Looking for Alaska by John Green - £5.03 from Amazon
This isn't a lipstick review - yes, I'm shocked too! This isn't a book review, nor will it be a regular feature or series on my blog but simply me sharing some beautiful quotes with you from one of my favourite books. I don't want to give anything away, hence why I'm not reviewing this book because I went into it without knowing anything about it, and I'd recommend anyone else do the same.

In short, this book moved me to tears, made me laugh and ultimately broke my heart. And that is what I love in a book. There were several occasions when reading this book that I had to put it down to wipe my tears away, to question things not only in the book but in my life, to sit back and appreciate what was in front of me and always had been. John Green seems to have an uncanny knack of capturing emotion both within the characters, and within the reader and I can't wait to read more of his work. I am in complete and utter awe of his writing abilities and style. Parts of this book still resonate with me today, months after reading it and, to me, that is the sign of a bloody good book and a bloody good writer.

Which book did you last read and if you have it to hand, I'd love to hear a line from it!


  1. I've literally just started reading this book and it's already got me gripped!

  2. I love this book. I'm seeing John Green at the Glasgow Concert Hall on Friday and I'm so excited! x

  3. I've been meaning to read this book for ages - definitely going to have to start now!
