The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky

the book i read was about this kid named charlie he write to somebody unknown and hes discusses his past and other thing like when his aunt died and bestfriend commited suicide hes a very good reader and writer and his english teacher notices that. he befriends two seniors and together they go on adventures and charlie has his first kiss. he also has flashbacks or traumatic expierences

 

   This book connects to the world because there are alot of cases where kids might have been molested or might have been in a traumatizing events and that might cause them to be as not social as the other kids and do and go through some of the things that  charlie also goes through on a daily basis.

 

   I would reccomend this book to other people because its a good book and you can learn some stuff from reading this book. Also because its kind of realistic. i would reccomend this to people that like young adult fiction.

Plenty of Adventure and Romance in This Victorian Novel
The Perks of Loving a Scoundrel - Jennifer McQuiston

“I did offer you marriage.”
“And I refused, with good reason. Marrying you would be a nightmare.”
There was a moment’s pause. “Take it from someone who suffers nightmares, Miss Channing. You misuse the word. Either that or you sorely misunderstand the pleasures to be found in my bed.”

The Perks of Loving a Scoundrel was such a fun time! This Victorian historical had an unexpected romance, plenty of adventure as our protagonists investigated an assassination plot, nice bits of humor tucked in here and there, and friendships being tested in dramatic ways.

 

Jennifer McQuiston always writes a solid story with unique characters and events. And this third installment in the Seduction Diaries had two protagonists who were never taken seriously trying to unravel the mystery of who was aspiring to assassinate someone of importance. Mary and West were thrown together in their efforts to thwart the would-be assassins, considering everyone else just brushed them aside when they went looking for assistance.

The Perks of Loving a Scoundrel
The Perks of Loving a Scoundrel - Jennifer McQuiston This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life.

This book was just a whole lot of fun to read! I enjoy a good historical romance every now and then so when this book popped up on my radar, I decided to take a closer look. Once I read the summary, I knew that I had to read this book since the main character always seems to have her nose in a book. I felt an odd kinship with the heroine before I even started reading the book based on the books description.

Mary has spent her life safely tucked away with her books. She goes to London to spend time with her sister who is in the later stages of pregnancy. When she seeks the safety of the library at a crowed event, her life takes a sudden turn and not only is her reputation destroyed but she has overheard an assassination plot. West is scoundrel known for all of his ill deeds. When he sees the lady from the garden go to the library during the party, he follows her. Now he must deal with the ramifications of tarnishing the reputation of an innocent while trying to figure out the assassination plot that they overheard.

The characters in this book were great. Mary had a lot of spunk and was not at all afraid of saying no to others. I loved how she seemed so educated on just about every subject just from reading about it. West was fun. He didn't make apologies for his prior behavior and owned up to everything when questioned. He seemed like he was actually a much more caring man than he showed through his behavior. It was really nice watching his character develop throughout this book.

I ended up really liking this pair as a couple. West treated Mary with a lot of respect and honestly valued all of her opinions. I didn't feel a lot of chemistry between them at the start of the book but as their relationship developed so did their chemistry. I loved how each of these characters seemed so much stronger together than they did apart. There was enough heat in some parts of the book to keep things interesting.

I would highly recommend this book to fans of historical romance. This is the third book in the Seduction Diaries series but it really can be read perfectly fine as a stand alone novel. I have read any of the prior books in the series and had no trouble keeping up with the story. I definitely plan to look for more books from this author in the future.

I received an advance reader edition of this book from Avon Books via Edelweiss for the purpose of providing an honest review.

Initial Thoughts
I had a lot of fun reading this one!

Not For Me

Audiobook I dropped this at 50%. It was just okay for me, I couldn't relate the the characters and disliked the format. The narrator was fantastic

The Perks Of Being A Wallflower Review
The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky

I read this in one sitting, I simply could not put the book down it was so lovely to read a book where there wasn't any vindictive characters or an 'Evil person' that had it in for the main character. I never believed that one book could address so many events at once and not have it overwhelm the main plot line and just helped develop the characters. I really loved the format of the book with charlie sending letters to someone who is anonymous which helped me to connect to Charlie.

 

I felt that even at my age I could relate to Charlie at certain aspects with his life, seeing Charlie develop from being alone and then finding people who let him in and helped Charlie become his own person in the end and Charlie was able to develop as a person. This book was a nice read because nothing really dark happens and it allowed me to always be smiling whist I was reading which was a nice change to the mix of emotions I normally get when I am reading.

 

I would recommend this book to anyone that wants a quick read and anyone that loves reading a book that does address a lot of different subjects.

 

Thanks for Reading this short review.
