That’s right, guys… Obviously, I really, really, really wanted to read Fangirl – because I ended up preordering it from BOTH Amazon.com AND Barnes & Noble. I don’t even know how that happened. I was just so excited for this book. XP Now, I could have easily returned one of these copies, but let’s face it – I love spreading the book-love. So I thought, what better way to do that than to just give away my extra copy? :D
This works out extra awesomely because I absolutely frickin’ adored this book. This post isn’t going to turn into a review (that will be coming next week), but seriously – if fandom is or has ever been a big part of your life, you need to read Fangirl. I related to Cath (the main character) more than I’ve ever related to a character EVER, and it felt so good to read about someone I related to so strongly. And not just Cath, but all the characters were fantastic – plus the romance is super adorable and feels-inducing. ;) So whether you’re in it for the relatability or for the cuteness, you seriously need to have this book.

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? And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?
