The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Assalamualaikum and hye!

I managed to read the novel after watching its film. Some people might ask “Why did you still read the novel if you already knew the end of the story?”. Well, it’s not the end that matters, it is the plot of the story that motivates me to read. Not just simply watch the movie. It’s a very good book. Undeniable.

The saying makes me remember one nice quote I found while carelessly browsing on facebook.

“Some flowers grow best in the sun, while others do well in the shade. Allah always know what is the best for us so, He put us where we grow the best”

Allah put us where we grow the best which means that we don’t have the power to choose where we came from but certainly He knows the best and had put us at our best place so that we could figure out by ourselves to get the best out of us. Simple yet thoughtful.

Hari tu aku ada beli satu novel seram. Stephen King tulis. Kalau nak try baca, buleh la. Tapi pastikan anda bukan seorang yang penakut cam hampeh. Tak bosan baca novel ni sebab dia ada 4 cerita dalam satu buku. Aku buleh kasi 4.5/5 untuk rating novel nih. Baik punye. Harga mampu milik: hanya RM 31.90

manage to end the novel despite all the things I’ve encountered throughout this semester. It’s a very good book indeed. I can’t agree no more about the reviews written by The New York Times, Time Magazine, New York Herald Tribune, etc. Well, of course it is. Harper Lee is the winner of the Pulitzer Prize and this book has been recognized as a masterpiece of American Literature. She really know how to make people fall in love with her writing. 🙂

Mission accomplished!!

The title is quite intriguing I guess because someone might wonder what kind of mission I’d went through. Do continue your reading if you want to know what kind of mission I’m talking about.

Mission: Complete set of Harry Potter’s novels.

Mission started: I don’t remember but I guessed it was when my mother gave my first Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone novel for my 13th birthday in 2004.

Mission accomplished: 20th April 2012. (English-World Book Day)

L- R: 1st novel (The Philosopher’s Stone, 2nd (The Chamber of Secret), 3rd (The Prisoner of Azkaban), 4th (The Goblet of Fire), 5th (The Order of The Phoenix), 6th (The Half-Blood Prince), 7th (The Deathly Hallows).

I’m so grateful and felt very triumphant upon completing my mission. Having a complete set of Harry Potter novels is my ultimate dream when I first knew about it. Although I am kinda old to dream of something like that, I think it’s fine for me as long as I reached my goal. Who cares anyway? 

Besides, this is the proof that I am one of Harry Potter fans out there. How nice! Reading the books are worthier than watching the films because JK Rowling would describe every single thing that film would not be able to do. Believe me, reading the books ain’t like watching the film. (but, of course the actors and the actresses in the film did make the characters come alive). They did a very good job which I can’t deny.

Well, Harry Potter’s films were finally over but as long as I owned the set of those wonderful novels, I see there’s no point for me to worry about. I lived with the novels not the films.

If Harry Potter is the boy who lived, then JK Rowling is the best novelist who ever lived. 🙂
