review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-05-04 23:00
Fangirl
Fangirl by Rowell, Rainbow (2014) Paperback - Rainbow Rowell

Spoiler Alert: Fanfics are more important than living her life, boys aren't her strongest point and she misses her sister Wren too much.

 

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell is a book about a girl named Cath, she has a twin sister named Wren. They both have just started their first year at university (college). Their dad isn't stable while he's alone. Cath struggles when it comes to being social, she would rather spend her time writing up her fanfic which she is known for online. Her dream of getting her twin sister as a roommate gets flushed down the toilet. Her roommate introduces her to Levi which she ends up having an awkward romance with. 

 

This book was like any other YA Contemporary book. It involved a main character that was possibly alone, not enjoying their life that much and need someone they could turn to. With Cathy missing her sister Wren, the person she turned to was her love interest Levi which by the way he was described sounded amazing. Maybe one day I'll have my own Levi. 

 

I really enjoyed this book because I felt like I could relate to this character, being awkward when it comes to the opposite gender, wanting to put all of my effort into the fictional world. This ended up being an easy read for me!

Round-Up for March and April 2018

 

I cannot believe we are actually going into May already, the time is just flying by. 

Sadly I was super busy, sick  or had some dental work done and really didn't get a lot books read in the last couple months,hence the double round-up this month. But some book I actually just combined or a all in one addition came out for review. So the actually books read or reviewed I shoulds say is not as much. I have  few more but I still have to write up some reviews so it will have to wait.

 

I'm actually thinking about putting up a new blog since while it is also refreshing to to have one, I also miss it. But if I do I will not put so much stress on myself and just post whatever and whenever , just for fun. 

But we shall see lol.

 

I should however post a book haul it has been forever and it its getting out of control but I think I wait toll after may since there are a few books coming out yet that I really want to get and add .

 

I hope everyone is having a great time and enjoying the nice weather and everyone is reading some great books. 

 

Here are my books for March/April 2018

To get to the reviews of the books, just click the covers ;)

Too Young of an Experience For Me
Fangirl by Rowell, Rainbow (2014) Paperback - Rainbow Rowell

Enjoyed some but was annoyed by, fanfic readings, inner dialog from Cath, her teacher/paper conflict, her need to tag everything. I enjoyed her characters honesty with new experiences, her struggle with a romantic relationship, her responsibilities and how she took control of them. She read much younger than she was in some ways and much older in others. Her college experience was very realistic, and honest. The college experience, is just so far behind me I wasn't that interested in reviewing it. I loved the idea that she wrote fanfic till it was read, too much for me. I never got interested in that story, it was wasted book space in my opinion. The romance was very PG, enough said. Yes, I know I am in the minority here.

The Last Blog Post
Eleanor & Park - Rainbow Rowell

I have recently finished Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell.  Unfortunately, I did not enjoy the book as much as I would have hoped.  Contrary to this statement, a few passages did stand out to me.  One of such passages is a line on page 299 depicting Park's emotional state: "Park stayed awake for another hour or so, fueled by Coke and hurt feelings."  This sentence really helped me picture the loss Park was experiencing.  Without giving away too many details, I will say that many of my predictions were correct for this book, and that the quote is from a part of the novel where my predictions were proven correct.  

 

An interesting situation I have found myself in is that while blogging on this site, I have been able to find many books that I would love to read.  While scrolling through my dashboard, I have come across multiple book reviews for interesting books.  Although I did not expect to find many books on this site, I accept the experience wholeheartedly, and recommend it to anyone in search of a good book.

I predict that Wren and Cath will become closer as time goes on. When Wren got hurt, even though her and Cath were in a fight, Cath still went to the hospital to make sure that she was okay. Wren and Cath have also talked a lot more after that moment and became closer. These examples show that they care a lot more about each other then they did.  I know this because when people help each other, it usually means that they care for each other

 

I chose to use this video because it shows two sisters hugging which usually means that they care for each other like Cath and Wren do.
