A review of Paper Towns (by John Green)

This book is one of John Green’s best books, it was very enthralling and funny, and I laughed out loud about a dozen times. The mystery in Paper Towns is clever, and will leave readers scratching their heads as Quentin and his friends struggle to piece together the clues with some frustration and tons of humor. 281 more words

A review of To Kill a Mocking bird (by Harper Lee)

This novel is an amazing piece of literature. It’s the kind of novel that demands the attention of the reader, and doesn’t let go. It’s powerful, but a very grim look at how people were back then. 303 more words

A review of An Abundance of Katherines (by John Green)

This novel was one of the best books I’ve ever read. It’s laugh-out-loud funny, heart warming, and very entertaining. John Green is the best writer I’ve come across that creates his characters so unique. 277 more words
