First Emotional Book of 2013

Fault In Our Stars by John Green was in the sale. It wasn't why I picked it up though! Two awesome friends mentioned it in passing on Plurk. The book needs to come with a warning, it will tear your heart out. It won't do it because you are reading a story about a girl with terminal cancer. You will because of the descriptions on the world and her thoughts on how she and others see their places in the world. It's funny too, the book challenges you to laugh and look passed all the pain and look at the good things in life and how people try to protect each other from pain.

There is love, teenage angst, a washed up writer, a guy who smokes cigarettes without smoking them and hope.

It felt like losing your co-rememberer meant losing the memory itself, as if the things we’d done were less real and important then they had been hours before.
