The best book I’ve read recently is The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I was a little hesitant going into the novel because the story deals with teenagers coping with cancer. However, I think John Green’s writing is compelling and a little snarky, which is perfect for me. If you don’t laugh out loud at least a few times during this novel, you’re reading it wrong. I will confess that Isaac turned out to be my favorite character.
Have you read any of these novels? What’s the best book you’ve recently read and why did you love it?
