So Excited!

Have you ever been so excited to read a book that you can't wait to get your hands on it?  I mean the "you need it now" kind of excited.  That happened to me a few days ago.  I was with some of my friends eating lunch when we began talking about books (because nearly all of my friends are die hard readers).  Both of my friends had read A Fault in Our Stars by John Green and loved it.

Now I wasn't sure how I was going to like it.  I attempted to start Looking for Alaska last year and failed miserably. I don't know what is was but I just couldn't get into it and so to this day it continues to gather dust on my bookshelf.  Hopefully one day I will give it another chance. Needless to say, I was skeptical but willing to give A Fault in Our Stars a chance.  (Plus have you seen the trailer for the movie? It looks really good and I can't watch something without reading it first or I will seriously never read it. Ever.)

This brings us to last Thursday.  I had finished class and decided to fire up Amazon and take a look at this book my friends were raving about over lunch.  It probably took me two paragraphs and I was hooked. I knew I needed the book!  I read the first eight pages and the main characters voice is just so great. The writing is crisp and sarcastic with a little bit of cynicism.  Perfection, I guess, if your going by my mind.

Hopefully the book will be here by tomorrow or the day after because I might be wrong but I feel like this is going to be a two day kind of book.  Two days and done.  Hopefully my classes won't be too taxing this week.  Either way I think reading is a much better way to procrastinate than checking your email five times an hour or looking at the same silly Facebook statuses.

Anyway I can't wait for it to get here so I can crack open it's fresh new pages.

Oh and here is a look at the trailer for the movie if you haven't seen it already.  The actress playing Hazel is also in the movie adaptation of Divergent, which comes out in March!  I'm extremely excited for that too.
