The Fault in Our Stars Bench

Y'know that bench in Amsterdam, that got stolen and then was put back? Y'know, the bench that is famous for being in the movie adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars? Well, y'know something? I went to that bench 4 weeks ago, at it was the best bench I have ever sat on. 

While on my two-day visit to Amsterdam, the TFIOS bench was a must to go and see for me. And by God was it worth it. The bench is covered in vandalism of quotes from both the book and the film, 'I don't want to see a world without Augustus Waters' is plastered along the back of the bench, as shown in the picture. There are also balloons and flowers chained to the bench and it all just shows how much TFIOS is appreciated. 

The fact that I was able to visit the bench was amazing and it was something I will never forget. I am so appreciative of this trip and I will remember it for the rest of my life. If you want to see a full post based on my trip you can find one on my other blog (liked here).

You can find the bench on the Leidsegracht in Amsterdam. I have also put it on this map for you (linked here).

Thanks for reading this post, I hope you enjoyed it. Let me know on twitter if you've been to see the TFIOS bench and what you thought.

A Quick Recap of 2014

In spirit of the New Year being in just a few days time, I've decided that I should do a little recap of 2014 before 2015 is amongst us. So let's jump right on in.

1. Mockingjay Part 1
I cannot believe that we are almost at the end of the Hunger Games trilogy. I seriously just cannot comprehend this. It's crazy, but here's to part 2 in 2015!

2. Divergent
This year we also got to see our dearly beloved Tris and Tobias on our screens. And in 2015, Insurgent will be released. You can watch the trailer for Insurgent here.

3. The Fault in our Stars
This was also the year that we finally got to see TFIOS and the fandom exploded. Enough said.

4. The Maze Runner
This year was when I finally got around to reading the Maze Runner series and fell in love when Dylan O'Brien stepped onto my screen. Here's to The Scorch Trials next year, eh?

5. Four
Now, this one doesn't really fit in with the recurring theme of book to move adaptations, but I though it deserved a mention. 

Here's to 2015!

I'm going to link the previous posts I have done on these movies/books here so you can read more of what I think if you wish.

Just thought that I'd throw in a little post to tell you that I hope you have a very merry Christmas and get everything you wanted and all that jazz. I'll be stuffing my face the entire day with anything I can get my hands on so I'll probably be the size of a house by Boxing Day. 

Have a good Christmas,
