What To Read After You Finish Turtles All The Way Down by John Green


Books To Read After Turtles All The Way Down


If there is one author all my non-YA reading friends love, it’s John Green! Even my older sister who reads zerooooo YA has read and loved all of John Green’s novels. I’ve had co-workers not know any other YA books but John Green’s! Which is great…I LOVE John Green’s books…and he’s a great gateway into other YA books.

So, since Turtles All The Way Down has come out, I have gotten numerous texts or Facebook messages from random friends like “WHAT DO I READ NOW THAT I’VE FINISHED JOHN GREEN’S LATEST??”  This is like my favorite question because I was born ready to recommend books to people! Plus it’s always nice to know, even after you haven’t seen someone in 5 years, they still see you as a go-to book recommendation machine.

So, if you are like my friends and have just finished Turtles All The Way Down and are wondering what to read next because you’ve already read all his other books and WHO EVEN KNOWS WHEN HE WILL HAVE ANOTHER BOOK OUT…I gotchu.

Here are some of my recommendations for books I think fans of John Green will just eat up based on Turtles All The Way Down and also his previous works:

About Jamie

Jamie is a 32 year old married lady (with a new baby!!) who is in denial that she's actually that old to be a married lady and a mom. When she's not reading you can find her doing Pilates followed by eating ice cream, belting out Hamilton (loud and offkey) and having adventures with her husband, daughter and rescue dog.


  1. I am a JG fan, and I indeed loved many of these books. David Arnold has definitely become a fave, and I am waited with bated breath for his next release. I would put Zentner in the same category as Arnold for me. His two books were both spectacular. Adored The Beginning of Everything, Our Chemical Hearts (and Semi-Definitive too), When We Collided (Lord is great!), OCD Love Story (this book needs more love), and North of Happy. Fabulous list!

    • YES SAME. I loved David & Jeff’s books sooo much! Definitely have become auto-buy authors for me! YAS Emery is one of my all time faves. I know some people didn’t like this one as much as her others but I really loved it! And I think Corey’s books need alllll the love! Super underrated!!

  2. This is a great list! Almost all of these books are on my TBR, although I feel like I’ll be an emotional mess after reading any of them! I’m horrible at book recs, but Melina Marchetta is one of my fave authors and I think her contemporary books are great for John Green fans.

  3. I love John Green and I loved Turtles All the Way Down. Probably my favourite of the year? I literally had a book hangover after finishing that book and I was not ready to pick up any other.
    And I wish I have gotten this list last month? Well, it’s a great list and I am definitely adding a few in my TBR, though a few are already on my mountain-size TBR 😀

  4. I have the audiobook for Mosquitoland! I was rummaging through the back aisles of my library and found it.
    I love John Green books! Looking for Alaska is one of my most favorite reads ever.
