Paper Towns by John Green is one of my favourite books of all time. It's my favourite John Green book, if that helps (even though I loved Looking for Alaska and The Fault In Our Stars a lot too). I loved it so much that I devoured it in one sitting. I read it during winter, in front of our fireplace and a steaming cup of tea next to me. Perfect reading conditions. 

Paper Towns is such an engaging read but light, yet still gives you things to think about. The story keeps you on the edge enough to continue reading chapter after chapter without stopping. I loved the characters and the story and the setting - everything about it is near perfect for me. Even the ending in a way. Not going to lie, I was a little disappointed but I understood why it ended the way that it did. That was actually one of the reasons why I loved the book so much, actually. You hope for that perfect fairytale ending, and John Green manages to bring you, yet again, an honest and real ending that's disheartening yet satisfying. 

This is a book that I will read over and over again so there's no doubt that I highly recommend it. Also, forgive me for not writing a synopsis - trying to summarize the book would trivialize it too much.
