it was amazing

anybody can look at you. its quite rare to find someone who sees the same world you see.

oh my gosh. oh my gosh. oh my gosh. i now forgive john green for making me wait 5 years for a new book because this was perfection. honestly, my new favourite of his. i know john green stories tend to be a hit or miss with people, but there is no denying he can write. i loved all the intricacies, and poetic sentences, and overall warm feeling of this book.

i also really appreciate the personal side of this story and could really feel a difference with this book compared to his pervious works. i think greens own struggles with OCD just made the book all the more genuine and honest. and because of this, there couldnt have been a better portrayal of thoughts for a main character who suffers from anxiety and specific triggers.

i thought this was so well done and i loved everything about it!

Mahnoor ⚯͛ Been a little hesitant about picking this one up but it’s definitely moving up on my tbr now. Glad you enjoyed it.💕


Lisa I read this book recently and it is such a great book, I’m still thinking about it all the time. It became my favorite book by John Green as well! I’m glad you loved it 🙂


jessica mahnoor - i think if you have enjoyed john greens other books then you will like this, as well (i guess the opposite also applies). but i hope you give it a shot and love it as much as i did! :)

lisa - yay! so happy you liked this! i know john green sometimes doesnt vibe well with people, so im always happy to find others who love his books as much as i do! :)


Beatrice Totally agree with you, this was such an important book in his portrayal of OCD and anxiety!


jessica true! i dont suffer from any sort of anxiety but i was shocked at how much i related with aza. hopefully other readers did, as well!


rachael ♡ so glad you loved it!! this book really impacted me and saw me in a way a lot of books don't. even though i don't have OCD i do struggle with anxiety issues and omg. this was such a beautiful and haunting portrayal of it


jessica i love hearing that! thanks for sharing, rachael! im so happy that you were able to have that connection with this book and enjoyed it, as well!! <3


Kayleigh Kehoe ♡ Really glad you enjoyed it! I liked the book but I felt like it wasn't on par with John Green's previous work. 😔 Although his narrative was as beautiful as ever. ❤️


jessica fair enough!! it felt really different to me than his other books, but im a fan of his regardless. 🙈 so happy you enjoyed this also though!!


lexi herondale i absolutely adore this book, one of my all time favourites.
