30 Day BC: Day 11 – Your favourite book that has been made into a film

So I've fallen behind with this, sorry. I've just passed my driving test and have being going through the ordeal of buying a car (it's pretty!) and all the non fun things that come with it (tax and insurance). Hopefully I can pick it up Monday.

Anyway.

One of my favourite books is currently being made into a film. It's probably horribly cliched but 'Perks of Being a Wallflower' by Stephen Chomsky is one of my favourite books. It's beautiful. And it's being made into a film with Emma Watson as Sam. Awesome.

30 Day BC: Day 10 – A book you’ve always meant to have read and never got round to

1984 - George Orwell

I had it for ages and then I sold it during a massive purge. I should really read it though.

30 Day BC: Day 9 – A book you read when you feel down

Any of the Janet Evanovich 'Stephanie Plum' series. They are just really funny and easy to read. Stephanie Plum is a bounty hunter (but not in the naff Kiera Knightly/Domino Harvey way) from Trenton, New Jersey, with mad family and friends, a former hooker as a co-worker and has a habit of destroying her cars. There are 17 books in the series at the moment, as well as some novellas. They are just delightfully bonkers and incredibly funny. It's the sort of thing you read when you're really down and need a bit of cheering up.

30 Day BC:Day 8 – The book you can quote best e

I can quote chunks of Catch - 22, mainly because I based my dissertation on it and re - read chunks of it so many times for that.

"'Maybe a long life does have to be filled with many unpleasant conditions if it's to seem long. But in that event who wants one?'
'I do,' Dunbar told him.
'Why?' Clevinger asked.
'What else is there?'"
