Over the past weekend I went to my local used bookstore. While I was there I happened to come across ‘A Night Without Armor’ by: Jewel Kilcher. I liked the hardback without the hardcover and decided to pick it up after reading a brief part of one of the poems that was in it. Once I got home that night and then Sunday night, I kept reading the poems over and over.
A few of my favorite poem in this book is Lost. As it progresses from ‘Lost’ to ‘Grace’ it just makes sense in the cycle of being lost. I can relate to this poem and it is just an awesome poem. More of my favorites are; ‘We Have Been Called’, ‘I’m Writing to Tell’, and ‘I Keep Expecting You To’.
I personally liked this book of poems and found it very enjoyable. I recommend this book to anyone who likes poetry.

Today was the day I finally finished John Green’s book, The Fault in Our Stars. I’m normally the girl who doesn’t cry over books, but this one really got me to let out all the tears. The relationship that grows between Hazel and Augustus (Gus) is phenomenal and beautifully written. And it made me think about my own relationship and how I would survive if I was Hazel. This book has also helped me understand a bit more about life in a way.

Some of my favorite quotes in the book were “The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars / But in ourselves.” (page 111), “Oh, I wouldn’t mind, Hazel Grace. It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by you.” (page 176), and “Nothing gold can stay.” (page 278).

I rated this book 5/5 stars on goodreads.com. I recommend this book to everyone and anyone. It has made the list of the top books I have ever read. I think while reading this you can feel the greatness and power of John Green and his impact on literature and life.

Oh my goodness. I’m reading The Fault in Our Stars by: John Green. I am in love with this book. Amazing characters, amazing setting, and overall everything is brilliantly amazing. This book has me in awe, and I’m only around the first hundred pages into this book. This book has made me almost tear up already, and I can’t wait to read the rest!
