We are not wizards or witches, but muggles. We don't live in a magical world... Hogwarts is not home. But don't let this put you down. We don't need magic to transform our world. We have thousands lives to explore and dystopian worlds to travels. From the words of JK Rowling, "The stories we love the best live in us forever".
It's a Muggle Monday Recommendation is a new weekly meme hosted by Once Upon a Twilight in hope that this story will cast a spell over you and live with you forever.
This week is dedicated to a book that I have such a deep and profound love for, and it comes from none other than the fabulous John Green.
I'm almost positive you thought I was going to say The Fault In Our Stars. Yet another great book, but if you haven't read Looking For Alaska then you are missing out on Green's best book. Seriously, the movie is in the works and I have never been more excited for anything in my life.
This book changed me, and it made me think about things in a different way. Green is usually very good about doing that. But Alaska does it in such a way that it sticks with you. I first read this book about 3 or 4 years ago, and I remember my first reading of it to this day, because it was so profound.
My love for this book cannot be described in words, and I hope that you too can pick it up and fall in love as I did.
