Hey everyone! It’s Monday and time to see what I’m reading this week. This meme was created and hosted by Book Journey. It is a place to share what you’re reading this week. 🙂
I’m currently making my way through Looking For Alaska by John Green.
Before. Miles “Pudge” Halter’s whole existence has been one big nonevent, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave the “Great Perhaps” (François Rabelais, poet) even more. He heads off to the sometimes crazy, possibly unstable, and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed-up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young, who is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart.
After. Nothing is ever the same.
I’m only about 23 pages into it so far. It’s giving me a (500) Days of Summer vibe with Miles or “Pudge” being instantly attracted to Alaska. As well as the book every so often saying “# days before” going down to I assume, the latest date at the end, like (500) Days. Oh, it also has the whole name in the title thing too. 🙂
It’s giving me a Garden State vibe too. Alaska seems like your usual manic pixie dream girl, just like Sam.
I’ve got it! Alaska seems like a combination of Sam and…Sam, from Perks of Being A Wallfower. Well then…I just remembered both their names was Sam. That’s…interesting to say the least. 🙂
Anyway so far I like it a bit. I’m so excited now to finish the book and write the review.
What are you guys reading today or this week? What have you finished reading? What do you think you’ll read next? Have you seen either of the movies or read the books above? Let me know. Have a great reading week. 🙂
