What I'm Reading: The Perks of Being a Wallflower

I started this book as my train pulled out of the station this morning.

In what felt like two minutes later, the train pulled into Grand Central, and I had to tear myself away from a story that gripped me and tugged me in from the very first page.

I haven't stopped thinking about it all day long, and am counting the minutes until my train ride home so that I can pick up where I left off.

And as soon as I get home this afternoon I am sitting down on the couch, and not getting back up until I have read straight through to the end.

There is something utterly magical about being absorbed in a book.

I can't believe I waited so long to read this one.

But I'm glad that I have it now.


  1. You are feeling exactly how I felt reading it. You HAVE to read Eleanor & Park (also Fangirl), I'm telling you. You will love them. Happy weekend reading!!! Stay warm. I'm, unfortunately, sending very cold weather your way! Build a fire...

  2. I just put this on my to read list!

  3. I can't wait to hear more - it's on my to-read list.

  4. I haven't read that book yet! I guess it's going on the list!

  5. I loved this book. A very moving, poetic look at what being a teenager was like for me...
