    Shameless Recommendation

    Kyleigh Jane Alt Rom Mini <Banner

    Every once in a great while, you read a book that not only engages and entertains you, but burrows deep into your guts and changes you. Looking For Alaska is one of those rare gems. Pure and profound, this book is a simple honest truth. The questions of life, love, existence, suffering, surviving it all, and seeking the "Great Perhaps". An expertly written cast of incredibly lovable characters- I laughed with them, I hurt with them, I loved with them, and I was changed with them. Please please take a chance. Trust me. Looking For Alaska is a forever favorite that I encourage everyone to read.

    BONUS: While not super smutty, this is a book that you can talk about and recommend to anyone. TRUST ME. Don't miss out. [September 2014]

    Publisher Synopsis

    via Amazon

    Miles “Pudge” Halter is done with his safe life at home. His whole life has been one big non-event, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave “the Great Perhaps” even more (Francois Rabelais, poet). He heads off to the sometimes crazy 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. She is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart. Then. . . . After. Nothing is ever the same.

    [su_quote]”So this guy,” I said, standing in the doorway of the living room. “Fran̤ois Rabelais. He was this great poet. And his last words were ‘I go to seek a Great Perhaps.’ That’s why I’m going. So I don’t have to wait until I die to start seeking a Great Perhaps.”[/su_quote]

    [su_quote]”Don’t you know who you love, Pudge? You love the girl who makes you laugh and shows you porn and drinks wine with you. You don’t love the crazy sullen bitch.” And there was something to that, truth be told.[/su_quote]

    [su_quote]She taught me everything I knew about crawfish and kissing and pink wine and poetry. She made me different.[/su_quote]

    [su_quote]We had to forgive to survive in the labyrinth. There were so many of us who would have to live with things done and things left undone that day. Things that did not go right, things that seemed okay at the time because we could not see the future. If only we could see the endless string of consequences that result from our smallest actions. But we can’t know better until knowing better is useless.[/su_quote]

    GENRE

    I suppose I was introduced to romance at an early age. When I was around 10 years old, I happened upon a highlighted and dog eared copy of “The Joy Of Sex” on my mother’s bookshelf. I was shocked. I was fascinated. Maybe it was the 1970s power muffs, maybe it was the mustaches, maybe it was phrases such as “tongue bath”, who knows. As a teen, hiding Danielle Steel and VC Andrews paperbacks, I think I was drawn to reading romance/erotica because I felt like I was reading something I wasn't supposed to. Something forbidden. As an adult, I enjoy the truth of love. The triumph and tragedy. The build and the break. I'm drawn to stories with grit, and substance, and meat on their bones. The format breakers, the unusual. I’m always searching for that next great read. The story that burrows deep into your guts, and changes you.
