The Fault in Our Stars vs. Turtles All the Way Down | Book Battles

 

Welcome to Book Battles, a feature here at Crazy for YA where I put two books in the battle ring and have them fight it out to see which one is better. See all of my previous bloody, literary battles.


Today's fight is a vicious fight, two masterpieces from the same creator, a cult classic vs. the new book on the scene, The Fault in Our Stars vs. Turtles All the Way Down by John Green.

 

 

In addition to both being written by the same author, TFIOS and TATWD are extremely similar. They both deal with tragedy, death, and philosophical teenagers. Both novels have a female main character who has to deal with these unfavorable circumstances aided by a love interest. Parents play a large role in both stories, unlike his other novels.


Today, I am going to investigate which of John Green's stories is superior.

 

 

Click the link to see which book won and the reasons for my judgement!

 

Plus I would love to hear what you think about both of these books! Which one do you think is better?

Review:

"Polarity in Motion" by Brenda Vicars

My Thoughts....

I found this novel a good thought provoking and touching read for any young adult and parent. What will happen as fifteen year old Polarity is put in a unfortunate situation? I liked how this author was able to 'address many level of bullying, social media, mental illness, racial discrimination, drugs and relationships' that so many youngsters can relate to. Even with all of this it is so hard to believe people can be so cruel. So, in the end how will this story end about a nude photo that goes viral? A bag of drugs and more? OK, to find out who put the photo out there and more you will have to pick up 'Polarity in Motion' to find out. How will Polarity 'save herself by saving someone else?'

I really enjoyed 'the love in the message about inequity that involved 'Polarity's road to self discovery.' The author did a great job giving the readers some amazing characters that were presented and handled the different issues so very well in this young adult novel. "Polarity in Motion" was definitely a compelling story to read and definitely learn from it.

Thank you to the author for a good read.

"Fury Of Fire" by Coreene Callahan

My Thoughts....

Did I enjoy this fantasy romance read? Yes, I enjoyed these supernational creatures...these dragons [shifters] and yes it was about the good dragons vs. the bad dragons. The story kept my attention featuring Bastion [dragon] and Myst [Bellmia-nurse] who had quite a love story. I enjoyed how they met and that feeling that was there from the start. Let me also mention the hot steamy sex that went on between these two[Bastion & Myst"] was simply off the chart well written.

I loved how this author brings out the energy at Myst yielded with her Meridian energy that flowed between her and Bastion throughout the story which was of great importance to these dragons [Shifters]. This was of great importance to the read in that "the dragons gain power and curb their hunger from energy produced from females that are with." "With the dragons who were facing extinction fewer dragons were being born and only conceived with a human female that has dragon DNA and are the males dragon mate and the horrible thing of it all the human females were not able to survive childbirth."

Now, to understand it all you will have to pick up this author's 'Fury Of Fire' to get the full story that will definitely keep your attention especially if you like dragons reads as you will be turning the pages to see what is coming next...and yes believe me a lots will be coming!

Be ready for some bad dragons fights, kidnapped, revenge, caves, battles, sexy alpha males and romance giving the readers quite a bit of fast paced action with some outstanding descriptions as the story flowed so very well. The characters are simply well developed, portrayed and believable as you are really in for a good read with the Nightfuries [Bastion] and the Razorbacks [Ivar] dragons [Shifters] going after each other. Why and who will come out of this? Will the humans [Mac and Angela] the good cops be able to able to make sense of it all with death happening all around them? By the end of the read one will definitely get a good take on the 'Dragonkind or what is called the Dragon Shifters' and only leaving the reader wanting more.

My Thoughts....

Again this author knows how to give the readers one heck of a good hot erotic romantic read and yes with partners! So if this isn't your kind of read...beware. We find from the read that Meghan Keenan is visiting with her friend Jack Hawthorne [professional poker player] who lived in Vegas. While Meghan has plans of having some fun by setting up her masseuse Tia Minh as a threesome, however she finds out that their is a boyfriend Tony Sanders. Now there will be a challenge for Meghan in getting everyone together. But was this to be as It seems like Tia has taken a liking to Jack. How will all of this work out for Jack, Tia, Tony and even Meghan? Who will out play who as it seems like Tia has other plans? In the end who will end up with who? I know there are a lots of questions that need to be answered and I will stop here and say to get all of these questions answered and more you will have to pick up "Vegas Gambler" to find out in this delightful 'playhouse' read.
