The Fault in Our Stars - John Green I didn't think I was going to enjoy this at first. It was too quippy and Hazel and Augustus seemed too pulled out of "Juno" for me to like it (a problem I have with a lot of tv and movies lately... Books, less so, but sometimes). That went away after about 60 pages. They were still just as smart and clever as they'd been, it just didn't bother me as much anymore. There was so much else going on that I was able to get past the dialogue (something I can't always, so this was good). The story was so sweet and sad and heartfelt and I cried. It's not the best book I've ever read, but it was very good and definitely makes me think about some things differently.
