Book Review!

The Perks of Being a Wallflower – Stephen Chbosky
Wow-zahs. So, I read this book in under two nights during the Christmas holidays, it was safe to say that I was addicted and just couldn’t put the book down, Stephen Chbosky, you genius, you!
The story takes you on a journey through so many feelings and emotions, the feelings of inspiration, happiness, sadness and the realisation that things are going to start changing.

“An introvert freshman is taken under the wings of two seniors who welcome him to the real world.” I felt so many connections with this book, it came at the perfect time, it made me realise that maybe I wasn't alone in my "AGHHH I'm getting old, I don't know what I want to do!!" kind of thing...

Charlie the main character, is a freshman, he takes you on a roller coaster journey through his life, he’s love, he’s heart breaks and he’s favourite music. I could write, talk and dream forever about all the amazing quotes in this book, be sure to see a few pop up throughout my blog (as I also love quotes)! I don’t want to give anything away/spoilers, if you are yet to read this book (if not then umm - you really should!) because I really feel it’s a book you have to experience for yourself, everyone connects to stories in their own way. This book especially is a very personal one indeed.

 It just keeps getting better.. The Perks of Being a Wallflower was made into a film!
AH. So the film debuted to the big screens in October 2012. I scurried along to the cinemas as soon as the film was released and I just instantly fell for the story line. Since then the DVD has also just recently been released (AHH.) February 11th 2013 to be exact. 

Starring Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller, this is definitely a recommended film of mine from me to you to stock up on your very home shelf.

"So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be."

With love, Charlotte
