- I read The Fault In Our Stars in a few hours, not putting it down for a second and wept a lot – and I don’t cry that easily.
- TFIOS is probably the saddest book I know, too.
- So maybe it makes sense that the fucking poster is almost crippling, too? One sick love story as a tagline… whose idea was that???
- Tumblr answered “probably John Green’s”, and well, I guess so.
- If you have no clue what I’m talking about, then TFIOS is a film opening in june 2014 and based on John Green’s immensely popular (and really fucking sad) YA novel by the same name. It’s
about two kids Hazel Grace and Augustus who fall in love but they both have cancer but they both are really intelligent and awesome and it’s fucking unfair.
- While starred by Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort and they look perfect for their roles. Woodley played Alex in The Descendants and is going to star in the Divergent film adaption, so I guess she’s going places. Elgort was in the 2013 Carrie as Tommy Ross (please tell me he was at least okay there?) and is also in Divergent, as Caleb. Are they an item there, too? Has anyone read Divergent?
The film is directed by Josh Boone, whose debut was Stuck in Love. I haven’t seen that one, but I remember Mettel Ray saying it was surprisingly good, so I’ll give that one a watch and hope it’ll make me a fan of Boone (especially since I see Lisey’s Story in his future works and ohmygod it’s one of my favourite Stephen King’s books.
- Anyway, get your tissues ready, if you’re planning to see TFIOS. Are you as excited (and/or terrified) as I am?
Sad day, man. I never really understood how sad the book is until now. Why did I make it so sad? Why have so many people read it?—

- Finally, I give up with this formatting because I’ve been doing this longer than I did the post and fuck you, WordPress. WYSIWYG my ass. But the TFIOS thing, mostly, still.
