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!

Good book. I think I missed a decent amount of it without realizing it because of how tired I was when I read this at night, but the parts I actually remember were good! I found it interesting how different the Simon Snow books were in this than how they ended up being. 4⭐️

5✨ This was such a cute story! Twins Cath and Wren are on their way to college. Cath is a Fan fiction writer who loves Simon Snow (Similar to Harry Potter) to an extreme fan girl status. Wren not so much as she embraces college life. There are many trials, boys, and scary situations throughout this book. It was an absolute joy to get lost in.

Roary47 Ooo yay! This was my #BookSpinBingo for November @TheAromaofBooks 3mo
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! I love this one. I also would love it if Rowell would write this same story except from Wren's perspective - it would be so interesting to see the flip side of this story! 3mo

Rainbow Rowell writes books that make me feel a little better about life in general. The characters feel like real people to me - awkward and imperfect and trying to find their way through life - and though they deal with heavy and hard situations, they keep going and carry on. I‘m sure Rainbow will eventually write a book I don‘t enjoy as much, but she hasn‘t let me down yet.

Liatrek I feel the same way about all her books❤️❤️ 12mo

Mediocre. The power was out so I read them but they didn't thrill me. Teen me would have loved Fangirl at the time but it doesn‘t hit the same at 31. Second Black Widow had less set up and drag time than the first and was much better for not having two teens drooling proclaiming themselves soul mates 2 seconds after they meet but also ghost boyfriend loses points. Especially when it ends ghost brother too.

Fangirl is my favorite RR book, and this picks up when curmudgeonly Reagan is 38 and dealing with the pandemic. A heartwarming romantic short story featuring Jell-O salad. Rainbow + Rebecca Lowman = Christmas perfection!

Plus I was glad to find out what happened to Levi and Cather! 🥰🎄

Free with Amazon Prime. Inexpensive if you want to buy. 💚

Time for presents! 🎁

Crinoline_Laphroaig The only thing that would have made it better was if included the Jello Salad Recipes. 13mo

Not quite what I was expecting from a RR short story.

It‘s interesting to read stories set in COVID times - Reagan, has spent the pandemic being as careful as possible, but has decided to spend Christmas with her recently widowed Grandfather. It‘s about social isolation and how it affects you. It‘s set over two Christmases - and features some sort of jello dessert that you probably have to be American to understand.

thegirlwiththelibrarybag Reagan first appears in Fangirl - and Levi is mentioned as her high school / college boyfriend that she is still in contact with. This short story doesn‘t currently have its own listing - so since it has a small link to Fangirl - here it is! 1y

I really enjoyed the main story of Cath and the events surrounding her. For me, there was far too much Simon Snow, though. I skimmed over almost all of the Simon Snow writings in the book. This is what brought my rating down by a quarter star. I did come to quite like Reagan. I loved Luke! There were some serious topics in the book, but it‘s still a lighthearted book with humourous bits thrown in.

This was fantastic! Cath is so sweet, but not always soft, and—at least for me—her semi-recluse first semester of college is super easy to relate to. I also felt grateful that Rowell chose not to go a pathway of tearful family reunions, but still found ways to create emotion and interest for the entire book. In short: READ THIS ONE!

There is just something about Rainbow Rowell‘s writing that draws me in. Her characters have a Dawson‘s Creek quality to them that I just love. In this book, Cath is a huge Simon Snow fan (Harry Potter) and writes fan fiction that has generated many followers. Now she is JUST trying to navigate college despite suffering from pretty severe anxiety. Add to that, an absent mother, a twin who wants space, and a bipolar father. Oh, and Levi!!!!

This was a cute read, and I loved having it as an audiobook because it was super easy to remember the characters and where I was at.

We follow Cath on her journey into young adulthood where she is living away from home for the first time, in a dorm room, being challenged to write more than fanfiction and also perhaps finding a love interest...?

I would 100% recommend this to college students because Im sure they could relate on numerous levels.

kezzlou85 I loved this book. Its such a great read and relatable in many ways. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I loved this one, such a light and fun read, but also serious in some parts… I loved her relationship with her mother & father in this one too. 2y

This book took me straight back to being a nervous 17 year old sitting in my Louisiana Hall dorm room and not knowing how to even start understanding college & the whole summer of 2008. Vivid memories of waiting for the last Twilight book, scouring the internet on my brand new white MacBook, and the pure excitement of knowing my life was about to reach levels that my small town would never have given me. ✨ #fangirl #yareading

Fangirl - I love Rowell‘s writing. She just has a way with words. Admittedly this is only second book of hers I‘ve read. I don‘t normally read YA, but I did enjoy this book (except for the interrupting Simon sections). Cath grew as a person through the book which is what I look forward to in characters. Levi was such an amazing and even character. Wren while a secondary character also was improving at the end.

jb72 DNF for Self Esteem - my brain is just not in the mood for it at the moment. 2y
LiteraryinLawrence I also loved Attachments by Rowell. 2y
jb72 @LiteraryinLititz Thanks for the recommendation! My library has that in ebook. 2y

TheAromaofBooks I really love Fangirl a lot - one of my dreams is for Rowell to write a parallel book that focuses on Wren during the same first year at college. And I totally agree with @LiteraryinLititz - I love Attachments!!! 2y

TheAromaofBooks @Megabooks - I like truly love Cath and Levi together and would be way into a sequel of them being happily married with a little family!!! I like to think they also have a set of twins! 2y
jb72 @ElizaMarie I agree! I did put the ebook on hold at the library. It says I‘m #2 on the wait list. I‘ll have to browse today and see if they have the physical copy. 2y
ElizaMarie @jb72 I put it on hold too but its about a month (probably longer!) 2y

This was cute, light-hearted read. I really related to Cath and her social anxiety quirks. This was a good depiction of a freshman year in college, trying to figure out your way in a whole new world. I liked the slow burn romance aspect and the family dynamics. Plus it was fun to have little snippets of Simon and Baz since I've already read their later story.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I really liked this one too, and I loved both the Baz & Simon books, I can‘t wait for the next one. 2y

Found this special edition at the Dollar Tree and couldn't resist.

I'm so glad I gave in to temptation knowing nothing about the book other than recognizing the name of the author.

Needless to say, I am now a fangirl of Rainbow Rowell 🌈

This story was fun, charming and serious. And there is another book based on the story within this story!

PS - I had to get the wildflowers in this picture. I love how it turned out 😊
