Stella's Recent Reviews

The Fault in Our Stars completely captivated me. I was crying and then laughing and then crying again. I was attached to the characters and I still am, months after reading the book. John Green shows the reader sadness, love, hate, fright and confusion all in one paragraph through humor and the deep connection with the characters that I still feel months after reading the book. The Fault in Our Stars is absolutely my favorite book. It is not just some cheesy romance with a perfect fairy tale ending but it's different and it is a reminder that life is not a perfect fairy tale. I hope never to be in the characters' situation, but watching them go through such tragedy was in its own way magical.

 
 
 
 

Just as I was leaving the bookstore the cover of Hush, Hush caught my eye, and since the first time I opened the cover no book or person for that matter has been able to tear me away. But readers beware, the only bad thing about digging into this great addictive series is the sad realization that you have to return to your normal life while waiting for the next book in the series.
