The book wasn‘t so captivating but I finished it in front of a campfire with a cup of hot chocolate.
Read my first John green in one day while feeling ill on my day off (which isn‘t fair). It‘s odd finally reading a book that‘s such a big part of pop culture - I feel like I already knew so much of it and almost didn‘t have to read it. But if I think about what it would have been like to read before it was such a big deal and if I‘d been younger I‘d have adored it so it‘s a pick.
I really didn‘t like Margo. I didn‘t enjoy the “ride” enough to say I enjoyed the book. I‘ve read others by John Green and enjoyed it... but this one I couldn‘t get into or really enjoy. Hmm now considering if it‘s worth watching the movie...

I tried to be all artsy with my book pic (hence the crumpled paper). Hubby kinda laughed at me 😂😂
This is now my favorite John Green. I want to go back and reread it just so I can soak it in a little more ♥️♥️♥️ #NWC

Paper Towns by John Green had a very deep impact on me that I cannot express in words. I didn't expect it to be this different an experience for me. Keeping the story aside, it gave me different readings on life. We could see the world where people had strings. Us as puppets. We can see the world where people are leaves of grass, interconnected yet stranded or as vessels that are cracked and light gets in. A pleasant read it was. #books #life
Hey there #NWC family!!! Who is excited to start this? Who has already started Paper Towns? I haven't started mine yet. But hopefully within the week I will get on it!

I'll be trying to come up with a challenge to do along side of the book with the help of the lovely Elizabeth (@AsYouWish). So keep a look out for that. Also anyone is welcome to still join. #NWC
This book was an alright read. Not as bad as Looking for Alaska, but not as good as The Fault In Our Stars. I enjoyed the ending because it reminded me of my high school boyfriend and how our separation from each other was inevitable all along, even when I couldn't see it. I didn't hate this book, but I didn't love it either. It was middle of the road for me.
Some good moments, but this would have been better as a short story. This is my second book by Green and frankly, I just don‘t get the hype. His brother‘s book was far superior.
Oh well, at least this gave me #Indiana (author from)! #ReadingUSA2019
A tl;dr summary of Paper Towns would be this: two kids living in no-one-gives-a-darnsville get their kicks running around doing dumb stuff, until the mysterious unattainable girl runs away and the boy next door (who “loves” her) chases her across the country. Paper Towns is great for teenagers, but will probably grate the nerves of anyone who has already finished high-school. Full review: http://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/paper-towns-john-green/
Found a quiet little place to read during lunch and it‘s right by the local bookstore so I can run in and see if anything catches my eye for that never ending TBR pile 😏. This book is fascinating to me! It‘s all based in Orlando, which is where I live and have lived my entire life. It‘s interesting to see your entire community in a single book. The kids in the book even go to my high school! && I love John Green 💛
So, I‘m guessing I should not have read Paper Towns right after Looking for Alaska. I could not help but find many similarities between the two. If I disregard those similarities, I must say I enjoyed this book. I really liked the characters, probably more than their journey. The characters are intelligent and witty and have great banter with one another. Their journey is a bit far fetched for high school seniors, even extremely intelligent ones.

I have come to terms with the fact that John Green and I do not work. I read two of his novels, tagged book and Looking for Alaska. Both books clearly indicate I am not his target market.
1. Just got the tagged book from the library. I‘m a little behind!
2. I signed up yesterday! @wanderinglynn Hopefully I did it right and it went through 😬
3. Cross-fit, walking and hiking. I want to get back into running though.
4. I have too many pets to choose from. There are also two other dogs, not pictured here. 🐶

I found the uniquely printed versions of John Green‘s books by Penguin at Eagle Bay Book Co., stop 2 on my mini #SEABookstoreDay.
Some days you just need to read a John Green with a bright yellow cover. Today is one of those days ☀️ 🚎
Just finished this one and, honestly? It was a lot better than I thought it was going to be. I'm usually not a fan of John Green, but this one was pretty good. Maybe I'll give the rest of his stuff another shot - would like to see some more diversity in his work, though.
