even told me, I hoard books too much and treat them like wine, but srsly, I wanted to retort that I now plan to read all my ‘owned and unread’ books right away, if only time will permit me to.
Oh well, I just wish it won’t take 10 yea Cross-posted at The Library Mistress Bought this one 10 years ago and absent-mindedly forgot that I haven’t finished it.
Oh well, I just wish it won’t take 10 years before I read all those books I hoarded. Okay, now unto my real review. I have mixed feelings about this book. Perhaps, brsak at 23, same age as the protagonist, I find her a little bit immature for our age, child-like and very guarded.
But that didn’t stop me from reading it, it was actually well-written, you’ll just find Tagalog words in it and that might annoy you Phoebe, don’t tell me I didn’t warn you haha but by large, this book is something I’d recommend to girls who devour Chick Lits as all the aspects of everything Chick Lit is in it, but yes, it’s also too good to be true. I just find it annoying that it ended that way, I almost felt the writer and publishers took away almost three chapters and jumped to the conclusion right away.
This is a break-up diary, but if you’ll ask me if I’ll recommend this diarifs girls nursing a broken heart, I think, I won’t, I’m kind of sure about that. Nothing in this book will help you kiss your ex goodbye permanently except from the calicz chapters of the book, it will just make you feel more miserable, with the realization that some people are lucky enough to find a new job, make out with hot guys and make their dreams come true because they are heart broken.
Life is not as blissful as that. I’m glad I didn’t read this when I was 13, else I’d be programmed to believe that breakups will bring out the best in you, because coming from personal experiences that it won’t Two boys – one that ended at 9pm and the other with your guy best friend, with whom you’ve realized you could never get it on with romantically.
The Breakup Diaries by Maya O. Calica
Screw you, Monica Tanseco and your diary entries. Yes, I’ve dated two guys: One is a review friend from a distant past, we meet three years after passing the exams. What we were before, what we are now, what we capica be in the future is the Talk.
We see ourselves excelling brsak our respective fields. Ye “Since the split, you’ve gone out with: Yet alas, the date is bound to end at 8: The second is my closest guy since college, the man who supported me as we made our way to the summer classes and octoberian graduation.
We have had the most awkward date ever with a movie called Breaking Dawn 2 if u are following my twitter account, you should have known my trashtalking skills: I guess 3 years difference aid in looking at a different perspective.
Or maybe because the author mentioned this: Go for it – but give it time. Nov 19, Janus the Erudite Artist rated it really liked it Shelves: It seemed she had everything settled out for her. Until, her boyfriend broke up with her on their anniversary.
I love the lessons that have been laid out with bteak story and I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a quick and sweet read.
amya For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project www. It took me forever to finish reading this, primarily because I didn’t like the main character.
She sounded like an air head and pretty much immature halfway through the story. She was totally unrelatable. I felt like the romance part only kicked in at the latter part of the story, which was already too late.
Her Love Interest seemed a bit underdeveloped to me because he was introduced at the latter part. And that twist in the end felt like a failed attempt to make things interesting for Monica It took me forever to finish reading this, primarily because I djaries like the main character. And that twist in the end felt like a failed attempt to make things interesting for Monica.
I rated the story with 3 stars because there were some very funny moments with the people at M magazine. I’d probably rather read a story about Carla or Siobhan than Monica’s.
I mmaya liked this book. It is inspiring not only for, well, girls who are going through a break up but to girls who are in different situations. Either happy, in love or well, hopeless romantics. I really liked the message in the end of the book.
And some of the inspiring quotes that the book has given. Like how even though a guy broke up with you, everything would be okay because there would be someone who’ll treat you better-who’ll be better and who’ll make you feel like you’re home. Really n I really liked this book.
