The Fault in Our Stars

Last night at about 1:00 a.m I finished one of the best books I have ever read.  I'm sure everyone on the planet is pretty familiar with the book, The Fault in Our Stars.  And I'm telling you, if you haven't read it yet, you need to go get it, and read it NOW. The characters Hazel and Augustus are so believable and I got so emotionally attached to the story, that by the end, I was surprised that I was just sitting on my bed in my room!
John Green is an amazing author.  That guy knows how to write, he knows how to make me feel so happy one moment, and the next moment, miserable and crying tears into my pillow.  If you haven't read the book, here is the summary 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.

This book was amazing and it literally took me like 2 days to finish.  This book has just the right amount of happiness and sadness, but not too sad that it's depressing.  The Fault in Our Stars is bittersweet, which is a great way for a book to end, not overly happy, but not heart-breakingly sad.  

I'm also so excited for The Fault in Our Stars movie to come out on June 6! Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort will be the perfect Hazel and Augustus.  I can't wait!



Have you read The Fault in Our Stars yet?  Are you excited for the movie?  Leave a comment below!

Thanks for reading! :)

  3. Welcome to the TFIOS admirer's group! :D Yes, it's a bittersweet story and I loved it as well. ^_^
    I'm not sure if I'm too keen on the movie, though, mostly because how I imagined Hazel to be, it's nowhere like Shailene Woodley :/ :P

    1. Yes, one of the best books ever written I'd have to say!! And I guess I was just imagining Hazel as Shailene because I read the book after the movie trailer came out! Haha :)
