    I need to reread Paper Towns! Out of all of the John green books, it was always my favorite. I'm not sure WHY, I just loved it the most, ya know?

    I need to read Paper Towns! Especially before the movie comes out! Have you read We Were Liars?

    I also didn't like The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake. Like you, I could see why others would like it, but it wasn't for me. I really want to read Paper Towns soon! 🙂

    I too read Paper Towns, and don;t hate me when i say this but I don't think it was John Greens best work. Don;t get me wrong, I enjoyed it but I think maybe you liked it a little more.

    I've picked up The Opposite of Loneliness a few times at the bookstore, but never ended up purchasing it. Maybe you've convinced me to. 🙂

    That first book sounds so interesting plot-wise, but other things that you said about it make me think it wouldn't be the book for me too. Maybe I'll get it from the library to give it a shot, just in case.

    Your comment about the essays reminding you of being in college… that's something I miss so much about college! Having people to hand off a short story or a poem to.

    It's so interesting! Someone just recommended lemon cake to me, even though they don't really know my reading preferences. I just read We were liars, and I thought it was alright. Didn't love it. But that's why my coworker recommended it to me. Thank you for the thou rough review!!

    I LOVED Paper Towns (as well as Finding Alaska, did you read that one?) I also adore Rainbow Powell, who wrote Eleanor and Park and Landline. I'm currently into reading all of her novels! And The Rosie Project, so cute!

    I love your book posts so much! I haven't read either of these but I've seen them around quite a bit so it was good to read your take on them!

    My big question with Paper Towns because of when you read it was did you picture Cara Delevingne as Margo the entire time? Was it believable? I love Cara but I'm worried about her portrayal in the movie.

    I am always looking for new books! Especially ones I've never heard of, I'l be adding paper towns to my list! I just finished "Interrupted: When Jesus Wrecks Your Comfortable Christianity" by Jen Hatmaker and it was super good!

    I really want to read Paper Towns! I am thankful to bloggers who still write and promote books. I feel like vocabulary is a lost art among young men and women these days!

    I need to kick my butt into gear and get reading again! I can't remember the last time I finished a book, yet my reading list keeps on growing!
