The Fault In Our Stars

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 tumors 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 have only one word for this book..
Wow.

I finished reading this book last week after maybe a day? I just knew I had to include it in a post however I felt it deserved it's own. This has been at the top of my list for a while now, there was an immense amount of publicity surrounding this book when it was released so I didn't think the story would be all that, especially after finding out it was to do with a cancer story (I just find them rather repetitive and slightly boring oops.) However jumping into the first chapter my mind was changed, for the better.

The story follows Hazel on her journey with terminal cancer. At the very beginning of the book Hazel joins a support group for cancer patients where she meets Augustus, a gorgeous Osteosarcoma patient in remission. He becomes her partner in her journey through cancer. Throughout the book we see their relationship blossom. Just reading this book I could feel the love and emotion, I knew what was coming but it was so perfectly put together. A work of art you could say.

I have slowly learnt from start to finish this is easily my favorite book. It's heart gripping and ever so sad and just so full of love. I will happily admit I cried my way through the last chapter and I probably will every time I read this book.
