Is it just me or is John Green everywhere lately? I understand that The Fault in Our Stars movie is going to come out soon, so there is promotion for that. But what is really annoying me lately is how people almost worship him and think he is just one of the best writers ever. 

I know everyone has their own taste but John Green is not the only author in YA. There is so many other authors, female authors to be exact, that have written better books than Green and are not getting the same recognition that he has been getting. 

I honestly don’t know where I’m going with this but just needed to say it. 

Yes. Thank you.

His popularity is, I’d say, largely due to his online presence, not his books. 

A lot of people know him from Vlogbrothers and all the various work him and his brother do through that and the projects they’ve started (nerdfighteria being the largest, I think). Projects that are basically for everyone and increases his visibility, because lots of different people get to know of him. 

He’s everywhere, probably because he covers so many things in his videos and is a person many young adults can relate to because he takes the time to try and understand us and take us seriously. 

Lots of people are skeptical of his books, or haven’t read them at all, but still like him because of something else he’s done - and he embraces this. 

Obviously the new The Fault In Our Stars movie means there’s an added level of focus on him, but that’ll fade, it always does. 

I’ll also say that in my experience lots of people read and love and admire the YA work of plenty of other authors, it’s probably just that because John Green - the man - is very visible and active online, his books become that much more talked about too, and some of people’s affection for him bleed over into affection for his books.
