Bookworm #2: Looking for Alaska by John Green

Hello everyone. This post is going to be my second ever book post. To be honest, it feels like my first since I have not written one in quite a while. I have stolen the name bookworm from one of my favourite blogs and book reviewer ***Lizzie over at Blue October*** Honestly check her out; she has given me so many books to read.

This book review is on the ever so popular and ever so hyped: John Green's Looking For Alaska.  At first I was so excited to read this. However, the book did not really 'pull me in,' therefore I neglected it for quite a while. I was determined to finish it though, and found that it did get interesting in the middle and towards the end. I think anyone who has read this book will agree with me on this; the most exciting part is when they are in the Barn. 

It was a lovely read, though. It did teach me quite a few things as well and that is: 

  1. everyone has a past and everyone's past is different.
  2. you shouldn't let your friends leave whilst they are drunk and angry.
  3. life is like a labyrinth and everyone's labyrinth has different obstacles and a different maze all together.
I would recommend reading this though. I am really looking forward to reading 'Paper Towns' which I bought from the Kindle Store on my Nexus and 'The Fault in Our Stars,' which loads of my friends have read and they say it is amazing!

Have you read Looking For Alaska? What did you think? Or if you haven't, which book are you reading now?
