Not what I expected!!
Turtles All the Way Down - John Green

This book was fun and I was intrigued at the very beginning. It was very consistent and hard to put down! It was an easy and fast read.

Saved by the Shell! (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) - Golden Books
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

Entertaining book for Ninja Turtle fans. This book basically goes through a brief backstory and how they met April. 

The illustrations are entertaining with a few fights scenes (and an epic explosion!). 

The story is pretty simple, but entertaining. 

I picked this book up from the library to look at with a kid I work with. He liked the pictures of the Ninja Turtles, especially when they were fighting.

Overall, a good read.

Couldn't really help myself. It is the annual book fair and found so many books that I have missed. 

 

The 8 books read this month is not going to make that much of a dent. 

 

Two 5 stars read in July

Enjoyable read. 

 

Doing some volunteer work on weekend and lessen the time available for reading. Want to start reading non-fiction books but got tired and escape to fictional book world instead.

A teen romance... sort of
Turtles All the Way Down - John Green

A girl Aza who has spiral thinking and germaphobic want to get out of her head. She has a best friend who write fan fiction of Star Wars Wookiee Chewbacca.

 

The story starts with a rich man was on the run from the police. The police has a ten thousands dollars reward for clue to find him.

 

Aza knew he man's son Davis. So they pretend to be just happened to be in the area and trying to clue to find the man and get the reward at first. Of course, that's not what they got. Aza starts dating Davis. 

 

The story is kind of sweet as it is into poetry and fan fictions and girl being depressed and couldn't help herself or get away from her though.

 

That's the good part. Even though it is a lot of grey it is still a good read. All John Green's fans would not be disappointed.

A Review of Turtles All the Way Down by John Green
Turtles All the Way Down - John Green

I found this book very hard to rate. Even now, I can’t fully decide if I liked it or if I didn’t. Now, don’t get me wrong… this wasn’t a bad book at all. Green’s style of writing for this novel is beautiful. I can’t tell you if that’s how he writes all of his novel’s, because this was my first. Nonetheless, it was beautiful and I thoroughly enjoyed it. There were certain paragraphs that I kept re-reading because they were filled with meaningful quotes that I loved. Though I didn’t care much for Aza, Green did an amazing job portraying her mental illness. I’m positive that many people out there were able to relate and connect with her on a deeper level. I, however, wasn’t able to make that connection with her. I guess it was because that’s all she was to me, just a girl with a mental illness. I didn’t get to know anything else about her to really draw me to her.  

In conclusion, no, this was not the book for me. Will I read another of John Green’s novels? Most likely, as I didn’t HATE this one. Would I recommend this book to other’s? I would. After all, no two persons ever read the same book.
