The Fault in Our Stars

The Fault in Our Stars

Audience: Older Teens

From Goodreads:
Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten.

Holy smokes, two years goes by fast! I am probably the last person on the planet to read this book.

But here’s the deal -- it was SIGNED. Which means it cannot leave my apartment and I usually take my books everywhere with me. I didn’t want to mess it up! So it got dusty on my bookshelf.

I had a free afternoon, and felt ambitious - so I read it. In one. Afternoon. It was just as moving and fantastic as people had described.

Augustus Waters was, indeed, a plot twist. I loved the adventure and romance they had together. It reminded me - epic love stories have tragically epic endings. That being said, I cried the last quarter of the book. Naturally.

  1. Such a good book! I read it in no time too, and I also read it only a few months ago. I wanted to read it before the movie came out but funnily enough I think I'm going to wait to watch the movie on DVD instead of in the theaters because I will loud ugly cry and I would rather just do that in the privacy of my own home. (I literally cried for like half of the book.)

    1. Oh my gosh. I never even thought about that. I should probably wait for the DVD, too. :S

  2. Yay you FINALLY read it!! This book destroyed me for a good week afterwards. I was like WHY??? And then I was like everyone dies, what's the point of life??? Basically I was a hot mess with a bad/good book hangover. I can't wait for the movie!! It's going to be a repeat of me going to see Titanic in middle school. Ugly crying in public. I mean I teared up watching the trailer, so it's going to happen :(

    1. I did!!! So far behind in books and blogging. I don’t even know what I’ve been busy doing! But my DVR is full and my clothes are not put away, so it wasn’t TV or laundry! Yeah, ugly crying in public. I think Kay has a good idea there. DVD.
