Paper Towns by John Green

Before I say anything about Paper Towns let me just say, this picture--->
show both of the two covers. If you pre-ordered Paper Towns, or if you but it off Amazon, the cover will be pre-selected for you and you won't get a choice of which one you want. For instance, I pre-ordered mine, and got the blue cover. You may be thinking "hmmm... there are different covers, does that mean the books are different?", well the answer is no, its the same exact book, except with a different book jacket. And before you go run off and buy it, it doesn't officially come out until the sixteenth of October. If you pre-ordered it from Borders or Barnes and Nobles, or some other bookstore that isn't Amazon, you may have gotten it early due to the bookstores not really paying attention to the release date. So, it is my great pleasure to give you the summary of this book (taken from Johns websire

Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life--dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge--he follows.After their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues--and they're for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees of the girl he thought he knew.

I finished this book yesterday, and I still can't put it down. I find myself wishing the books was bigger, just so I can get lost in th magnificent world in which John Green wrote Paper Towns in. Though all three of his books are in a way similar, they are also one of a kind and really addicting, and I don't mean in the Twilight way, I mean in the "holy crap this books is so awesome I can't put it down" way. I have read Johns other books numerous times around, but this one is definitely my favorite. His books just keep getting better and better, I can't wait for the next one!

I also love the two covers, they depict the two miss imagined versions of Margo, and once and if you guys read the book, I hope the covers of the books, and the books themselves have as big of an effect on you, as they did on me. Five cheers for John Green and his wonderfully magnificent books! So I strongly encourage you to go out to your local bookstore on October 16th and but a copy, you won't regret it!

Silence is silver, but Books are golden...


UPDATE: John just became a bestselling author! He ranked #5 on the New York Times Bestsellers, thank to everyone who bought it! I know for a fact that this was one of Johns dreams!
