Have you ever experienced those moments when you see something for the first time and you immediately think “Wow that is so relevant I can’t really explain it but it’s like my whole life’s described/written there“? Going through his drawings were is one of those moments for me… He makes really interesting works of art that I find really amusing and although they’re simple, they’re all definitely worth a million words.

Marc Johns’ work has been everywhere apparently… From New York to Athens to Vancouver, his work’s been exhibited in a lot of places!! His works were also featured in several publications like Newsweek, National Geographic, and The New York Times.

He makes these things with pens and watercolour and… wow just look at these and these will explain everything that I’m trying to say hahaha

Looking for Audrey, Wait!

Image

When her ex writes a break-up song about her that rockets up the charts, Audrey is suddenly famous–she can’t go out without being mobbed by fans and paparazzi. Readers can take a wild ride with Audrey as she makes headlines, confronts her ex on MTV, and shows the world who she really is. This irresistible, fast-paced novel has a totally hot new paperback cover! Its the song everyones singing. And its about her! But for Audrey, becoming famous overnight equals total, life-changing disaster. . .

Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway is definitely unlike anything I’ve ever read. This is the second time I’ve read this (the first was because a friend of mine suggested it and omg I love her for that) and I still looooooooooove this book. Each chapter starts with a quote from different songs of different bands (that I love by the way) and each quote fits perfectly well on what the chapter is about. This book will give you a glimpse in the life of a fangirl (I should know hahaha!) and it’s pretty accurate! I squealed in a lot of parts omg James is amazing and so is Audrey and Victoria and everyone else. I fell in love with it the first time and I surely fell in love with this book the second time. This book seriously deserves all the praise it received. I highly recommend this one.

*Notice how in almost every book post I do, I say I highly recommend it and it may seem weird but it’s true. I really want all of you to check it out because all these books are amazing 🙂

Miles Halter, a sixteen-year-old with a fascination for last words, begins his scholastic adventure at Culver Creek boarding school in Alabama with an introduction to his roommate Chip “Colonel” Martin, a trailer-bred genius. Chip nicknames the skinny Miles “Pudge” and introduces him to Alaska Young, a beautiful, literate and intellectually gifted teenager with a head full of elaborate pranks. Under the tutelage of his new (and real) friends, Miles learns to drink, smoke, escape punishment, and understand people. A few days following a major, adrenaline-pumping prank, Alaska drives insanely drunk, crashes her car and dies instantly. 

Miles and Chip, both grieving for their lost friend, wondering if she committed suicide or was killed accidentally, search for evidence of the reasons behind her death. They also feel guilty because they were the last people to see her alive and did not stop her from driving drunk. From his experiences with this loss, Miles learns valuable lessons about loyalty, friendship, and life. 

Looking For Alaska by John Green never failed to make me rethink my life. This is another book I just recently reread due to book shortage and I do not regret it. Life’s been shit lately and hey, who knew this was the one to help me. I also almost cried when the thing happened. The characters may be selfish and self-centered and whatnot sometimes but they’re just the perfect group of people thrown into the perfect situation to make the readers see what can be done to get out of this labyrinth of suffering. Like any typical John Green books, I highly recommend this one. 🙂

There’s also quite a lot of booze and mischief.
