 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.

 There is always that one book you want to read, but leave it at the end of your TBR for many reasons. Whether it be that everybody and the mother is telling me I have to read it, or it's a book that just happens gather enough followers that it ends up showing up on every blog that you check. Hyped books can go one of two ways, you can either kick yourself for putting it off for so long, or it would somehow feel like a let down.

We meet Hazel Grace, a sixteen-year-old with terminal thyroid cancer. Her mother thinks she's having an episode with depression, so her doctors suggest going to group therapy. This is where we meet the charismatic Augustus Waters. We take a trip into this phenomenal book and jump into the lives of Hazel and Augustus. It's amazing how these set of characters know nothing in life is ever set in stone, yet we get to live right along with them.

I've put off reading TFiOS for over a year but not because I didn't want to read it, but because I just never really felt like I was in the mood to read it. In my mind, TFiOS was one of those books that you had to be somewhat depressed to read it. Honestly all I heard when somebody pitched it to me was,"You are going to bawl your eyes out!" "It's so sad, but I loved it!" You can see why I put it off for so long. If you find yourself having the same thoughts as me, I can say you can cross them out without any worries. I found myself laughing so much more than I originally thought. I kept waiting to be hit by something else, but all I felt was absolute joy! Yes, there is heart wrenching moments, they essentially capture the essence of the entire book. Without them TFiOS wouldn't be complete. Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters will be characters I treasure forever.


  1. I agree completely. It's very sad, but it's life-affirming in a way as well, through its humor and philosophical musings.
