Even while everyone experiences grief, many of us still don’t fully get what it is. It makes no difference whether it’s the death of a loved one, the loss of an opportunity, or something concrete; it affects your life. Although there is a lot to absorb and consider, we owe it to ourselves to make sure that we let our sensations and emotions develop fully. You might not know where to begin, and you might not be prepared to discuss it with anyone just yet. When that happens, we turn to books because they can provide comfort and understanding that we weren’t even aware we were in need of.

Here are just a few novels that address grief in various contexts.

The Silence That Binds Us by Joanna Ho

A Year to the Day by Robin Benway

All My Rage by Sabaa Tahir

Message Not Found by Dante Medema

The Stepping Off Place by Cameron Kelly Rosenblum
