Recommend A…book that made you emotional

from 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.

 Oh gosh... this book! This. Book. Just wow. John Green has such a poetic way with words. There were so many quotable moments in The Fault in Our Stars! I giggled and I bawled. There was just so much to this story! I just don't even have words. 


  1. Fourth time (including mine) for this book! This is because it tears your heart out! I don't know how John Green does it, but oh my god THIS BOOK!!!! Too many feelings!

  2. This is officially the most popular pick! Every time I see a post recommending I feel like it should be my next read, but I'm not sure I'm ready for the emotions this week!

    Thanks for participating :)

  3. I own this one, but I haven't read this one or anything else by him. I will get to it one day.

  4. This is one the few books that made me physically shed a tear. That is saying something. Absolutely loved this book. Good pick!

  5. I've not read this one, it hits too close to home. I work at a hospital where I see these types of children fighting cancer each day - so sad!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment! Yay! :)
