The Fault In Our Stars - Time Magazine's no.1 book of 2012 - Do you agree?

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green has been rated as the best book of 2012. Have you read it? Do you agree? It sits on my favourites shelf - but I haven't read too many books this year. I'm a big fan of young adult fiction myself so its nice to see a book of that section of the library recieving such praise. I think I probably would list it as top of the year for me- although I also really enjoyed Cinder by Marissa Meyer this year. Not quite up there with my 3 favourites of last year - The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, Never Let Me Go by Kazio Ishiguru(sp?) and The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. None of them were actually released in 2011 though, I just happened to get around to reading them finally!

I love John Green's book especially Looking for Alaska! That is his best book for me so far. I have downloaded The Fault In Our Stars but I haven't come around to reading it yet. Hopefully before the year ends, I could. The other books that you mentioned are also good. I love The Hunger Games!

Dou you know that the title comes for the shakespearea quote: "The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, But in ourselves" from Julius Cesare? Spoiler here: I cried. I really cried while reading it. haha! anyways this is a truffle treat kind of book. it punches you to the gut that made you feeling hollow. the book is really about miracle. not miracle as in miraculously finding cure to uncurable. haha Hazel-the heroine-viewed it as something simple as having to spend life as lng as she has after having diagnose with incurable disease. its something as simple as having a cup of coffee sitting in your fave coffee shop and having a great day. its really hard to explain unless you read it yourself. maybe you'll interpret it differently than mine. try ittttttt! haha
