Fan art from my favorite fandoms. If I had any real artistic talent this is probably what I’d be doing all the time.

Lol sounds about right.
Some FREAKING AWESOME Harry Potter fan art of the marauders creating the map and Fred and George later discovering it.
Well you must be the life of the party
The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Page count: 213

I went into this book feeling a little wary. I’ve been told for the past I dunno, 8 years or so, that I just HAD to read this book, that it was AMAZING etc. I suppose I was worried that I would be disappointed, or that it would be too…”teenagery” for me.
I wasn’t disappointed. The book is young, but it should be. That’s what makes it great. I remembered The Catcher in the Rye several times while reading this, and Charlie’s voice was a gentle echo of Holden’s. Not in a literary theft kind of way, more in the way that says hey, growing up is freaking hard, but it isn’t the end.
I say I can relate to most of the characters I read about, and I suppose that’s true (though I’m not sure if it’s a good thing or not), but I could relate to Charlie especially well. I have felt his emotional turmoil, my early teens were practically nothing but emotional turmoil, and I’m glad this book exists to show kids that they aren’t alone.
My favorite thing about this book was the point it makes that even if things aren’t always perfect, or even okay, that they will improve again. The fact that bad does not mean broken, that sad does not mean ruined, that a rough time doesn’t have to define forever was a reminder that I think we all need sometimes.

Five days. FIVE DAYS. Five daaaaaaaaaays.
In five days, barring any dream crushing changes, I am going home! It has been two very long, very strange (but mostly good) years away and I cannot wait to walk where my heart belongs once again, even if it’s only for two weeks.
So. Damn. Excited.
