The Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky


I thoroughly enjoyed this book, although I don’t think that it should’ve received the hype that it has had.
I felt that it was just an every day account of his life and nothing too big happened through the story, but I still enjoyed reading it?

I recently started to watch the film, but I couldn’t get into it! I was cringing so much at the dance scene, that I had to turn it off!
This is a book that I think I would get into more, if I re-read it.

3.5 of out 5.

    Omg! I’m in love with this book. I actually watched the movie first before I read the book. I actually fell in love with the movie, and later with the book after reading it. I really hate that you didn’t enjoy the movie! And that you didn’t like the book very much. But it’s okay, obvs. I’m always looking for awesome books to read. Any recommendations?

      I’m so glad you enjoyed this, Tiffany! I was gutted that I didn’t enjoy it as much as I expected myself to 🙁
      I will definitely give this another chance and reread it! 😀

      Some of my favourite books at the moment are The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (which is getting it’s own film, it’s that good!) and Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (although that one is practically a video game, within a book – it’s like nothing that I have read previously, so it was so intriguing to read!) x

Let me know what you think!
