I received a copy of Hidden Heartbreak through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Hidden Heatbreak was originally an Instagram project, believe it or not. It made it to print, which is something the creator, Emma Lee, should be extremely proud of. The project was designed to help the artist cope with a rough break up. It’s something we’re all likely familiar with, so it’s impossible not to sympathize with her there.

I was a bit surprised to see that the story itself actually covers the whole of the relationship, from the early stages (and early warnings signs) to the (in this case inevitable) downfall of the relationship. I don’t know why, but I was expecting the project to have started with everything being in the past; that seems like the healthy way to look at it?

However it’s clear that for Emma Lee she had to take the relationship apart in order to see what went wrong. I can understand that. Sometimes you can’t see how toxic a relationship is until it’s over. I hope that the insight proved useful, both for her and all of her followers and readers.

Some of the writing felt bitter and not helpful in terms of recovery or moving on, though we’re not all emotionless robots, so I understand where it’s all coming from.

About Liz (AKA Cat)

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try any artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. My other major passion is reading. My TBR pile is larger than I'll ever be able to read, and yet I can't resist adding to it on a nearly daily basis. I love to read science fiction & fantasy, graphic novels, and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I have a couple of blogs, as you can see. One is primarily my photography, while the other are my book reviews. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
