Book Review: The Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Friday, 28 September 2012

Hello everyone! I have a book review for you all today, I know it's been absolutely ages since I posted about books on my blog. I used to do 'recently read' posts but then I never done one for ages and the amount of books just piled up and I didn't want to do a post with about 20+ books on it. I do have some very exciting news for you book lovers though. I'm going to be writing book reviews for a book blog called The Bloggers Library along with a few other bloggers! I'm really looking forward to it. So if you're interested in reading more book reviews go and follow that!

Now onto the book, a few of you may know that The Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky is my all time favourite book. It's been made into a movie which is due to be released on Wednesday so I thought now would be the perfect time to review it so that I can convince you all to read the book first!

The book is set out in the form of letters written to a stranger boy a teenage by called Charlie. It's not stated in the book but Charlie has asperberger's(a form of autism) and uses this as an outlet. He talks about how he is getting on at high school and about his life. The way it's written is beautiful. I can read this book in a night, it's one of those books you just can't put down! I don't want to spoil anything for you so I'm not going to go into the details but I really really recommend it. Go read it now! And do not, on any circumstance, go to see the film without having read the book first! I've seen the trailer and I'm still not sure what I think about it, it looks like it's going to be a generic teenage movie which is very dissappointing! It's also worth noting that this  is the only book that's ever made me cry.
