What I'm Reading.

Truth be told I'm not actually reading The Fault in Our Stars; I already finished it.  I was far too close to it to announce my reading mid-book.

There aren't sufficient words in my vocabulary to describe how much I loved this book.  I inhaled it as quickly as I could, crying the entire way.  Please note this book is not for the faint of heart because cancer and love are real and some real scary shit, but John Green manages to package it all in a YA novel that both inspires and destroys. 

I am not the same person I was before I read it.  I usually flippantly say that because I live in a constant state of hyperbole, but I really mean it this time.  I wanted to start rereading this book before I even finished it.

Have you read it?  If you have and hated it please don't tell me, I don't think I could handle it in my fragile state.  If not, what are you reading?

Damn, I hadn't even heard of this book! I'll have to check it out.

I just started The Art of Fielding and really like it so far. I already feel like I want to read it all the time and everything else in my life is just getting in the way.

That's exactly how I felt about this book. I kept sneak-reading it at my desk, then without fail would begin to tear up and had to put it away.

I just got my Kindle, so I'm pumped to be reading ALL. THE. TIME. I'll add yours to my list!

Constant state of hyperbole. You are brilliant (not a hyperbole). I must read this ASAP!

Thanks for the review!! It's on my to-read list, but I hadn't yet actually heard from anyone who has read it. Can't wait!

I first heard about this book from Matt at work, and he loved it! It's definitely on my to-read list as well. :)

This. Book. Killed. Me. John Green is so great. Read An Abundance of Katherines and Looking for Alaska.
