I continued to compose wild stories about my friends and family going on extreme adventures.
The perks of being a wallflower is written by Stephen Chbosky and is a young adult literature epistolary novel. It took me about 2 weeks to read it, which is quite long for me because I usually read books quite fast. The book has also been released as a motion picture, under the same name. The idea of the name for the book came after Chbosky experienced a bad breakup, and went through a rough time. He questioned why such good people let themselves get treated so badly, and then he realised that “that 's just one of the perks of being a wallflower”.
Without the knowledge of self there is no knowledge of God (Cron & Stabile, 2016). When I began reading the book, this quote had stood out to me, it highlights what knowing about yourself is all about. Before beginning this assignment or even opening the book, I had briefly heard about the Enneagram—it was another personality quest of what one is.

We need texture in our lives, just like we need it in a book. Fahrenheit 451 reminds us why it is important to include literature in our lives. Ray Bradbury reminds us that analyzing literature and our lives are important.
But not enough to swear on. And the part of the book that might be called family story has expanded into fiction, but always within the outline of a true narrative”. Here the author states that the stories in “The View from Castle Rock” differ from other stories since she attempts to write about herself in these stories. Therefore, they seem to head towards factual life-writing, but the author sharply draws a distinction between the story and memoir, since the “centering on her self” let her create figures and stories that are independent of her intention. Even though she would eagerly try to stick to facts, her imagination would prevent her from doing so.
