So, I've finally done what soooo many people have been telling me I need to do for about 4 years now.
I have finally read 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower'.
[queue cheers from about 50 billion people]
So, 'Perks' is one of the many books that one of my friends read during one of her 'I-love-books-not-war' phases a few years back; therefore one of the books that I've been expected to read ever since.
Obviously, since I am a bad human being, I haven't really read any of these books.
Up until now, that is...
Anyway, I borrowed the book from my school library yesterday afternoon, on a complete whim (well, the librarian reserved it for me before the summer, and I kind-of forgot...) and finished it at 11.45 this morning.
That, for me, is some kind of record...
And, I actually really enjoyed it.
Which, in a weird way, kind-of surprised me.
I expected - because of all the hype surrounding the book, and the film (which I haven't yet seen) - that I'd be slightly disappointed.
But, fortunately, I was not.
The only issue now, however, is that I'm not really sure if I want to see the film anymore...
It may sound like a rubbish reason, but now that I've read the book, I kind-of have the image of the characters in my head; the way that I see them looking. And I think that watching the film - like with 'Hunger Games' - will make it weird. I don't know...
Anyway, sorry for babbling on.
I hope you're all well, and that you had a great summer!
Bye for now x
