Finally! Done reading Dear Alex,
Let me say that this book somehow made me recall some of the things I did because I have loved someone. I mean everyone does! Alex narrated some of her love life encounters: the lessons, heartache, and survival tips.
She also collected some other stories of her friends having gone through those heartbreaks.
True to her onscreen image; even in this book, you could see or imagine her kikay/kulit moves while expressing an opinion in this write-up. She articulated her stories in candid ways that make every reader smile in between and relates more with her. The delivery is just as if she is speaking in front of you.
What made me love this book is the final part of it. I won’t give you spoilers on it – for those who didn’t read yet. But for those who finished, I like that page when she said:
“You have the choice to continue reading or not…”
This is her break-up survival guide. It is a good read for everyone – single (by choice/ circumstances), married, complicated etc.
What I learned in reading this book? Is to know yourself – love yourself before loving someone else and most especially is to build a relationship with God!
There are a lot of beautiful quotes from this book; one of my favorite the one from
Isaiah 66:9 –
“I will not cause you pain without allowing something new to be born”
Such a good guide for youngsters! I will this post with that! J
Way to go Alex G!
