Wow. Okay. This book. ... My twitter feed has been overflowing with nothing but love and admiration and retweeted quotes from the book for the past several months.
"Who is this Augustus Waters???" I would think.
The name sounded fake - perhaps silly - and definitely not drawing me to read this book about faulted stars.
I just assumed the book was a bash on astronomy or something. I'm actually not too sure. But I was certain the 313 pages were not for me. It would never be.
Until I gathered enough small info (thanks to a twitter post) that it involved a love story.
:: hmm. takes a second look. ::
"Huh, alright... Maybe this isn't about stars after all? Or maybe it is; just some lovebirds both crazy about constellations.."
I genuinely gave it zero more thought. But you may have already figured that out.
Nonetheless, I did think about how odd it was that my friends were beginning to become obsessed with this stars story.
Like, what could seriously be so great about it???
Then. I saw the trailer on a commercial.
And I was.sucked.into.the.screen.instantaneously.
Maybe a tad exaggerated - but I didn't want any distractions while watching it. My eyes and my ears were glued.
I wanted it on repeat or something.
"Okay - well ... when finals are over - I am gonna try out this book, EVEN THOUGH I WILL BE JUST LIKE ALL THE OTHER GIRLS ON MY TWITTER FEED. Laughs."
And let me just tell you this. I started the book YESTERDAY.
And can I just be Brooklyn Waters or Brooklyn Augustus Waters or that kind of thing for a day? Because I am in love with a boy in a book, and I AM SO GLAD I HAVE 313 PAGES TO READ ABOUT HIM.
You could say there has been a complete change of emotions towards the book, and I could just kiss the author, John Green, for writing and publishing such a stinking. darn. good. lovable. story.
Seriously. I am already dreaaaaaaading the last page. I'm on page 199 right now. AND I JUST WANT TO TELL EVERYONE WHO WAS SKEPTICAL LIKE ME TO FORGET WHAT YOU THINK. GO TO THE STORE. BUY THE BOOK. READ IT. LOVE IT. WATCH THE MOVIE. READ THE BOOK AGAIN. AND COMMENT BELOW HOW MUCH YOU LOOOOOOOOOOOVED IT.
That is all.
Enjoy the fault in our stars,
ps. the only person at fault, is the person who thinks this book will be a waste of their time.
and i already want the fault in our stars 2. so, john green, don't quit writing ever.
Sayanara, Blogging Buddies!
and just for this first and final time -
Brooklyn DeShea Augustus Waters
