as-howarth whispered, "Hey John, what is your reaction to the news that the Riverside district has chosen to ban TFIOS from middle school libraries on the grounds that it deals with mortality and sex? I remember your reactions to similar situations concerning your books have been pretty animated and wondered what you thought?"

I guess I am both happy and sad.

I am happy because apparently young people in Riverside, California will never witness or experience mortality since they won’t be reading my book, which is great for them.

But I am also sad because I was really hoping I would be able to introduce the idea that human beings die to the children of Riverside, California and thereby crush their dreams of immortality.

Imagine a world where people only die if they know about death. 

(How quickly) would everyone become immortal? What do you think will happen? Will there come a point wherein everyone hides the the concept of death from a generation and the concept will die out? Can you even do that? You can’t teach any form of history, or even family trees, because every previous generation has died (what about pets and other animals? is it only human mortality that counts?). Infant mortality would drop to zero though. 

If people only can die if they know death exist, would anything change at all? 

And so a novel was born.

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 think at the end of the day, what fans want is for your music to be good. What critics want is for your music to be good. What competition is afraid of is if your music is good." — Taylor on going pop (x)

(A little rant I had on twitter earlier). Taylor sees things in words the way a painter may see things in shapes and I think it’s disgusting that people try to shame her for that. I have never understood how people can make a mockery of her songwriting ability when it’s a talent??? people are stupid I hate people

I think that when you’re making your way up in the music industry, you have all these heroes and the reasons why they are your heroes. As soon as you get into the industry, your guidelines change a little bit. For me, my heroes now are great people first and great artists second.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT OUT OF THE WOODS IS THAT THE LYRICS ARE SOMEWHAT SAD WHILE THE BEAT IS FAST PACED AND HAPPY AND I JUST THINK IT REALLY PORTRAYS THE BITTERSWEET FEELING YOU GET WHEN YOU REMINISCE ABOUT A CERTAIN TIME IN YOUR LIFE

bring me the horizon is my favourite. || "I think for me, beauty is sincerity. I think that there are so many different ways that someone can be beautiful, you know, someone is so funny that it makes them beautiful no matter how they look, because they’re sincere in it. Or somebody who’s really emotional, and moody and thoughtful and stoic, but that makes them beautiful because that’s sincerely who they are. Or you look out into the crowd and you see someone so happy that they’re smiling from ear to ear, and that sincerity comes through. I think that’s what makes somebody beautiful. And I’ve never felt like there’s just one way to be beautiful, you know, tall or short, straight hair or curly, or whatever some people have their definitions of “their types”. You know, for me I think that when I meet someone and there’s that magical thing about them that makes them unforgettable, that they’re sincere and honest in whoever they are, be that funny, happy, sad, going through a rough time, sarcastic, I think that these personality traits that come through when somebody is really sincere is what makes them beautiful."
