Review: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Description: 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

My Thoughts:  I gave in to the hype. Everyone said this book was the best thing since the wheel and I decided to decide for my own if it was true. I decided to determine for myself whether or not this book would actually make my cry and laugh and feel wonderful things inside. It was all that and more.

You know how you find those precious books that you begin to read, and almost immediately are drawn in. You become attached to the characters and your dreams become their dreams. You haven’t even gotten to the end of the book and already you want to tell the world about it. You want everyone to know how amazing it is and how perfect and beautiful. You want to share it with every little kid and every adult, and every time someone complains about how sucky their life is you want to smack them upside the head with that one perfect book? This was that book for me. I loved it. It made me feel absolutely everything. It was heartbreaking and amazing. 

I don’t want to give anything away because some of the majesty of this book is reading and meeting the characters for yourself. Do yourself a favor and read it, but be warned; if you’re one of those readers who get so connected to books that you feel exactly as the character does (kind of like a hypochondriac but with books…hypobookriac?) then I’d suggest you brace yourself. This book does interfere with reader moods. 5 Big Stars.

Yep, but it doesnt happen nearly as much as it used to. It's probably because I no longer have the Captcha thingy, but I hate that thing so I refuse to add it. I'll just delete all the spam comments and move on.

Now THIS one I need to try. I keep hearing so much about it that im worried it wont live up to the hype, but I need to just stop being stubborn and go read it, lol. I was like that with Hunger Games, I refused to read it because so many people were raving about it back when it was first out as a book - then when I finally read it, it totally blew me away and I couldn't believe I waited to long to read it. Hoping for the same thing with this one. Your review is the kick in the butt reminder I need to get on to it!
