Eirelyn (ladyeirelyn) | 1244 comments I'm waiting for my digital hold to come through. I'm 1st in line and the person before me only has it for 14 days, so it shouldn't be too much longer. :D

Trisha (trishabisen) | 2282 comments I have my copy but I’m to finish off two other buddy reads before I start this one. Mostly, I’ll start by the end of this fortnight.

Trisha (trishabisen) | 2282 comments I’m starting this tonight!

@Eirelyn - How about you? Did you get your hands on the copy?

@Dani - How much have you read? And how do you find it so far?

Catherine | 601 comments I've already read this, otherwise I'd be joining you. I definitely want to follow this along and see what you all think of this book! I read it back in high school and remembered thinking that it was able to voice some of my own insecurities without me realizing that that's what was happening.


message 8: by Dani (new)

Dani Thornton | 9 comments Just finished it. It made me feel every emotion, and really sympathise with the main characters. Interested to see how it’s portrayed in the film version!

Trisha (trishabisen) | 2282 comments Finished this a few hours ago and loved it! I’m embarrassed to say that I didn’t know what a wallflower meant before I came across this book and now that I know the meaning, I wonder how many wallflowers I know in real life. Unsurprisingly, it’s a big number! Chbosky’s writing is hypnotic and lyrical! He puts across his views on topics like (view spoiler)

Eirelyn (ladyeirelyn) | 1244 comments I just finished Part 2, and while I'm enjoying it, Charlie reminds me so much of someone I know. Just the rambly narrative of someone very young. I can't help but imagine the person I know when I read this because she converses in a very similar manner.

Eirelyn (ladyeirelyn) | 1244 comments I just finished this tonight. I liked it overall, and it dealt with some heavy issues. Trisha, I agree with you about (view spoiler).

I think the biggest issue for me was the way Charlie told the story. Facts. Facts. And more facts. "I did this. He did that. He said this. Then, I cried." (view spoiler).

I did like the characters in this story. I also really enjoyed how the book dealt with a lot of heavy life topics. All of the book & pop culture references were fun (I kind of wish there had been a few more of the latter throughout). As a whole, I enjoyed it and would recommend it.

So aptly put, Eirelyn! Can’t agree with you more.

Fenris (fenrislyulf) | 15 comments I read it late in 2019, but would love to be part of the 2020 conversation, if that's okay?

Eirelyn (ladyeirelyn) | 1244 comments Of course, Fenris. Join right in. :D
