Kick off John Green Week!

It's the first day of John Green Week! Can you believe it? It's already here! The time to celebrate the amazing John Green and all of his amazing books.
   I read my first John Green novel (The Abundance of Katherines) in 2009, and honestly, I didn't really like it that much. It's still not my favorite by far, and because I was so put-off by this book, I didn't read any John Green following up to my reading of this.
   Then, my librarian forced Looking For Alaska into my hands in the beginning of 2010, and I loved it! I loved all of the characters, and I begun looking for more amazing John Green-ness. I found Let It Snow at my local library and was like, "YES! All my favorite authors forced into one book! YES! PARTY!" So I read Let It Snow, and my favorite story was John Green's by far.
He actually does this with his hair. No kidding.
    After this, I went out and bought Paper Towns, which is my favorite John Green book EVER. I love this book more than chocolate (hard to do!) and I force it into any one of my friends who haven't read a John Green book. When my friend Erin from Mint Tea and a Good Book read it, she came to me screaming, "WILLA I LOVE IT! HELP ME COPE!" and I helped her. Then I reread it, and I came to her screaming, "ERIN I LOVE THE SCENE WHERE BEN PEES IN THE BEER BOTTLE SO MUCH!!!!!" and everyone around us looked at me like I was insane. But Erin reread the scene with me and we laughed until we cried, and then read some more scenes and laughed until we cried some more. A review for Paper Towns will be up later this week!
    This past October, I went to Austin Teen Book Festival and bought Will Grayson, Will Grayson (John Green and David Levithan), which I liked. A lot. I didn't love it like I loved Paper Towns or Looking For Alaska, but I still really liked it. Then, I got it signed by David Levithan, and I that made this book even more awesome. I think Tiny has the best name ever and the most hilarious personality!
    Another part of my John Green love is the vlogbrothers videos. I am obsessed with these. My favorite is pasted below for all to watch!
and this one.

I hope you love these videos, and the books of John Green as much as I do!
Happy John Green Week! DFTBA!
