The Fault in Our Stars Movie!

Thursday night I attended an early screening of The Fault in Our Stars called The Night Before Our Stars. The movie was extraordinary. I saw it again the next night. Tonight, I'm going again. 
The film was excellent. It was very faithful to the novel. Some of the changes however included: no Kaitlyn, no Caroline, and a slightly tweaked ending. Even with these changes it was a great movie. Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, and Nat Wolff are amazing actors. The end, with Gus' death, was very emotional and left me in a puddle of tears.

The Fault in Our Stars

I am not afraid to say that, yes, I am a fan of The Fault in Our Stars. I happen to really enjoy that it's a love story that is not overly obnoxious. It's also a book that has cancer without being a cancer book. Well, I won't give anything away, but I'm not going to lie; Isaac is my favorite character and I can't wait to see him on the big screen this Thursday (eeeekk!!!) 10/10 stars!!!

Favorite Books

Here is my little puppy Koda! He's five months old and we believe a Chow Chow, Saint Bernard, Bulldog mix.


Here's my little chinchilla named London. She's a sassy chinnie!

Van Gogh

This is my baby boy, Van Gogh. He is four years old and is a rescue bunny adopted from Tranquility Trail Animal Sanctuary. Can you tell where his name comes from?


Hi, nice to meet you! My name is Jordyn and I am a fifteen year old student living in sunny Arizona. When I am not cultivating my cactus garden and roasting eggs on the sidewalk (kidding on both counts!), I'm either reading or doing something animal related. I am the proud guardian of a four year old rabbit named Van Gogh, a two year old chinchilla named London, and a rescue puppy named Koda. I love to read all genres of books from contemporary fiction to science and math related books. I hope you'll enjoy this blog :)
