(TBT) “Paper Towns” by John Green

While going through the notes I took while reading Paper Towns, I realized that only about 5-6 of the notes were positive. I guess I disliked this novel more than I thought. Paper Towns is John Green’s third book. The Fault in Our Stars is his fifth. I haven’t read The Fault in Our Stars but from what I’ve heard, I’m assuming it is much better than Paper Towns.

(TBT) “No Fears, No Excuses” by Larry Smith

Reviewing No Fears, No Excuses is a little difficult for me because it took me months to read it. I’m not saying it’s not an informational, good quality book, but I definitely struggled to get through it. Luckily, no one was on the waiting list for it on the Monroe County Library System website, so I was able to re-download it after it expired multiple times.

(TBT) “A Single Shot” by Matthew F. Jones

First, I need to thank whoever donated this novel to the Mendon Public Library so that I could discover it at the bag sale. I went into A Single Shot prepared for a sub-par story that I was reading just to waste time; but Jones’ story did not waste my time at all. I could not read this novel fast enough.
