Ok like I’ve never read The Fault In Our Stars but I see it every where on this site and I want to.
Is it any good??
Thursday afternoon at 4:50 EST, I’ll be part of a google+ hangout.
Also present will be THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES BARACK OBAMA.
I’ll be asking the President a couple questions (like for instance “OH MY GOD WHAT IS AIR?!”) and he’ll also answer some questions submitted by viewers. You can ask questions here and RSVP for the google+ livestream here.
and if so, would you recommend it?
I thought it was okay.
my question for you is what in the hell is wrong with you
oh wait you’re john green, I’ll just die now
That’s the thing about ham, it demands to be eaten.
My thoughts are hams I cannot fathom into sandwiches
I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of eating ham.
‘It’s a metaphor, see: You put the ham right between your teeth, but you don’t give it the power to be delicious.’
“And in that moment, I swear we are ham.”
Wait. Wrong book.
John Green, your sass is tangible.
It felt mushy.
If he sees this post it will be really awkward. Hopefully he’s too busy right now to be reading through posts he’s tagged in.
*I should stress that it was an accident. He was stage diving. I was trying to hold him up. Hands ended up places.
I remember you.
Time Magazine just named The Fault in Our Stars the best novel of 2012—ahead of (Booker Award winner) Bringing Up the Bones, ahead of J. K. Rowling and Zadie Smith and Junot Diaz.
Unbelievable. I am astonished and grateful and I have a strong desire to curse with joy, but I won’t, because this is tumblr, where no one uses foul language.
The Fault In Our Stars - John Green
This was my first watercolour piece! (As you can probably tell!) I really liked it, but working on it was a HUGE challenge as I’m so used to lazy scribbles and erasing. I’m quite happy with how it turned out! :D I recommend you read the book if you haven’t already, it is one of my favourites for sure. Here’s to John Green!
Watercolour on Paper, Photoshop Elements 8, and PaintTool SAI
Approx. 3-4 hours.

The entire west is getting the shaft! Also…most of the rest of the world. JOHN FIX!
This map reminds me that for many years my intention was to write 13 novels, each of which would be set in a difference state of the former confederacy. Looking for Alaska is primarily set in Alabama; Katherines in Tennessee; Paper Towns in Florida. (I didn’t think of Let It Snow or Will Grayson, Will Grayson as being MY books, really, although LIS is set in North Carolina.)
I had this whole idea of myself as a Southern novelist who was writing about this new suburban and deregionalized South that still constructed itself as distinct from the rest of the United States in all these superficial ways while failing to acknowledge that what had most made the South regionally distinct was institutionalized racism and secession, all of which, needless to say, HAD ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THE BOOKS I WAS ACTUALLY WRITING.
I eventually accepted this and set TFiOS in Indianapolis.
