Evening book lovers!
Today is the 10th October and also the release date of the heavily anticipated new John Green book – Turtles All The Way Down.
(Is anyone else underwhelmed by the cover? There’s exactly ZERO turtles.)
Unlike what feels like most of the YA community, I won’t be reading this (yet?).
The short answer is that I am on a book-buying ban and so all the books I’m desperately lusting after have been relegated to the christmas list.
The long answer is… I just feel meh.
I read Looking For Alaska years ago; it was one of the first YA books I read. There was hype around this book and it just didn’t do it for me.
I read The Fault in our Stars around publication day and thought it was ok, then reread it in preparation for the film and absolutely loved it.
Yet I still have two John Green books on my TBR (An Abundance of Katherines and Will Grayson, Will Grayson), both of which I have started and struggled to get through. Maybe John Green is just not for me, or maybe I should give his new book a chance (although the premise doesn’t excite me the same way a lot of YA books do?)
Please let me know if you’ll be reading Turtles All The Way Down, and if you have/haven’t read it, let me know why! I’d love to hear all of your opinions 🙂
