Kelly (Radiant Shadows) - I really need to pick up a copy of this. It sounds like something I would really enjoy.

Ps. I’m loving the idea of this feature!

Shelve It: October 07, 2012 - […] We introduced a new feature, Attention, Attention, and Estelle kicked it off with The Perks of Being a Wallflower […]

VeganYANerds - I did like Perks but I don’t think I did as much as most readers, part of me wonders if I would have liked it more as a teen? But I am keen to see the movie!

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I knew I was right to be excited about this new feature even before I knew what it was. You girls come up with the best ideas! I loved Perks when I read it, though it actually took me a while to get into it. Now though, I think it’s one of the most interesting and thought-provoking books I’ve ever read! Can’t wait to see the movie 🙂

elena - loving this feature! i read this in high school but umm don’t really remember much about it. i’m trying to figure if i want to re-read before the film or not, which i do want to watch.

p.s. kudos for you for not using “and i swear in the moment we were infinite.”

Jess @ Gone with the Words - Great first pick for a fun new feature!!

The trailer certainly doesn’t show the darker side of this book/movie, but it’s there, trust me. I think you’ll be happy with it. 🙂 I loved it..so. hard. The whole cast was amazing.

Kristen Evey - This is one of those “classics” that I’m ashamed to say I’ve never read! I’ve always had good intentions, but no actions to back it up. I think I must read this soon, especially with the movie coming out (I cannot watch the movie before I read the book. Ever.). Great review. Glad this book holds up well over time.

And also, you didn’t like Rent? Ah! I love that movie. 🙂 But then, I’ve never seen the musical.

Ginger @ GReads! - Hands down, my most favorite book. Nothing I have ever read has moved me the way this book did. And then the movie?! Woah. It’s a simple story, with so much depth. I adore Charlie and literally ached for his character. There is something in that innocence that is so pure.

Estelle: Shelve It (9/2/2012)

Holy moly… how is it September already? From the library: The Lost Summer by Kathryn Williams From sweet people: Cleopatra’s Moon by Vicky Alvear Shecter (Thanks Tara!) The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky (Thanks SmallGirls PR!) — and their Spotify Perks playlist! Bought for my Nook: Close Enough to Touch by Victoria […]

Magan - ESTELLE! I KNOW it’s super weird I’m commenting on our own blog, but I LOVE YOU! 🙂 Thank you so much for your sweet message!! xoxoxoxo

And to Mandee and Elena — thank you both so much for the birthday wishes! xoxo

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - Ooh, The Perks of Being a Wallflower! That’s going to be a fun read 🙂

September 3, 2012 - 10:11 am

Tara - I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on Cleopatra’s Moon and Send! I’m going to be checking out The Lost Summer – you know I love camp books 🙂

September 2, 2012 - 9:06 pm

VeganYANerds - I really want to read Send, it sounds like a great read and I’ve added The Lost Summer to my tbr list, thanks!

I know what you mean about book bans, I’m on one but I keep accidentally buying books 😉 And happy birthday to Magan again! xox

September 2, 2012 - 4:21 pm

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - You got some good stuff Estelle! I really need to pick up The Perks of Being a Wallflower. It’s becoming a movie, yet I STILL haven’t read it! This needs to be fixed soon. 😉

Enjoy all your books Estelle! <3

September 2, 2012 - 2:23 pm

elena - I read Perks AGES ago but don’t really remember much about it, besides the often quote lines. I should re-read before the film too. Also hooray for having Monday off and another happy birthday to Magan too. 🙂

Sara (of the Page Sage) - I just reread Perks of Being a Wallflower this week! It’s such a great book- I hope you like it!

Happy Reading!

September 2, 2012 - 9:15 am

April Books & Wine - What a weird/awesome coincidence that you got Cleopatra’s Moon! I just started listening to that yesterday while cleaning the computer/clothes/bookshelf room. 🙂 I hope you enjoy it as much as I am (hint: that means I hope you enjoy it A LOT).

Happy reading Estelle! 😀

Attention, Attention! The Perks of Being a Wallflower (A Re-Read) - […] Magan first reviewed Perks in November of 2011 saying she “adapted quickly to Charlie’s scattered storytelling ways” and sang […]

November 17, 2011 - 4:00 pm

Magan - Hey Ashley! I really hope I like it, too. The book is so short that I actually think they’ll do a good job making the movie. I think they have a lot of room to make it awesome. I hope they don’t let me down. It’s books like my favorites, such as The Hunger Games, that really worries me. So much detail and description that I don’t know if they can pull it off!

November 17, 2011 - 11:42 am

Ashley - I really need to reread this one! I read it a while ago and I really liked it, but I’m not sure I got all out of it that I was supposed to. I read it a bit fast and would love to do a reread and give it a bit more of my attention.

I doubt I’ll watch the movie. I pretty much never watch movies if I’ve read the book first (because I pretty much always hate them) but I do hope you like it!

Meg - I remember this one circulating around my high school years ago and read it myself — but I really couldn’t tell you a thing about it. Sounds like I definitely need to do a re-read!
