Fault in Our Stars by John Green and Giveaway

Unless you’ve just arrived on this planet you know that John Green is my BF.  I love his writing and his personality and with each book I grow more and more obsessed enamored of him.

PammyPam loves John Green

What’s so great about John Green is that he has his own YouTube Channel and each of his books has either won a prize or been nominated for top literature prizes.

And ALL of his books have been optioned for movies by Hollywood. YAY!

I took a minute from my super very busy and important schedule to read The Fault in Our Stars.  I had the pleasure of drooling on meeting him and receiving a copy in June at BEA and couldn’t wait to dive into it.

I was not disappointed. I will NOT spoil it for you and this is one book where I did not read the ending first (not that it would have helped).  If you love sappy sick-kids-dying-so-lets-say-mushy-stuff type books, move along.  There is none of that here.  What you’ll find is funny, insightful, and some of the best YA literature available.  It’s no wonder he’s winning awards all over the place! I’ve already given him the award as BF, what more could he want?

He could want, you, my friend, to read this book.  And I’m going to help you.  I have an extra copy to share (YAY!!) and I’m giving it away just in time for Christmas!! Happy Dance!!

Easy peasey lemon squeezy entries: leave your comment and tell me either a) your best John Green quote or book and b) if you’ve not read John Green (whut??) who your fave author is.  Winners will be chose by Random.org.

Contest begins December 9th at midnight and ends December 17th at midnight (that’s Sunday to Sunday). Sorry to my international sisters and brothers but US only this time: I need to be able to get this to you superquickfast!

GOOD LUCK! I hope you win!!

Haven’t read this one yet! I loved looking for Alaska…I am a total YA nerd, too. Love your suggestions!

I haven’t read anything by John yet. I know, strike me down now…
My favorite author ever is John Steinbeck. At least they share a first name. Kismet enough for me to win? Hope so. Happy holidays and thanks for the chance.

Whoa, I have no idea how that link got there! Sorry!

I’ve never read Mr. Green but I saw a clip on youtube that was amazing with two young actors, so I’d love to read the whole book.

My favorite quote is prooobably “I’m not saying that everything is survivable. Just that everything except the last thing is.”
― John Green, Paper Towns

I’m a John Green fan even though I have never read anything of his. This one has been on my TBR list for a while now. As for a favorite author, I would have to say Janette Rallison.

I have several favorite quotes! Sorry, it was that great!

For obvious bookish reasons:
“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”

Humor:
“What a slut time is. She screws everybody.”

Romance:
“I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”

I have never read a John Green book. GASP. I know. I need to remedy this!! It’s hard for me to pick just one favorite author, but Jodi Picoult, Stephen King, and Jon Krakauer are high on my list.

I have yet to read a book by John Green yet…I KNOW :O
I’ve heard so much about him and can’t wait until my finals are over to dive into all of his novels. I don’t really have a favorite author, but I do love Sarah Dessen. I just love all of her stories, they all have concepts that we can relate to and when I was in high school I read her books religiously 🙂

Thanks for this awesome giveaway!! 😀

I haven’t yet read a book by John Green but I hear they are amazing. One of my favorite authors is Diana Wynne Jones and I also love a book called Brave Story by Miyuki Miyabe. And Michael Ende’s Never Ending Story (the novel that the 80’s movie was adapted from).

I am obsessed with John Green. I already own and have read The Fault in Our Stars but I would love another copy. My favorite book is still Looking for Alaska.
“Thomas Edison’s last words were ‘It’s very beautiful over there’. I don’t know where there is, but I believe it’s somewhere, and I hope it’s beautiful.”
