I have stalled so very much whilst getting around to writing this review, I honestly don’t know why. It’s either because I don’t know exactly how I feel about it or the world is exercising every possibly distraction towards me, as to stop this review. Fear not! As is said: the show must go on. And well this review must be composed and published… so here my dear reader it is.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock as of late, you will know that John Green’s newest book has been received very well. New York Times has labelled it a #1 best seller, teenagers can’t stop reading it and the reviews just keep on coming! Obviously I joined on the band wagon and decided to devote my weekend to reading it.
Summary: When Vicky is hit by a car her death has a huge impact on everyone’s lives especially Jade her best friend. Jade is devastated but that isn’t the end of it, Vicky comes back as a ghost, refusing to let Jade move on. For a while that’s alright with Jade but soon she realises she needs to make her own decisions and new friends.
So I went to see the movie: The Perks Of Being A Wallflower & read the book! Initially I was going to wait until I posted about this movie/novel because I wanted to have a decisive opinion on whether I would enjoy the movie/novel as much or not without the hype surrounding it.
Since this is the first year of my life growing up that there will be no Harry Potter movie or book released I thought it was all over for me. After J.K.Rowlings wonderful, cleverly constructed world of Wizards & Witches, on flying broomsticks, wands and spells – I thought it was all over.
