IMM (1): John Green Week

in my mailbox
In My Mailbox (IMM) is a weekly meme created by Kristi over at The Story Siren. IMM is a chance for a blogger to show which books/e-books have been recently acquired either as ARCs, purchased, or borrowed. Click here to find out more.

john_greenYes, John Green is in my mail. I decided what better way to kick off my blog than to have a John Green week! I feel ashamed to admit that I have yet to read any John Green book despite many recommendations. As a fan of the Vlog Brothers, it is a necessity that I read these books! I thoroughly enjoy John Green’s (and Hank’s) humor and sarcasm. So this week begins my travel into the world of John Green. I will begin by reading  Looking for Alaska (own), as it was the first to be published.  Then, I will continue with An Abundance of Katherines (own), followed by Paper Towns (borrowed from library), and finally I will end with Will Grayson, Will Grayson (own). I am super excited!

What is in your mailbox this week?

P.S. I have succeeded in saying “John Green” seven times in this post.

  1. Hey, welcome to blogging! ^_^
    I read An Abundance of Katherines and it was quite alright. I heard that Looking for Alaska is the best one, so I have that and Paper Towns on my reading list, too

  2. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE John Green! I'm so following you! :) Hopefully, you will love him too! I'm actually reading Paper Towns right now! :)
    And if you like Will Grayson, Will Grayson I would read Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. It is amazingly funny! :) I love it! I did a review of it, if you wanna check it out. :)
    Since I'm your newest follower, maybe you could stop by my blog and follow me back? I would really appreciate it!
    Thank you!
    Here's my IMM!

  8. Hey Lindsey, thanks for commenting on my IMM! And welcome to the blogging world! Also, I am so excited that you're reading John Green this week. I love him. I even have a John Green bobble head, haha.

    I'm not going to spoil anything for you (spoilers are pretty much my biggest pet peeve ever), but there is a paragraph from Looking for Alaska that I'm absolutely in love with. When you read a paragraph that ends in a comment about drizzles and hurricanes, that's the one. :) His writing is so beautiful.

    I hope you enjoy! Take care.
