Is there a John Green giveaway going on???
Why Yes! Yes there is!!!
My awesome friend, Andrea, has two extra copies of The Fault In Our Stars that have both been signed and Hanklerfished! Soooo, If you don't have a copy yet, or want one with a Hankfish on it, you should absolutely sign up!!! Just click on the image above and it will take you straight to her new blog, The Overstuffed Bookcase, where she is hosting the giveaway!
Andrea and I actually went to the book signing that was part of the Tour de Nerdfighting in Austin this weekend with our friend Tracy! Some of you guys know that 2012 did not start out as the best year for me, so I've kind of been down in the dumps lately, but this weekend was just what I needed to lift my spirits like nothing else ever could!!!
And I took home a copy of Why We Broke Up signed by Daniel Handler (aka Lemony Snicket) and Maira Kalman. I had no idea what this book was about, but the blurbs on the back were hysterical so I thought that it just has to be good. Plus, the art work on the inside looks amazing so I have very high hopes!
And then I turned to Tracy and said "If I find a David Levithan, I'll die!!!" Less then a minute later I was staring at several signed copies of all of David Levithan's novels and screaming my head off in excitement! I'm pretty sure my friends were trying to tell me to quiet down because I was embarrassing them but I was like "Hey, I warned you!"

And then we went to the book signing! John Green signed my copy of Looking For Alaska (on the very last page because I have a thing about last pages of novels) and Hank signed my copy of a new cd he released just for this tour! It was a magical evening! I will say though that I am a little disappointed that neither John, nor Hank, looked up at me and recognized me as the kindred spirit that I am so that we could go ahead and start are inevitable best-friendship! But hey, there will always be another tour and another book signing, I'll just have to wait!
At this point however, I'm not really sure what I could say about this book that you haven't already heard. So, I'm just going to try the best I can.
This book is about kids, who are struggling with understanding the meaning of life and the concept of death, one kid trying their best to leave this world causing as minimal amount of pain to those that love them, the other doing everything they can to find a way to make a difference and leave a memory behind. The characters are completely honest and genuine and one hundred percent charming!
In case you need yet another reason to read this book, I'll give you this: It was written by JOHN GREEN! What more of a reason do you need? Seriously?

And I for one can't wait to read John Green again, because every time I read his books I get to go back on vacation to that world!
I know you might be thinking that all of what I just said is a tad on the cheesy side. And you are right, it is. I know it is. But I can't help it. It's the truth.
The Fault In Our Stars gets an abduction rating of...
