90s music is seriously the best.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

So I’ve heard how good The Perks of Being A Wallflower is and all, but nobody told me how AWESOME it is. For someone who reads too much for their own good, it’s a rare thing to find a book that you’ll never forget, and this is one of them. I loved Charlie’s voice and how hilariously honest he is about everything. He over-thinks everything way too much, to the point where you want to smack him, but sometimes those can make the best characters, and in this novel, it worked. There’s a lot to be learned while reading Perks (besides the great music and books Charlie is into). What I like most about this novel is that it makes you think (in a good way), whether it be about love, family, friends…or just life in general. Without giving too much away, you see things differently after reading Perks. It’s worth a spot in your bookshelf, if you like books that can make you laugh and cry all at the same time.

And, okay, I don’t know why, but for some odd reason, Charlie sort of reminds me of a teenage Forrest Gump. Is that weird? Probably.

Could it be adapted to film/television? It’s already been made into a film! According to IMDb, its US release date is September 21, 2012. So, be sure to check it out. Emma Watson’s in it, so you know it’s going to be a good film. 😉

Have you read The Perks of Being A Wallflower? What did you think of it?
