J - John Green Books

Share it Please

John Green is an American writer who has released hugely successful books such as The Fault In Our Stars and Paper Towns. And his stories are some of my favourite ones to read; his way of writing keeps the reader constantly captivated throughout his books and his plot twists and turns never fail to create a wave of emotion for the reader.

John Green hasn't written piles and piles of books and I think that's why the ones he has written are so good and are appreciated so much, because although there are year gaps between his releases, his new stories never fail to keep up with the high expectation he's set for himself and are always a really good read. His books include:
  • Looking For Alaska 
  • An Abundance Of Katherines
  • Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances
  • Paper Towns
  • Will Grayson, Will Grayson
  • The Fault In Our Stars
It wasn't really until 2012 when The Fault In Our Stars was released that his books became hugely popular, but I think this is because everyone can relate to the story. Ok, not everyone has a romantic love story like the one told between Hazel and Augustus, but everyone can relate to the loss and hurt the characters go through as they loose someone they love to such a horrible illness. The premise of the story - how Hazel and Augustus meet and fall in love is unlike any other romance story because of the time limit they have to be together and how this obviously has a big impact on their relationship.

Although I haven't actually read all of John Greens books, we have a collection of them all in my household and I'm slowly working my way through the pile. But I hugely recommend reading The Fault In Our Stars, Looking For Alaska and Will Grayson, Will Grayson; all three stories are completely different but all are equally as good. Looking For Alaska does a "Before" and "After" and you constantly wonder what is the before and what is the after until you find out half way through the book; and Will Grayson, Will Grayson shows the two point of views of two different boys with the same names and how different their lives are and you become invested in their different lives and their stories until they finally meet.
