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:

Whatcha In The Mood For? // The Halloween Edition

book recommendations for what type of book you are looking for


OH MAN…it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts! It’s that time where I dole out recommendations according to what kind of mood you might be in at random — whether that be an actual mood or a specific type of book. Check out past Whatcha In the Mood For recs!


I would LOVE LOVE LOVE if you could also leave some recs for my categories in the comments to further help people looking for books that fit! Also, have a good idea for a category or something you have been looking for? Leave it in the comments!

This time I decided to do a sort of theme around Halloween because it’s HALLOWEEEEEN today! I’m going as an exhausted first time mom….crusty spitup included for realness. BLARGH. Just kidding. We will probably be sitting around doing nothing tonight…maybe grab some candy and continue watching Stranger Things while Riley sleeps. You can check out this Halloween reading list I made last year if you need even more recs!



Want a historical with a supernatural twist?


Iron Cast

Iron Cast by Destiny Soria

Why? It’s set in Boston in 1919 in a world in which hemopaths exist (people whose blood allows them to create illusions through art) and the main characters are two young girls who perform at the Iron Cast club using their talents for a rapt audience even though it’s illegal to host these sorts of gatherings. The supernatural abilities are really cool and unique. There is something within the blood of hemopaths that allows them to create illusions or manipulate the mind. They each have their artistic talent that allows them to do it — singing, playing an instrument, reciting poetry, or painting. Such an amazing read and PERFECT for Halloween/fall if you don’t love scary but totally want something 1) atmospheric and 2) with some supernatural elements! Check out my full review of Iron Cast!
