Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Amazon/Barnes and Noble
absolutely LOVED Fangirl. And, yes, the all-caps is a big pointer to
how much I think my friends should read this wonderfully written book. *cough cough* Please?
This may or may not be more of a short worshiping than a review, just
warning you. I feel like I should also say sorry in advance for all the
exclamation points. I'll tone 'em down for you... maybe.
about the book was just plain sweet. Was it the romance? Cath's love of Fan-fiction? Her growing friendship with her unique roommate? The sister
bond between Cather and Wren? (Cathe-rine. Get it?)The answer is ALL of
those things, and more.
Also, there are many heavier topics. What
happens when your Mom just gets up and leaves? What happens to the
daughters and husband? Well, Wren starts going out... and getting into
trouble. Cath finds solace in her Fanfic and stays mostly in her room.
Their Dad needs a little help. I LOVED (see the all caps again)
how heartwarming/breaking the whole story was, I cried a little and
smiled, a lot! I also read this book in only one night. I was completely
pulled into Cath's world!
The romance also deserves a full fivestars. Cath and unnamed love interest have such awesome interactions! (I'm not telling who! hehehe) It was
so darn sweet! And real, and meaningful, and all that jazz. Oh, darn,
now I'm singing All That Jazz from the movie Chicago! Back to
the topic Em. Oh yeah! One of my favorite characters in the book is, um,
we'll call this love interest Smiley... okay? Well, Smiley was one of
my favorite characters. Can I marry that guy? He is nice and funny
and... loves energy bars! (Which is what I live on.)
READ THIS BOOK! (Or, at least read it if you think Fangirl may be up
your alley) And also, Simon Snow is awesome, even though it isn't real,
(I think) After reading this, I feel like it is! And the ending of the
book was perfect. Wow, I need to stop raving, this was supposed to be a
the concluding paragraph.
This about sums my thought up: Rainbow Rowell is amazing.
note I received this book through Firstreads. That factor, however, did
not influence this 100% honest review. (I have given out numero uno stars to books I have received from Firstreads before.)*
