Book Club Friday-- The Fault in Our Stars.
My Thoughts: It's difficult for me to talk about what I loved about this book without giving away the ending! But I thought that it was an incredibly sweet and deep love story-- especially for a young adult book. I laughed, I cried, and I laughed while I was crying (which thoroughly confused my husband, who threatened to take the book away from me during the crying phases). What I didn't love about the book were the main characters. Hazel and Gus were completely unbelievable as real people to me-- they were far too deep-thinking and self-aware to be real teenagers, even ones with cancer. They felt like Dawson's Creek characters. But despite my inability to really connect with the characters, I definitely connected with the story and enjoyed it. It's one I highly recommend!
