So close to perfect, just too neatly wrapped up in the end. Much like Eleanor & Park, Fangirl filled me with those first love butterflies that begin deep in your gut. It was easy to connect emotionally with Cath. The focus of the story is not necessarily on plot, but the development of our protagonist and those that surround her - my favourite kind of book. The YA by Rainbow Rowell has impressed me a lot, I'm eager to try her adult work.

Remember how exciting yet scary your first love (and university) was? This book draws you back to those feelings. The only thing I could have done without was whole Simon Snow bit - I understand why it was there - but it was just too much at times.

Okay, so when i saw this i was like i've got to get this. The tittle connected to my friends and i very well and when i read the description i was all like, mhhhhmmn. And i was like my friends will love this, the tittle is basicallly our life :'(. Anyway, i'm really excited to read this book :)

Ugh..Cath sometimes frustrates me because she is such a non adventurous person. However the book really won me over because Cath wasn't one of those whiny beachy protagist. I found myself relating to the way she handles all of her problems. And come on, Levi is pretty cute in the book right?

Amazingly real characters, superb writing, highly relatable. I have nothing but good things to say about this book and quite enjoyed it. I didn't love it to the level so many other readers I know have, but I certainly liked it and give it a strong endorsement and recommendation.

Rowell produces another fascinating Young Adult book! I love her characters and their voices. This one examines the life of a freshman in college, looking for herself and trying to face multiple issues including a crazy father, an absent mother, a twin sister with her own issues, and a new boyfriend to name a few. As a Midwesterner myself, I enjoyed the fact that it was set in Nebraska. I appreciated the pace of the book; it moved quickly and kept me wanting more.

Exceptionally good writing. I didn't think I could like another YA book as much as I liked John Green's The Fault in our Stars, but this book proved me wrong. Do yourself a favour and put it on hold. Now!

This was the feel good book of the year. It just makes you smile and giggle. I so enjoyed Rowell's writing style and I absolutely fell in love with the characters. I would definitely recommend this book, but it does have some content that should be considered for older readers. Can't wait to get my hands on the rest of her books!

How do you not like the Internet? That's like saying, 'I don't like things that are convenient. And easy. I don't like having access to all of mankind's recorded discoveries at my fingertips. I don't like light. And knowledge.
