    1. A bit of a confession, some of which I've never actually told anyone or said out loud before, but which I now share with the internets. In the interest of full disclosure, in high school I wasn't popular at all. If there were a popularity graph plotting popularity that looked lik...

    beatlemania is nothing compared to what i feel for john green right now. this book was the perfect palate-cleanser between all the dark apocalyptic stuff i have been shoving in my face. i have been reading so much dystopian YA that i forgot there were other options. i bought this a...

    I was completely wrong about this book, but up until the last twenty pages I thought I was totally right. Wait, let me explain, okay. It's true, you've read this John Green book before. It does seem sometimes that he's created a couple of archetypal characters and he's spent th...

    I need to start off with my criticism of John Green: 1) Margo and Quentin are exactly the same people as Colin and Katherine and Miles and Alaska. Quentin/Colin/Miles is this very thoughtful, somewhat nerdy young man who is on the cusp of fucking reaching out and grabbing life by the ...

    Unexpected in many ways but still quite a ride! THOSE UNREACHABLE PEDESTALS Nothing ever happens like you imagine it will. This book definitely wasn?t what I expected but then again it surprised me in many ways, and I also made me think, so clearly this wasn?t a jo...

    This sort of read is off the beaten track for me, non-fantasy YA-ish literature. That said, it's amazingly well-written, and I enjoyed it immensely. John Green is an amazing author, and he writes with a delicacy I admire and envy. This book, was sweet and light and heartbreaking...

    I was pretty disappointed in Paper Towns. I am a big fan of John Green but found this book plodding and boring. I hated the Margo character and thought that Q was a big whiner. His obsession with Margo, who he didn't really even know, was really annoying. I realize that this was one of...

    I was disappointed in this book, especially since John Green is an author I've been meaning to read for some time now. He writes Young Adult novels (Looking for Alaska [wherein "Alaska" is a girl's name], An Abundance of Katherines, to name a couple) and is both a popular and critical ...

    This book started out well-enough as a semi-atypical teen coming of age story?semi-atypical because the beginning events (Q and Margo on a night about town) are atypical of teens in general but only semi because it's not really unexpected in books about teens. At any rate, getting to...

    If you liked Looking for Alaska and Abundance of Katherines, you will LOVE this book. I could NOT put it down. It's funny and mysterious and just so real. Definitely recommended. ...

    ?Mirroring? is a concept in psychology where a person can know himself better by soliciting feedbacks from other people who he interacts with either at home or at work. Last weekend, I attended a company-sponsored teambuilding session and the facilitator used this. I got some good ...

    "It's so hard to leave-until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world...Leaving feels too good, once you leave." We all leave eventually. No matter who and what we are, or where we?re from, we will someday and somehow leave our comfort zones or the norm...

    The following is quite a lot of dribble that I felt the need to get off my chest... Hmmm...what to say? I'm kind of perplexed by this book. I know I never want to read the name Margo Roth Spielgelman ever again, that's for sure. The characters (apart from the previously named) were fa...

    Spoilers This was disappointing. I really don't know what the big deal is about John Green. Sure, The Fault in Our Stars was good but it was hardly a masterpiece and all his other books seem average at best. Why does he get so much love? Is it because he's a guy? I've noticed that m...

    "Nothing ever happens like you imagine it will," she says. "But then again, if you don't imagine, nothing ever happens at all." I already said this in a status update but I am so glad I reread Paper Towns. I first read it years ago; back before I'd heard of vlogbrothers, back when ...

    This book truly had me on an emotional roller coaster, and I enjoyed almost every minute of it. The book was broken into 3 parts, and I honestly felt completely different about each of them. Part 1: The first part of this book was brilliant. It was a lovely introduction to the...

    Oh dear lord, I found this book immensely irritating. I've only just finished reading Looking For Alaska (which was an okay book) and thus it was immediately apparent that this book was EXACTLY LIKE LOOKING FOR ALASKA. It had the same geeky male character. The same kooky (aka annoyi...

    DNF 64% Oh, this was just awful. I quite liked the banter between Q and his friends, but I could not stand another word about that damn Margo Roth Spiegelman. Margo Roth Spiegelman is beautiful, Margo Roth Spiegelman is perfect, Margo Roth Spiegelman is sensational, she?s better t...

    Why so many good ratings for this book? It could basically be called Looking for Margo, or Paper Alaska, because it's the same formula, again and again. How many books can he write about an unbelievable teenager secretely loving another unbelievable teenager? Everything was so absurd, ...

    The more I think about this book the more I don't like it. I hated the ending. It made the entire book completely pointless. I do enjoy John Green's writing style, but I'm starting to get the feeling once you've read one of his books you've read them all. ...

    ?Nothing ever happens like you imagine it will.? Well, I have to say, and please don?t hate me, that was a lot better than The Fault in Our Stars! I mean A LOT BETTER! I liked Quentin in this story, and it was noble the way he was so intent on finding Margo, alive, or...

    I can see why there are people out there comparing this with Looking for Alaska. I am not going to linger on the comparisons between those two because 1) I never liked Looking for Alaska, 2) I never even finished Looking for Alaska and 3) I thought this book was original enough not t...

    So this is my second John Green book, and my second accidental first edition of one of his books too: The focus of this novel is a girl named Margo, and the MC?s (Quentin) obsession with her. Ever since they were kids, she?s taken up residence in his thoughts and when they are...

    I'm probably gonna get a lot of WTF responses for saying this book was so overrated. But, it really was. Over. Freaking. Rated. Sorry, not sorry. I don't understand the hype really. Guys are so dumb. Girls are so dumb. I think it tried too hard to be "deep", which just made me cri...

    This book as the others by this author has the John Green theme: 1.Awkward funny charismatic good looking fit main character that somehow is a looser. 2.The hot popular girl who he is forever in love. 3.A weird funny bestfriend who gets in trouble. 4.Prom. 5.Everything happening...

    ?If you don't imagine, nothing ever happens at all.? A Disappointment You know, it started promising. The revenge trip was fun, and so was discovering the first few clues about Margo's disappearance. But that's it. The rest was one long bore. For CHAPTERS Q did nothing but re...
