Okay, in all honesty, there are MANY reasons as to why I love John Green, so… let’s go!
- John Green
The first time I heard of John Green was back in 2010. My friend was walking home with this guy I’ve never seen before and I stopped to say hi to her. He was holding a book, and I asked what it was. Lo and behold, it was Looking for Alaska. Three weeks later, I borrowed it from him. Needless to say, I loved it.John Green weaves a number of amazing stories and his books talk about things I’ve never thought of, or even heard of. I was captivated by the before and after in Looking for Alaska, I found Quentin’s adventure though paper towns in Paper Towns riveting and different (in the best way), I hated all the math in An Abundance of Katherines but adored the book regardless, and I fell in love with The Fault in our Stars. John Green’s books are addicting, fun, and real. He brings emotions, humour, and amazing concepts and characters to the table and his books continuously blow me away~
What I also love about John Green is his constant support for his fans and his unbreakable connection to them. Through YouTube, Twitter, Project for Awesome, IndieGoGo, Tumblr, and a number of other sites, John connects with his fans, his readers, his brother, the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, numerous charities, etc. He and his brother have helped their fans create and begin new ventures and projects, such as the Lizzie Bennet Diaries.
John Green is an inspiration to many, and I feel like, through YouTube, Twitter, and all of his and his brother’s projects, he’s REAL. He’s HUMAN. And he’s AWESOME.
