Finally bought it yesterday, haven’t finished it yet, but I feel like it’s already one of my favorite books ever.
It’s crazy how much I identify with Aza...
And now: welcome to ‘counseling angi 101’:
.
“One of the challenges with pain - physical or psychic - is that we can really only approach it through metaphor. It can’t be represented the way a table or a body can. In some ways, pain is the opposite of language.”
She turned to her computer, shook her mouse to wake it up, and then clicked an image on her desktop.
“I want to share something Virginia Wolf wrote: ‘English, which can express the thoughts of Hamlet and the tragedy of Lear, has no words for the shiver and the headache... The merest schoolgirl, when she falls in love, has Shakespeare or Keats to speak her mind for her; but let a sufferer try to describe a pain in his head to a doctor and language at once runs dry.’ And we’re such language-based creatures that to some extent we cannot know what we cannot name. And so we assume it isn’t real. We refer to it with catch-all terms, like ‘crazy’ or ‘chronic pain’, terms that both ostracize and minimize. The term ‘chronic pain’ captures nothing of the grinding, constant, ceaseless, inescapable hurt. And the term ‘crazy’ arrives at us with none of the terror and worry you live with. Nor do either of those terms connote the courage people in such pains exemplify, which is why I’d ask you to frame your mental health around a word other than crazy.”
“Yeah,” I said.
“Can you say that? Can you say that you’re courageous?”
I screwed up my face at her. “Don’t make me do that therapy stuff,” I said.”

Unglaublich. Mein Herz ist gebrochen 💔
Ich nähere mich dem Ende des Buches, nur noch wenige Seiten fehlen, aber ich finde einfach nicht die Kraft, es weiter zu lesen.
Gestern Nacht habe ich Rotz und Wasser geheult und ich habe Angst vor dem, was das Ende des Buches mit mir machen wird.
John Green hat definitiv einen neuen Fan gewonnen. Obwohl ich anfangs skeptisch war. Aber dieses Buch spricht so viele Ängste an, die wir sonst verdrängen. Die Angst jung und unbedeutend zu sterben. Ohne etwas hinterlassen zu haben und ohne die Dinge erlebt zu haben, von denen wir doch irgendwie glauben, dass sie uns zustehen. Von denen wir ganz selbstverständlich annehmen, dass wir sie erleben werden. Und dann plötzlich die Erkenntnis, dass dies zwar eine erfundene Geschichte ist, dass es aber überall auf der Welt passiert und das nichts, absolut nichts selbstverständlich sein sollte. Weil du nicht weißt, was dein Schicksal für dich bereithält. Und das Schicksal kann manchmal ein wirklich mieser Verräter sein.
Eine Frage an die, die es gelesen haben.. Auf einer Skala von 1-10 wie viel Kraft brauche ich, um das Ende zu lesen?

I read Turtles All the Way Down like 15 days ago and I was too lazy to write anything down and now I've mostly forgotten everything. Woohoo! Go stupid me!
I do remember that I actually liked it though! Yes. I liked it. It's typical John Green and if you dive into it knowing that, you'll probably love it too.

The premise is simple. Aza, a sixteen year old girl with major anxiety problems is just trying her best to be a good friend and a good daughter and solve the mystery of a missing billionaire at the same time.
What I loved about this book was how real Aza's anxiety felt. Her thought loops suffocate and drown you. Its not pretty and can get really gruesome at points but that's how it works. I also loved Aza's best friend Daisy, with her Star Wars fanfiction and get rich quick ideas.
If you go into this book expecting a good mystery or a solid plot then you're going to be very disappointed. Cause that's not what the book is about. John Green breaks the norms of conventional story telling by giving us a protagonist who doesn't conquer her weakness (her anxiety) at the end and doesn't walk off into the sunset.

In addition to that you have the usual John Green elements of philosophic ramblings and poetic language and random trivia on the subject of stars and the universe and in this case a taratua. All in all though, it was a fun and quick read.

Do you like John Green's books? Have you read Turtles All the Way Down? If you have did you like it? Or do you just like John Green as a person and not his books? Or do you hate him as well?

Good day! Winter's have finally started in Karachi. I love winters, snuggling in your bed with a good book and a warm cup of hot chocolate, it can't get better than that. But i have to wait for my exams to get over, it will be a tough week so I'll probably not post that's why i took a new picture ☄️

I will read this in a few days and post the review up on my story.❤️

I’m currently reading T U R T L E S A L L T H E W A Y D O W N by @johngreenwritesbooks and absolutely loving it! 🐢 I’m only 100 pages in so far and really loving the very accurate #anxietyspiral descriptions that are all too familiar to me 😂 Have you read it yet? What are your thoughts? #mentalhealth #storyofthemind #johngreen #turtlesallthewaydown #anxiety #ocd Here’s the synopsis: “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.”

Yesterday I turned 18, and I got to spend it with family and friends at triple crown. Thomas got me a signed (!!!) copy of my favorite author John Green's new book Turtles All The Way Down that I've wanted since like May when it was announced it was being released in October. I love it so much, I promise I'll never dogear the pages (maybe) 😭 😊😭 He also got me a giant stuffed moose that I wanted and flowers ❤️😭 it was over all a great day and I can't believe I'm a legal adult 😱😂❤️❤️

Hello hello 🍂
Jour 20 du #challengewlb : Un livre que vous associez à une chanson !
.
Depuis la sortie du film, c’est vrai que j’associe beaucoup La face cachée de Margo de John Green à Smile de Mikki Ekko qui était présent dans la bande annonce.
.
D’ailleurs je suis fan de cette chanson !
.
Et vous, quel chanson vous fait penser à un livre ?

Connaissez vous ce livre ? Il parle de deux adolescent atteints du cancer, je viens de le finir.
Il me semble qu'il y a le film mais je ne l'ai pas vu!
Quand au livre, j'ai bien aimé la légèreté et la poésie de certaine phrase, il était agréable à lire, j'ai été surprise de la fin que j'ai trouvé très belle personnellement même si malgré tout dans ce livre tout le long j'ai trouvé "qu'il manquait un truc"
L'avez vous lu?
