Starting tomorrow, blogs from all around the country (literally) and probably the world (at least Canada) will be celebrating John Green Week and we decided to take part in it too! It starts tomorrow, the 3rd, and lasts until the 10th, being the much anticipated release day of The Fault in Our Stars and the (fan-made) holiday Alaska Young Day. A day that means a lot to John.
Throughout the week, we will have a giveaway, some reviews, possibly a video, and posts talking about the man himself, John Green, and we will end the week with a TFiOS Release Day Celebration (whatever that means). If you haven't yet heard of John Green, shame on you! After this week, you have no excuses. Read his books. He has defined contemporary YA in a way that no other contemporary YA author has to date.
If you'd like to participate in this week of celebration for John Green, I would say GO FOR IT! You don't have to post award-winning material. Just share how John Green's books have had an affect on your life. Talk about a favorite Vlogbrothers moment. Pretty much anything goes this week as long as JG is tied to it.
You could also join if:
- You've never read a John Green book before and want to (I recommend you do).
- Re-reading John Green books.
- Reviewing John Green Books.
- Talking about John Green however you want.
- Discussion posts about John Green.
