Lou-Ann - Great review! My favorite character is Ben, he makes the book a little less serious.

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - It’s only fairly recently that I’ve become a big John Green fan girl. I have yet to read Paper Towns, but after your glowing review, I think I need to get on that!

Estelle - J, I think this might be the perfect read for you then. haha. I don’t think I cried at this one. Maybe a bit at the end? But I wasn’t sobbing so that’s a good sign! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts & the cry meter of course. 😉

Estelle - S, this was a lovely comment to see when I first woke up. Thank you so much. I still can’t get over how much I loved loved this book & I hope I can find another John Green that is just as wonderful!

Sasha - “Green did a fantastic job of making these last moments of senior year so believable. It’s sad, it’s happy, it’s fun, it’s a disaster, it’s scary, and in the end, all you are left with is the unknown.” GIRL, you got a way with words!

I love JG. Papertowns is such a fun read! I did it as an audiobook and loved Q. 🙂

Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl - Hello, John-Green-Book-that-Does-Not-Scare-Me! Estelle, Estelle. I think I’ve been talked into this one. You know how much I hate crying. HATE it. To me, John Green = a need to buy stock in Puffs Kleenex. I think I can do this one, though! I think I will… *off to Amazon*

Estelle - Hollie, thanks for the comment! Glad I’m not the only one who was LOLing along with these characters. I just bought Looking for Alaska last week & I’m reading An Abundance of Katharines from the library at the moment. I’ll keep you posted with how it is going!

Estelle - Mands, you make me laugh a lot. 🙂 Glad I convinced you to read PT. It’s just THAT good. I also bought if for a friend. So that means it must be pretty good, right? haha

VeganYANerds - Estelle – you had me at laughing out loud! I always a appreciate a book that can make me laugh and now I just have to read this!

I’m ashamed to say I still haven’t read any of John’s own books, only WG, WG but I do have TFiOS and now I will go out and buy Paper Towns!

Hollie - I’m so glad you enjoyed Paper Towns! I don’t normally laugh out-loud at books, yet with Paper Towns I found myself sat in an airport departure lounge, bully-chuckling with laughter and gaining quite a few strange looks too!

I really hope you enjoy John Green’s other books just as much! (If not more!)
