The Fault in Our Stars
by John Green

Summary from Goodreads :
Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 13, 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.

Maybe I'm the only one who haven't read this book *facepalm*. Looks like I won't read any bad things about this book because it has fantastic rating at Goodreads. I still haven't read any John Green book yet but this sounds a very good tear-jerker reads, sometimes I need it =)
I often see this at my local import bookstore but I can't buy it for some reason and that pissed me off ><;;;; I hope I can purchase this awesome book soon =). Anyone already read this book? What do you think about it?

I've had this one on my shelves for a little while now, but I still haven't read it. I have three John Green books, but haven't picked up any of them. Perhaps I should this month!

Great pick :)

Gosh I've only read the blurb and it's made me sad! I can see this book being such a tear-jerker plus really touching. I haven't read this one and I can see it making me a complete wreck but I am intrigued! Hope you get hold of a copy asap :)

I like the idea of this book and yet I'd be afraid of not liking the ending. I get invested in the characters and then with cancer being a main concept, I just don't know...

Here's my post:

Dont feel to bad.. I haven't read it either! I actually have no desire to read this book. It doesn't really sound like something I would like. I might get it from the library though.

Here's my Wishlist Wednesday

I've heard this is great but it just sounds way too sad for me to read! Hope you get it soon!

Mmm, a cancer book that makes everyone cry. Not my cup of tea, but I've heard really great things. Hope you get your hands on it soon. :)
