Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: A Review

Get ready to fangirl for Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell!  The cover alone had me completely intrigued by the book.  I try not to "judge a book by its cover," but truth be told I do.  The cover is what grabs me first and makes me pick up the book.  The title didn't hurt on this one, I knew it was going to be right up my alley...and it was.

I am not usually a quick reader, if I read a book a month, that is a good month.  But with Fangirl, I was done in a week {that is good for me!} and when I was done, I MISSED the characters!  That is how you know it is a good book, when you are done and you miss your "friends."

Fan girl follows Cath into her first year away at college.  Cath is consumed with writing fan-fiction for a Harry Potter like novel, on her Tumblr like website.  In between chapters you get a glimpse at the original author's writings and Cath's fan-fiction.  See how Cath navigates through her first year away at college, first loves and growing into your own identity {which I completely related to}.

Magic/fantasy, social media, blogging.  All my nerd bases were covered!

I highly recommend this one to ALL the fan-girls out there!  Rainbow Rowell is someone who understands our passions/obsessions/loves.

*5 out of 5 stars*

  2. It sounds great! I was also drawn in by the cover (it caught my eye because I follow that artist on tumblr, haha) but had no idea what it was about.

  10. So good. Rainbow Rowell develops her characters so well. They have flaws and imperfections that make them relatable. A fanfic writer protagonist sounds like a strange premise, but it works!
