Adults Can Read Whatever The Hell They Want

Adults Can Read Whatever The Hell They Want

Well, well, well. And what do we have here? Just a clickbait article from my (usually lovely) Slate called “Against YA.” And the subhed is fun: “Read whatever you want. But you should feel embarrassed when what you’re reading was written for children.”

Oh.

It’s on, motherfuckers. Keep reading »

Hazel Grace & Augustus Get Their Flirt On In This “The Fault In Our Stars” Clip

Hazel Grace & Augustus Get Their Flirt On In This "A Fault In Our Stars" Clip
Hazel Grace & Augustus Get Their Flirt On

I’m sure many fans of John Green’s book feel this way, but the movie adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars is something I’m both very excited and nervous about. The book is so wonderful, so heartwrenching, so moving, it’s worrisome to think that the film could fall short in conveying and extracting those emotions, as book-to-movie adaptations often do. But by the looks of this clip, which debuted during last night’s MTV Movie Awards, I don’t have much to worry about. I enjoy Shailene Woodley as an actress and look forward to seeing how she takes on the role of cancer-stricken Hazel Grace, but it’s Ansel Elgort who completely steals this scene as the enigmatic Augustus. Elgort completely nails Gus’s amused, flirtatious, confident, philosophical vibe, and in just a quick 60 seconds, we see exactly why Hazel — and the book’s readers — can’t turn away. June 6 can’t get here soon enough.
