The first poster (!!!) of The Fault In Our Stars is already tear–jerking.

  • 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
    Shailene Woodley as Hazel Grace

    Shailene Woodley as Hazel Grace

    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?
  • Ansel Elgort as Augustus

    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?
  • 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.

  1. My sister literally just bought it a few hours ago and I can’t wait to read it. But a part of me of course doesn’t want to…

  2. They are not an item in Divergent because Caleb is her brother. Divergent is awesome though! Two books down, need to buy the last one when the cover version I have the first two appears in Apollo or something.

    TFIOS is awesome but I actually liked Looking for Alaska a bit more… just a little.. Both are great though!

    • Oh. Okay. I’m really excited to read this trilogy, though, Roth’s blog is awesome. 😀 And funny, I had the exact opposite – Looking for Alaska was great, but not as great for me. :p

  3. Holy crap, can’t wait to see this. The book was devastating. I think we both know we’re setting ourselves up for a lot of tears.

  4. Eglort was okay in Carrie. Not special but okay.

    Woodley is tremendous in both The Descendants and The Spectacular Now. I’ll watch this for her. Hopefully it doesn’t disappoint.

    Sounds like I should also read the book?

    • You should definitely read the book, it’s a very easy read with great emotional impact. Let me know if you cried. 😉 I didn’t even know the actress’s name in The Descendants, but I remember really loving her. Moving The Spectacular Now up in my watch queue then. 😉

      • The Spectacular. Now is a very heartfelt and emotional coming of age tale centered on two believable protagonists portrayed exceedingly well by its lead actors. I liked I quite a bit, and probably remember it, scene for scene as well as I remember any 2013 list.

        And this book is on my list! I’ll see when I can get my hands on it.

  5. Shespeaksmovies just sent me this image and damn i know i need to read it before the movie come up.

  6. I’ve actually read the book a couple of times, and the feeling gets worst because you already know what’s going to happen next, so everything before that seems to have a special meaning. Really excited for this, and hope it doesn’t disappoint.

  7. Hi I’ve nominated you for the Sunshine Blog Award, to accept it and follow the rules go to http://mykindofmovie.wordpress.com/2013/12/19/sunshine-blog-award/

  8. For all eternity my heart sobs for The Fault In Our Stars. I’m looking forward to this adaptation – hope it’s heartbreaking and humorous. Casting with Woodley and Elgort are bound to set us in the right direction. 🙂

    • It can’t be easy to find the right balance, without the humor I adored so much in the novel becoming general pretemptious douchery, but I really hope they’ll make it work. 😛

  9. I might really just have to get over it and read this already, keep hearing amazing things about it!

  10. Love Woodley, hope she receives praise for this!

Tell me, tell me, TELL ME
