Books to Read When You Are Single AF

Join the forever alone club, you are probably here because you’ve swiped left, swiped right, rang a bell and rotated tables but still, the status remains single AF.

If your love life is bordering on disaster and you may be freaking out, I have made it my duty to tell you that there are way worse things that could happen to you in the world and there is nothing like  reading about someone else’s disastrous love life and awkward date encounters to make you realize you are not alone. You are not going to be forever alone and to put a smile on your face here goes a list of books to read when you are single AF that won’t make you sad about being single AF.
