The Fault in Our Stars - John Green When I picked this book up I wasn't expecting it to be my favourite Contemporary of all time! Just a warning, if you haven't already read this book: Buy a box of tissues before buying! You're going to need them!From the first page I was instantly transported in to the life of Hazel, a sixteen year old girl who was diagnosed with Stage IV Thyroid cancer at the age of thirteen. I really loved Hazel and found it very easy to read from her perspective. John Green has made this serious subject into something fun to read as well as keeping the solemn side. I really don't think I've ever read a book in first person that is so descriptive and informative. The style of writing is very complex but also understandable which made it flow along very smoothly, as books should do. This books contains some of my favourite quotes and I still really can't believe how any book can be written as well as this one. If I can write half as good as this then I know that one day I'll be an amazing writer!I love the cover to this book! Can I buy this book 2,000 times just so I can have a room full of the covers to stare at all day?! I know, I am extremely sensible! I love how the dark blue writing blends in with the lighter blue background, and doesn't look intrusive at all. It's memorable as well, as some covers can all look the same nowadays.I really loved this book: up until the ending. I was fine, and then I hit this part and started getting incredibly panicky. Like this:**I DON'T OWN THIS**And then I was like this:OR THIS!And then:OR THIS!!Yes, I was an emotional mess!I finally reached the stage when I was like this: I needed comfort food!I really loved The Fault in Our Stars, even though I was on an emotional rollercoaster whilst reading it! It is definitely one of my favourite books OF ALL TIME! I would highly recommend it to anyone and will definitely be doing so in 2013!RATING: 5/5-Favourites Shelf
