    Originally posted here.I don't get to feature Filipino fiction as often as I'd like here on the blog so it feels like a treat when I get to do so. 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 [...]

    Cross-posted at The Library MistressBought 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 [...]

    "Since the split, you've gone out with:a. 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."b. c. 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 will be in the future is the Talk. We see ourselves excelling in our respective fields. Yet alas [...]


  • Janus the Erudite Artist

    This is one of the most memorable books I’ve read. I was entirely engrossed with Monica’s life. She’s the typical girl living a simple life, happily committed and responsible. It seemed she had everything settled out for her. Until, her boyfriend broke up with her on their anniversary. That sucks! And that just where her story begins…The Break Up Diaries reminds us that there’s always a rainbow after the storm. I love the lessons that have been laid out with the story and I would highl [...]


  • Anne

    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 [...]

    This was the first book I read from Summit. Summit Books have these amazing artsy covers that I just can't resist. The thing is, those covers do pretty much a huge justice because the story is just great. The Breakup Diaries tells a story of a girl recovering from her breakup. Her way of narration is really much like what you write in a diary, thus making you feel like you're reading one. I love how she was able to cope from her heartbreak and what she did to make herself better after it. This w [...]


  • Venessaa ♡☮♫

    I really 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 [...]


  • Nicole

    My go-to read when love life is in a rough patch.


  • Carmi Hernandez

    The convenience store version of a literary classic. Still love this tho, a light read but left a mark.


  • Kat

    Thanks to Summit for reprinting this book! :) It's a real guide to coping with heartbreaks and finding a new love.


  • Jenny

    I remembered this book way back when I was at may 6th grade. I think this is the time I was starting to devour reading at the young age.:) I highly recommend it to young readers out there:)


  • Alona

    "And all it took for her self-esteem to shrink from its former size XL to a diminutive, breath-constricting size XXS were three words: “This isn't working."There really is no easy way to survive a break up especially if you are the one left behind. It’s nice to read books and articles about it but there is no black and white systematic instruction of how one can get past the heartache. The road to recovery is not the same for everyone. Sometimes a person would take just weeks to bounce back; [...]

    The Breakup Diariesby Maya O. CalicaPerhaps it's the most painful thing when your boyfriend would decide to call it quits on your anniversary dinner date. Ouch!Well, written in a girl's point of view, I clearly understand how girls think and act in the given situation.I'm not really sure about this one so I ask some of my girl friends. In my opinion, they can't move on until they meet someone better than their ex. Also, the good thing is, they're going to cry and let it all out for days but they [...]


  • Hannah

    An easy read but not something that would leave an outstanding impression. The character is too airhead in my opinion. The love between main character and the guy she eventually ended up with was underdeveloped. Nevertheless, the book entertained me.
