so, last night we saw The Perks of Being a Wallflower. this book was really important to me throughout my adolescence; I've probably read it half a dozen times. maybe more. so I was super excited when I heard it was being made into a film, and even more excited when I heard that Stephen Chbosky (the author) was directing it. much of the movie was true to the book, and I adored it. there were some notable differences, but as far as books-made-into-movies go, it was extremely similar. I teared up about three hundred times, but that is to be expected when you're very emotionally invested in a story for so very, very long. thank you, Stephen Chbosky, for bringing Charlie, Sam, and Patrick to life, and for making them so funny, genuine, and infinite.


  1. Wasn't it perfect? I honestly could not have imagined it being more perfect, more to the t. Charlie and Patrick made my heart stop. The fact that the film, like the book, had few (if any!) limits. How it opened up it's soul to us, like we did the first time we read the book.

    Okay, okay, maybe I'm being dramatic, but it was DAMN good.

    1. drama is totally allowed. maybe even required if you've loved this book for as long as I have. I'm determined to see the movie again. and soon! it can only be better the second time, right?
