Book Summary: 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.
Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green's most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

Review: This was the first book I have ever read by John Green and it set the bar really high. I loved every single aspect of this story. Going into this book, I had been one of the last people to read this and hearing great things, I had very high hopes. One side of me had really high expectations but the other side was worried that it'd just be another typical, sad love story. As this story came to an end, one word to NEVER describe this book is typical. It might sound cliche, but this story really did have me guessing at every corner. The plot was unmatchable and the love the two main characters portrayed was a thing of beauty. Please, if you haven't read this book yet DROP EVERYTHING AND GO READ IT! Now all I can do is pray that the movie will do it justice. Love love love.

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

I have come to realize that I miss book blogging! This is something I used to love doing, and I really need to get back to doing things that I love. To kick it off, I went on a trip to Barnes and Noble to pick up some books to get me back into the swing of things.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Date rape—from the accused’s point of view—is the subject of this “finely crafted and thought-provoking page-turner” (SLJ), a National Book Award Finalist from Printz Honor–winning author Chris Lynch. Now available in a tenth-anniversary edition.
Keir Sarafian may not know much, but he knows himself. And the one thing he knows about himself is that he is a good guy. A guy who’s a devoted son and brother, a loyal friend, and a reliable teammate. And, maybe most important of all, Keir is a guy who understands that when a girl says no, she means it. But that is not what Gigi Boudakian, childhood friend and Keir’s lifelong love, says at all. What Gigi says seems impossible to Keir—something inexcusable—the worst thing he can imagine, the very opposite of everything he wants to be. As Keir recalls the events leading up to his f…
