Fangirls, I’ve read four of Rowell’s books before, and I enjoyed all of them. This book was definitely aimed at an older audience (which is fine by me; I’m not really the Young Adult target audience, even if I enjoy those books). It’s based in 1999, with the worry of Y2K very present. But that’s not the main focus.
At first, I thought this was going to be a book that I hated. I thought it was too obviously fanfiction and too obvious with the plot and just too much. But then I got really into it. Really into it.
I’ve been apprehensive about this book for a long time, Fangirls. I love that the word “Fangirl” is becoming more and more prevalent, of course, but I also worry about it. But when I first looked at this book, it screamed like it was something that I had to read. The cover is my favorite color, the character on the front (kind of) looks like me, and it’s called Fangirl. For
butt’s sake, this book was written for me.
Hey readers! I know I’ve been reading a lot of Rick Riordan lately, so I’m taking a break between his series to read some other books on my list of intriguing books. This week I’m really excited about a book I read by Rainbow Rowell.
