    ➳A true and honest picture book that really did take my breathe away either through the tears of sadness and tears of laughter that this novel gets your flowing. Not a regular novel that I would usually read or take my time to enjoy, but I am truly glad I was able to read these short stories. I highly recommend taking your time and enjoy this masterpiece if you never plan on going to

Not a regular novel that I would usually read or take my time to enjoy, but I am truly glad I was able to read these short stories. I highly recommend taking your time and enjoy this masterpiece if you never plan on going to the ACTUAL museum that is located in New York City since the pictures added in this album/novel are just way too great to miss out as well are the stories!

    I read this book as soon as I recever it in the mail because it was so unusual. It's an art book that contains photographs of memorabilia from people's broken relationship, with an explanation of the significance of the object was. Some of the stories are beautiful and touching, and others are creepy and sad. My favorite object is a button from the TV show the X-files, that says "I want to believe."

    There are not many things on my list of things I really want to do, or I suppose, my "bucket list"... Before picking this book up, it had exactly one thing on it. Within five pages of this book, visiting one of these museums made it on the list.

    I could not put this book down. Some of these stories are so sad... Some are more amusing, or happy. The emotional scale is pretty much everywhere. But what I liked best it that it's so real. Every one of these words are heartfelt. And every one of these

    I could not put this book down. Some of these stories are so sad... Some are more amusing, or happy. The emotional scale is pretty much everywhere. But what I liked best it that it's so real. Every one of these words are heartfelt. And every one of these objects would be meaningless to anyone else. It's just really amazing how we can attach so much meaning to everyday objects.

    This was definitely a great idea, for both the museums and the book. I hope to see some of these objects for real one day.

    Note: I received this book for free through Goodreads Giveaways.

    If you're a fan of books like PostSecret and Humans of New York, The Museum of Broken Relationships" Modern Love in 203 Everyday Objects is a book you're going to want to pick up. And I have a copy to giveaway, courtesy of Grand Central Publishing!

    Olinka Vistica and Drazen Grubisic were a couple for four years. When their relationship ended, they came up with a novel idea - a place to store all the painful triggers of past loves, creating a vault for both their tangible and intangible heritage.

    Olinka Vistica and Drazen Grubisic were a couple for four years.

We named this repository The Museum of Broken Relationships.

    The collection tours, but there are two permanent museums - on in Zagreb, Croatia and one in Los Angeles, California. And now there's a book!

    I found the concept fascinating. We all have mementos - things we keep that remind us of a love or a loss. Things that may bring comfort - or sadness. There is a time to let those heartbreaking items go - both physically and emotionally.

    Those are the items housed in the museums - ranging from small toys, stuffed animals, wedding dresses, shoes, rings, letters and more. I think the belly button lint was the most unusual, but there were more unexpected items. Each item appears in a full colour photograph. Accompanying each item is the story behind it - and why it has finally been let go. The dates of the beginning and the end are also noted. A relationship gone sour is the most prevalent, but death is also behind some of the stories.

    What is the appeal of this you ask? We all have a little streak of voyeur in us - glimpsing a peek into some else's heartache or heartbreak. And it's impossible not to keep turning pages. And at the end, I thought about one or two things I could send in.......

    The Museum Of Broken Relationships @brokenships was heart breaking but beautiful. I first heard about this museum when I watched an episode of WAGS LA and became interested with the concept. I had no idea there was even a book out but I'm very grateful to the beautiful Monisha at @foreverromancebooks for sending me a copy ❤😘 if you're not familiar with The Museum Of Broken Relationships, they basically showcase items that were donated by others from past relationships, along with a lil back stor

    The Museum Of Broken Relationships @brokenships was heart breaking but beautiful. I first heard about this museum when I watched an episode of WAGS LA and became interested with the concept. I had no idea there was even a book out but I'm very grateful to the beautiful Monisha at @foreverromancebooks for sending me a copy ❤️😘 if you're not familiar with The Museum Of Broken Relationships, they basically showcase items that were donated by others from past relationships, along with a lil back story of some sort of that said relationship. It's almost artistic the way they can make something so beautiful out of something so broken and share it with the world. I really want to visit one day. I went ahead and added it to my bucketlist. Thank you @brokenships for reminding us that we're not so alone when it comes to having our heart broken and that we're all connected through emotions. I really enjoyed this book! If you have a chance to walk by a bookstore, locate this book and flip through it. Trust me, you will end up taking it home.
