Mr. Van Houten:

I’m a good person but a shitty writer. You’re a shitty person but a good writer. I think we’d make a good team. I don’t want to ask you for any favors but if you have the time—from what I saw you have plenty— Please fix this for me. It’s a eulogy for Hazel…. she asked me to write it and I’m trying, it just could use a little flare.

See the thing is we all want to be remembered but Haze’s different. Hazel knows the truth. She didn’t want a million admirers she just wanted one. And she got it. Maybe she wasn’t loved widely but she was loved deeply, and isn’t that more than what most of us get? When Hazel was sick I knew I was dying but I didn’t want to say so. She was in the ICU and I snuck in for ten mins and sat with her before I got caught. Her eyes were closed, her skin pale, but her hands were still her hands. Still warm, and her nails were painted this dark blue black color, I just held them. I willed myself to imagine a world without us and what a worthless world that would be.

She’s so beautiful. You don’t get tired of looking at her. You never worry if she’s smarter than you because you know she is. She’s funny without ever being mean. I love her, God I love her. I’m so lucky to love he, Van Houten.

You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world but you have a say in who hurts you. I like my choice and I hope she likes hers. Okay Hazel Grace?

Anonymous said: Why do you like to read ya books so much if you're almost 30?


My life is full of responsibility. I am responsible for the food, clothing, and shelter of another person, as well as myself. I both work full time and go to school full time. If I don’t do the cleaning, the cooking, the laundry, or pay the bills, none of those things would get done. My life is full of adult responsibilities, and good lord I don’t want to read about them as well.

I love reading about people falling in love for the first time. I love reading about young people saving the world, because that is something that may just need to happen someday. I love reading about people whose problems are easily fixed with a kiss. Or whose only concern is homework, or trying to find where the cafeterias are from their dorm rooms. 

I don’t only read ya. I do read adult books as well. But sometimes I have so much on my plate already. That if one more heavy thing gets added I might break. I need something light to counteract that. Fantasy books, romance novels, and ya books make that burden a little lighter and easier to bear. It’s why I read. To get away from everything I have to do everyday. So no I don’t want to read books about marriages, mortgages, and work problems. With custody battles, court, or heavy issues. I read for enjoyment, and those are not things I enjoy in life or reading about.
