Let Me Count the Ways

By

On Women, Wisdom, and Ways to Love

Before Becca Anderson was a best-selling author, she was a bright-eyed bibliophile trying to define love. In Let Me Count the Ways, the beloved writer returns with specially curated quotes and snippets of poetry, affirmations, and love letters from her favorite women.

Different ways to say I love you. Author Hoda Kotb, I Really Needed This Today, meets Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw in this empowering and inspirational book for women everywhere. In the much-loved style of Rupi Kaur one-liners, Let Me Count the Ways showcases the best quotes from women alongside gorgeous illustrations. From black authors like Nigerian Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie to American authors like Joyce Carol Oates, this collection of quotes follows women from France, Cuba, Lebanon, Bulgaria, Japan, and more. Packed full of different ways to say I love you, readers can finally step into the love lives of famous women and discover that their love stories aren’t so different from ours.

Quotes specially curated for her. If there’s one thing that unites all women (and people!), it’s love. Whether painful or passionate, love is a powerful force. But you don’t have to be Wonder Woman to survive heartbreak or embark on a romantic adventure—that’s why you have your tribe of women. By collecting reflections on every kind of love and all the ways to love, Anderson uses inspirational quotes to remind women one thing—we are not alone. In chapters like “What Is Love?,” “Self Love,” and “Love Is Love Is Love,” you’ll find quotes from:

  • Love letters by Empress Josephine, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and Abigail Adams
  • Poetry by Miss Lauryn Hill, Lady Nakatomi, and Sandra Cisneros
