The giveaway for Turtles All the Way Down by John Green is closed and we have the our winner! Nirmala from red lips and bibliomaniacs so we will be contacting you privately.
Hopefully in the future we will be able to do more giveaways. For now, the regular reviews and tags will return. Uploading has been a little wonky, we know, but life has been getting in the way a bit. With the usual two times a week again too.
Hello, everyone! We have some very exciting news. Nicole and I will be hosting our first giveaway on our blog. We’ve had this blog for over three years now, and I think it’s about time we did this. We’ll be giving away a brand new copy of John Green’s newest young adult novel: Turtles All the Way Down.
The rules are simple. Just follow us on our blog, and submit your blog’s name onto Rafflecopter. There are also two other chances to enter, which are following our Twitter account, and commenting your favorite book and why you think everyone should read it. So you have plenty of chances to get this book!
This is a U.S. only giveaway! I’m really sorry about that. Someday in the future we’ll do an international one. This giveaway starts on 11/12 at 12:00 am U.S. Eastern time, and ends 11/19 at 12:00 am U.S. Eastern time. We’ll make a separate post announcing the winner.
So, good luck!
This book is three different short stories by three different authors, but all the stories are interconnected. The side characters in one story are main characters in another and so on. All of the writing styles are kind of similar to each other as well, so the whole book flows together nicely.
The Jubilee Express by Maureen Johnson: This was a nice story to start out with. It set the stage for the book as a whole rather well. Jubilee isn’t my favorite character ever, but she isn’t that disliked much either. All the other people in it are great though.
A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle by John Green: This would have to be my least favorite of the stories. Most of the characters annoyed me a lot. The plot annoyed me. The romance annoyed me. I wasn’t into it.
The Patron Saint of Pigs by Lauren Myracle: If I have to choose a favorite, it would have to be this one. Probably just because it is the last one, and gets to wrap everything up neatly and that usually is my favorite part of books. It did talk about miracles and angels too much for my liking, but it made up for it with a pig.
Overall, this book gets four out of five stars. It’s a good Christmas book that I probably won’t ever reread, but would recommend it if someone asked for a nice Christmas book.
