When I posted about this earlier I had only just thought it up. I was so excited that I had to go ahead a mention it on my blog. Since then, I’ve been working things out in my head. I have an idea of what I want to do.
First of all, I’m going to hold a giveaway toward the end of August. Up for grabs will be the new movie tie-in edition of The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Look out for that!
Beginning in September, I’m going to put my tempting new releases aside and focus on Charlie and the books he reads. I’ve read The Perks of Being a Wallflower a million times, but this time I’m going to do a sort of read along fused with a reading challenge. As I read, I’m going to stop along the way to pick up the books that Charlie reads (unless I’ve already read them) and I’ll listen to the music Charlie listens to and I’ll watch the movies Charlie watches. I doubt I’ll be able to read all of the books he reads, but I’m sure as hell going to try. So most of my reviews and posts in September will relate to The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
I would love it if you joined in. This will be a no pressure event. If you’ve never read The Perks of Being a Wallflower, here’s your chance. Or maybe you just want to read one or two of the books Charlie reads in the book. Maybe you just want to post about the awesome music or movies. Even a simple post about what the book means to you or a review of the movie adaptation would be great. Absolutely anything relating this wonderful book and the movie adaptation that’s coming out is exactly what this event is about.
Here is a form for anyone who wants to be involved in this event in some way. It includes the list of books, music and movies mentioned in The Perks of Being a Wallflower. You’re not making any promises, it’s just so I know if there’s any interest. I would really appreciate it if you would also tweet this post or share it with friends to get the word out.
Now I’m crossing my fingers that people will want to be involved because I’m doing this either way, but it will be more fun if there are other bloggers involved.
