Last week I finished reading “The Fault In Our Stars” by John Green. The plot is essentially the love story of two terminally ill teenagers. Sounds cheery, right? Actually, it was quite fantastic. I read it on my iPad on the elliptical primarily, and while I won’t deny a few grief-stricken moments of very watery eyes there in the gym (thank goodness it was late at night and I was alone), the book was an excellent read. The story is compelling and the narrator’s cheeky voice is enough to make cancer not so faux-paux. The reader falls in love with love again through the story and he or she certainly walks away with a greater appreciation for this thing we call life. I definitely recommend picking up a copy for some casual reading (and before the movie comes out in 2014!).
I am a senior in college who will be off in the wonderful world of finance come July. While my resume passions include scrupulously watching economic indicators and reading the Wall Street Journal, I could just as happily spend all day reading blogs and sharing my passion for food, fashion, and fun. I chew too much gum and probably write too many lists. I know I don't know everything just yet, but TheGarnetLetter is the beginning of my little thank you note to the wonderful world!
