John Green Week: The Fault In Our Stars

on January 10, 2012


Today is the last day of John Green Week but I haven’t posted yet my reviews for the last two books of John Green that I recently read. I’m just busy lately helping my sister with her thesis but hopefully after this week I can finally go back blogging. I know I am really behind with my reviews and right now I am just taking a few minutes break from gigantic work loads in front of me. Anyway, since this is the last day of JG week event I’m giving you the sneak peak to John Green’s latest masterpiece, The Fault In Our Stars. The book is out today but for those who haven’t get there copy yet you can check the samples below. Enjoy!

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 12, Hazel was prepared to die until, at 14, a medical miracle shrunk the tumours in her lungs… for now. 

Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time (whatever that means), Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumours tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault. 

Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind.

    I’m not going to read the excerpts. I’ll wait until I have the book in my hands.

    But wow! That excerpt really grabbed me. I liked the line “…pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind.”
