John Green Week: The Fault in Our Stars

(Okay, first off I need to address the fact that I am a failure for posting this a day late. As many of you may know I have been extremely busy, but this is no excuse and somehow I will make it up to you! Maybe another giveaway?! You'll just have to wait and see!)

 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. 

I cried. So hard. Not even just because of what happens in the book, but also because every time I think of what this book gave to me, I want to cry happy tears. John Green has forever changed my life with this book. When I first heard about the book and all of the hype it was getting, I was expecting it to be amazing, but I certainly did not expect to get this much out of it. I wish I could reread it a thousand times! (The reason I can't is because I let a friend borrow it, and it will probably be continually passed around for quite some time.) I am considering going out to buy a second copy JUST so I can read it again! I have never, ever felt this way about a book. This book is so much more than just about Hazel, it's so much more than just about a romance. It's about how sometimes fighting so hard and quitting can lead to the same thing. Sometimes things are inevitable. Also, you will hurt people in your life and there's really nothing you can do to stop it. Even if it's not your fault. I love Hazel. Like a sister. Like my best friend. I actually understand her and with every decision she made (or tried to make) I understood why! Also let me tell you I am irrevocably in love with Augustus. WHY, OH WHY JOHN GREEN DO YOU HAVE TO CREATE BOYS THAT I WANT TO BE REAL?! It's like you made him just to dangle in front of my face the fact I CAN'T HAVE HIM. I wish that I could discuss with you guys everything that happened in this book, but I wouldn't be able to do that without spoilers. Literally I have spent the past hour writing and then erasing because I realize you have not read the book and by saying what I want to say I would in fact be a bad person! So if you want to talk to me about the book (whether you have read it or not), you can email me and I can discuss with you more in depth my insane love for this book. (You can find my email at the top of the page in the contact/policy.)

Realistically this book gets a 5/5. In my world it gets a ∞/5. (symbol = infinity)

As always, thanks for reading!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
