Hello book royalists!

I am a bit overdue here XD but oh well… aren’t we all a bit behind? I think that is the regular speech that I have given in my last reviews, but I want so bad to spend all my time reading and drinking coffee… I am doing that right now… don’t judge me, please!

I got this book a long time ago, but never got to read it! Then I met the other king of this kingdom… and didn’t read it by his request until now! I am terrible at this haha. He did review the book before: Is it really the fault in our stars? Show him some support! Now, to what I thought about the book!


After some tumultuous days and weeks reading this book, I can say that I was moved deeply and really enjoyed this story, but I don’t see myself crying cold tears of sorrow. I understand though why some people loved this book and hate the rest… XD

If you follow us on Goodreads, and I hope you do!, I ramble a lot… but like a lot with this story! Like every time I had to put it down I had to express what I was feeling about it!

Now, I think it is quite a good book and Hazel and Gus interactions are simply dreamy! They are both smart and … sophisticated? I think that is why people like it so much and find it also too hyped? Those fantastic moments we all want to live! Don’t we all want to speak like that and have those memorable moments?

Don’t lie… you do!

I must confess that several times I sighed deeply and had to put down the book as I knew what was going to happen. It is a poignant and powerful novel of young adult love that crosses the line to the unbelievable that we all wished to be real (for the good parts mainly… although without the bad parts this might have not been as good though…). Even though Gus’s and Hazel’s speech seem too “fancy” and their personalities were greatly crafted by the author, I saw myself trembling by their romance, their life, and tragedy. Who doesn’t want to have those adventures? Love as they loved? And be as witty as they were?

 

I can’t right now… he is in pain, he has being paining (?) Before they left T_T He wanted this as his grand and heroic finally! Damn you! I will close this, try not to start thinking and suffering right now… Damn this book and it’s amazing and highly likable and improbable characters!

A simply marvelous story with a blast of an ending that deserves its merits. Might not be my forever favorite book, as the hype and all the talk might have biased me and my expectations, but still, a must read for those who like a well written and modern tragedy.


So, the kingdom has given this book:

4 coronas

It seems that your majesty is pleased and the knights have spoken!
