The Fault in Our Stars

           The Fault in Ours by John Green is the kind of book that you can’t put down. You keep telling yourself “one more chapter, just one more chapter” and before you know it, you have finished the book.

Amy McEllen replied to Kyra Ammelounx's discussion Read the Book or See the Movie First?
"I always have to read the books first. In my experiences, the book is always better. Some people believe that by reading the book first, you will hate the movie but I find this to be untrue. I read every single Harry Potter…"

"I saw Ellen Hopkins at writers week and she made me want to go down there and buy her books. All of her books sound so good because they are based off of realistic events instead of boiling down to "happily ever after" endings. I remember…"

"My teacher, Mrs. Pine, kept suggesting to my class to read this book and so one day I decided to start reading it. It was amazing! I had previously read the Hunger Games and Divergent has a very Hunger Games feel to it. Although Hunger Games was…"
