The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky


Format: Paperback

Charlie is a freshman. And while he’s not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years yet socially awkward, he is a wallflower, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it. Charlie is attempting to navigate his way through uncharted territory; the world of first dates and mixed tapes, family dramas and new friends; the world of sex, drugs and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, when all one requires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite.

I Heart New York by Lindsey Kelk


Format: Paperback

So I got this book for Christmas but I have already read it. I bought it on my Kindle but I wanted to have a paperback copy as well.

And I am glad I got it.

Becky has just posted her review of this book and when she started reading it I wanted to read it at the same time so I could refresh my memory of what the book is about. I haven’t read her review yet so it will be interesting to see how they compare.

It’s Official. Angela Clark is in love – with the most fabulous city in the world.

Fleeing her cheating boyfriend and clutching little more than a crumpled bridesmaids dress, a pair of Louboutins and her passport, Angela jumps on a plane – destination NYC.

Holed up in a cute hotel room, Angela gets a New York makeover from her NBF Jenny and a whirlwind tour of the city that never sleeps. Before she knows it, Angela is dating two sexy guys. And, best of all, she gets to write about it in her new blog (Carrie Bradshaw eat your heart out). But it’s one thing telling readers about your romantic dilemmas, it’s another figuring them out for yourself…

Angela has fallen head over heels for the big apple, but does she heart New York more than home? Continue reading
