I've read Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series, so I expected this book to be just as good or even better, but I don't think it was. I was kind of disappointed. I liked the length, but I felt it was pretty slow.   Get it from the Library

In The Perks of Being A Wallflower, freshman Charlie learns the true meaning of friendship, and the goods and bads of being in high school. Charlie is a loner to start off the story, but upon meeting Sam and Patrick, two erratic seniors, his whole high school image changes. Good story and plot. I'd recommend it to anybody who's scared to try something new.  Get it from the Library

This story follows the life of a man with a dark and twisted secret. A memory of something so disturbing that he tries to forget it by releasing his anxieties and emotions through paintings depicting dark and adventurous scenes. I enjoyed this book because I love horror. I would not recommend this to anyone who does not enjoy disturbing depictions.. However, if you love dark and twisted tales, and you're either an adult, or you're mature enough to appreciate the story and not let it haunt you, I would highly recommend this book for you.  Get it from the Library

This illustrated story follows the life of a girl with OCD, but not the clean-everything sort of OCD. The main character is obsessed with her understanding of herself as a 'bad' person. She becomes overwhelmed by violent and almost homicidal thoughts as she navigates through her life while trying to keep a grip with reality. I enjoyed reading this because it becomes very emotional as you start to get immersed in this girl's life, seeing how she deals with these terrible thoughts while remaining calm on the outside. I would recommend this book to any mature person who has experienced emotional issues, and enjoys illustrated, emotional stories.  Get it from the Library
