extremely beautiful and incredibly sad

25 Jan

If you saw a girl in the mrt last Sunday,with tears streaming down her face while reading a chocolate stained book while holdng a tupperware of strawberries and coffee beans,yes that was me.

and what got me bawling my eyes out was a book called extremely loud and incredibly close. as a friend said, what will tug at your heart is not just what was said but even moe so, what was left unsaid. and i also cry because i am amazed at how the writer captured pain, grief, and loss in such a beautiful way

i still have a few chapters to go, but already i am highly recommending this book. i am willing to lend it to you, chocolate stains and all…

    If you ever decide to step out of the fiction section and into the world of autobiographies, I suggest you read Lance Armstrong’s “It’s Not About The Bike”.

    Let’s see how many boxes of tissue you’ll end up using after reading it 🙂
