It’s hard to review a book that you love. Because you always want to do the book justice. Because you want your review to pass your personal standard. Because you want people to understand how much you love the book but you don’t want to gush too much. It’s hard to write a review for the book that you love, because you want to do it ‘right’. It’s kind of crazy that it took me several days just to write this review.
If you need a summary, here it is: The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a story about a freshman named Charlie, and this guy Charlie is extremely naïve to the point of almost unbelievable. Later, he befriends two seniors who expose him to things in real world.
This book is very quotable that I swear, I reblog different quote from The Perks of Being a Wallflower every week in my Tumblr blog. Just Google ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower quote’ and you can see dozens of typographies popping up. I think it's the way Charlie describes things around him. I love Charlie’s voice. Sometimes it’s very child-like, but other times it feels more mature than most people in his age. It’s honest, real, and relatable. It’s unlike anything you’ve ever encountered.
I found little things that Charlie did to his friends are endearing. The way he gives gifts to everyone and doesn’t wish for anything in return. The way he makes mixtape for Patrick and picks winter as the theme. The way he wants to buy books for people he loves not because he wants to educate them, but because he wants them to read the book and fall in love with the story too. Charlie is, in a quirky and extraordinary way, adorable. As I've already said, sometimes Charlie can be child-like, but he is not childish. He grows up, and he learns about things. Charlie makes mistakes, and I can’t say that I agree with everything he does, but he is still one of my favorite fictional characters ever.
I love The Perks of Being a Wallflower because it makes me see things from different perspective. And because I love Charlie, and all the other characters in this book. Because they feel real. As if I can touch, have conversations with them when I read the book.
This book might not be for everyone, and there are scenes like drinking, smoking pot, or sexual scenes that I don’t want to expose to youngsters. But if you’re ever in the mood of something short, beautiful, and special, something that will make you think… please pick this book.
And all the books you've read have been read by other people. And all the songs you've loved have been heard by other people. And that girl that's pretty to you is pretty to other people. And you know that if you looked at these facts when you were happy, you would feel great because you are describing "unity."
It's like when you are excited about a girl and you see a couple holding hands, and you feel so happy for them. And other times you see the same couple, and they make you so mad. And all you want is to always feel happy for them because you know that if you do, then it means that you're happy, too.
I picked this book for obvious reason. The simple title. Forever. Everyone is enchanted with that word. The co3.5 stars. YA classic. Love the message.
I picked this book for obvious reason. The simple title. Forever. Everyone is enchanted with that word. The constant. Everlasting. Eternal. Here, and after.
Introducing a sweet couple, Katherine and Michael. Both seniors from different school. Both young, attractive, and curious about love. And mostly important, they believe in that word. Forever.
We get to see how Katherine and Michael meet up. First kiss. First sex. First serious relationship. First promise of forever.
Naturally, their parents don’t want them to take things too seriously. Eighteenth is too young to get tied up forever. They should see other person, other scenery, and other places. Their parents make them go to different places, and they will be stayed apart for six weeks. Of course, Katherine and Michael are furious. They will only have to prove to everyone, that they are destined for each other. Separating them will only make their love grows stronger.
But they don’t know, that forever…. Forever is a very hard word to keep.
Even though I think the ending is kind of harsh, the message in the book is clear: don’t get too hasty in love. If you promise something, mean it. That way, you won’t hurt too many people in the process. Because we grow from experiences.
**spoiler alert** I love the ending! Vivian surely has made her decision and picks up the right guy.
"Why would we even be attracted to one of them?" s**spoiler alert** I love the ending! Vivian surely has made her decision and picks up the right guy.
"Why would we even be attracted to one of them?" she asked.
"Lots of reasons," he said absently as he gazed longingly at her lips. "They look like us, at least what we look like sometimes, and when you're lonely—”
"But they're not like us," Vivian broke in.
The characters above are werewolves. They are talking about human, and finally, they choose their own kind. Definitely not like other Young-Adult, which always seem so fond of making match between two different creatures. Vampire-Human. Ghost-Human. Werewolf-Human. Dhampir-Human. Fairy-Human. Shapeshifter-Human. Witch-Human.
Well, as you can see, we human always get the major part in most book. So let's take a new experience. Blood and Chocolate invites you to get into a young werewolf's mind, how she struggles to choose between sweet blood and comforting chocolate....more
I'm proudly telling you that I'm a big fan of Quinn now! Such a perfect gentleman. Almost seems too good to be true LOL.
I practically loathe Jason sincI'm proudly telling you that I'm a big fan of Quinn now! Such a perfect gentleman. Almost seems too good to be true LOL.
I practically loathe Jason since the first book. He doesn't get any better. And Sookie's always been the one to clean up the mess.
Sookie is such a sweet and responsible woman. I like her tenderness, and in this book we learn a shocking fact about Bill. I don't get why Bill keep saying that he loves Sookie, but he's still going out with another woman. Wouldn't it be better if he just break up with that woman and trying to regain Sookie's trust?
I'm quiet intrigued by Quinn. Brief introduction about him indeed, but I think he was some kind of interesting. A weretiger! Yay! I hope he w3.5 stars

I was a big fan of Alcide, before I realize how stupid he is. He always seeems to find a way to take the blame on others. It turns out that Calvin Norris has some kind of 'family' too, so the men in Sookie's life turn to be some kind of chaos...
I hope Eric could be a more compassionate one. It's weird, but I think he would be much more lovely. :)...more
