Loved this book <3 Full review/booktalk: http://youtu.be/x6DmZnc6Nd8
Why I Fangirl over Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl (Spoilers: Levi)
If you've been following my reviews for a while now, you probably know by now that Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl is an all-time favorite of mine; I make sure to reread it every single year.
This time around, I decided to revisit the book through a different medium by checking out the audiobook for the first time, as I mention in the Parks and Rec book tag (where I feature Reagan for Ron Swanson's question, yet somehow still wound up includin ...more
And just like that, I'm finished.
Dammit Rainbow, I'm going to be lost for the next week now, with no fictional boyfriend to curl up with at night.
I'm sure in your internet travels, you've all seen the comic that says "That moment when you finish a book, look around, and realise that everyone is just carrying on with their lives as though you didn't just experience emotional trauma at the hands of a paperback."
That is me. Right now. At 1am.
Lonely, and alone. With no Levi to cuddle up to. ...more
I loved this story to infinity and beyond...
My favorite types of books are the ones that speak to you; directly to the reader. The ones that resonate so deeply within your psyche that you feel as though you're actually learning things about yourself in the process.
That is exactly what I experienced while reading Fangirl. If you were to judge by the cover and blurb alone, you may think this story is nothing but a quirky, fun read about an interesting girl addicted to writing fanfic. But ...more
Reread October 2015: AHHHHH I felt all the love for this book that I felt the first time plus more! I love everything about this book and I want to reread it again immediately ;D
Original review from December 2013: Fangirl was so cute and relatable! I loved every single character and their relationships with each other. Rainbow Rowell's writing style is wonderful and I can't wait to read more books from her!
Yes, I'd like me one Levi Stewart please, thank you.

Book Song: Afraid by The Neighbourhood.
You know, it’s been so long since I’ve disliked a book to the point of wanting to rant about it that I was starting to think I’d lost my cynical edge.
So I guess that’s one point in Fangirl’s favor.
And, you know, I liked Fangirl at first. It seemed that it was going to do something new with a protagonist that wasn’t the typical quirky teen girl.
Here’s where I stop and give my short review before delving into a much-needed rant: The protagonist, Cath, is a wholly passive character who gets exactly ...more
5 AMAZING & SPECTACULAR STARS!!!
I just LOVED this book! It made me so happy! Everything about it- just fantastic!
Cath is a twin. She is a writer. She is a Simon Snow fan. Quite possibly the biggest Simon Snow fan there is. Cather’s big thing is fanfiction. She takes her most favorite books, and writes her own stories. She makes the two main guys in the books gay and in love.
"It's bad enough that you have homemade Simon Snow posters," Reagan had said last night while she was getting read...more
