They helped me cross the chasm of grief into stability

There are many books out there on grief, but it can be hard to know where to begin. Here are some of my favorites you can start with. I have categorized them based on different themes. If you are in the first year of grief, you might be experiencing grief brain and it might be hard for you to read books. Most of these books have audible versions – try purchasing those if you need to.
