Mailbox Monday -- November 5th!



Welcome to Mailbox Monday which is hosted today by Bermuda Onion. Last week was a light week for me with only one book, but it is all good because it is one that I really want to read (and I will have to wait until my usually non-reader stepdaughter reads it first -- now how cool is that!):

1) Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. Publisher's Summary. Standing on the fringes of life . . . Offers a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor.

Since its publication, stephen chbosky’s haunting debut novel has received critical acclaim, provoked discussion and debate, grown into a cult phenomenon with over a million copies in print, and inspired a major motion picture. The perks of being a wallflower is a story about what it’s like to travel that strange course through the uncharted territory of high school. The world of first dates, family dramas, and new friends. Of sex, drugs, and the rocky horror picture show. Of those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.

Personal purchase.

    Thanks for sharing and enjoy!
