The Perks of Being a Wallflower

One of those rare blogger moments where you post two posts in one day for your favourite book. (One of my favourite books)

So after half a year of waiting for the movie to come out - the trailer is finally getting released tomorrow at the MTV pre show!!!!

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is about a wallflower named Charlie and his friends, family and school experiences as a teenager. I won't spoil too much in case you want to read it but I will leave you with few of my favourite quotes from the book. Which is lying right beside me on my bed! I am re-reading it before I watch the trailer and plan to re-read it before I watch the movie!

Charlie, Patrick and Sam
 It's strange because sometimes, I read a book, and I think I am the people in the book We accept the love we think we deserve.I feel infinite.'He's a wallflower.'...And in that moment, I swear we were infinite. I am very interested and fascinated by how everyone loves each other, but no one really likes each other. I really think that everyone should have watercolors, magnetic poetry, and a harmonica. Sam and Patrick looked at me. And I looked at them. And I think they knew. Not anything specific really. They just knew. And I think that's all you can ever ask from a friend. Everyone else is either asleep or having sex. I've been watching cable television and eating jello.

I wasn't sure of the cast at first but then I saw the trailer and was all excited about it and though they suited the characters perfectly. Stephen Chbosky, who is the author of the book, is directing and wrote the screenplay for it so if he interpreted his book this way then I'll accept it! 

I love the book because I can relate to Charlie. I am a wallflower. I also love the characters, the mystery behind it, the humour that I laugh out loud to and just the plot in general. I also love how it makes me feel like I'm actually receiving letters and being brought along with the ride. I just love it and I can't wait to watch the movie. Hopefully it comes to Australia and even if it doesn't, I hope to watch it one way or another. 

The novel is definitely not for everyone, it's a little dark and shows a lot of teenager's lives. People will either love it or hate it - I'm just one of those who love it. 

"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."
