Currently Reading: Paper Towns

I think I've made it fairly obvious that if John Green writes it, I read it. And I love it. And if you follow me on Twitter, you really know this. Whoops.

This book was a little different for me. I actually finished it yesterday on my lazy Sunday. During most of the book, I liked it, but didn't love it.

But the very last section of the book was awesome. It's such a "finding your place" type of a book once you get into it. Which confused me a little bit because this one is technically listed as a "teen" book. I think that's only because it's based on characters in high school, though. Or I guess it could be looked at as a "coming-of-age" book as well.

It's also one of those quotable books I love...

"What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is more than a person."
"If you don't imagine, nothing ever happens at all."

My basic summary: It's a story about a high school boy who loves a girl from afar, but doesn't ever really know her. Then she runs away and he tries to find her because he wants to find the real her. In the journey, everyone starts to discover more about themselves and less about each other.

As usual, this book made me laugh get a little teary eyed a few times as well. Typical John Green tugging at every emotion possible.

I only have one left: Looking for Alaska. So that will be happening soon.

But if you are looking for a good book and don't know where to start- just pick up any John Green book and I promise you'll be satisfied.

Have you read any John Green books?? What's your favorite?
