Book 21&22/50: Paper Towns and Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green

The problem with reading two books by the same author back to back is everything gets mucked up in your mind. Characters and story lines blend together. Just like my reading experience, I thought I'd write one post for both books. First up, Paper Towns.

From Goodreads: 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.

What I thought: This was a good book, a good story that kept moving and kept me guessing, but it wasn't The Fault in Our Stars.

Next up: Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan.

From GoodreadsOne cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, two teens—both named Will Grayson—are about to cross paths. As their worlds collide and intertwine, the Will Graysons find their lives going in new and unexpected directions, building toward romantic turns-of-heart and the epic production of history’s most fabulous high school musical.

What I thought: The description from Goodreads doesn't tell you much about this book. It was a neat story told from the perspective of two boys both named Will Grayson. Their stories blend and the result is funny and interesting. The entire story comes together so well and my only problem was that I kept getting confused by just having finished another John Green novel. He has a way of writing that makes his books his own, but it's confusing when reading his books back to back. No matter, this was a good book but not one of my favourites.

Up next: Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness by Susannah Cahalan
