Fault in Our Stars, The
This story is about a girl who has the thyroid cancer and fall in love with a boy who lost a leg because of osteosarcoma. It presents how do they deal with their illness and embrace each other into their lives. It’s a heavy theme but the story is encouraging and positive. I feel so thankful that being alive and powerful to face all of the challenges in my life.

It is a beautiful piece; it got me into reading more of John Green's works, which are mostly just as amazing.
This book was so beautiful. I am inspired by this book to live to the fullest. There is a humorous side to this book, while it follows the seriousness of it. No book will ever beat the greatness of this book.
I did not enjoy the book as much as I thought I would. The writing bothered me. It seemed very informal and then throughout, there were difficult letters written to the author of her favorite book or very loaded passages. I wanted to keep reading only because I knew the ending and wanted to see where the book was going. From the beginning, Green made it apear that Hazel would be the one to die when in fact it was really Augustus. I wanted to see the switch. I think that I had such high expectations of the book because the pop culture surrounding it. This was all anyone could talk about for the past two years and I think I expected more. I also thought that since I like Nicholas Sparks novels, this would be similar; but I was mistaken. Overall it was a good story line but it was not a book for me.
Okay, so this book is amazing, so many feelings. Did I cry? Yes. Of course. I was an emotional wreck. If you haven't heard of this book all I have to say is... where have you been? Get up and go to your local bookstore and buy it. Or get it on your kindle, nook, iBooks, etc. I enjoy John Green's writing style, Back in high school, I read An Abundance of Katherines, and really liked it. Of course, Tumblr was full of "READ THIS BOOK" and "TFIOS is AWESOME", I was curious. When I saw it was John Green who wrote Abundance of Katherines I had to get the book. The only reason I put the book down was to try and stop from crying. When I finished it, I hugged it for about an hour. LOL. I'm excited for the movie to come out, hopefully its true to the movie, although the trailer makes it seem like it is.
