It's the week of Valentine's Day, and whether you're coupled, uncoupled, single and happy, single and miserable, recently broken-up with, on the hunt for a hook-up, or otherwise, I can promise you will find solace or comfort or inspiration in one of the new books out this week.
For readers who prefer nonfiction, this week has four incredible offerings: Cringeworthy, the guide to awkwardness every Millennial wishes they had in college; How To Fix A Broken Heart, the guide to heartbreak every Millennial wishes they had in college... and now; Hormonal: The Hidden Intelligence of Hormones, a science-based breakdown of how hormones actually affect your body, mind, and behavior; and Wallis in Love, a biography of one of the most elusive women in the history of the British monarchy, the American divorcée Wallis Simpson.
On the fiction side, this week brings two phenomenal — and very different — stories: The Prince & The Dressmaker, a genderqueer fairy tale retelling that will warm your heart just in time for the holiday, and Look for Her, an English-set thriller about a murdered teenager who might not be, well, quite as dead as people thought.
Whatever your mood this Valentine's Day, there's a new book for you. Here are the six books not to miss this week:
