get to know me meme: [one/five] books ■ the perks of being a wallflower by stephen chbosky

So, I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.

[3/10] The Waves by Virginia Woolf

"I see nothing. We may sink and settle on the waves. The sea will drum in my ears. The white petals will be darkened with sea water. They will float for a moment and then sink. Rolling over the waves will shoulder me under. Everything falls in a tremendous shower, dissolving me."

Novels aren’t just happy escapes; they are slivers of people’s souls, nailed to the pages, dripping ink from veins of wood pulp. Reading the right one at the right time can make all the difference.

I am an addicted to books. For me, it’s not only about it smelling or how much I appreciate this feeling when I run my fingers through the pages, but shapes as well, because there’s nothing more beautiful and delightful than books on shelves.
