Today, I decided to write a more informal post, something that I rarely, if ever, do on this site. But I am writing this post for a reason: because I truly enjoy connecting with other readers and seeing, not only what they're reading now, but what they're thinking about it. After finishing The Host, (for the second time. Sorry, to all the non-Meyer fans, but I LOVE it.) it took me a while to pick out a book that I was interested in. So, I went on my Kindle and started browsing through the titles, and low and behold, John Greene's The Fault In Our Stars was staring back at me, and I knew that was the one.
I was right.
After only an hour or so of reading--I lost track of time--I was more than hooked by the voice and style of his writing. And, of course, his story line. I'm already in awe of Hazel's strength and courage and love that she sounds and acts so much like a teenager, and I'm already smitten with Augustus, just as Hazel is. This will probably be my choice for next week's Hollywood Dream Cast, because I know that when I finish the book, I'll be in love with the characters and want to choose faces for them. Things cannot possibly end well for Hazel, I know that, and when they don't, I'll be crying like a baby.
Now that I've shared a little bit about what I'm reading with you, please join in! What are you reading right now? And, more importantly, what are your thoughts on it? After all, what is a book worth if it doesn't make you feel something?
