Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Let’s get one thing out of the way – I read this book after reading ‘Carry On‘. Fangirl follows the story of Cath, a shy fanfiction writing nerd as she starts college without her sister and best friend, Wren, by her side. Cath meets her roommate Reagan, and Reagan’s ‘boyfriend’ Levi, and starts maneuvering her way through college life.

With full honesty, this book was slightly underwhelming. With more honesty, I’ve never really enjoyed any of Rowell’s books apart from ‘Carry On‘. Her style just isn’t for me, and I sometimes find the plot… messy? But this was a quick, gentle read that I found relatable at points, and it’d be nice if you gave it a chance 🙂
