Throwback Thursday: The Fault in our Stars by John Green


Its time to throw it back to a book that I read back in February, and this happened to be the second time I've read it. 

I love John Green, although some of his books lately seem to have the same plot. Still, they are well written and usually have some kind of a feel good or life lesson to learn.

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.

Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning author John Green's most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

I never thought I would love a book about heartache so much, but this book, even though its content is completely heartbreaking, I couldn't put the book down.

Hazel has always had cancer. She knows that she won't live long and the things normal kids her age do are out of her reach. At Cancer Kid Support Group, she is reminded of these things at every turn. Its not until Augustus Waters shows up to support group, that life seems to finally have hope. That is, until the unthinkable happens.

I fell in love with Hazel and Augustus right away. They were so cute together and the way they communicated was wonderful. I think my love for the characters is what really drove the story and made me want to read a book about kids dying of cancer. A sad situation, was turned into a wonderful story of love, even in the worst of times.

Bring a tissue box, because this story is going to make you cry. Worth every tear.
