Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm will wrinkle your soul.
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?
