John Green inspired phone covers for iPhone 5/5s available in my etsy store.
Also available on my Society6 page if you prefer them….
I just watched all the episodes so far, and I did really really enjoy it.
That being said, I completely see where you’re coming from. I think the realism of it all was definitely an afterthought, and I can see why people would be offended, particularly people who are suffering from the same illnesses. You do forget most of the time that these kids are really sick and it has been sugarcoated A LOT. Thank you for mentioning the Washington Post article, it’s a very interesting read!
My dissertation Creative Writing piece is actually a similar concept to the show, so this really intrigued me. I won’t be taking any of the medical tips from the show, needless to say, but just getting the essence of the day to day within a hospital is what I’ve been looking for for a while, so, yeah.
So I saw an advert for Red Band Society on the TFiOS DVD yesterday and holy crap it looks SO GOOD.
Has anyone watched it? I’m curious as to whether it is actually any good? I have a really strange fascination with books and films set in hospitals or about sick kids/teens, so this looks amazingly perfect.
So yeah…should I watch?
So I got super annoyed earlier when I realised the deleted scenes for The Fault in Our Stars were only available on the Blu-Ray editions.
I MEAN - HOW UNFAIR. I DON’T WANT A BLU RAY PLAYER. I JUST WANT TO PLAY IT ON MY LAPTOP AND EAT GUMMY BEARS.
Anyway, I was initially REALLY excited about seeing the scene where John apologises for creating Hazel and Augustus because that was the only deleted scene I hadn’t seen floating about the internet…
Until I went on Youtube!
Still annoyed about the fact that there’s quite a bit on the Blu Ray edition which isn’t on the DVD version.

Was planning on doing something semi productive tonight….and then i realised there’s audio commentary from John and Josh on the TFioS movie.
I AM OBSESSED WITH AUDIO COMMENTARIES.
Getting sorted for Uni next week and thought I’d jazz my bag up.
One side done, need to make some more designs for the back.
(I haven’t touched the bag in almost 3 years, hence why it’s so dirty….)
So my tutor finally replied to my begging emails and I’m allowed to take this “Writing Young Adult Fiction” class that I’ve been whining about for the past 2 weeks!!
I’m so so so so so excited!
I get away with not having to do all the reading and not having to do any of the assignments. I just get to sit in a class and talk about YA Fiction - THAT IS PRETTY MUCH HEAVEN TBH.
Honest Trailers | The Fault in Our Stars
Oh God, this is so amazing.
Today I donated about 20 books and only bought 1. That, my friends, is what they call progress!!
I’m quite excited to read this judging by the first page.
Things I’m super freakin’ stressed about right now:
