Looking For Alaska ♥

You know those lazy, summer days where you tell yourself you're going to do many, many things but then you just kind of lie around in your pj's until one o'clock in the afternoon reading?

Well, I never regret those days. I feel creative, inspired, and all I want to do is LIE on this cloud of comfort and happiness.  Do you know what I'm talking about?

A few days ago I finished Looking For Alaska by John Green. Before I start talking about it, I must say that I'm sort of annoyed with how The Fault In Our Stars just recently became even MORE popular than it already was, all because of the movie. I know everyone should benefit from the greatness of that book, but I feel like now it has become more of a fashion accessory than a book of great philosophical content. You do not know how many people have posted a picture of that book to Instagram! 


You should definitely read Looking For Alaska. John Green just has that magical touch ; he has that way of pulling you into a book and capturing you so that you can't quite get out  before he turns your world upside down and makes you question a lot more about life than you used to. 
"How will I ever get out of this labyrinth!" is the main question he explores through a series of events that Miles Halter and his friends go through.

You cannot help falling in love with the story, the story of Miles Halter, a brilliant, funny, and nonetheless social-outcasted teen who starts a "new" life at a boarding school in Alabama. When he gets there, he makes a bunch of friends who change his way of viewing the world, and most importantly, he falls in love with Alaska, a crazy, emotional girl. Miles's feelings for Alaska are so poetic. And here comes my favorite quote of all times:

"so I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was a drizzle and she was a hurricane."

Need I say more? :')

Read that book. Just read it. The ending will leave you speechless (And you might cry. You've been warned).


  1. Mm! I loved that book, and while I like the Fault in our Stars, I felt like it was no better than his other books. I liked Paper Towns the most!

  2. Aaaahhhh!!! I LOVE that book!!! And that quote is just so beautiful, my favourite quote in the book. The story is so beautiful and sad. John Green does have a way in breaking our hears. T_T

    I need to read all of his books.

  3. I reecently finished this book as well! I started it and it was finished in an hour! I still prefer tfios - I agree, it isn't being recognised anymore for it's fantastic content, it has become an accessory - but it is still a brilliant book!


  4. um. john green..? TOTALLY. i'll definitely be checking the book out!
