In My Mailbox (59)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren designed to showcase all the books you got during the week, be it in the mail, from the bookstore, or at the library.

Y'all, I have been so busy with work lately that I have been neglecting my blog.  I've barely posted in since the New Year and I am so far behind on my reviews it's not even funny.

My only books this week were multiple copies of this gem:
I loved this book so much that halfway through it, I went on Amazon and ordered 5 more copies to give to friends and family. This is by far the best book I've ever read.

Most people who've reviewed this book were of the same opinion as me: it was a brilliant work of fiction. But I've read some reviews where people have said that John Green intellectualizes in his books too much and that teens really don't act the way he writes them to be, but I can think of far more Classics taught in classrooms across America that teens would relate to less than this literary masterpiece. John Green is an intellectual guy and the fact that he doesn't pander to pop culture trends and wrote a book full of heart and soul makes me love him even more. If you haven't read this book yet, all I have to say is, what are you waiting for?


  1. Oh. My. Goodness. Hahah! My copy is sitting right next to me, waiting to be read. I can't wait to start it--especially since it's good enough to buy 6 times. ;)

  2. So many copies...that could only mean one thing: I need to READ this book! :)

  3. Ps: Hopefully I can get it in Curacao. :)

  4. Loved this books so much! I have three copies! Hope your friends and family will enjoy it!
    Happy Reading!

  6. Oh wow, that's very cool you're giving them to friends and family. That's what authors live for, I bet, when the same person buys a whole bunch of one book just because they loved it :)

    I hope your family and friends enjoy it!
