Waiting on Wednesday #59: Turtles All the Way Down by John Green

Hello everyone! "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, that is hosted by Breaking the Spine and the purpose of this event is that we spotlight upcoming releases of books that we are excited for!  This will also tie into Wishful Ending's Can't Wait Wednesday post!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Title:  Turtles All the Way Down
Author:  John Green
Expected Publication Date:  October 10th, 2017

Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis.

Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts. 

In his long-awaited return, John Green, the acclaimed, award-winning author of Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars, shares Aza’s story with shattering, unflinching clarity in this brilliant novel of love, resilience, and the power of lifelong friendship.

I've read John Green's other book "The Fault in Our Stars" and I loved it so much!  So, I'm definitely excited to check this book out!

So, what upcoming books are you looking forward to?  Please respond below!


  1. the hype for this book is crazy and i totally understand it. i hope it lives up to it. i shamefully haven't read any John Green books though.

  2. I've never read anything from John Green -I don't think he would be my cup of tea. But I hope you enjoy "Turtles All the Way Down". I have seen people saying great things about it.

  4. I'm not a huge fan of John Green (hiding head because I know this isn't a popular opinion). I know lots of people are looking forward to this one though!

  5. I've read four of Green's books, and the only one I've really enjoyed was The Fault in Our Stars. I don't know yet if I'm going to read this, but I am intrigued! I hope you love this Ronyell!!

  9. I love The Fault in Our Stars! But was not a fan of some of his other work. Happy Reading!

  10. John Green is an auto buy for me at this point. Even my least favorite book by him was great. I am very excited to read this book, and after listening to him read the first chapter, I knew I would like this book.

  11. I've not read anything by John Green and I can't say I'm trying to change that! It's awesome that he is finally publishing a new one though. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

  12. I've only read one short story by John Green in a Christmas anthology, but I do want to read more of his work (except for "The Fault In Our Stars", as that's much too sad....)

    This one does sound like something I'll like. Thanks for featuring this book! ENJOY!! :)

    Thanks as well for commenting on my CWW post!! <3 <3 :) :)

  13. I have somehow managed to only read one John Green novel (Fault) but I really need to squeeze in some more I just so rarely read contemporary. This one sounds great though!

  14. I haven't read anything by John Green before. I always think I'll add his books to my tbr, but I never get around to them. I hope you enjoy reading this!
