Review: The Little Prince

The Little Prince
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

this book is so “little” that you can finish reading it quickly.. but while your on your way, alot of lessons can be learned with your journey with The Little Prince. Cried alot in the end, though.

Il est très simple: on ne voit bien qu’avec le cœur. L’essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.

Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

Review: The Catastrophic History of You and Me

The Catastrophic History of You and Me
The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“In the Year of the Boy I’d Rather Not Mention, I used to spend hours singing along to the same sappy love songs over and over again on repeat, letting myself get lost in the music or lyrics, as if every word had been written especially for us.”

Brie, like the cheese.. gets her heart broken by her boyfriend (who turned out to be gay)

But there’s Patrick, who waited all his dead-life for her (Lily).

This book had me on tears.

I don’t want to watch it anymore because i know.. I’ll cry again.  It just really breaks my heart when I realize that it was actually a pet that he left.  I’m a pet lover and as much crazy my pets go I don’t really punish them.. and worse is to throw them away.

I used to have cats. My brother once threw away our pet kitten because of toilet training issue. He did that when I’m not at home.

Now,  I have 2 pet dogs. I love them so much and I take the initiative always to feed,  bathe,  and clean up their mess🙂

Here’s a photo of them🙂

Book Review: This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

This Song Will Save Your LifeThis Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

“You think it’s so easy to change yourself.  You think it’s so easy, but it’s not.  What do you think it takes to reinvent yourself as an all-new person, a person who makes sense, who belongs? Do you change your clothes, your hair, your face? Go on, then. Do it. Pierce your ears, trim your bangs, buy a new purse. They will still see past that, see you, the girl who is still too scared, still too smart for her own good, still a beat behind, still, always, wrong. Change all you want; you can’t change that”

Those are the words that made me want to finish reading this book. Like ask the others,  I relate with Elise Dembowski alot. Has a few friends,  unpopular,  unlovable, suicidal…  Sad, but true. She kept all her issue to herself until she found that one thing that made her move on. I downloaded some, if not all,  of the songs mentioned in the book. It made me move on from my “TaylorSwift” playlist.  More with The Smiths now, and Blur’s Girls and Boys made me have LSS. But aside from that,  I felt like I went back in time and revisited the old me.. Yeah, I cut my hair, trimmed my bangs, tried to change my clothing style but still with no success. I am not sad, Maybe I’m just meant to be just like this.  I am.For the ending, though, it left me hanging. Maybe a part 2? But I’ll be reading Leila’s other books for the meantime.
