Fangirl by Rowell, Rainbow (2014) Paperback - Rainbow Rowell

The author Rainbow Rowell often writes about people who talk a lot, people who feel like they're screwing up, and people who fall in love. This is especially true in her book, Fangirl. The main character Cath falls in love with a boy named Levi. The whole time they are falling in love, she feels like she is messing stuff up with him. She is very sceptical that he likes her or that anyone likes her. Rainbow Rowell's biography said that as a teen she was very cynical about love and romance. This is reflected in most of her books since the characters are sceptical about love but end up falling in love anyway. Also in this book Cath reads/writes fanfiction. Rainbow Rowell said that she also reads/writes fanfiction. The author and Cath have many similarities.

GEMINA
Gemina - Jay Kristoff,Amie Kaufman

This series is just crazy banana-pants fun. There are so many things in this book that I should hate – the spoiled princess + tattooed bad boy trope, the really unlikely romance under really unlikely circumstances, the horrifying creepy crawly brain-sucking alien thingies – but it all works together so brilliantly, so beautifully, that I want to wax as poetic as AIDAN the purple prose-spouting seed of Skynet. I am sooooooo glad I waited until all three books were out before I started reading this series. If it turns out book three is not the end, I will probably sprain something by shriek-sobbing in glee-despair.

quote 2018-04-19 15:36
"Levi's smile faded, and he sat back slowly" page 222
Fangirl by Rowell, Rainbow (2014) Paperback - Rainbow Rowell

I chose this quote because it showed Levi's feelings at that moment in the story. Levi is sorry that he didn't realize that he hurt Cath's feelings at first. He didn't know that Cath came to the party and saw what he was doing that upset her the most. This part of the book adds a lot of light suspense that makes you wonder what will happen next and shows Levi's feelings for Cath.

quote 2018-04-19 13:09
“I don’t trust anybody. Not anybody. And the more that I care about someone, the more sure I am they’re going to get tired of me and take off.”
― Rainbow Rowell, Fangirl
Fangirl by Rowell, Rainbow (2014) Paperback - Rainbow Rowell

This quote by the character Cath really represents her personality and the authors style. Cath isn't very confident and she has trust issues. Her mom left her when she was young and she hasn't recovered since. This affects Caths writing ability and relationships.The author, Rainbow Rowell, writes like this in a lot of her books. She talks about real issues that a lot of young people deal with. She writes about doubts, confidence, and family problems. This quote is very representative of Cath and the author.

Life During Wartime (paperback) - Lucius Shepard

I'm not quite sure what to say about this book. I had a hard time getting through the whole book only reading a few pages every so often but I absolutely loved the story and characters. I think it may have been because of Shepard's prose. After reading a little I think I just had to step away and let it "sink in" some before continuing.

Highly recommended!!
