Books to read before you see the film: Paper Towns by John Green

We adore the cinema here at the Book People. The big screen, the smell of popcorn, the shushing of talkers… We have a lot of love for film, especially when the movies are adaptations of bestselling books. 2015 has been a huge year for literary adaptations already with the likes of Far from the Madding Crowd, Child 44 and Fifty Shades of Grey all proving enormous hits.

Although not all films capture the spirits of the book entirely, we’re always willing to watch adaptations to see the direction in which the film heads. With plenty of adaptations to come before the end of the year, we thought it would be a good idea to look at some of the films coming up. And the books you should read up on before going to see them!

John Green’s Paper Towns
In cinemas 17 August

Paper Towns Cara Delevingne

John Green is one of the most popular authors writing for young adults at the moment and after the all-conquering success of the film adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars (have you stopped crying yet, because we certainly haven’t…), it was only a matter of time before Hollywood decided to tackle some of his other bestselling novels. Paper Towns, starring the popular model and actress Cara Delevingne and TFIOS actor Nat Wolff, is sure to be on every teenager’s must-watch list.
A road trip with a difference, the story follows Quentin and his unrequited crush Margo Spiegelman as they head off on a revenge journey. But the morning after the best night of Quentin’s life, Margo has gone missing – and seems to have left clues just for him to discover her whereabouts!
A coming-of-age story that manages to recall the atmosphere of Catcher in the Rye but with the added element of a Scooby Doo-esque mystery, we cannot recommend you read this book before seeing the film enough!


The new Paper Towns trailer has arrived!

At the Book People, we’re very excited to see that 20th Century Fox’s adaptation of John Green‘s Paper Towns has a brand new trailer. Let us know what you think…

After the huge success that was last year’s The Fault in Our Stars, the new Paper Towns film looks as though it will be a worthy YA book adaptation. Starring Cara Delevingne and Nat Wolff as Margo and Quentin respectively, Paper Towns looks as though it could be one of the biggest YA films of the year! We’re so, so excited! Have we said that we’re excited?!


The Book People on YouTube – The Fault in Our Stars review

The adaptation of John Green’s bestselling novel The Fault in Our Stars is set to hit cinemas this weekend and after supporting the book since its publication in 2012, all of us at the Book People cannot wait to see it on the big screen. The story of two teenage cancer sufferers – Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters – who fall in love against the odds, the book had us sobbing throughout and it seems like the movie will have us reaching for those tissues once more.

Currently the number one film in the United States, our resident BookTuber Sophie was lucky enough to see a fan screening last week. Did the film live up to her expectations? Has she finished crying yet? How were the cast, which includes Divergent’s Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, veteran Willem Dafoe, Jurassic Park’s Laura Dern and hotly tipped Nat Wolff? Watch the video above to find out Sophie’s thoughts.

 

The Fault in Our Stars book

 

Sophie also talks about two books from Faber & Faber that are on her reading list – Erin Lange’s Dead Ends and Butter. Compared in style to John Green and Wonder author R. J. Palacio, these are poignant books about challenging and important subjects that will leave their mark…
