I read TFiOS and I really loved it. I really liked how dynamic both Hazel and Augustus were and I loved the romance between them. I’ve never read any other John Green books, but I’m thinking about it. What are some good books that are similar to them? They don’t necessarily have to do with cancer, though I liked the book because it had to do with cancer as well.

Me and Earl and the dying girl
Reason: Addressing a scary subject like terminal illnesses is never easy or fun, but through complex and relatable characters these novels do it with a sense of humor, honesty and even irreverence. — Sarah Stanley
. Before I die
Reason: While determined Tessa (Before I Die) wants to experience life and sarcastic Hazel (Stars) hides from it, the brutality of terminal cancer and the tingle of a new romance drives both of these thoughtful, character centered novels. — Alina Gerall
. A love story starring my dead best friend
Reason: While their stories are different, there’s a lot of sadness in both of these novels — but a lot of the thrill in life, too. Readers who crave realistic dialogue and characters dealing with life’s messiness will be mesmerized. — Ellen Foreman
. Forever changes
Halpin, Brendan, –
Reason: For emotional yet never sappy stories about true-to-life (if a bit eccentric) characters dealing with harsh realities, check out either of these alternately funny and serious novels. — Ellen Foreman
