Last week, we revived our Book Reports with Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller. We got some great feedback from you guys, and really, really enjoy diving into these discussions. Estelle was trying to decide what she should read next and we discussed how great it would be to do a Fangirl Book […]

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - I loved reading this joint review/chat! And there is something you each said that makes me even more excited to read this book.

E mentioned “finding this balance between your passions and also LIVING,” and then later M said “there needs to be a balance between living in the real world and not allowing this to take over our lives.” Right there? SOLD. Good thing I already bought this one! Time to finally start reading it!

Alexa Y. - I’m loving this book report too ladies! I agree with a lot of the things you had to say about Fangirl, but I think the aspect that really spoke to me was Cath’s college experience. It certainly reminded me a lot of my own experience as a college freshman, writing classes, awkward moments, holing up in my dorm room and all. That’s what really made the book so relatable to me.

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - I love this discussion so much! Not only everything you guys said, which I’m totally on board with for this amazing book, but it just seems like you guys have so much fun. I want a co-blogger!

Magan, I agree with you that the fanfiction was jarring, at the beginning I kind of glossed over it, but by the end I was so invested in what was going to happen to Simon and Baz. I still wish I knew what happened!

Lena @ Addicted 2 Novels - You guys are insanely creative. I absolutely love this discussion. FANGIRL is amazeballs, and you guys definitely pointed out every nonspoilery reason why people should pick this book up ASAP.

Bookworm1858 - Of course, I liked this book a lot but the way the fanfiction was mixed in still made it my least favorite Rowell book. I found the other sections a bit choppy and got a bit confused at times whether I was reading the fanfic or the actual fic.

Alisa Selene - I loved this book as well! Rainbow Rowell is easily becoming one of my all time favorite authors!

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - Another wonderful discussion! I am definitely loving these posts, and hope you continue them.

I loved Fangirl so much. It was kind of scary, how much I related to Cath, and it seems like most readers have identified with Cath, too.

Rainbow really knows how to create realistic characters, and tell their stories.

Stormy - I love this type of review/conversation format, and it’s definitely making me want to go and pick up Fangirl even more now! I’m really excited to meet Cath, Levi, and Reagan. I know a lot of people said the fanfiction excerpts were a bit jarring, so I’m interested to see if they effect me the same way. All in all, though, from reviews I’ve read it seems that a lot of Cath’s college experience might be similar to my freshman year experience, and I’m very eager to explore it.
