WoW: The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

"Waiting On" Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, where you highlight a book you are anxiously awaiting to read.

For this week's post I decided on a book which has already been released, but I haven't yet had the chance to read it. It is John Green's "The Fault In Our Stars".

Goodreads description:

Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 12, 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.

I have been wanting to read this book ever since it was released. The story sounds so incredible and touching, and I wish I could read it right now. It is actually one of those books that should have made it onto my TTT list yesterday. I will be stalking my library and bugging the life out of the staff there, until they will finally get a copy, so I can devour it.


What about you? Do you have a book -or books - you cannot wait to get your hands on?

  2. It IS an incredibly touching story, that much I can say. And ever since I've read TFiOS, I can't wait to read other works by John Green. Unfortunately, libraries in my country don't have John Green, so I have to wait to buy them. :(

    Great choice I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did!
