I recently finished The Fault In Our Stars and I'm so glad I heeded the recommendations. What a lovely book! Everybody should definitely read it at least once. I sure know I'll be revisiting it again.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is amazingly is epic, it's got some very interesting ideas affiliated to the plot, given that that protagonist, Charlie thinks a hell lot and the things that he thinks are effective to the point that the reader starts to analyze them and sees reason too.

Then, The Fault in Our Stars is a mesmerizing piece of work, extremely well written and Augustus Waters is a heartthrob. But it's less coming-of-age and more teen romance, even though the plot is heavy.

And I think I should give To Kill A Mockingbird another try.

I am reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower and while it's been just three pages, I like the tone of the book. The fault in our stars is amazing! I think this book makes you think a lot too. The characters are pretty mature for their age.

I don't know why I never got around to trying To Kill a Mockingbird. I have heard such rave reviews.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a contemporary classic, the way the protagonist thinks and how much he thinks is something I can relate to on an alarming level. And The Fault in Our Stars, I believe that the characters had to be mature for their age because they were battling cancer and stuff. It didn't make me think much, I'll be honest. But I did like to read the book immensely. It's one of the books I could reread at some point.

Copy that about To Kill a Mockingbird.

I remember reading both the books when I was around 11 and back then, I loved both of them. Especially, David Copperfield. I pretty much went crazy after reading it. And that's funny because I can't remember anything of the story now. I need to pick them up again, I guess. Embarrassed

It did make think a lot, but mostly I enjoyed the book because of Hazel and Gus and their bonding. And those dashes of humor.
