About a week ago, I received my @projectforawesome mystery perk and you cannot even imagine my surprise when I opened the package to find a prop copy of An Imperial Affliction!!! For those of you who don’t know, The Fault in Our Stars is my favorite book, so receiving Hazel’s favorite book as my perk was such a special moment! I’m so excited to add this to my shelf next to my original edition of The Fault in Our Stars, my target signed edition of The Fault in Our Stars, and my Project for Awesome 2014 exclusive signed edition of The Fault in Our Stars!!

Books are a weird collaboration between author and reader: You trust me to tell a good story, and I trust you to bring it to good life in your mind.

 1. “Then she was kissing him as she never kissed him before, and Harry was kissing her back, and it was a blissful oblivion, better than firewhiskey; she was the only real thing in the world, Ginny, the feel of her, one hand on her back, the other in her long sweet-smelling hair.” -J.K Rowling (Harry Potter: The half blood prince) 

2. “  […] and then thinking that Anne Frank, after all, kissed someone in the Anne Frank House, and that she would probably like nothing more than for her home to have become a place where the young and irreparably broken sink into live.” - John Green (The fault in our stars) 

3. “ “I’ll be your family now,“ he says.
"I love you,” I say. (….)
He stares at me. I wait with my hands clutching his arms for stability as he considers his response.
He frowns at me. “Say it again.”
“Tobias,” I say, “I love you.” “ - Veronica Roth (Insurgent)

4. “ Haymitch couldn’t be sending me a clearer message. One kiss equals one pot of broth. I can almost hear his snarl. "You’re supposed to be in love, sweetheart. The boy’s dying. Give me something I can work with!"And he’s right. If I want to keep Peeta alive, I’ve got to give the audience something more to care about. Star-crossed lovers desperate to get home together. Two hearts beating as one. Romance. “ - Suzan Collins (Hunger Games)
