Fangirl- Rainbow Rowell

Title: Fangirl
Author: Rainbow Rowell
Source: From the publisher
Series: Standalone
Rating: 5/5

Goodreads Summary:

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.

Every book rainbow Rowell writes I fall more and more in love with her writing. This book was amazing. Cath is obsessed with Simon Snow and she writes fan fiction about Simon Snow. Her sister, Wren used to write with her sister but since they have started college she does not want to anything to do with Simon Snow anymore. Cath is having a hard time adjusting to college life and so she surrounds herself with Simon Snow.

I have so many feelings for these characters. Cath and Wren had a love/hate relationship with each other. Wren wants to forget about Simon Snow and her twin sister Cath wants to live in the world of Simon Snow. Cath's new roommate is the complete opposite of Cath. Her friend Levi is always in their room, trying to bring Cath out of her shell. 

I loved everything about this book. I loved that it dealt with college. It is such a big step to take in life and I was glad this book looked at how hard and awkward that time can be along with the issues that Cath and Wren have to deal with there parents. 

I loved this book so much I cannot put into writing how much I love it. I cannot wait until this is out for everyone to read it.
