the one with a book update

As you may or may not remember, I am reading 12 books in 2012 and Rob is reading 20 in 2012. I've been pretty slack (although I started off with a bang (see here). But this month I got back on track and completed my 3rd book (I've started two more but they are heavy reads so it's taken me awhile to finish them). 

This book was another one picked out by the fabulous Book Club I am in. "The Fault in Our Stars", by John Green. It was way better than I originally thought it would be - the title just sounded new agey and weird. But it is actually a line from Shakespeare, so as soon as I found that out, I jumped on board :)

I thought it was very well-written, but also just an easy read. It's an easy story to get lost in. I cried like a little baby at the end...Rob did not quite know what to do with me. I also always identify too strongly with the main character, which was unfortunate in this case since she had cancer and so I then felt like I had cancer for about a week. (Don't worry, I'm not ruining anything - that's a stated fact from the beginning.)

Anyway, if you are looking for an enjoyable, delightful, easy-read book written from a unique perspective you should check this sucker out. I loved it!
