Day 13 - Books 

#captureyourgrief (Yes, I still running behind. I'll catch up one of these days.)
13. Book: Have you read a book about grief that helped you immensely in your journey of grief? Please feel welcome to share the book and links to where it can be purchased so others can find it. ~CarlyMarie
The following book was the one and only book that truly helped me through those first few days/months after losing our daughter. It was not written specifically for the loss of a child; however, it was written to help us through difficult times.

The Bounce Back Book isn't your run-of-the-mill self-help book. It doesn't claim "everything happens for a reason" or list passages of scripture. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.) Salmansohn gives you tried and true mental exercises that help move you through your grief. Some may not pertain to you, other exercises may be just what you're looking for to get through the day or even the hour. At my lowest, many of these exercises helped me when I thought I couldn't get through another day.

From Amazon:
In The Bounce Back Book the dynamic author whose quirky self-help books—including How to Make Your Man Behave . . . and How to Be Happy, Dammit —mixes from-the-gut wisdom, humor, feistiness, and sophistication to create a hip, inspiring resource that will brighten the darkest mood. The book is grounded in happiness research, psychological studies, Greek philosophy. And it delivers: Here are 70 easily digestible, potentially life-changing tips on how to bounce back from adversity, each on a spread that's as punchy in look as it is powerful in message.
This is definitely a keeper. I recommend this book to everyone I know, regardless of their hardship.
