Title/author: The Fault in our stars by John Green
Originally published/ year published: January 10th 2012
Genre: Young adult, fiction, romance, contemporary
How I got this book: bought
Why I read this book: The story looked like an amazing one!
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

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. 

Amazing book, I didn't think I would like it this much!

I read this back in 2014, 2 months before my aunt died of cancer. Back when I read this I knew she wouldn't survive and just felt like wanting a connectuon between the illness and her. The reason I read this was to prepare for her death, which sadly came sooner than thought. My darling aunt, please know I've always seen you as the best mum possible and that I will always love you!

Until now I just didn't have the guts to review this book. I did on goodreads but not here. Now I am finally ready and I'll show you the thoughts on this amazingly written book! I ended up loving this book, altough the end was extremely sad and didn't see it coming!

The book is about a girl called Hazel. She meets this very handsome guy called Augustus at a cancer support group. Yea Hazel has cancer and Augustus used to have..... He immediately falls in love with her and she quite likes him too! They both like reading very much and Hazel recommends him a book. When he likes the book he decides to give his genie wish to Hazel to go to Amsterdam to meet the author of the book. They meet the man, have romantic dinner and visit museums. But soon she discovers Augustus not being well and seeing him in pain. Whe she asks he answers by telling his cancer came back worse than ever. When beeing home it just becomes very bad and suddenly he dies having left a letter from the author to Hazel.

The ending was so sad. I know having cried for days back when I read this, mostly because I was in the cancer situation myself. Cancer is an illness you see so obviously but you can't do anything about. It just kills you seeing someone else in such a pain. Hazel and Augustus made the story really alive and worth living for.

Thank you so much for writing this book John Green!
I gave the book 5 out of 5 stars.
