An Abundance of Katherines

Pinchad para ir a la ficha de Booky

When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton's type is girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact. On a road trip miles from home, this anagram-happy, washed-up child prodigy has ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a bloodthirsty feral hog on his trail, and an overweight Judge Judy - loving best friend riding shotgun - but no Katherines. Colin is on a mission to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which he hopes will predict the future of any relationship, avenge Dumpees everywhere, and finally win him the girl. Love, friendship, and a dead Austro-Hungarian archduke add up to surprising and heart - changing conclusions in this ingeniously layered comic novel about reinventing oneself. This book comes from the "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Fault in Our Stars" and "Looking for Alaska", John Green. John has a huge online presence through his 1.1 million Twitter followers and YouTube channel Vlogbrothers, which has been viewed over 200 million times and has 660,000 subscribers, making it one of the most successful online channels in history.

Let it Snow

The "New York Times" bestseller! Sparkling white snowdrifts, beautiful presents wrapped in ribbons, and multicolored lights glittering in the night through the falling snow. A Christmas Eve snowstorm transforms one small town into a romantic haven, the kind you see only in movies. Well, kinda. After all, a cold and wet hike from a stranded train through the middle of nowhere would not normally end with a delicious kiss from a charming stranger. And no one would think that a trip to the Waffle House through four feet of snow would lead to love with an old friend. Or that the way back to true love begins with a painfully early morning shift at Starbucks. Thanks to three of today's bestselling teen authors--John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle--the magic of the holidays shines on these hilarious and charming interconnected tales of love, romance, and breathtaking kisses.

Looking for Alaska

A vivid, passionate and intensely moving novel from prize-winning author John Green. "In the dark beside me, she smelled of sweat and sunshine and vanilla and on that thin-mooned night I could see little more than her silhouette, but even in the dark, I could see her eyes - fierce emeralds. And not just beautiful, but hot too." BEFORE. Miles Halter's whole life has been one big non-event until he starts at anything-but-boring Culver Creek Boarding School and meets Alaska Young. Gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, screwed up and utterly fascinating she pulls Miles into her world, launches him into a new life, and steals his heart. But when tragedy strikes, and Miles comes face-to-face with death he discovers the value of living and loving unconditionally. AFTER: Nothing will ever be the same. Poignant, funny, heartbreaking and compelling, this novel will stay with you forever.

Yo me compré Looking for Alaska y me decepcionó un poco, demasiadas expectativas, después lo intenté otra vez con Paper Towns y ni lo terminé, me parecía todo tan irreal y tan EL MISMO patrón de personajes...

Yo no he leído a John Green todavía, pero tampoco me corre mucha prisa, puede esperar. Prefiero comprar antes los libros de Levithan.

Yo quiero leer Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns y Will Grayson Will Grayson. Bajo la misma estrella me encantó y es una pena que otros libros suyos no se hayan traducido al castellano. Habrá que leerlos en inglés.

Yo me enamoré de la forma de escribir de este autor en "Bajo la misma estrella" (vale, es un tópico, soy una chica predecible). Tengo muchas ganas de seguir leyendo cosas de él, en mi siguiente pedido seguramente vendrá Looking for Alaska :D
