Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Review: I finally read it! I can now join in with everyone else, when talking about how great it is!!!
The beginning is a little bit of a rough start because its not as smooth but it does pick up pretty fast. The characters are great and amazing and I want them all to be my friends! ( Yeah, I know I’m being fluffy) The book is such a fun read and by the end of it you just want to read more of Rowell’s work. I know I do.
Cath, the main character is so easy for me to relate too, and I think many people do too. She just loves to be in her world of fiction more then in the real world, and college is scary to her too. And lets not forget the fanfiction, everyone reads it at least once in their life, but never forgets that one. Also there may be some of you who have written some, like myself, who understands what Cath is going through. Lets face it, a lot of times fanfiction is better than the real stuff and it’s an out come that you want more then others. Then there the Harry Potter twist of ” Simon Snow” ( Harry and Draco shipping) being the mega big book everyone loves, but Rowell does stick in that Harry Potter does exist in this world too.
Now lets move on to….Levi
How cute is he! I mean no one is that adorable, and sweet to a weird girl. Yup, so if you are going to read this be prepared to be knocked over by Levi and is adorableness.
And can I just say, I am so happy someone finally wrote a book about Fangirling !

Summary: In Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl, Cath is a Simon Snow fan. Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan, but for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving.
Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.
Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.
Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words . . . And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.
For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories? Open her heart to someone? Or will she just go on living inside somebody else’s fiction?
