Recent Reads: The Fault In Our Stars

So last week I went to this Fashion night/ Art event thing that I thought was
going to be alot of fun which really wasn't.
But at that event you could sign up to win a variety of door prizes.
So me and my Mom both signed up and I was lucky enough to win a gift card to
a local mall.
Which was awesome, Who doesn't enjoy free money?!
So Saturday I went shopping and bought a few books at
Barnes & Noble.
Which was fun because I'm a total nerd who loves
So I bought three one gift(for my brother, cause' I'm so To Selena, With Love, & The Fault in our Stars.
"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."

 After reading the overview some of you may be saying
"Why would you buy a book like that? It's so sad."
Yes, That is true a story about a kid who has cancer is always going to be
sad. But something about this book just wanted me to take a look.
Love stories interest me. I feel like reading a love story in a book can be epic & wonderful
cause' sometimes in real life that isn't the case. More times you'll have
an epic heartbreak.

The Story follows the day to day life of
Hazel Grace Lancaster
who's mother thinks needs to have a life and stop thinking about herself
So she makes her attend a support group at the local church.
 Where she meets Augustus Waters, a 17 year old who's in remission.

In the book they become instant friends
and end up bonding over her favorite book
An Imperial Affliction
about a young girl also with cancer.
It follows the two becoming friends and then more.
Gus help Hazel Grace grant her a wish because he felt as though she wasted the first on
a trip to Disney.

I don't want to give any spoilers just a little peak into this amazing book.

I would love to hear in the comments below if you've read the book or your take on the end.

I wasn't thrilled with how the book ended.
And wish they would have given us more. Or what happened within the next year or two.

I know they are in talks to make this into a movie, Which I don't know
if film can give this story the true Justice it needs.
I feel like it could end up Twilight-ish cheesy.
(Don't get me wrong I love Twilight, But the movies are on the edge of cheesy, But I still love

Would love to hear your thoughts and if you haven't read it, id recommend stoping by your local book store.
