John Green may be a great author, but he’s got a foul mouth.
Hello, world! Happy Monday to all you lovelies. ❤️
Anyone who has read my blog from the very beginning knows I’m an absolute bookworm. I will read anything and everything I can get my hands on.
Being the satirical, sarcastic little nugget I am, many people have recommended John Green’s books.
His books are funny, mysterious, and sometimes tear jerking. Wanna know something else about his books? They sound like a freaking sailor wrote them.
You kiss your mother with that mouth, John Green?!
Granted, I only got ten pages into Turtles All The Way Down, but that’s honestly all I could handle. In those first ten pages, the ‘F’ word was uttered three times. THREE TIMES.
WHY WAS THIS BOOK CONSIDERED YA FICTION. I KNOW OF 11 YEAR OLDS WHO READ THIS BOOK.
I know I sound like the sheltered homeschooler I probably am, but my parents do their absolute best to shield me from drugs, sex, alcohol, and bad language. They’ve obviously done extremely well considering how shocked I was when I read the first few pages of this book.
I’m sorry if I’m bashing you, Mr. Green, but I… wait… yes I am!
I’m bashing you in a nice way, though. If there is such a thing.
These days I feel like YA fiction is really going downhill. Unless you’re reading a Star Wars novel, then that’s okay.
(Smol Side Note: Star Wars novels are an absolute gift from God. Don’t agree? FIGHT ME INTERNET)
Other than that, YA fiction sucks!
Maybe I should become an author…
HAHAHA NOPE. AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR DAT.
In conclusion, my first impression with John Green was a strange one.
I understand that his books are not for everybody, I just don’t think they should be considered YA fiction.
This concludes my little rant for today! See you all on Friday. 😀
What are some of your favorite YA fiction authors? Have you read any of John Green’s books?
