  • Fault In Our Stars

Okay, so, I realise I haven't written anything in such a long time but I would love to do a review so here it is.  

I'm sure by now you have all heard of a beautiful new movie coming out called The Fault In Our Stars.

It is about a girl with terminal cancer and things are amazing especially when she meets Augustus Waters at a support group 'in the literal heart of Jesus'.

But, of course, this movie originates from John Green's book. It really is a beautiful read and despite it sounding very typical and girly, there are so many guys reading it and I love it! I've only had it a few weeks and the first time I cried my eyes out and I'm now reading it again for a second time.  

John Green is a fabulous author and really has met the standard required and tackled the depths of such a serious issue without making it, well, depressing.  

It is narrated by 16-year-old Hazel Grace and she wants of course, to just be normal.  

The book is such a hard-hitting, tear jerker but it is strangely truthful despite the fact an 'Augustus Waters' type of man does not exist in real life.  

After you read it - and I'm sure see the movie too - you really see things in such a different way and I'm so so thankful for this book and the insight it has given me. 

John Green also has a YouTube channel with his brother called VlogBrothers and even if you are interested in none of this, you should check them out - they do everything, seriously, they have over 1000 videos, so go and have a laugh for a while and thank you for reading.

I loved The Fault in Our Stars and both the book and the movie are perfection! Augustus Waters is slowly (that's a lie it's actually very quickly) taking over my life and even thinking about the book makes me cry.

John Green you writing genius!
