the fault in our stars

The Fault in Our StarsThe Fault in Our Stars by John Green
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

it seems like everyone loves this book and it has been spoken of aside my fav young adult book of last year "eleanor and park," so i had to read it. i have to say it's not your typical kid with cancer book and i should know. i used to read quite a few of them as a child. what can i say? i had a weird thing about books about terminal illness. anyhow, it was enjoyable and a fast read. a bit predictable but not your nicholas sparks kinda predictable. it seems as though the big c has enter quite a few of friends lives and this little story was a very small window into what they might be dealing with.

also finally met ms. molly and her new home

nylon back in action

back in the uk and lovely to have someone pick me up from the airport. as you ought, first stop after a red eye - brewery tour. 

gorgeous hake, bouillabaisse, mussels from raphael's 
at the good shed, a converted old rail station
farewell to kent and off to london town, where the only tourist thing i was able to manage was to get to the tower of london for the tower poppies. until november 11, volunteers will be planting ceramic poppies outside the tower of london's moat area to remember the lives lost in world world one a hundred years ago.
