Happy Reading Corner Friday!!!
I’m sharing another amazing book by Rainbow Rowell called FanGirl.
Watch me talk about it below or continue on reading. Enjoy!
This story follows Caith while she goes through her first year of college. Her twin sister Wren is attending the same school but they both have a very different experience.
Caith is more of a home body, she doesn’t care for change and just wants to make it through college in one piece and with her sister by her side. Unfortunately her sister has a different idea of how she wants to attend college.
Caith meets people along the way that push her boundaries and get her out of her shell.
I love this book because there isn’t this big fall out drama going on for the most part you are just following Caith around and finding out her life story and seeing why she is the way she is.
It’s like following around a girl from school and seeing what her life is about and what she does day in and day out…I love it.
The reason this book is called FanGirl is because well, she is a huge fan of a popular book/movie series and she writes loads of fan fiction about it. Her sister used to help and now that college is getting int the way she is feeling a bit out of sorts.
Her fans make her feel special and she doesn’t have to hide in the world. She has a very hard time getting out of her shell in this book but at the end of it all you are very happy to see where Caith is at.
I really hope Rainbow Rowell writes another story and follows up with what everyone is doing.
Cath is a Simon Snow fan.
Okay, everybody is a Simon Snow fan, but for Cath it’s something more. Fandom is life. It’s what got her and her sister, Wren, through losing their mom. It’s what kept them close.
And now that she’s starting college, introverted Cath isn’t sure what’s supposed to get her through. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fanfiction 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? Writing her own stories?
And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?
Once you finished this book you can read Carry On which is the book that Caith writes fan fiction about!
Simon Snow is the worst Chosen One who’s ever been chosen.
That’s what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he’s probably right.
Half the time, Simon can’t even make his wand work, and the other half, he sets something on fire. His mentor’s avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there’s a magic-eating monster running around wearing Simon’s face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here—it’s their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon’s infuriating nemesis didn’t even bother to show up.
Carry On is a ghost story, a love story, and a mystery. It has just as much kissing and talking as you’d expect from a Rainbow Rowell story — but far, far more monsters.
