I hope everyone had a great first week of October! Hi to my new followers and old. The past week has been pretty busy IRL; the school work is piling on, that's for sure. I have a few assignments due this week and next week that will take a bit of my time. Plus the work on my godson's birthday party is still going strong; just a couple more weeks! I haven't had much time to update the blog, but I'm busy writing up a few reviews that should be up in the next few days. One downside that's kind of setting me back is me being sick. :( It's that time of year when everyone's getting sick, it seems. I'm currently typing this up wrapped up in a blanket with a cup of tea and a box of Kleenex.

It's a chance to share news ~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.
I also had the extreme pleasure of watching The Perks of Being a Wallflower at the cinema on Friday (opening day). I already had high, high expectations with it being my favourite book ever, and it definitely did not disappoint. There were a few things that were cut out, but that's pretty much inevitable when it comes to book to movie adaptations. I'm really glad that Stephen Chbosky was able to write the screenplay and direct the film. I don't think anyone else would have done it justice. It was so well-acted, the cast was incredible, everyone from Emma Watson to Nina Dobrev... there were some big names from this generation but it didn't take away from the story at all. Ezra Miller as Patrick was the stand-out for me. Amazing. Logan Lerman was the perfect Charlie, I had no doubt in my mind that he would do a great job. By the end of it, my bag of popcorn was drowning in my tears. Perks fans will be happy with this.
