I am a fan of Fangirl, no doubt. Rainbow Rowell’s novel is fun and frothy, then smacks you upside the head with emotions. Here are my top three reasons for loving the novel, with quotes to back it up.
1. The dialogue is the smart, snappy stuff of dreams.
2. The humor is the cover-your-mouth-to-hide-your-smirk kind.
3. Cath is a freakin’ endearing romantic.
Bonus: Have you seen the book trailer?
I’m glad I gave into the hype and read the adorable Fangirl. I went on to read Eleanor & Park, Rowell’s previous YA novel with a main character and setting less relatable than Cath and college, but even more distinct. I’m not entirely certain which I like better, and that’s a wonderful dilemma to have.
