In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s JOHN GREEN WEEK! Bloggers all over the blogosphere are celebrating the fabulous YA author that is John Green.

Whether you’ve read his books (Paper Towns, Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Will Grayson, Will Grayson, The Fault in Our Stars) or not, I’d be willing to bet you’ve heard of him. Nerdfighteria, anyone?

John and his brother, Hank, are of the Nerdfighter fame. And also their Vlogbrother channel on YouTube.

Today my post is highlighting quotes from Paper Towns, my favorite John Green novel.

 

 

“It is so hard to leave – until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world.”

“I looked down and thought about how I was made of paper. I was the flimsy-foldable person, not everyone else. And here’s the thing about it. People love the idea of a paper girl. They always have. And the worst thing is that I loved it, too. I cultivated it, you know?”

“She was not a miracle. She was not an adventure. She was not a fine and precious thing. She was a girl.”

“What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is more than a person.”

“‘It’s a penis,’ Margo said, ‘in the same sense that Rhode Island is a state: it may have an illustrious history, but it sure isn’t big.’”

 

Although Paper Towns is my favorite, it just wouldn’t be right if I didn’t include my all-time favorite Looking for Alaska quote:

I honestly cannot say that I’ve come across an author as funny as John Green. If his books don’t win you over (which they should), his personality will. And that’s what this post is about: introducing you to John Green. Or, if you’re already a fan of his work, I’m sharing some of my favorite videos of his.

Enjoy and spread the John Green love!
