Paper Towns Review

I had an amazing and crazy weekend. It was like a rollercoaster and not in a good way. Having an awesome day so far today though. =D The new Doctor Who was epic genius. Made of win. The only bad part is now I have to wait until Christmas for a new one. Also, USA lost to Ghana and is out of the World Cup. I missed the game, but I heard all about it. =(

This isn't so much a review as it is fangirling over Paper Towns and John Green.

Paper Towns by John Green
Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Speigelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs into his life -- dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge -- he follows. After their all-nighter ends, and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues -- and they're for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees the girl he thought he knew.

Best. Book. Ever. It's definitely on my top ten list of favorite books. This book is seriously amazing. I think these might've been the best teen characters I've ever read. I'm not even exaggerating on that. The dialogue was so amazing I couldn't believe it's not real. When I closed it and went to bed, I couldn't stop thinking about it. I still can't stop thinking about it. It's really stuck with me. I cried after I read the end and I'm not even really sure why.

This was one of those books where I didn't really feel the back summary fit the book. But unlike the other two books on that short list, I felt this one was far better than the summary.

10/10 There are no words to describe it's awesome-ness.

Gosh, so many people have loved this book. I liked much of the concept and the dialogue was great, but it was so similar to Looking For Alaska in terms of characterization that I found it hard to get into.

Have not read this yet but I am planning to...Soon!
