I really enjoyed The Perks of Being a Wallflower. A friend of mine, who is also a children's librarian, had been suggesting it to me for years. Then one day I was in between reads and picked it up. I was sorry that I had waited so long to read it. I highly recommend it.

Now I'll check out the others lists.

I first read The Perks of Being a Wallflower as a teenager (on my own) and really enjoyed it. It is a book that, 10 years later, I have read over and over again every few years. It really bothers we when parent protest books like this one because they must be extremely naive as to what their children experience in middle school and high school. The things that Charlie goes through offer great discussion and should make kids a little more thoughtful. I am sorry that some of these parents are too blinded to see that.


This is great. I've been looking for something just like this. Our community college will be starting a partnership with our local school system for an Early College program. Our library is looking to make sure that we have the required reading to support these new students.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
