The Fault In Our Stars by John Green (31)

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.

Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

REVIEW:
Tissues, please!!
What an incredible story!
Augustus is an admirable young man, that I am still at a loss over.  I feel deeply crushed, and can only imagine how Hazel feels. 
Cancer.
It hits every family, somehow. Sad to think, but even sadder when they don't get to live a long full life like the rest of us. As a parent, the idea of a child dying before them is crushing. But it happens. Not just in story.
This story felt so real. I have to wonder if the author was greatly affected by something like this. It was just so raw at times.
I can't wait to watch the movie. I know how much I bawled through the book so I will definitely be prepared... still, I'm anxious to see if the film lives up to the book, which I liked a lot.
A great start to reading John Green's books. I don't plan on stopping here.

    1. The book has elements that the movie doesn't. I liked it just a little better. (My movie review is coming soon.)

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic.

Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
