The Fault in Our Stars - John Green I wasn't planning to read this book because of the serious subject matter but my friend recommended it to me and I'm really glad I gave it a go. I really liked Hazel's and Augustus' characters. I liked their simple, sweet love story and also the fact that they were avid readers and used a lot of wit in their conversations. I read the book in a matter of hours, evidence that I couldn't put it down. A bittersweet ending.
