  1. That is a lovely quote. I downloaded the book the other day. Looking forward to reading it soon. 🙂

    1. I feel less sadistic after hearing such a prolific writer say that 😉 Not that I set out to make my readers cry, but I think that’s one of every writer’s bucket list goals, ya know?

      I hope you enjoy the book! Personally, The Fault in Our Stars made me both laugh out loud and cry several times. I would gladly read it again.

      1. I’ll let you know how I get on. 🙂

  2. The movie follows the book … Tami recommended!!
