It took me a week to read, but I made it through Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell! This post won’t be very long, and is more of an update than a review, but I wanted to tell everyone that I liked it.
You’ll here me say this a lot, I’m sure, but I’m not a big contemporary fan. If I was a bigger fan of the genre, I likely would have given this book top stars, as I really did enjoy it. And I’m actually in love with the fact that this book involves a blossoming romance, and isn’t a hot-and-heavy sort of story that tries to give me love without any context.
These characters are lovable, relatable, and feel like real people. I would definitely have a mega crush on Levi in real life, he’s absolutely adorable!
But as I’m not much of a contemporary reader, I found myself wanting to put this book down – so I could read Carry On instead. I was way more engaged with the lives of Simon and Baz than I was with Cath and Levi. But that’s just me. I found snippets of fantasy and held on to them for dear life.
This book was adorable. Like really, really cute. I would totally read a novel about Cath’s sophomore year, and probably her junior and senior years too. And I wouldn’t mind owning the pink and yellow special editions of this book. They might end up on my wish list soon.
With this week long excursion through Fangirl, I’ve earned my Thunder Badge! Did it live up to the thunderous hype? For me, yeah. I guess. Sorry. I’m really bad at reviewing this genre. It was a really good book, beautifully written, and I want to read a sequel, but it didn’t change my life.
I’m super glad I read it, though, because now I’ve super hyped myself up for Carry On. Luckily, Monferno (384CP) and I are heading straight to Celadon City to read it. I’m so pumped!
