Hey there! I'm Clara and for my second article I've decided to review the books by John Green, one of my favourite auhtors.
His books are funny and really well-written, even if sometimes they are depressing.

1. The Fault in our Stars
This is the first book by John Green I have ever read and while reding this I have fallen in love with him.
The novel is narrated by Hazel Grace Lancaster, a 16-year-old girl with cancer. She is forced by her parents to attend a support group and here he meets and falls in love with Augustus Waters, an one year older boy amputee. They spend lots of time together and they want to live a life together not determinated by their illness. But as they learn, love sometimes goes along with pain and pain demands to be felt.
I really liked this book because John Green is very good at writing. The feelings of both characters are explained perfectly and personally, it made me think about all these unfortunate people and how lucky I am.
In 2014, came out the film adaption starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort.

You don't get to choose if you get hurt in this world... but you do have some say in who hurts you.

2. Paper Towns
As much as I like this author, this book hasn't pleased me so much but it's proably me because they have made a film adaption starring Cara Delevingne and Nat Wolff in 2015.
So, the book is about Quentin 'Q' Jacobsen and his search for Margo Roth Spiegelman, who is his neighbor and childhood sweetheart.
As I said, I didn't really liked this book and I can't really tell you why. However, I think you could try to read it because if you like love stories and mysteries this is the story for you.

The town was paper, but the memories were not.

3. An Abundance of Katherines
This novel is quite simple and the plot isn't too complex. Colin, a guy who have always dated girls named Katherine, decides to go away from home with his best friend after the 19th Katherine broke up with him.
In his journey, he meets a girl and he falls in love with her, but her name isn't Katherine.
This one isn't my favourite book but it isn't bad. The funny thing is that Colin is a genius with an IQ of over 200 and it seems that, while you are reading, you know nothing and you are a perfect idiot :)

What is the point of being alive if you don't at least try to do something remarkable?

4. Looking for Alaska
I have thought that The Fault in our Stars was the best John Green's book for a long time. But then I read this novel and I absolutely loved it.
The plot is literally amazing. Miles is is going to start college. He's obsessed with the last words of famous people and he goes to seek a Great Perhaps. At Culver Creek college he meets his mate but also Alaska, a beuatiful but emotionally unstable girl.
He lives his days in the college between getting caught up by this young woman and trying to not do stupid and illegalt hings with her and her, and soon his, friends. But one day something happens and Miles can only describe his life counting the days from that day (I know it isn't clear but it's hard for me to explain. Forgive me!).

This novel is wonderful. The concept of a platonic love is written in a admirable way and the characters are described perfectly for their values and flaws.
The only thing I didn't like was that Miles 'Pudge' Halter become soft and I only wanted to shake him and asked him what he was doing with his life. But generally, it was a great book.

People were created to be loved. Things were created to be used. The reason why the world is in chaos, is because things are being loved and people are being used.

6. Will Grayson, Will Grayson
This is probably my second favourite novel. The story is different: the chapters are alternate between the two Will Graysons. One of them is gay and chat with the gay best friend of the other Will. Suddenly, they meet one day in a sexy shop and they will discover lots of things about each other. But the most important is that they are not the only two Will Grayson in the planet.
In my opinion, this book is the funniest. It isn't sad besides the last scene that is a little bit touching if y'all are sensitive as I am.

When things break, it's not the actual breaking that prevents them from getting back together again. It's because a little piece gets lost - the two remaining ends couldn't fit together even if they wanted to. The whole shape has changed.

7. Turtles All the Way Down
This is the last book by John Green I read because it has been released in October 2017.
Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake. So together with her best friend, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis. But while living this life, while trying to be a good daughter, a good friend and a good student, Aza is also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.
The novel is (obviously) a love story between Aza and Davis but it isn't what it seems. In this book, Green describes in an excellent way Aza's mental disease in a world where mental health isn't taken as serious as physical health. As every other John Green's books, Turtles All the Way Down is well-written, easy to follow and full of inspiring quotes.

No one ever says good-bye unless they want to see you again.

Thank you very much for reading my article. Let me know if I should change something or adding anything else.
