And as promised…

The book reviews for The Fault In Our Stars and The Perks Of Being A Wallflower 🙂

The Perks Of Being A Wallflower

 This is the story of what it’s like to grow up in high school. More intimate than a diary, Charlie’s letters are singular and unique, hilarious and devastating. We may not know where he lives. We may not know to whom he is writing. All we know is the world he shares. Caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it puts him on a strange course through uncharted territory. The world of first dates and mixed tapes, family dramas and new friends. The world of sex, drugs, andThe Rocky Horror Picture Show, when all one requires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite.

•This is really one of my favorite books of all time. I just finished this book last week and to be honest, I could actually relate to it. It’s because It’s a story of what it’s like in high school.

•I can’t wait for the movie!! 🙂 BECAUSE LOGAN LERMAN EMMA WATSON LOGAN LERMAN LOGAN LERMAN… L O G A N L E R M A N. Mehehehe.  Here’s the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dY5EbgJTvI

•Favorite quotes:

 “And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.” (After the movie it will be “And in that moment, I swear this is going to be an overused line.”)

So this is my life and I want you to know that I am both sad and happy and I’m still trying to figure out how that could be.

And I guess I realized at that moment that I really did love her. Because there was nothing to gain, and that didn’t matter.

“She was sad, though. But it was a hopeful kind of sad. The kind of sad that just takes time”

“Old pictures look very rugged and young, and the people in the photographs always seem a lot happier than you are.”

THE FAULT IN OUR STARS 

Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too; post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time (whatever that means), Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumours tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault.  Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind.

•YOU GUYS NEED TO READ THIS BOOK. IT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL FEELS THAT YOU NEVER KNOW IT WAS THERE.
