Books I love: The fault in our stars.

I love books that make me cry. And books that make me cry in an airplane?! BIG LOVE!

I have read about The Fault in Our Stars // Das Schicksal ist ein mieser Verräter in several blog posts and after a while I bought it. It only took me 2 days to read it and while I was flying back home from spain I finished it.

This is one of those books that leave a deep mark on your mind. You know, when you wish you’d knew what happened after the last few words.

The story?

16 years old Hazel has lung cancer. She is in a bad condition. And with a grim sense of humor she bears all the little and huge problems this gives her. But then she meets Augustus who lost a leg to cancer. And he makes her feel „normal“ for the first time in years. And even though she is afraid she might hurt him if she allows herself to fall in love with him, she falls in love with him from the very first moment. And then destiny is an asshole.

As usual I don’t want to share the details. You should rather read their story yourself.

But let me tell you: It end in a different way than I expected. I like that about books. Also I love how John Green is never melodramatic, never crosses the fine line between story telling and begging for empathy.

„The Fault in Our Stars“ is a very honest book. And those are rare to find these days.


Yes, this might not be a very deep review of this book but only because I want to tell you you should read it yourself to make it „your story“. It has touched me in so many ways and it will be one of those books I will always recommend to friends. Always 🙂
