Waiting on Wednesday: The Fault in Our Stars

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine to "spotlight upcoming releases".

The Fault in Our Stars - John Green
Publisher - Dutton Junveile (imprint of Penguin)
Publication Date - January 10th, 2012

From Goodreads: 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.

Ok, so this has pretty much been my most eagerly anticipated new book for the last couple of months (since the title was announced) and I wanted to wait until the cover was released before featuring it on here. Oh my goodness: a) does it not sound amazingly good and b) are you as excited as I am?!?! If you have read more blog for more than a month, you will probably have figured out I'm quite a John Green fangirl, so this new book will be heavily featured on here come January.

A few other nifty things:
♥ John Green is signing every single copy of the first print run, so go pre-order your copy already!
♥ Go watch John read the first chapter
♥ Read John's tumblr for a daily dose of all things awesome

What upcoming releases are you eagerly anticipating?

It's sad when you can't cry when a character in a book dies!!! Unless of course the book is so short you cant become attached to the characters enough to cry when one dies! This is the first of Green's novels I've read and I'm sad to say it will probally be the last!!!
