Book Review: The Fault In Our Stars

Title: The Fault in Our Stars
Author: John Green

Release Date:  January 10th 2012
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.
Okay, so I first heard about this book through the magic that is Tumblr. From what people were posting I'd
already labeled it a 'this is a book that will result in me in tears' kinda book. 
I was right!
So I started reading it and by 1am I'd finished it, an emotional wreck.  I have to admit this isn't the kind of book I would have read if it wasn't for the reviews. But I'm glad I did. The relationship between Hazel and Augustus is just beautiful, and was brilliantly written by John Green. There is a great sense of humor throughout the book too. This has quite easily become one of my favorite all time books! I've also heard that this has been optioned to become a film...one I'm going to have to take a box of tissues to.
