Words Wednesday: The Fault in Our Stars Edition [29]


A chance for me to highlight some of my favorite book quotes! This week it's all about The Fault in Our Stars by John Green because I just can't stress how much I LOVE THIS BOOK. So here are all of my favorite quotes from TFioS! Well, not all my favorite quotes since some of them are spoilery. :P But have no fear the ones I chose are spoil free! So below you have all my (spoil free) favorite quotes from The Fault in Our Stars.

"Why are you looking at me like that?"

Augustus half smiled. "Because you're beautiful. I enjoy looking at beautiful people, and I decided a while ago not to deny myself the simpler pleasures of existence."

As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.

That's the thing about pain... it demands to be felt.

My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations

What a slut time is. She screws everybody.

“I'm in love with you," he said quietly.

"Augustus," I said.

"I am," he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. "I'm in love with you, and I'm not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you.”

Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.

Hint: That last quote? Yeah that was aimed at you guys. Namely: THE FUTURE OF THE WORLD DEPENDS ON YOU READING THIS BOOK!

Oh and could some awesome guy come along and use that love speech on me please? If a guy did, I would probably marry him on the spot. And yes, I do realize that the speech is epically cheesy and way overdramatic but coming out of a teen guys mouth it would probably be rendered irresistibly adorable. >.<

Anyway if I haven't convinced you by now that this book is a masterpiece and you need to read it then go check out my review. If I have convinced you add this sucker to your shelf on Goodreads here.

  1. Ahhh this literally made me melt when I read the book “I'm in love with you," he said quietly. That's my favourite quote from the book, it's so simple but heart wrenching at the same time!

  3. This is one of my all time favorite books! I loved the quotes you chose! The one about falling in love like how you fall asleep is one of the ones I adore from the book and just how Augustus is never 'denying himself the simple pleasures' of saying what's on his mind. Great post, thanks Julia! :)
