Book Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Title: FanGirl
Author: Rainbow Rowell
Publisher: Pan Macmillan
Publication Date: 30th January 2014

Cath and Wren are identical twins, and until recently they did absolutely everything together. Now they're off to university and Wren's decided she doesn't want to be one half of a pair any more - she wants to dance, meet boys, go to parties and let loose. It's not so easy for Cath. She's horribly shy and has always buried herself in the fan fiction she writes, where she always knows exactly what to say and can write a romance far more intense than anything she's experienced in real life. Without Wren Cath is completely on her own and totally outside her comfort zone. She's got a surly room-mate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction 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. Now Cath has to decide whether she's ready to open her heart to new people and new experiences, and she's realizing that there's more to learn about love than she ever thought possible ...

Verdictdidn't like it didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it  - Fantastic, Easy Read with amazing Characters with an insight to what happens at universities. Loved every minute of it!

I had never heard of Rainbow Rowell or read any of her books until I had recently bought her newest book Fangirl the other month and my good friend Katie recommended reading it...A good choice indeed. Fangirl is fab! Completely and utterly fan-bloody-tastic...

Fangirl is about Cath and Wren identical twins and are about to embark on a new life at university. Cath and Wren are two completely different people although they make look the same, Cath loves fanfiction and writing but is ever so shy and hides away in her room..whereas Wren is the party animal, loves boys, drinking and easily makes new friends. Cath is totally out of her comfort zone being at university until she meets her roommate Reagen and her best friend Levi..who would be her friends for life.

I just totally loved every minute of Fangirl, it gave me an insight to university life but also to an insight to Cath's life so hooked with The Simon Snow series.
I don't want to give too much away with the book because I feel you will just get sucked into the lives of Cath and Wren super quickly.

Fangirl is a great book with plenty going on, laughter and families and new friendships. It is an easy read and you will love the characters so much, they all easily come together and the style of writing is just perfect.
