Note to self: Always remember your caffeine, especially on Sunday. Today has consisted of caffeine withdrawal headaches, and eventually a crash that resulted in a little over an hour of sleep. Oh well. Now its raining hard which is rare for the super dry part of Texas I live in, and I am content. ANYWAYS. I really hadn’t looked into books lately because well, I just haven’t. But I kept seeing this “Fault in Our Stars” book pop up everywhere, so I became super curious. After deciding to actually read what the thing was about, I immediately got in my car, drove to Hastings and purchased it. Just in case you haven’t been in the know with this book, it’s about Hazel, a sixteen year old girl who has terminal cancer (in her lungs), and is dealing with her disease as well as love. IT. IS. AMAZING. Thats all I will say about the actual story of the book, the rest you will have to read.
I’ve seen plenty of disease movies, documentaries and so on, but this was my first book. It wasn’t just a book. It was an incredibly intelligent, put together, hit the nail on the head adventure. John Green is beyond talented in writing, AND writing about disease. I was nodding the whole way through and fell in love with how much I could relate. I also fell in love with Augustus, which you will too. Bottom line, I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY encourage you to get this book, read it and love it. It was incredible and totally just amazing. I cannot wait for the movie to come out! Please invest your time, it is worth it. Enjoy the new song of the week, He can only hold her by Amy Winehouse. Love love love it as well.
