A sweet, honest and relatable story. Anyone who has ever felt socially awkward will identify with the main character, Cath. It is a coming-of-age story that would be fantastic to read when starting college. It has realistic, likeable…

Was expecting a different ending... It was fun at the beginning but at the end I just lost interest on the book.

I first read this at the beginning of my freshman year of college, and I related to Cath so much that it weirded me out. (Especially because we have the same last name.) I didn’t write fanfic, but I did write, and like Cath, I was studying…

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell is amazing. Wren and Cath are twin sisters who are polar opposites in terms of their personalities. Both girls go to college and split apart. Cath, who is very much an introvert, finds love while helping her…

I thought Fangirl was/is brilliant. Author Rainbow Rowell skillfully narrates the story of Cath, a first year student at the U of Nebraska burdened with a hostile roommate and an author of Simon Snow, popular online fanfiction set at a…

So...I had really high expectations, and I think that was my first mistake. I didn’t hate it, I actually quite enjoyed it, but I took a star away because I hated Cath for the first ⅔ of the book. She was immature, winey, scared of…

Cath has been writing fanfiction about Simon Snow ever since she read the first book in the series about him, and it has not only made her an excellent writer, but has also earned her a very large fan base online. Her twin sister, Wren,…

This book holds a special place in my heart. I find myself re-reading it at least once a year because I just can't get enough of these characters. So lovely.

Read it over and over again. Great for a casual read, yet still impactful and leaves you feeling satisfied like a warm mug of apple cider.

Fangirl is definitely a cutesy, quick read, perfect for curling up with on cold days under the covers. The story deals with college freshman Cather (Cath for short) learning to adapt to her new, more independent life, as she struggles with…

The book Fangirl reminds me of my first time at middle school, like a box full of surprises. Cath is a college freshman, but is having a tough time since she has to do everything by herself from making friends, preparing for finals to all…

A quirky, offbeat story about fanfiction, finding yourself, and finding others.

Summary: Fangirl is about Cather “Cath” Avery’s life in her first year of college. Cath has a passion for writing that made her join a Fiction-Writing class, and write Carry On, which is a fanfiction novel for the “Harry Potter” series…

I'm not usually a huge fan of YA books but this author just sucks me into their books! This one was so sweet and funny

I have always wanted to read this book and I am glad I did! This was such an enjoyable read for me. I connected to the main character as she transitioned from high school to college, a similar experience I went through as well. This book…

I read the original fangirl book with the pink cover and some fanart inside I thought it was a really good book to be honest I loved how Cath grew as a character and how she and Ren (her sister) tried to patch things up in the end. The…

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell is one of my favorite books ever of all time, so when this originally came out I was so excited to read it....and then I stopped after the first couple chapters. Her storytelling abilities are just too good…

As a nerdy almost college aged girl, this spoke to me. Rainbow Rowell is a wonderful writer and this book is must-read for anyone who enjoys reading or writing fanfiction or just connecting to life in general. Absolutely lovely.

The more I read of Rainbow Rowell, the more I think she may be an underrated genius. I didn't think anything could match my love for "Eleanor & Park," but I really and truly loved this story (maybe just a smidge less, but still).

I was not a fan of Fangirl... honestly I had to do a lot of rereading because I kept falling asleep while reading this book. I think this book was kind of boring, but really well written. Rainbow Rowell is one of my favorite writers, but…

I love EVERYTHING Rainbow Rowell! That being said, Fangirl is one of my all-time favorites. Fangirl follows Cath, a recent high school grad with plans to study creative writing in college, but finds that not everyone has the same ideas…
