Before I start today's post- I must say a huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my dad! I hope you have a wonderful day dad!!!! =)
Back when I read The Fault In Our Stars and ugly cried more then I've ever ugly cried before, I decided that I wanted to read every book that John Green has to offer. Finally, a few weeks ago in Target I saw Paper Towns on super sale and decided to pick it up!
Although I wouldn't say that Paper Towns in comparable to the epicness (is that a word? well if it's not, it is now!) of The Fault In Our Stars, it was still wonderfully written and had me hooked from the first sentence. John Green certainly knows how to tell a story! This particular one started with Quentin Jacobsen and his neighbor Margo Roth Spiegelman who at a young age discovered a dead man together in their neighborhood. Quentin wanted to forget it, but Margo was interested in investigating the situation. Flash forward to their high school years and Quentin and Margo are not exactly what you would call close friends. However, one school night Margo enters Quentin's bedroom through his window and they go on the greatest adventure he's ever had taking revenge on their classmates. Quentin's obsession with Margo only grows when he discovers she has gone missing...and left clues for him to follow.
I was hooked trying to figure out where Margo could have gone and I loved reading about how Quentin carried a torch for Margo throughout his entire childhood. This was an easy read that I finished in one night and would definitely recommend. Although, if you haven't read The Fault in Our Stars- you should make that your first priority.
Right now I've moved on to An Abundance of Katherines...which you will be hearing about soon!
What books have you read lately?
