Day 4 has been pretty hard for me. We have been asked to think of a book, books or authors that you feel need to be recognised more for their awesomeness. Also known as "pimp that book".
Most of the books I have read have been due to recommendations from others, so they obviously have the recognition in the first place. To get over my reader's block I have decided to interpret the topic today, and chose a book that, although it could be well known, I feel needs to be in the head's of every book reader out there.
That book is.
The Fault In Our Stars by John Green.
Yes, so most of you have probably read it or heard about it, but my god I bet you are happy that you have. This book made me feel emotions that I have never felt before when reading a book.
It made me laugh and by god it made me cry. Hard.
John Green has a way of getting into the mind set of a 17 year old cancer sufferer that is almost disturbing. It's thought provoking, uplifting and romantic. You almost forget the story is basically about cancer and dying, and it's so believable too. It's not dramatic or tear out your hair emotional, it's real.
I mention this book to anyone I come across with a reading passion. The few people I know that has read the book can only praise it, and I encourage anyone who hasn't read any of John Green's work to read this as a starter.
It will change your life.
What book do you "pimp out" to your friends?
Happy Reading and BBAW!!
