Bookish Monday (#16): Paper Towns


Are you a fan of John Greene?

paper townsPaper Towns by John Greene is a young adult contemporary book-to-movie-adaptation that recently was released in theaters last Friday (24 June 2015).

For those who have gone to the movie, they seem to have enjoyed themselves giving the film a 7.1 out of 10 rating. On Goodreads, the book received 4 out of 5 stars, so this seems to be a book and movie you don’t want to miss!

Here is the official Paper Towns blurb:

Who is the real Margo?

Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar.

After their all-nighter ends, and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues—and they’re for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees the girl he thought he knew…

I have not reviewed the book yet, but I have purchased it for a future review!  I am very excited to dive right in, especially with a new movie coming out with great reviews so far.

One aspect of Paper Towns that I am very excited for is the soundtrack that came out this past Tuesday.  From listening to the songs, the song choice is spot on.  Most of the songs are about running away and search parties which seem to fit perfectly to the storyline.  I plan on listening to the cd while reading the book to see if it enhanced the reading experience, so stay tuned for that review!
