I'm a fandom princess :) I love books, movies, series, music and make up.
And when people try to minimize your pain they are doing you a disservice. And when you try to minimize your own pain, you’re doing yourself a disservice…Don’t do that…The truth is that it hurt because it was real. It hurt because it mattered. And that’s an important thing to acknowledge to yourself. But that doesn’t mean that it won’t end, it won’t get better. Because it will.
This is the special 10th Anniversary edition of Looking for Alaska, available for preorder as of like five minutes ago. The cover was designed by the great Rodrigo Corral, and the book will contain a new introduction, an extensive Q&A, notes from editor Julie Strauss-Gabel about the revision process, an updated essay by me about last words, and several deleted scenes from the early drafts of the book.
It’s hard to believe that ten years have passed. I feel so lucky that Alaska is still in print and still finding readers (some of whom were in preschool when it was first published). Thanks to everyone who has read it and shared it this past decade, and I hope you enjoy the anniversary edition!
I DID A THING YOU GUYS. fishingboatproceeds (John Green) has impacted my life more than I can even express in words. I’ve learned important things from not only his YouTube videos, but also his books. And I am unironically enthusiastic about this tattoo. Don’t Forget to Be Awesome
THIS IS SO AWESOME!
