"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Waiting on Wednesday: John Green Week Edition

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we seriously can’t wait for.

 Here's my pick for the week, that I seriously can't wait for:

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.
There is SEVEN days (counting today) until The Fault in Our Stars comes out!!!  I've had mine on pre-order for quite a while, and I can't wait until I get to read it. I got to read the first two chapters, and they are just as good as all of John's other books, if not better.

The exciting thing is that you can still pre-order the book!  I know that John was super generous and signed each copy of the first printing, so if you go pre-order now you may get a signed book (some of them are even embellished with Hankler fishes and Yetis, which would be so sweet to get).  I, for one, cannot wait.  Best thing about it, it's like a birthday present to me!!  Huzzah!

Go help support such an amazing author as John Green.  And in the words of our esteemed writer: DFTBA!

Pre-order: Amazon, B&N, Book Depository, Books-A-Million, or at an indie bookstore
