comment some books you think are too hyped up, or ones that you think need more attention.

I finished the series but they were very slow.

I agree with Alex, 'The Fault in our Stars' was way too hyped up!!!

Yeah 'The fault in Our Stars' wasn't as good as I thought it would be. I personally think 'Looking for Alaska' was way better and should have been made into a movie instead.


Alexandra Beatriz (ummduhitsme) | 45 comments I second Ruby!

Annabelle King | 23 comments I loved the fault in our stars!!!!!!! I didn't like looking for Alaska.

Ellie I take it people either didn't like or loved one or the other - Looking for Alaska and The Fault in our Stars.
I haven't read either yet.

looking for Alaska was much, in my eyes, better. the characters were perfectly flawed which made for an interesting read. I loved the mysteries of Alaska and enjoyed reading it more although I did like TFIOS. I think when the movie came out it did become cliché - I would see girls carrying it around everywhere, just to show it off- I think that its a shame that it became like.

Yeah, I would see girls carrying TFIOS around everywhere for half the year just to show it off.

Looking for Alaska was definitely my favourite John Green book, it was much better than TFIOS.

I agree I liked the book before the movie came out. Movie fans annoy me.


Alexandra Beatriz (ummduhitsme) | 45 comments movie fans annoy me, too. -_- Like TFIOS, I've seen a lot of people having "okay? okay" signs everywhere. ugh


Alexandra Beatriz (ummduhitsme) | 45 comments also, I asked them if they've read the book or watched the movie. Almost all of them said no. :|

I really don't get why people could ever use something as beautiful as a book just to look 'cool'. It really just annoys me. Books should never be treated that way because they are far to amazing!


Alexandra Beatriz (ummduhitsme) | 45 comments I agree with you, Lucinda! Books are precious and shouldn't be treated that way.


message 20: by [deleted user] (new)

agreed

My thoughts exactly! Its like when people have really good books on their shelves to make it seem like they've read them, and you try to start a conversation but you can't because they haven't picked it up yet.

Or people with bookish symbols (Deathly Hallows, the Okay, Okay, the Angelic Rune etc) without knowing where they actually come from.

Abi (booksa144) I totally agree with you!


message 23: by Rabecka (new)

Rabecka (mrtickles) I think that all the John Green books are too hyped up. I only read TFIOS because I needed to know what my friends were talking about. I tried An Abundance of Katherins and hated it. I am now reading Paper Towns but only because the movie is coming out and I want to see the movie.


message 24: by Phoenix2 (new)

Phoenix2 People think that John Green is the new Nickolas Sparks or something. But I agree that the books aren't that good. For over rated books I must say that the Beautiful creatures series were not as good as their ratings suggest. Maybe the first book was good, but the rest were too tiring to keep up with wherever Lena will turn bad or not.

Yeah I agree with you on Beautiful Creatures, it definitely didn't live up to its ratings and I also found that it dragged on and on.


message 26: by [deleted user] (new)

I did not love those either
