I'm not exactly sure how to start this detailed telling of my life-so-far, so I'll describe the place I was born.
Carpinteria, California. Some may know of it, most may not. Carp is a small town about 15 minutes towards the coast from Santa Barbra. It's a small town, but bigger than the place I live now. This little hippie town is right on the beach. I remember growing up, seeing sand on all the main roads during March and April when it would get windy.

I never was the kind of guy that read much,id rather play a videogame, watch TV or play rugby, but one day, as I was touring UK I saw the fault in our stars in a bookshelf and, being a nerd fighter, i felt I had to buy it.I had never read any book that wasn't imposed to me by my school, and this book reading thing was all new to me, but I decided to give your's a shot.

Yesterday I started reading the fault in our stars, so naturally I finished it today.
I never really wrote like a book review, except for Dutch class (a bit like English in the US, only in Dutch, if that makes sense :S}, so I am so sorry if it isn't like good or anything. Tips and advice are always welcome ;D.
DISCLAIMER: SPOILER ALERT!

I'd like to say first of all, if this blog doesn't make any sense, I am sorry. I have been up all night because I work thirds and sometimes my southern accent can seep through my writing skills.
A few months ago I watched a Vlogbrother video, of course, and I saw where John had given us the amazing option of pre-ordering The Fault in Our Stars and, in doing so, we will get a signed copy of said book. I have read most of his work and thought this was an amazing thing, so I…Continue

So, I finished reading TFIOS about half an hour ago, and have been trying to figure out a way to express my akdjfaeifhadhfs without spoiling anything. So here I go.
It's amazing. Spectacular. Nothing short of absolutely beautiful.
[sidenote: my j-scribble is green, when I opened the book for the first time I actually sat and stared at the signature for a few minutes, kind of in awe, I guess because John Green's hand actually wrote on this exact piece of…Continue
