The Fault in Our Stars by John Green




The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

This book made me feel every single feel that can be felt. Seriously.





Was I the last person on this planet to read this book? Perhaps. If you're one of the holdouts please get to the nearest library/bookstore and get your hands on a copy. It's brilliant.

    1. Amen indeed! I was a bit nervous that it wouldn't live up to the hype. It does!

  7. Oh man. I am certainly curious about this one (because of the hype) but... for one thing, I'm not really attracted to YA and for another, stories about kids with cancer kind of hits close to home for me. I've heard enough firsthand-account stories from a loved one who had Hodgkins lymphoma as a child. Hmmm...

    1. I typically don't read YA either, I'm glad I made an exception ;) I won't lie, this is a tough book to read at times. As my librarian said when I checked this out, "Oh, it's one of those jolly books about kids with cancer." So yea, definitely not an easy read but it's so worth it!

  8. Absolutely Jennifer, this is the best emotional roller coaster book ever. And I really think it will pass the test of time.

  10. You are NOT the last person on the planet. That person would be me. I can't imagine why I still have not read it yet! I imagine your feels are a perfect portrayal. :)

  11. I made this book one of my first reads in January. I thought I was the ONE who was the last person on the planet to read it, but it's been popping up on several blogs since January...

  14. I hesitated reading this book because of the subject matter. Just this week, I caved in. My daughter had asked for this book for her birthday so I decided to read it too. I can't believe a book can be so sad yet so uplifting at the same time! It's so worth the read.

    1. Oh, I'm so glad you read it! Wasn't it beautiful?? The saddest subject matter on the planet, and yet the most hopeful book. Sigh :) I hope your daughter loves it too!

  16. I read this about a week after you, so no, you weren't the last, I was. And you're right, every feeling. I finished and was in the best place and the worst place at the same time. The quality of this book is amazing.
