2014 Reading: #36 John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars


Book 36 in 2014 was John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars. I have been wanting to read this book for ages, and yesterday decided that even though I have several books on the go, I was going to read this anyway. Oh my, this book is incredible. I read it in one sitting – I stayed up late to finish it as I couldn’t put it down. This is a sad and fantastic read. This is a must-read book and easy to rate 5 out of 5. I don’t want to say too much, but this is well written, captivating and so sad, yet a great read. I still feel like I’m processing the book this morning.

Addition: E-book
Genre: Young adult
Published: 2012

  1. I’ve had this on my list for so long and just can’t seem to start it! I love John Green and all the vlogbrother videos and projects, but I was a bit disappointed with the one book I read by him (Looking for Alaska). I still have high hopes for The Fault in Our Stars, I think I need to bump it up my TBR list!

  2. My absolute faoivrte type of novel is a good action/adventure (so plot-based) BUT if I am given no reason to care about or connect with the characters, even the most action-packed novel will disappoint me. So I guess my answer is both, or rather character-driven novels that come packed with twists and turns.THE HUNGER GAMES, for example, is a plot-driven book with so much action you can’t help but turn the pages, and at the same time, all of it’s characters are complex from Katniss, to secondary characters like Haymitch. Maybe that’s why that book was near perfect in my eyes it had such a wonderful balance of plot and character. I recently read UNDER THE NEVER SKY (Veronica Rossi) and felt the same way about that novel. Every character was complex and layered but the plot was searing! Those are my faoivrte kind of books.For solely character-driven novels, some of my faoivrtes are: THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE (as you’ve mentioned), INVINCIBLE SUMMER, and THE SCORPIO RACES (which yes, has some action, but at it’s core, I think it weighs more to the character side).Sorry for writing a short novel! Great, post though Katy. Love it.
