    Thanks for your feedback!

    At first glance, Fangirl positions itself to be a silly, fluffy piece about identical twin sisters and their freshman year at college, and how one sister in particular must navigate her way through this perilous and confusing time, all while trying to churn out chapter after chapter of fanfiction to her adoring online readers. And it is that book, sweetly refreshing, never taking itself too seriously, but it also manages to be so much more -- about mental illness, friendship, sisters, mothers, living as an introvert in an extrovert's world, and falling in love, safely and sensibly with someone who deserves it (no creepy pouty vampires here ladies and gentleman! and no love triangles! hooray!)

    If you love Harry Potter and fanfiction, you will love Fangirl

    I read Fangirl a few months ago, and it's stuck with me, it was that great. If you've ever loved a book series like Cath loves Simon Snow (ie. Harry Potter), or indeed, if you've ever been a passionate fan of anything and also maybe like a romantic plotline thrown in your YA fiction, this is the book for you. Rainbow Rowell perfectly captures what it's like to be a fangirl. Loved this book.

    5 perfect stars! I completely loved Fangirl!

    I completely loved Fangirl! It was touching, sweet, and laugh out loud funny. Rainbow Rowell's writing is superb and she has become one of my favorite authors because she creates such a fantastic variety of realistic characters that anyone can relate to. I love all their quirks, insecurities, and that they are perfectly imperfect. I didn't know very much about the world of fan fiction prior to reading this book, but I can definitely relate to the energy, excitement, and obsession in a fandom. It was fascinating to see how much it both helped and consumed Cath's life. Although I enjoyed the glimpses into Simon Snow's world and plan to read Carry On, I did find the snippets at the end of the chapters a little distracting. This is probably because I was eager to get back to Cath (and of course, Levi!) Oh, Levi. From his receding hairline/crazy widow's peak to his love of range managment, I became totally smitten. He's adorably sweet and yes, he makes some mistakes, but that makes things all the more perfect at the end. I enjoyed Levi and Cath individually as characters and loved them together. Levi's easygoing additude and Cath's introverted nature are the perfect complement to each other. Honestly, I could read about Cath and Levi forever. PLEASE CAN THIS BE A THING?! There are so many wonderful things I can say about the characters in this book. Rainbow Rowell's thoughtful portrayal of Cath's bipolar father and his struggles to navigate this new world without his daughter's at home was especially touching. Cath also struggles emotionally with her mother who abandoned the family and with Wren, her twin sister who has decided that college will be the moment to remake herself without Cath. One of my favorite characters though, was Cath's roommate, Reagan. She provides some levity to the story and her sarcastic and snarky attitude are hilarious! Even Professor Piper and Nick are well developed and play key roles in helping Cath come into her own. Everyone just felt so real and honest. No one is perfect in this book and that's what makes it so memorable and wonderful. After reading and loving both Eleanor & Park and Fangirl, Rainbow Rowell is definitely one of my auto-buy authors!

    Fangirl is a very adorable and light-hearted read that will delight readers who are fans of contemporary romance. Rowell has a way with words as well as creating lovely characters like Levi and Reagan. The only downfall in this book however, is I feel that the story has ended too abruptly. Other than that, I recommend this book to anyone who are looking to read something cute and fun.

    I loved this book. Rainbow Rowell writes the most relatable stories, and even though I am not Cath, I could relate to a lot of what she went through. The characters were all lovable, I loved how the characters develop over time. It was a very enjoyable read. Lighthearted, fun. occasionally emotional .
