Finally! It took me more than three months to finish this book because I was so busy…and yeah, lazy.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is the most influential book I have read so far. I never knew how much it would touch my heart and change my life. It served as the driving force that pushed me to unveil my dark past, and eventually accept it. It helped me in different ways…through it’s quotable quotes and how it exposed the realities of life. Somehow, it also made a way to get closer with a special person I met.
And here are some of the quotes that made this book exceptional:
"There are other people who have it a lot worse."
"But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there."
Thank you, Charlie. <3
P.S. Reading the book is way too far better than just watching the movie version. Though, honestly, watching the movie first made it easier for me visualize how the characters act.
