Looking For Alaska

I read Looking For Alaska by John Green last week, I think, can't remember!! But yeh, I read it and it was good :) I normally only read fantasy books, but I had this on my reading list for a while and I just needed a little change of scenery. It's still a YA, which is mostly what I read, but it was so good. Nothing much particularly happens. It isn't some fantastic story where something happens on every page. It's just a normal story about some normal kids and a perfectly normal school, but the characters are just so interesting. I suppose because I'm so used to the characters I read about having such in depth stories and backgrounds, I was waiting for the massive twist and connections. Even though there were non, it wasn't a boring story. It was beautifully written and poetic, coming from a male author, I was quite impressed. It is such a bitter sweet tale that deals with love, loss and teenage rebellion. I Laughed and cried along with the characters and as usual I couldn't put it down, I read it two days and I went through so many emotions It was like I was pregnant! (or what I assume it's like to be pregnant) If you want an easy read that has a beautifully sad story or want a break from YA Fantasy and just want something 'normal' I'd say give this little book a go. It's earned it place on my bookshelf :)

I'm now 4 books down for my 12 things for 2012 book goal. According to my Goodreads 2012's reading challenge score keeper i'm 2 books behind! eeek! So I best get cracking and read read read! I feel like I haven't been around these parts for a while, but I only posted yesterday! I'm back at Uni now and I always seem to have other things to do other than blogging. So if I seem absent for a few days...I probably am. Last semester of 3rd year is crazy busy so blogging will definitely be put on the back burner the closer it gets to June (when the degree show is) I'll try and make as much time for blogging as I can, as this is such a lovely little break from reality, but I cant promise anything. I've got a few new Creative Spotlights to share with you soon so I'm not going anywhere yet!! Much Love
