Happy Birthday John Green!

          I remember the time when I had no idea who this author was. I remember that after reading one novel by him, I'd ended up reading all the rest in a short time. I remember the time when I didn't know how to cry over the deaths of fictional characters. I remember the time when my only worry was to get a happy ending. I remember the time when I hadn't read the master of Young Adult literature. But my life after having read all his novels is so much better. I feel like he puts the harsh reality, the ugly truth and unspoken acts in his novels giving them an edge. Now that I've read all his books, I can say that he is my favourite author and I'm a proud nerdfighter.

          Last year I had celebrated his birthday by watching his vlogbrother videos for hours. It was knowledgeable, fun and hilarious. This year, I read some of the quotes from his novels and here I am writing about him. You can take up any quote and ponder over it for a while. It's so genious and thought provoking. His novels portray this light which just adds to my knowledge every time I re-read them. And obviously, I cannot wait for his next novel.

          'Looking for Alaska' got me thinking about people and their real side. I thought about the labyrinth of suffering as if it was some scientific theory. 'The Fault in our Stars' gave me too much to think about. I wondered about tragedy, cancer and love. 'Paper Towns' brought back my wanderlust soul. It taught me the importance of friends. 'Let it Snow' was just a wonderful love story trio which I enjoyed reading. 'Will Grayson, Will Grayson' had quite an eccentric story. 'An Abundance of Katherines' made me wonder about the beautiful mess of individuals. There's not just one thing you can learn; there are hundreds. And via this beautiful journey of John Green's fiction, you'll fall in love with him.

          With all his exceptional quirks and an outstanding sense of humour, he is just the best writer in my generation. I love how lovely he is towards his wife. I love how sweet he is towards his children. I love how great he is towards his brother. I love how awesome he is towards his Hollywood friends. I love how committed he is towards his readers. I love everything about this incredible author.

Happy birthday John Green!!!


  1. Happy birthday John Green! I've only read Let It Snow and The Fault in Our Stars, but I loved both of them. :)

  2. Happy Birthday to John Green! The Fault in Our Stars was such a game changer for me; it gave me a written truth about things I have experienced in my own life that I could finally tell others to read about and have them understand!

  3. I really need to read some John Green novels! I haven't had the chance to yet, but they all seem amazing. Thankfully, I have NOT seen the movies based off his books yet, either, so I'm not spoiled! - Dorrie @ Rt 1 US 1

  5. I've never read anything by him (my favorite living author is Lemony Snicket)--it's good to know who your favorites are!
