FRIDAY FINDS showcases the books you ‘found’ and added to your To Be Read (TBR) list… whether you found them online, or in a bookstore, or in the library — wherever! (they aren’t necessarily books you purchased).
So, come on — share with us your FRIDAY FINDS!
My daughter Rachelle came home from school today gushing about this book that she is reading. She tells me that I need to read it because it is so moving and emotional and it makes her cry. Any book that had that effect on my 15 year old daughter has to be worth reading. Therefore this is my Friday finds for this week:
The Fault in our Stars by John Green
Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too; post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time (whatever that means), Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumours tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault.
Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind. (Goodreads excerpt)
I will post a review of this book after I read it. I need to wrestle it from my daughter first!
