There are fans and there are fangirls, Cath falls in the second category. Simon Snow has been a great part of her life, not only has she read all the books and she is a respected figure when talking about Simon Snow fanfcition, but it used to be something that tied her and her sister together.
Now it seems that their twin senses aren’t tingling nor in sync. College is around the corner and Wren just drop a bomb on her, they are not rooming together. Now Cath is at the mercy of her new roommate and her charming and always smiling boyfriend.
To add a little to the stress of her new environment Wren’s and Cath’s father isn’t what you would call stable and Cath can’t stop worrying about it. College, family and people are all coming at Cath whether she is ready or not, can this fangirl survive in an environment so far away from her comfort zone?
I loved loved loved Fangirl, I was squirming, screaming and squealing, jumping and turning. Honestly I’ve been banging my head on my desk for not reading it as soon as it came out.
Would I’ve not enjoyed this book as much if I just read it instead of listening to the audio book? Definitely! That is not to say that Rebecca Lowman didn’t do a good job giving life to the whole fangirl entourage, and not to say that Maxwell Caulfield didn’t do a great backing her up.
The characters where yummy to read, Cath’s insecurities, her motivation, the way she was hit by the bumps in the road made her a really interested and fun character to read. The best part of it was that I never felt that she was being untrue to herself.
Secondary characters wise, yes some of them where kind of predictable but others punched this really nice surprises and I would love to get lost in a short story of Ragen and Levi. This book covers the basis of a standalone, it has the sweet glory of having a full story in just one book with the sweetest agony of wanting and craving for more.
