Review: The Fault In Our Stars

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
Published by Dutton
Genre: YA
$17.99 (US hardback)
313 pages

What it's about:
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.

My thoughts:
I haven't cried so hard while reading a book in a long time. This book has left me reeling. I found myself wandering around the house in shock when I was finished. I had no idea what to do with myself.

It's been a few days since I finished the book and I still find myself thinking about the characters. I've been replaying parts from the book over and over in my head and get sad all over again. I can't stop thinking about the book. It got to me.

TFIOS is beautifully written and 100% heartbreaking. It will take your breath away (haha pune intended). It's now my favorite John Green book.

My rating: 11/10


  1. 11 out of 10? Wow. I do love me some John Green and I DID get this book...but I'm afraid because I know I'm going to be balling my eyes out.

  2. Yep, I need to get to this one!

  3. This has been on my TBR for the longest, but I feel like I have to really be in the mood for a good cry before I tackle it. Great review!


I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
