Fangirl Review

FANGIRL 1

FANGIRL BY RAINBOW rOWELL

MY RATING: 4 bulbs

THE PLOT

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? Writing her own stories?

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

I would like to comment more on the characters rather than the book itself, cause it is a well-written book, needless for me to say that. Continue reading

Reunited Review

REUNITED BY HILARY WEISMAN GRAHAM

Rating:  3 bulbsimages

Had I read this book at the age of 16 to 19 years old I bet I would have loved it. So I’m gonna stick to that and not mention my real feelings because at the age of 26 it didn’t quite fit. Nonetheless, it was an easy-to-read book with its fun moments here and there. I liked how the author approached the girls’ friendship and how the story ended, full of hope and potential. It’s great for a girl who’s looking to spend a couple of fun and adventurous nights in bed with “Reunited”. Continue reading
