Ahoy!

So, I'm suffering from a SEVERE case of Blogger's Block and apparently, if it is this severe, there is no cure.

So, I decided to delve into the murky depths of Goodreads that have been untouched for months and embarrass myself by showing you my early work share with you an early review! Seriously, it's embarrassing. Please forgive me, I was only a rookie. 

In a Nutshell:
Despite having terminal cancer, Hazel and Augustus have decided to make the most of it. 


The Actual Review: 

        Wow, I couldn't put the book down. I have read stories similar to these before, but none as witty, devastating and powerful as TFIOS. I read it very quickly.

      It is full of wit, charm and interesting use of circumstances. It is amazing: both humorous and sad in the right places. 

    Despite all of this, I do still have a few issues with it like the 'metaphor' (?!) which I understand but I just think it is stupid and van Houten's.... Ignorance. 


Rating: 

*****

In Conclusion: 
  • Feels, much of them
  • Strange messages
  • Quick-read!

  1. I really love the fault in our stars, I read it in one sitting because I sat down with it in the morning and couldn't bring myself to move until it was done that evening ! It was such a touching book yet some how had the perfect mix of humour and made me laugh out loud more than it's appropiate to say at some of the funny lines :) Hey, everyone had to start somewhere and I really hope your writers block goes soon !

    Lots of love, Marianne xxx

  2. I haven't read TFIOS, but I'm glad you enjoyed it way back when.I'm not sure it's my style of book, but who knows, maybe I will give it a go someday.

  3. Hope you get over your blogger's block soon. I really liked this too but thought the teens talked a bit too mature for their age.
