♥Glitter in the Air♥   I read this book and loved it after the first page. John Green is such an amazing writer and I can't wait to read the rest of his books. I also loved how funny it was despite the fact that it was about suicide. I was wondering what your favorite book by John Green was because I would love to start reading another one, I just can't quite decide which?

“What the hell is that?" I laughed.
"It's my fox hat."
"Your fox hat?"
"Yeah, Pudge. My fox hat."
"Why are you wearing your fox hat?" I asked.
"Because no one can catch the motherfucking fox.”
― John Green, Looking for Alaska
haha I loved that part XD


Brooke It's very very hard to get into my top ten favourite books but this one made it into my top three.
I just think it's one of the most amazing things I've ever read.
I think I'm going to read An Abundance of Katherine's next. =)


Lisa "Because no one can catch the motherfucking fox" HAHAH greatest line.

It really was a great book, very profound. To me, it didn't jump out as "OH MY GOD THIS IS AMAZING", but once I was finished I found I couldn't stop thinking about it. I guess it was kind of subtly phenomenal?

I havn't read any of his other books yet, but I've heard "Paper Towns" is really good. :)


Lily Paper Towns is an amazing book! It's my favorite of his books. AAOK is good too, but you should read Paper Towns. It is so funny.


Zara I liked Looking For Alaska the most. But I also like Paper Towns a lot. But I find I prefer his writing and quotes to the actual characters and plot.


Aerial yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss! this is my favorite book of all time! i just read it about 3 months ago and i think about it all the time! John Green is the new Mark Twain! haha! i absolutely love him! im trying to get a hold of paper towns right now!


Catriona Hannah Paper Towns is the best, closely following by Looking for Alaska though :) I love John Green's writing, so all of his books are in my top 10! An Abundance of Katherines is pretty great too, but my least favourite of his.

I posted some questions over an Abundance of Katherines through discussions---and maybe some over Paper Towns.
