July 2014 (1): Fault in our stars

Heyyyy Everyone, 


I can never read a book after I've seen the film, it just doesn't feel right for me because I like to use my imagination and create the characters in my head, but if I've seen the film I just see the actors/actresses and it's less fun! That's why I wanted to read this book quickly because everyone is raving about the film so I thought I'd have a quick read before I watch it! 

It was a really nice book about a young girl suffering from cancer and finding love! It was a well written story and kept me hooked.. However, it wasn't as amazing as I'd expected! I think the problem sometimes is that all the reviews, and the fact it's been made into a movie, make expectations high and it didn't quite reach mine. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed it and I would recommend it but I wouldn't put it down as one of the most amazing books I've read! 

Warning- It is a tear jerker! I read part of this book sat on a bench on a busy street in Hong Kong whilst waiting for my mum to join me for lunch and I probably read the saddest part and ended up crying on the street! God knows what people were thinking of me! 

Next I'll be reading 'Apple Tree Yard', by Louise Doughty, a book recommended to me by my mum. I have absolutely no idea what's it about and I'm not even going to read the synopsis, I'm just going to read and see, I trust my mums recommendations! Keep a look out for my review in a few weeks to see what I thought! 

Ciao EmmaJessica <3
