Wishlist Wednesday #11

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly book blog hop hosted by Dani at Pen to Paper where we will post about a book that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added, that we can't wait to get off the wishlist and onto our bookshelves.



Okay-  So many people have told me that I have to read this book now, and I have to say- it sounds AMAZING. Most of the reviews I've seen so far have been 5 stars, and so many people say the book made them cry. I love a book that can really stir up my emotions, so I have to nab a copy of this one, (and then find the time to read it) fairly soon.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
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.

  1. Absolutely one of my favorite books of 2012 (or ever). I truly loved it, even though I'm another one who basically dissolved into a puddle of tears while reading it. What a great choice! I hope you get it soon.
