Top Ten Books That Many People Don’t Read But Are Really Good

1. The Apothecary by Maile Meloy

2. His Dark Materials series by Philip Pullman

3. Sisters Grimm series by Michael Buckley

10. The Secret Language of Girls by Frances O’Roark Dowell

A lot of these books are MG (3, 4, 6, 7, 9, 10), which may put older readers off, but they’re actually really good! [I could’ve added pictures, but I was too lazy; sorry.]

It. Was. So. Good. I cried a bit… Anyway, the real review.

Title: The Fault in Our Stars

Main Characters/Actors: Hazel/Shailene Woodley, Augustus/Ansel Elgort

Synopsis: Hazel is a teen with cancer. Her mother forces her to go to Support Group, where she meets Augustus Waters. They form a relationship made on An Imperial Affliction, Hazel’s favorite book, late-night phone calls, and Gus’s love. They have adventures, from a Dutch picnic to Amsterdam to meet Peter Van Houten, who wrote An Imperial Affliction. Then a sudden change in Augustus’s health changes things for the worse. Read the book/watch the movie to find out what happens!

Rating: 4.5/5 stars

Dislikes: They took out scenes! And changed the famous egg line. WHY???
