March 2012 Read of the Month

I have selected my Read of the Month for March 2012, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.  Since I read Looking for Alaska last April I have wanted to read other books by John Green.  I really enjoy his work and writing style.  I was turned onto his work by a number of students at Carlson High School.  Many of the readers at Carlson enjoy John Green's books.

March 2012 Read of the Month
This novel is told by cancer survivor Hazel, a teenager fighting for her life.  I have just started reading this week and I can tell I am going to love the book.  It appears the novel is going to focus on the relationship between Hazel and fellow cancer survivor Augustus Waters.  It is hard for me to put into words, but I really love they way Mr. Green tells a story.  Some authors just have the ability to make reading a book so exciting and enjoyable.  Just like in Looking for Alaska, once I stared The Fault in Our Stars I did not want to put the book down.  I will probably have the book finished within the week.  I am only hesitant about the book because it deals with children and cancer.  As a parent, the subject scares me to death, but I will still finish the book.   Have you selected a book for March is Reading Month?  Happy Reading!

  1. When you pick up a book about kids with cancer you have to expect it will be a tough read. This is definitely true with this book. It kept me thinking for weeks about what you want to be remembered for, if anything. Very interesting. My only problem is that I think the reading level it was written at is very high which limits its audience. I think adults might enjoy it more than teens.

    1. So far I love it, but I fear turning each page. I worry about what may come next
