Book Review: The Fault In Our Stars

The Fault in Our StarsThe Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Read from September 28 to October 14, 2013
5 of 5 stars

Synopsis: The Fault in Our Stars is the story of Hazel Grace,a 17 year old who was diagnosed with thyroid cancer at 12, and has come to terms with her diagnosis. She is ready to die. A miracle trial pill has stalled her inevitable death, but for how long? Hazel joining a Cancer Support Group, where she meets Augustus, who is in remission after having lost his leg to osteosarcoma fourteen months prior. Even though Hazel makes it her policy not to get too close to people for fear of hurting them when she dies, she can’t help but to start falling for Augustus.
I fell in love with this book almost instantly.
Gus & Hazel don’t have the typical “fall in love” story that everyone seems to have, they simply just fell into each other.Their story is about finding that in a bleak world there can be light, and that light may not shine forever, but it can shine beautifully & bright while it’s here.
When I finished the book I wanted to cry, but more importantly I walked away feeling that the authour hit the heart of the story. That, much like death, life and love are not something you can control. And that hurt is not something you can avoid, but that you will be okay.

Book Review: A Clash Of Kings

So I finally finished reading A Clash Of Kings. It seemed to have taken me forever, mostly because I was so busy during the summer, but I finally finished it last night, and I’m completely excited! More so than I should be LOL

I want to start the third book, but I feel like I need a GOT break. I have so many feelings for many of the characters (even the ones I shouldn’t)
So instead I’ve started reading “The Fault In Our Stars” (which I know is going to wreck havoc on my feelings too lol but I’ve heard such great things about it, I can’t help but want to check it out!)

Below is my review from Goodreads:

A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire, #2)A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Yet again Martin has me biting my nails as I read this book.Throughout the book I fall in love & in hate with many characters, on all sides of the war. So much so I’m never sure who I want to win the war.

Unlike A Game Of Thrones, this book was not slow to start. It was action, and anticipation from start to finish. Where Martin sometimes gives us sorrow, he gives us hope, but the opposite is true. He has a way of making you hopeful, and then ripping it away from you with a sentence or two. Just like the other books in the series, this book is always keeping you on your toes with it’s many twists and unexpected turns, right up until the end.

Review: A Game of Thrones

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I did the biggest “No No” in the bookworm world, I started watching the series on TV before reading the book. I fell in love with it & then discovered it was a whole book series, and went and picked up the book series (that was out at that point, to date, which was the first four)
and I have to say, not only am I impressed with the book, but for once I am actually pretty impressed with a tv series made from a book.

The book itself was slow to start, like most are, but soon enough was hard to put down. I found myself falling in love with characters, and crying over them. They had a very human quality to them, something that many books often lack.
The story line is full of twists that you don’t expect,and kept me on my toes, even though I knew from the tv series the general idea of what was coming next.

This book seems huge, but once you dive in it doesn’t seem so endless, so don’t let that be the reason you don’t pick it up.
If you like the fantasy genre, you should definitely check out this book.
