Books my kid is reading

My twelve year old recently read ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ by John Green and couldn’t stop singing it’s praises.
I haven’t managed to pry it away from her to read myself, but from what she says it’s a wonderful story of a teen who is dealing with a diagnosis of terminal cancer.
So for Christmas I bought my kid ‘Paper Towns’ (also by John Green) and she was very pleased and proceeded to stay up late, reading night after night, finishing in the wee small hours of the new year.
I also gave her a gift card for Barnes and Noble, so as soon as breakfast was cleared away today she begged me to take her shopping – and now she has ‘An Abundance of Katherines’ by John Green to look forward to.
She hasn’t started reading her latest acquisition just yet though, because she is determined to make it through ‘The Hobbit’. She started reading Tolkien’s tale of Bilbo Baggins as soon as I handed over my well loved copy, but it’s been tough going, detailed descriptions are bogging her down – I admire her determination to keep trying.

I love that my daughter has found an author that she loves.
Dear John Green, please keep writing great novels.

    I’m glad your daughter found John Green too! I’m 25, but I started reading his books this year and can’t put them down.

        I used to read a lot more contemporary authors but lately YA and History is my main focus. I liked anything by Elizabeth scott or Sarah Dessen like authors. Can’t say much about YA authors but I like Claudia Gray’s books and Veronica Roth’s Divergent is one my fav dystopian series. Pretty much anything that makes me wanna read a book twice. (:
