For your listening pleasure: The Perks Of Being a Wallflower

I know the movie doesn’t come out until September, but I saw the trailer for The Perks of Being a Wallflower (starring Logan Lerman and Emma Watson, based on the book by Stephen Chbosky) in theaters for the first time the other day and it has been on my mind ever since. Music and playlists are a huge part of the story so I figured it would be a great book to make a reading playlist for. And now, since the movie has yet to be released, I can see how my playlist holds up to the movie soundtrack.

As always, you can listen to the mix right here on 8tracks.
