Book Club Friday: The Fault in Our Stars

As mentioned earlier this week, I finally read The Fault in our Stars.  Or should I say, sobbed through it.  I anticipated it being sad and crying, so I was not that surprised about that fact.  As my cousins about what happened when we went to see The Notebook in the theatre.  Spoiler alert, I sobbed hysterically through most of it.  They almost moved to different seats in the theatre.  In my defense, I had been dumped about 5 days prior (literally, that is not an exagerration).  I think I was allowed to be hysterical.

Needless to say, I will not be seeing this movie in the theatre.  I'll wait until it's on Netflix so I can cry through it in peace.

Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten.

My thoughts:
I really liked this book - it was an quick read, but hit me a lot.  The plot was not what I expected and I enjoyed the twists.  And yes, as mentioned, I sobbed for about the last 1/3 of it.  Sometimes, you just need a good cry, right?
