    As much as people say it, this really is one of my favorite books of all time. MTV promoted it, it got a lot of press, so many people shun it and say it is overrated. I disagree.I didn't read this book until last year, when I turned 21. My boyfriend owned it, it seemed like a quick read, and I wante...

    There may be a book in the world that can address, just within very few pages, suicide, molestation, domestic abuse, homosexuality, drug use, mental issues, first sexual experiences, rape, abortion, etc., and not sound like a Lifetime movie, but The Perks of Being a Wallflower is not an example of t...

    If, like me, you lurk on frequent tumblr, you will have realised that there is only so far you can scroll before you hit something like this: Stephen Chbosky’s epistolary novel has something of a cult following, and the quotes that litter the internet seem almost anthemic, given the passion wit...

    *UPDATE:* I went and saw the movie today and it was a very good movie. Stephen Chbosky directed the movie and it was very true to the book, I would say almost exact. So if you liked the book I would definitely recommend going to see the movie, you will enjoy it! I have been struggling with how to ra...

    February 25, 2013Dear Charlie,I am writing to you because I feel like you're the only one that would listen to me right now. From all the friends that I have made you are the one that's the most understanding. I guess what I'm trying to do is thank you for being there for me these last couple of day...

    Clueless. I am clueless. The popularity of this book baffles me even more than the popularity of The Fault in Our Stars. Maybe I really am just a coldhearted person with no feelings.Amazingly, I actually managed to start The Perks of Being a Wallflower knowing absolutely nothing about it. I've avoid...

    ‘‘Charlie, we accept the love we think we deserve.’’ That is quite true. I have stumbled across many beautiful sentences, throughout my reading, and ones that make us think but, this one, is my absolute favorite of them all.There is so much that can be said about this, yet I don...
