The Perks of Being a Wallflower, by Stephen Chbosky. I swear, that is one of the greatest books I have ever read!

On The Road by Jack Kerouac. It's amazing.

Fear and loathing in las vegas. Hunter S. Thompson is an amazing author.

I'm almost finished with it. I don't understand the hype about it... It's okay, just not AMAZING like everyone says it is. It's seemed like, throughout the entire book, it's trying to be like The Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger, whish is my favourite book...

Follow me, I'm pretty awesome


Gimme sympathy,
after all of this is gone.
Who would you rather be?
Beatles or the Rolling Stones?
Oh,seriously,
You're gonna make mistakes.
You're young.
Come on, baby.
Play me somethin'
like 'Here Comes the Sun'

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is on my to-read list but haven't got round to it yet

I think everyone should read Harry Potter, particularly if they've seen the movies too, because the books are just so much better.

I love love loved The Perks of Being a Wallflower!!

I'd recommend reading "Unwind" by Neal Shusterman. It's mostly fiction/fantasy, even though it's typically under Sci-Fi. I loved it.


’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the [mome raths] outgrabe.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time - Mark Haddon
Great Apes - Will Self (probably 16+, lots of sex/drugs, not in a porn way though)
The Memory Keeper's Daughter - Kim Edwards (heartbreaking, but a great read)


You can't move mountains by whispering at them.

The Hunger Games. Best book I've ever read, but was too afraid to read the next one. Even looking at the book makes me feel a bit creeped out. Agreed that it's the best book ever though.


And she turns up the music, to drown out her life.

22/12/2014 was the last date I self-harmed. The longest I have gone so far is 1 year, 2 months and 5 days. This time, I hope I can give up! New record: 1 year 6 months! Yay!!
