This book (The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky) has officially made it to my list of fastest reads yet, normally I like to reread paragraphs and think about what I’ve just read but this book made everything easy, I waited for difficult moments, I wanted it to make me cry, and yet it was so easily digestible that it just didn’t happen. It took me two days to get through this book, between working a full day shift and going back for my first day at uni.
I wonder whether my ability to understand and relate to particular novels, including this one, makes it easier for me to progress through it without reducing myself into a nervous wreck. I wonder whether that deeper connection forces my mind to think rationally and not let my emotions get the better of me.
There were many quotes throughout the book that I felt were very strong points, things that if I were writing an essay I would pull out and divulge into further but for now I’ll just say it’s been a good experience, the ending really makes the book, but otherwise it was enjoyable.
And I don’t mean to say ‘good’ or ‘enjoyable’ in a happy-go-lucky kinda way, I mean it in the way that sometimes sharing an experience with an author or narrator within a book or even particular characters can make you feel like you aren’t alone, your experiences are real and sometimes it takes someone else talking about it to begin to feel at peace with it yourself.
There’s nothing like deep breaths after laughing that hard. Nothing in the world like a sore stomach for the right reasons.
I can’t wait till English/Education is my life…my goodness. It was my first day back at uni and I never feel more at home, safer or happier than I do being able to study the things I truly love! I love my shop and I love all the ladies I work with, I even love some of the customers but I could do without the uncalled for abuse and stupid comments….lol. I’ve always tried to say I don’t believe in a stupid question, but don’t roll your eyes at the name of my stores membership, you’re getting discounts for being a part of it you tool. Gah. Lucky I love those women I work with or I’d be outta there!
Bring on the next 18months, I’m ready, I’m motivated, I’m excited and I’m nearing the end of my degrees =)
Bring on life changes! Bring on my dreams!
Someday, someone is going to look at you with a light in their eyes you’ve never seen, they’ll look at you like you’re everything they’ve been looking for their entire lives. Wait for it.
I think my life progresses much the same as the way I read a book.
I sit…read a few pages….decide whether it’s going to be any good early on…force myself to go through with it anyway…all of a sudden I’ve gone from page 15 to 158 without even realising just how many times I’ve turned the pages…and then suddenly it’s over.
Sometimes when I’m really enjoying a book, I’ll read a sentence or paragraph and just think - how can someone’s head be wired in such a way that they’d come up with that?
I don’t know that you know how well you ruined me and that really frustrates me most of all ♡
Home with my sleepy princesses ♡
