BBAW Day 4: Pimp That Book

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!!

p.s DFTBA.


  1. I haven't yet read this one, but I do want to. I've actually only read one John Green book so far, and it made me want to read everything by him.

    1. What other JB have you read? This is one of his best. Without a doubt, so it will be interesting to see how you compare the two books.
      Please let me know what you think!! Would love to hear your opinion.

      Happy Reading!!

  3. Everyone keeps saying this is a great book. I haven't had a chance to read it (or any other John Green books) yet. I should probably change that.

    1. Oh John Green is a great author! His characterisation is second to none, and he has a way of relating to his teenage audience which is truly amazing and resonant.
      If I had to recommend another JG book other than TFIOS, it would have to be Looking For Alaska.
      Hope you get a chance to read one of them soon!

      Happy Reading!

  4. Great choice! I finally got my hands on a copy of this one, but haven't read it yet. Hey, one step at a time, right? ;)

    1. I am still amazed when I find people that still haven't read it. ahaha. I guess this post was a good idea then??!?!
      I would love to hear your views on it when you get round to finishing it.
      Really hope you enjoy it, because I got so much pleasure from it

      Happy Reading

  5. I only just listened to this on audio. I always feel as though I'm way behind in my reading. Too much reading of blogs this week!
