Take it from John Green & Harlan Coben

John Green Book Quotes are so witty and epic that I can’t help but share it. And also, try reading Harlan Coben’s attempt of witty-remarks/another-character-description-from-the-protagonists point of view, it’s half as funny as how John does it. Their witty wordplay are so inspiring and funny that it normally completes my day.

John Green: (quoted from Looking for Alaska)

"What the hell is that?" I laughed.
"It’s my fox hat."
"Your fox hat?"
"Yeah, Pudge. My fox hat."
"Why are you wearing your fox hat?" I asked.
"Because no one can catch the motherfucking fox."


Harlan Coben: (quoted from One False Move)

"…When Myron looked at the reception desk-the place where Esperanza usually sat- he nearly jumped back. Big Cyndi sat silently watching him. She was far too big for the desk- far too big for the building, really- and the desk actually teetered on her knees. Her make up would be labeled ‘too garish’ by members of Kiss. Her hair was short and seaweed green. The T-Shirt she wore had the sleeves ripped off, revealing biceps the size of basketballs."


Having read 2 books by Harlan Coben, Myron Bolitar series, I often wondered if he’s gay. haha. Or is this just how he characterized Myron Bolitar, the good-looking-former-basketball-player-hunk-who-loves-to-make-funny-remarks-about-other-people’s-appearance kind of guy. But no. You will read the same remarks, subtly, on all his stand alone novels-minus Myron Bolitar, that is. 

So, I just love to read these nerdy yet funny stuff from John Green and Harlan Coben. If you read atleast one of their books, who wouldn’t?


John Green is my Peter Van Houten. He is my best friend and he doesn’t know my existence.
