Book 28: The Perks of Being a Wallflower

8 Mar

Perksofbeingwallflower1The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

 

Oh goodness. Although the ending was spoiled for me by one of my close friends who had assumed that I already read it, ack the curse of being known as the bookworm, I still enjoyed it! I actually watched the movie before reading the novel (by a whole 3 days 🙂 ), breaking one of my reading rules but I think that the movie is very on-par with the book. But the movie is neither here nor there, but you should check out the mook post ( a mook is a movie +book that blog is awesome!) here. Anyways. I don’t usually connect with crying characters, but Charlie just pulled and pulled on my heartstrings. I felt like he cried in every letter he wrote to his friend, but I didn’t hate it. And as if I was Charlie I found my cheeks to be wet a lot through reading this book (I have cried while reading before, and am proud of those moments, but it was a little weird for me to find my eyes tearing up so often).

“Anything to not feel like crying” (94) ← summary of the book right there. Haha.

2013: full of Movie Adapted Books

28 Jan

I stumbled upon this lovely article from examiner.com about 2013’s Young Adult book to movie list.  I love books, but I also love books being made into movies! You can find the article here. I’ve read most of those books (and have even “reviewed” some of them) so I am very excited about the movies coming out.  Plus knowing the release date gives me an excuse to reread some of these stories before the premiere. 😉

not that I need an excuse, of course. 🙂

Book 13: Beautiful Creatures

10 Jan

Beautiful CreaturesBeautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

To be honest I only picked up this book because my cousin showed me the trailer and it seemed so cool! Well that and my affinity towards the supernatural. This book differed from my uze(usual) in that it was told from the point of view of the male. But still enjoyable. Magic. Love. A Countdown. And sequels to come. Purrrfect.  This was a good introductory novel into the series, explaining the magical world to our Mortal.  My favorite character has to be Marian. The Librarian of course. She is bad ass in the, knowledge makes me bad ass way, not the I’m so powerful I can actually kick your ass way. Seeing as I couldn’t throw a punch unless my life depended on it, I realistically-ha if I could even be that cool- would be the Librarian bad ass.
