Reading is one of those warranted distractions that relieve us of our daily rituals, whether it’s fiction or fact. From the last book in an iconic soap operatic tale to the true struggles of one man’s fight for acceptance and another about a local community leader who changed the queerness of our city, these three works are worthy of a read.

It’s been seven years since my girlfriend ended our relationship and I still wrestle with it every day. We were together for about a year and a half and for me it was pure bliss. I had never felt so happy and in love in my life. I’ve tried dating a handful of times but no one comes close to her and I just don’t feel as excited about anyone I’ve met since. I felt so incredibly lucky to have someone as beautiful and charming as her and fear no one will ever come along that brings me the same joy. My friends have tired of hearing about her and have encouraged me to turn the page. How do I let this go?
