I own this book but the copy I have just happens to be a signed copy that I just happened to discover on the shelves on Target on a random afternoon, so I obviously had to be super careful with it and I was totally scared to take it anywhere within seven feet of my shelf and I didn’t even open it all the way to read it just so I could keep it in pristine condition. So the reading took several nights.
This book is my favorite because John Green is an amazing writer and he is the only writer I’ve read who actually ventures to write about cancer and make it seem understandable. I’m not trying to say I understand cancer at all, but I feel like after reading this book I understand more what a fictional character with cancer feels. And it just makes me feel, period. I like my books to make me feel.
I actually already bought a ticket to go see the movie in a couple days and I’m kind of looking forward to seeing this book played out on the big screen and I’m planning on taking tissues because I expect to cry. Cathartic release and all that.
After this book I feel much differently than I did earlier, after I finished “The One,” but I kind of like that my readings are diverse. Keeps things interesting.
In honor of the movie this week, you must view the extended trailer.
Not gonna lie, the trailer made me tear up. I’m going to lose it in the theater, I’m calling it now.
Now that I’ve stayed up reading until 1 a.m. I should probably go to sleep.
If it’s the only thing you ever do, read this book.
