Fangirl: A Novel | Rainbow Rowell
#1 New York Times bestselling author!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?A New York Times Book Review Notable Children's Book of 2013 A New York Times Best Seller!

I listened to this on audio and it was so, so good. I love all of Rainbow Rowell‘s books, I‘ve come to learn. She captures the feeling of young love and being a teenager/young person so well, I can‘t help but fall into her stories. #audiobook #litsyAtoZ

This is a short and sweet book, but the ending was very frustrating. I felt like a lot of space and time where wasted on the Simon Snow stuff when I really want to get more about Cath. I think the author started some good story lines and then just lost them. I would feel better about this book of there was a second one out and it flushed out the story. 2/5

A charming and human story about someone struggling to find themselves, after defining themselves in proximity to others - a twin sister, a fandom, and fanfic - their whole lives.

5/5 stars. Loved the concept of this story, and i loved the characters, but there was definitely somethings the characters did that i did not love. Perfect people don‘t exist, so perfect characters can‘t exist, but at the same time, I expected more from certain characters, and they took longer than i wanted to get there shit together.

This is an amazing book about being a twin . I loved it personally because , even I have a identical twin sister. When I read the summary that cath had a twin I bought the book with no hesitation and I am glad that I did that but I didn't feel like the book had a proper ending. It was incomplete other than that it's a fun read

Transfiguration OWL: 4⭐️

I read this because I had a recent death in the family and I needed a book that I knew would put a smile on my face the entire time I read it. This was completely it. This book was a shout out to all the nerdy girls out there (and boys!) who don't always feel like they are good enough but 100% are.

Cath and Wren are twins and fangirls of a Harry Potter-esque fantasy series. The books and the fandom helped them through tough times. Now that they are off to college, Wren wants to leave all that behind while Cath prefers to stay in her room writing fanfiction. This is a character driven coming-of-age story. The relationships between the characters are compelling and nuanced, but the plot kind of fizzles.

Stephaniereads1 One of my favorite books. 3mo

In January, I featured a wall of books about Social Justice and teen advocacy in my classroom. This month, I‘d like to feature books that display healthy relationships!
✨healthy friendships
✨healthy partnerships
✨family relationships
✨self-care
What recommendations do you all have? If I don‘t have them in my classroom, I‘ll try to borrow from other teachers or ask the district for some books!

Thanks for all of your help! 💖

Emilymdxn I thought To All The Boys I Loved Before was a good healthy love story in which being open, honest, respectful and clear about boundaries was important. I‘m also a huge fan of the family relationships in The Hate U Give, such a strong sense of community and complicated but respectful relationships with parents 4mo

A little late to the party on this one: But oh, is it perfectly timed.

Sometimes, there‘s a certain kind og book that fits a certain kind of mood. While I can‘t put the finger on my mood, at least I know that «Fangirl» is the kind of semi-existential book I need just now.

Nothing too turbulent, nothing too violent, but that cute, freshman-coming-of-age-story you‘ve heard a hundred times before, only with realistic characters and problems.

I noticed I‘m reading on my kindle more and more, just for the ease of the books(instant download), lighter weight than most books, and the fact that I can read in the dark easier with it propped up beside me, rather than weaken my wrists trying to hold a book late into the night. Plus I‘ve noticed I don‘t look as antisocial on my kindle or kindle app than with a physical book. I wonder if this comes with age and wisdom🤔🙌🏼📖📱 #bookishthoughts

Not my typical book choice, but I thought it was cute. Definitely brought back some good (and bad) college memories. I thought the Simon Snow excerpts were boring. I get it as a device, but it didn‘t work for me. There was some great dialogue.

This was a good read. The beginning felt a little too "young" for me but I suppose that is fitting for our main character, Cather. She is wholly inexperienced and unprepared for the new world of college she enters. The last 25% of the novel was by far the best! A must read for all the nerds in the world!
