Giveaway! FANGIRL by Rainbow Rowell


That’s right, guys…  Obviously, I really, really, really wanted to read Fangirl – because I ended up preordering it from BOTH 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.

Check out the blurb below if you haven’t heard enough about this book yet, and scroll down for the giveaway!

Giveaway! FANGIRL by Rainbow Rowell

Written by: Rainbow Rowell
Release date: September 10, 2013
Pages: 405
Add on: Goodreads
Also by this author: Fangirl

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?

    • You and me both!! I missed the LoK episode the other day but I’m SO EXCITED it’s back!! Can’t wait to jump back in. :D And I was such a huge fan of SPN back in the first few seasons, though I’ve grown away from it recently. But I don’t think that will ever happen with PJO – LOOOOOVE Rick Riordan!

  1. I totally fangirl over Jeremy from The Vampire Diaries! I am so Team Jeremy its not even funny. Like when he got killed off (I hope that’s not a spoiler for anyone!) I literally cried and went through the stages of grief. It was awful haha. And I fangirl over boy bands like Big Time Rush, One Direction and Emblem3 <3

  2. I’m a fangirl of John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars, R.J. Palacio’s Wonder, Harry Potter, Katherine Applegate’s The One and Only Ivan, Aaron Becker’s Journey, all of Jon Klassen’s work, and so many more! T.V. Show – Gray’s Anatomy!

    And yes, FANGIRL is AMAZING. Like ahhh. Thanks for the giveaway and preordering too many copies. (:

  4. My fangirl list is so extremely long as you well know lol. Victoria Schwab. Harry Potter obviously, and I was a HUGE Twilight fangirl back in the day. Veronica Mars, The Lizzie Bennett Diaries, The Grisha Trilogy, and The Vampire Diaries also come to mind.

  5. I’m a ridiculous Big Bang Theory fan- I can quote most episodes from the first four seasons extensively because I’ve watched them so many times. Also ridiculous is my fan-status around old music- like 40s and 50s old! Love the Andrews Sisters for a rainy day :)

    • Yesssss, I just got into GoT recently and love the show (though I still need to read the books too!). I also really want to start watching The Walking Dead. And I’ve never seen Breaking Bad, but my sister loves it!
