The Perks of Being a Wallflower - My favorite book in high school. Since the movie is coming out, I think everyone should pick up a copy and read it.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. One of my favorite books I read in high school is now a major motion picture. =D
This is one of my favorite books. I just reread it because it was made into a movie. The movie was very good as well. It was written, directed, and produced by the author of the book. Worth seeing and reading.

Granddaughters were here and suggested I read a Zombie book! I'm 70 but really enjoyed Mira Grant's Blackout...The Newsflesh Trilogy.
"Now, the year is 2041, and the investigation that began with the election of President Ryman is much bigger than anyone had assumed. With too much left to do and not much time left to do it in, the surviving staff of After the End Times must face mad scientists, zombie bears, rogue government agencies-and if there's one thing they know is true in post-zombie America, it's this: Things can always get worse."

Feed (Newsflesh, Book 1) by Mira Grant. This one of the best zombie books I have read. You'll want to put #2 on hold before you finish this one.
“There is nothing so patient, in this world or any other, as a virus searching for a host.” Feed (Newsflesh, #1), Mira Grant. Pinner writes: "Excellent spin on the zombie apocalypse. The plague is unwittingly manufactured by different scientists creating separate, & otherwise wholly effective, cures for cancer & the common cold. When they come together they create ZOMBIES. Told by appealing news bloggers as they race to learn the horrifying truth. For anyone willing to scare themselves silly."
The NewsFlesh trilogy. Definitely worth reading!
Mira Grant - Feed (Newsflesh, #1) In 2014, two experimental viruses escaped the lab and combined to form a single airborne pathogen that swept around the world in a matter of days. It cured cancer. It stopped a thousand cold and flu viruses in their tracks. It raised the dead. Millions died in the chaos that followed. Set twenty years after the Rising, the Newsflesh trilogy follows a team of bloggers, led by Georgia and Shaun Mason, as they search for the brutal truths behind the infection.)
