After finishing Son this week I needed something to read next. I must have gone temporarily insane for the last few months - I had completely forgotten the beauty that is a library hold. Once I came to my senses, I put five books on hold and one became available immediately. Seeing your name wrapped with around a book with a rubber band, saved just for you, makes it seem like a special gift.
Yesterday the library picked out a special gift, just for me. It's exactly what I wanted: The Fault in Our Stars
by John Green.
Markus Zusak, author of one of my favorite books of all time, The Book Thief, says this about it, “A novel of life and death and the people caught in between, The Fault in Our Stars is John Green at his best. You laugh, you cry, and then you come back for more.” It gets five stars reviews from just about every reviewer on Amazon. Many call it the best book they've read in years. That's a lot of hype.
Guess who's excited?
