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. - Good Reads

I read this while I was on a blog break last year and wanted to post a review on it, mostly to share the love. This book was absolutely heart breaking. Thinking about it still gets me teary. Mostly because I actually lost a friend to cancer a few months before I read it and she actually was the only real life friend that I had that really loved to read, and she read a lot of YA. It hurts my heart that she'll never get a chance to read it, or any other book for that matter. And the character of Hazel reminded me a lot of my friend as well. Sarcastic and intelligent. The love story in this book is very beautiful and it's just...

Honestly, I don't want to ruin this book for anyone, but the ending surprised me, and I absolutely and completely recommend The Fault In Our Stars. Read it at least once. It's worth it!

And they just started filming for a film adaption! So we can all look forward to shedding tears with complete strangers in a crowded cinema! 

“Oh, I wouldn't mind, Hazel Grace. It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by you.” 


  1. Ahhh, you made me get all teary-eyed talking about your friend. I'm so happy you enjoyed this book so much.

    1. Yeah, I was teary-eyed writing it! I really miss her... she was a really, really cool person. :)

  2. This book! I just, can't even put it into words. You did a wonderful job though. <3

  3. This was such a beautiful book and yes, extremely heartbreaking in every way. I'm really excited to see what they do with the movie. Thanks for your thoughts.

    1. I'm really eager to see it! I'm sure it's going to be really good! :) Thank you for their comment! :)

  4. There really is not much to say about this book that hasn't been said by the majority, isn't it?

    1. Indeed! Sometimes all I can do is nod in agreement! :)

  5. I cried reading this book, and now I cried reading your review...I'm sorry for your loss.

  6. I just read this one a couple of weeks ago, and your review agrees with mine! I'm sorry to hear about your friend; that is so hard :( I'm looking forward to seeing the movie, although I know it'll probably make me cry as much as the book did.
