Waiting On Wednesday (The Fault in Our Stars)

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Every Wednesday participants choose a book that they are "waiting on" or hasn't been released yet. This week I'm waiting for some John Green:

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Publisher: Dutton Juvenile
Publication Date: January 10, 2012
Pages: 272
PreOrder It: Amazon
Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 12, Hazel was prepared to die until, at 14, a medical miracle shrunk the tumours in her lungs... for now.

Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time (whatever that means), Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumours tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault.

Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind. --Goodreads
 This one sounds definitely new.  John Green is always great so I can't miss this new one coming January.  Are you going to read it?  Not convinced yet?  John Green read the first chapter or so of the book on his Youtube channel.  Check it out.  It sounds so good, I can't wait until it releases. 

What are you waiting for, this fine Wednesday?
