The fault in our stars - Book Review.

 I read this book a while ago and then I watched the movie.

"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."

This is not an easy book to review. I feel like my review is going to do it no justice. It's a beautiful, sad and romantic story about a girl who has terminal cancer. Hazels life can be prolonged but her life can not be saved. Hazel's mother and doctor decide that hazel needs some support, so they suggest a support group, which Hazel is not keen on attending. Hazel DOES attend the support group and that is how she comes about meeting Augustus. They fall in love... 

Of course the book is centered around the fact Hazel has cancer but there is so, so much more to this book than just that. It's sweet and cute, romantic and it's just beautiful. The story is about two teenagers falling in love and it's about life and death. I can't put into words how this book made me feel, honestly, you just need to read it.

I could not put this book down. Honestly, I found it really difficult to put it down and it took me no time at all to read. I was hooked from the first page. 
I did not see the twist in this book coming AT ALL. That really messed with my emotions... Yes, I did ugly cry. A lot! For much of this book. It's sad and yet so beautiful. I felt all of the emotions reading this book. It's everything a book should be - It has an amazing story, it's beautifully written, the story is beautiful and sad at the same time.It's full of quotes, too! I learned so much from this book and it's a book that is going to stay with me for a very long time.

  2. I didn't see the twist coming either - and I cried! I don't think that I would be able to watch the film.


  3. I loved this book and definitely preferred the book over the film and I did cry too!! Thanks for sharing with #ReadWithMe

  4. I have been meaning to read this book for so long but not sure I could handle the emotion of it

  5. I haven't read the book or seen the film. It sounds like the sort of book I would 'enjoy' (not quite the right word, I know!), so I should give it a go.

  6. I just loved this book. I thought it was magic! #readwithme
