Francesca | 786 comments I'm also reading Middlesex and Why Not Me next year and I'm really looking forward to both. I also absolutely love The Perks of Being a Wallflower, both the book and the movie, so I hope you enjoy it.

Amanda Brady | 70 comments Thanks! I honestly never even thought of The Perks of Being a Wallflower as a book to read until I saw it on someone else's list. I think this is going to be a great challenge and I'm going to find a lot of great reads I'd normally never pick up.
