Keen Cover Friday #5

During Keen Cover Friday, we post a book cover that totally attracts and captures our eyes the moment we laid them on that cover and one that might make others swoon over its beauty just as much as we did!

For this Friday, I present to you, The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky!



  1. The cute handwriting font.
  2. The explosion of words.
  3. How the title overlapped the scattered words.
  4. The pinned picture of the boy.

I totally fell in love with the random cover of this book! It shows so many emotions just by looking at the cover. The photo of the boy actually was a big +++! Book covers are one of the many reasons why I love books.

Book Description:

Charlie is a freshman. And while he’s not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years yet socially awkward, he is a wallflower, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it. Charlie is attempting to navigate his way through uncharted territory: the world of first dates and mixed tapes, family dramas and new friends; the world of sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, when all one requires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite. But Charlie can’t stay on the sideline forever. Standing on the fringes of life offers a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a deeply affecting coming-of-age story that will spirit you back to those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.

  1. I actually haven’t seen this cover before, but I like it! When I bought the book, I bought the one with the green cover and the picture up in the corner (was it a picture of feet? For some reason that’s the image that comes to mind)… And while I liked that it was simple enough for my eye to keep going back to it, it didn’t really scream at me to pick it up. I really like the handwriting on this one though (especially since the first line is “Girls are weird” haha) and the picture of the boy. I think this would definitely catch my attention in a bookstore!

    • Really? The green cover was the original cover. When I planned on buying a copy of the book, that cover was no longer available (or maybe it’s just hard to find, since the copies they send here are the new ones). So I got this, because I don’t want the movie version. Haha. And yes, the hand-writing on the cover really catches people’s attention. :))
