Life.Love.Beauty by Keegan Allen

Keegan Allen's Life.Love.Beauty was my favourite book release of last year. It's hard to describe just how badly I've wanted a book like this to be released - I'd always hoped John Mayer would create a similar book, filled with photos, words, lyrics and much more, so we could gain insight into his unique and creative brain.

Predominantly comprising of film photos and poetry, the book give an insight into both Keegan's professional and personal lives dating back to his childhood. He experiments with various types of photography and 35mm films - it was great to see him utilise Lomochrome Purple as you can see is true love and passion for photography. If you follow him on Snapchat (lifelovebeautyb) you will see that he's made many videos about cameras and photography which I love.

Fans will love the photos included of the Pretty Little Liars cast. There are truly some wonderful shots and I have to admit that this was my favourite section of the book. The cast are so vibrant and beautiful that it's great to see their relationships and to get a glimpse behind the scenes of episodes we've watched on the tv.

Keegan includes captions and little notes about each of his cast mates which is lovely. My favourite one in particular was about Ashley Benson - she was quite standoffish at first and now they're like best friends.

The quality of the pages is decent. It's not a high quality photo book that you would pay up to $100 for. I suspect that due to Keegan's fan base being so young they wanted to keep costs down to make it affordable for that age group which is understandable. The paper pages are thicker than a regular novel, but they are not high quality photo book paper.

I've got to admit that I'm a sucker for hardcover photo books that are great on a coffee table, and this is one that I will always have out for other people to look at. I think anyone who loves photography and emotions will love looking through this book. It's great to look at just a few pages, or to read as a whole.

I would highly recommend this book for any PLL fan and anyone that's interested in seeing a book made purely of love and passion. Please let me know your thoughts if you've picked it up - I'd love to know if you loved it as much as I did. ♥
