|Fangirl - Rainbow Rowell|
I'm not sure whether I was just feeling more as though I needed a fairly light and fluffy read, or what, but once I got going with Fangirl I finished it within the day. I enjoyed it more than I recall enjoying my previous Rowell reads.
Twins Cath and Wren are off to college. Having spent most of their lives thus far doing everything together, Wren wants to put some space between them. She'd rather not share rooms, and Cath feels as though she's being left behind.
The premise is quite relateable to just about anyone off to face university or college for the first time, I think. You're not necessarily going to grow up and find your place at the same speed or in the same was as everyone else, and I guess Fangirl works to remind people that this is OK.
Throughout the book there are references to a Simon Snow series (similar to Harry Potter, I think) which the twins have spent years writing fan fiction for. I've heard that one of Rowell's upcoming books is to be a Simon Snow one. Unsure about that one.
Have you read Fangirl? If so, I'd love to know what you thought.
